I am loosing my concentrations in my work. In night I am not getting good sleep. Help me. Bring out from the problem.

This is not a good sign for you. It means that the activities on daily basis which you are suppose to do are not as per your liking or you are not capable of doing them. The best thing you can do is accept what your situation is, feel confident that you can make it better, start looking for solutions to the problems and start acting on the solutions. The best we can do is effort. Hard-work always pays, it might seem to you at stages that everything is going out of control but relax, thinking negative will not help. If the point of concern is a female or disappointment in love then you are too young right now to get your self messed up in such situations. Do not let emotions dominate your brains. If the point of concern is education and career, then just do not keep on expecting and start hardworking, you will get returns later on the right time. 1. Exercise daily 2. Have almonds raisins, milk etc 3. Add fruits and salads in diet hope you a speedy recovery.

Hi, I am 21 years old. Sir/madam can you please tell me how should I increase my memory power? My memory power slightly low so how can I increase it?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mindpower depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. You should be able to understand the passage or the information given perfectly so as to help your brain to retain the information or knowledge. Once it is retained properly, recollection happens whenever a memory relation is given. Understanding usually requires creative learning methods and repetition. Providing rest to your brain every half hour while studying continuously help improve concentration. Physical exercises, entertainment, socialization improves memory. Diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts also improves memory. Mind games like Sudoku too help. Please understand these facts and apply them on your daily routine. Take care.

Dear sir / madam. I am alcoholic and unable to control. My weight had been reduced by 10 kg now. I am 47 years male. Please suggest me medicine so that I can give it up and make my family happy. All are disturbed due to my present condition.

please remember it is very easy to get addicted but very difficult to quit. You need to meditate and talk to your support groups and find what" you" really are and what you would like to" become. Also remember, for long term addictions it is common to relapse. It is like you are repeating the same mistake and wished if only you could help it! the point is to accept and forgive yourself and be stronger next time and make a commitment to yourself first.

Hello depression due to loss of close people is quite common. This depends on how close relationship you have shared. Try to think about positive aspects of your life rather then loss you had.

I think I am suffering from some psycho problem. Actually since the time of school I had no frnds and those who I have. Lost them just coz I was studious and simple guy. From there only I suffered from high mental pressure. I felt so alone and keep writing stories on this topic only and always crying in my room for hours and suddenly starting talking myself. After 5 years I was out of that but in College I lost my love and was back into that past but one girl become my friend and we had physical relationship too to let myself get out of that depression. But after 1 year of physical relationship we had. I felt ignored when I read her chats with other people. I am unable to accept that she is only my best friend. I live alone in pg and also not in contact with neither of my brothers and sisters nor any College friend but only her. I am not getting myself what I want only life as I kept on hiding things from all and crying in my room after College time. I want to know why I am unable to take things normal as other people and why keep looking in my past and so emotionally weak. Here also I am unable to define my problem properly.

Hi its basically you want to be loved by your friends and family. Since you are living alone in pg, you feel ignored and on the same hand, you have less no. Of friends which makes you realise this time and again. However, being in relationship with any one is perfectly fine until you and the other person are sharing some kind of happiness. You are more or less insecured about losing your loved ones due to the incidents that happened in your life. This is the major reason that you constantly dwell in past. You should be determined to get healthy and fine like others ; with proper medication and conselling, you ll get yourself back. I need proper detailed history of your to work upon your case and give you best possible results.

How I can improve my brain memory because it is very poor. I forget many thing during examination which is prepared by me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts (" leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a" morning person" or" evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Hi, I don't know if I have an anxiety disorder. I feel stressed and have some kind of inferiority complex about myself. I worry a lot for no reason, I sometimes don't step out of the house for days together. I feel really conscious and nervous when i'm outside. I also sometimes feel unwanted.

Dear, from the given description, I see some anxiety disorder. But there is nothing to worry. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi my age is 20 and I am a college student. About a month ago I had severe panic attack during my flu and had to be rushed to the hospital. I was having shortness of breath with fever and other flu symptoms. We thought that it was an asthma attack or I was having some problem in my lungs since I was a regular smoker. However after few days all my reports were normal and I was released from the hospital. After a week I had the same thing and again I thought that I would just die. I was again rushed to the hospitals and this time they gave me shots of antibiotics and deriphyllin with some antacids. However after a few days when again my reports were normal I was suggested a psychiatrist and he diagnosed that I was suffering from anxiety disorder. I did not have any type of anxiety or panic before in my life so I refused to take the meds and decided that I will fight this on my own. One thing I observed that after eating full stomach I wud get severe episodes of panic or anxiety. Then I came back home and I was not better at all so I did a bit of my own research and found that when histamine increases in your body you can get anxiety attacks so I bought a cetrizine pill from the nearby drug store and ate it, I was feeling a hell lot of better the other day! so I told this to my doc and he prescribed me cetrizine for another 15 days. I also had blocked or stuffy nose so I was given levocitrazin hydrochloride and I had a weird tightness in my throat for which I was given some kind of gastric medicine. Those pills worked like magic all my anxiety gone I was feeling way better and started going out again. A mistake I did maybe that I started smoking again but very less like one cigarette when my friends were with me. I again caught cold without any fever and my anxiety was back. The cetrizine pills stopped working I am again having itchy skin however sneezing and itchy eyes are not happening and again my stomach is creating hell lot of acid and days and nights have become like hell for me. I can not eat because I get too much anxious or panicked after eating and my BP is too low. nausea DIZZINESS lightheadedness STUFFY NOSE AND CHOKING THROAT WITH ANXIETY AND SKIN ITCHING have become my day to day symptoms. I am not having fever. I am afraid to go out I do not have enough energy even to get my life straight. I am in a very bad place. I have given an allergy test whose reports are still to come. I also have ITCHY SCALP and sweat makes me itch more. I really need some advice. I do not even know which doctor to go to. I just want this misery to end.

Hi To overcome your anxiety, relax your mind. Don't think negatively. You have a negative assumption that after eating you will have panic attacks. Change your thinking. Think positively and give positive affirmations to yourself. Learn relaxation techniques and practice daily. Deep breathing will also help you. Develop good hobbies and engage yourself. Join yoga or pranayama classes. This gives you relief.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

You need to relax- over thinking is not good. Learn to take things easy. Anxiety will definitely affect your sex life and marriage. Adopt a healthy routine- eat healthy, drink lots of water, exercise everyday for 45 mins to 1 hour. Spend time with family and friends. You should have positive thinking, be optimistic about things. Don't expect from people- the more you think in terms of that people should behave in these ways only, and the more you try to change others, more you will be stressed. Look at the positives in others and have faith in yourself.

Hi lybrate-user, Despite some antidepressants’ sexual side effects, your best option for overcoming depression and its negative effects on sex is to get treatment. Beyond medication, you may want to try non-pharmaceutical methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (a treatment method that addresses negative thoughts while supporting positive behaviors). It may not be an immediate fix, but it’s a worthwhile approach to managing both depression and sex problems. Also, Preliminary research suggests that 20 to 30 minutes of physical activity may be just the libido enhancer you need. In fact, exercise can boost both your emotional health and your sex drive. Exercise gets your blood moving, releases some of the mood-enhancing chemicals that come along with a good workout, and gets your bod into better shape (making you feel better about yourself, too). Anxiety, low self-esteem, and guilt are common causes of erectile dysfunction. Its advised to seek psychotherapy from a psychologist online or in person. All the best.
