I cannot stand loud talking or more noise. I get irritated and often scream. I get tense if my work as per my plan does not go.

You need to be realistic and analyse why you are getting irritated. Accept your short tempered nature and slowly work towards improving your nature. Get yourself checked for hypertension and diabetes. Become active and focus on your work and hobbies, which will give you confidence to overcome your shortcomings. Daily exercise (yoga, pranayam, meditation) can bring wonderful results in no time. Stop being a perfectionist and accept your errors and also of others with humbleness. Bring in humour in life.

I have relationship problems. Actually my boyfriend want to separate from me. But due attachment and love I can't do this. I tried all the things to sort out this. But it doesn't work. From the very beginning my boyfriend loved me a lot till 1 year. But today he consider me a tension only. Due to this he insults me a lot. I had talked to him regarding this problem he said that I didn't know before that you are this type of girl. I said why you always insults me then he replies" you also did the same to me" If I question him again and again he start says that you always fights I don't want to talk to you. Then my self respect also get hurts. I miss my boyfriend's care and love which he had given me before. What should I do?

You should never want to be in a relationship where you are not wanted, period. Whatever the history of this relationship, if he says he wants a separation, then go for it. It may make you very uncomfortable in the beginning but you will get over it in time. I do not if there is any truth in his accusation that you fight too much and you insult him too. If it has any truth to it, you will need to look into that and work with a relationship counselor to change that. Usually, when a relationship has ben through a long duration, the real nature of the individual shows up over time. Now, that nature may not be very good too. Please do not pursue a relationship by force: why would you want to continue this friendship, if he ios not interested. This is predictably going to ruin both your lives. Just accept this reality and after the initial difficulties, you will overcome. Yes, you need to do all this to preserve your self-respect.

Actually my problem is I can't walk most times doctors are saying its because stress. Please advice

Psychologist, Calicut
Actually my problem is I can't walk most times doctors are saying its because stress. Please advice
Feeling weak in the knees or experiencing “jelly” or “rubber” legs is a common stress response reaction. Most people in fearful or stressful situations experience weak legs. The degree of weakness often is directly proportional to the degree of fear or stress. Also, since stress hormones are stimulants, a body that is persistently stress response overstimulated can become tired and feel weak. This weakness often is experienced in the limbs, such as the arms and legs. Fortunately, stress-caused weak legs is not caused by a serious disease, and is therefore, not a cause for concern. Once your stress and anxiousness have been addressed, this symptom diminishes and eventually disappears.

Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

Dear , memory is very tricky thing. You are actually talking about recollection here. You will not be able to recollect if you are anxious, busy, stressed, tired etc. We also find it difficult to recollect many things which we never memorized. There is nothing wrong in that. Still, if you feel you have memory problems, we will do a series of tests to ascertain your memory. Initially I will assess you through telephone interview. Please let me know if you are ready for telephone assessment. Take care.

Autism in Children

CCT, FRCPCH , MRCPCH, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Delayed Speech: Can it be autism?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders, characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, and restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behaviour. Males are four times more likely to have an ASD than females. A recent study in US found 1 in 68 children suffering from autism.
What are some common signs of autism?

The hall feature of ASD is impaired social interaction. As early as infancy, a baby with ASD may be unresponsive to people or focus intently on one item to the exclusion of others for long periods of time. A child with ASD may appear to develop normally and then withdraw and become indifferent to social engagement.

Children with an ASD may fail to respond to their names and often avoid eye contact with other people. They have difficulty interpreting what others are thinking or feeling because they can’t understand social cues, such as tone of voice or facial expressions, and don’t watch other people’s faces for clues about appropriate behaviour. They lack empathy.

Many children with an ASD engage in repetitive movements such as rocking, or self-abusive behaviour such as biting or head-banging. They also tend to start speaking later than other children. Children with an ASD don’t know how to play interactively with other children. Some speak in a sing-song voice about a narrow range of favourite topics, with little regard for the interests of the person to whom they are speaking.

Children with characteristics of an ASD may have co-occurring conditions, including Fragile X syndrome (which causes mental retardation), tuberous sclerosis, epileptic seizures, Tourette syndrome, learning disabilities, and attention deficit disorder. About 20 to 30 percent of children with an ASD develop epilepsy by the time they reach adulthood.
How is autism diagnosed?

Very early indicators that require evaluation by an expert include:
• no babbling or pointing by age 1
• no single words by 16 months or two-word phrases by age 2
• no response to name
• loss of language or social skills
• poor eye contact
• excessive lining up of toys or objects
• No smiling or social responsiveness.

If you find any of these features in your child, please consult the local pediatrician or child neurologist if available who can assess your child in detail. There is no single blood test to diagnose autism. However, the doctor needs to look into certain disorders in which children have similar features or having features of autism in addition to other signs of that disorder. E.g. Tuber sclerosis, Landau-kleffner syndrome (a form of Epilpesy), other childhood epilepsies, some metabolic and genetic disease. So your doctor may do some blood test, hearing assessment, EEG, etc. depending upon the presenting features and assessment.

What role does inheritance play?

Twin and family studies strongly suggest that some people have a genetic predisposition to autism. Identical twin studies show that if one twin is affected, there is up to a 90 percent chance the other twin will be affected. In families with one child with ASD, the risk of having a second child with the disorder is approximately 5 percent, or one in 20. This is greater than the risk for the general population.

Do symptoms of autism change over time?
For many children, symptoms improve with treatment and with age. Children whose language skills regress early in life (before the age of 3) appear to have a higher than normal risk of developing epilepsy or seizure-like brain activity. During adolescence, some children with an ASD may become depressed or experience behavioural problems, and their treatment may need some modification as they transition to adulthood. People with an ASD usually continue to need services and supports as they get older, but many are able to work successfully and live independently or within a supportive environment.

How is autism managed?

There is no cure for ASDs. However, it is important to diagnose it early and look for associated conditions like ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactive disorder), Epilepsy, sleep disorders, etc. Earlier is intervention, better is the outcome. Therapies and behavioral interventions are designed to remedy specific symptoms and can bring about substantial improvement. The ideal treatment plan coordinates therapies and interventions that meet the specific needs of individual children.

Educational/behavioural interventions: Therapists use highly structured and intensive skill-oriented training sessions to help children develop social and language skills, such as Applied Behavioural Analysis. Family counselling for the parents and siblings of children with an ASD often helps families cope with the particular challenges of living with a child with an ASD.
Medications: Doctors may prescribe medications for treatment of specific autism-related symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Antipsychotic medications are used to treat severe behavioural problems. Seizures can be treated with one or more anticonvulsant drugs. Medication used to treat people with attention deficit disorder can be used effectively to help decrease impulsivity and hyperactivity.
Other therapies: There are a number of controversial therapies or interventions available, but few, if any, are supported by scientific studies. Parents should use caution before adopting any unproven treatments. Although dietary interventions have been helpful in some children, parents should be careful that their child’s nutritional status is carefully followed.

Conclusion: Autism is seen commonly now a day. The main features are delayed speech, poor eye contact and social interaction and restricted interest with repetitive behaviour. Parents and physician should aware of its early symptoms so that early intervention can be started.
