He is having delayed speech and language development. You need to work on his receptive and expressive language. Vocabulary development. It is good if you can arrange some speech therapy sessions for him.

Schizophrenia: Can Genetics be the Reason Behind it?

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Schizophrenia: Can Genetics be the Reason Behind it?

Schizophrenia is a psychiatric disorder in which a person’s mood, knowledge, thought and several other characteristics gets disturbed. We can notice most of the adults and old people with few symptoms of schizophrenia, which are most commonly left unidentified. The exact cause of schizophrenia is not yet known. The person feels that they are being constantly watched, they feel the presence of someone or something, which is not actually there. They are always suspicious and think that other people are gossiping and thinking about them.

Possible causes of Schizophrenia
Though the exact cause of schizophrenia is not known there are few factors, which contribute to the cause of schizophrenia.

  1. Genetic factors: People with a family history of schizophrenia are at higher risk of getting schizophrenia.
  2. Environmental factors: Environmental factors include excessive stress during pregnancy or later stages of life. Several other factors during pregnancy and childhood are responsible for causing schizophrenia. These factors are:
    1. Decreased oxygen level during delivery due to premature birth or prolonged labour
    2. Parental loss or separation in early stages of life
    3. Parental exposure to virus or during infancy
    4. Childhood physical or sexual abuse
    5. Abnormal brain structures and brain chemistry

Sings and symptoms of schizophrenia

  1. Hallucination: To see, feel or hear anything that really does not exist is known as hallucination.
  2. Delusion: A thought or belief of a person, which is either false or impossible in reality is known as delusion.
  3. Thought and speech disturbances: The thought process and speech of a schizophrenic will be disorganized, due to which he or she  will fumble or is distracted as they are unable to align their thoughts.
  4. Difficulty in concentrating: It is difficult for people suffering from schizophrenia to concentrate on the task at hand.
  5. Erratic behaviour: People suffering from schizophrenia tend to behave erratically, either they will be too jumpy or will be perfectly still for hours at a stretch. Most people belief that those who are suffering from schizophrenia are often violent in nature, which actually is not the case.

Treatment for schizophrenia
Schizophrenia can be treated, if identified at an early stage. It is best advised to consult a psychiatrist the moment you spot the symptoms. Anti psychotic drugs, self help behaviour change, counselling and rehabilitation are few treatment modalities available for schizophrenia.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi, I am 24 years old, I have too much tension without any reason. What should I do? please help me.

Hi, I am 24 years old, I have too much tension without any reason. What should I do? please help me.
It is hardly likely that there is no reason for your tension. If you do not have a conscious reason, then the unconscious mind will have one for sure. If there are reasons buried in your unconscious mind, it is likely that the reasons may have been precipitated from childhood experiences, or a long time ago. The reason you have not been perturbed by it this far is because these may have been suppressed for years, and at an undue moment when stressful factors may have lowered your defenses, it is bound to come up and trouble you. You need to talk to a counselor and that person will help you identify these influences from childhood, and then you could work on them. Any which way, learn about your emotions and learn how to express them appropriately.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

I think you are asking question for your son. The concentration on studies depend on various factor like interest in the subject, ability to understand it, anxiety and other factors. We need to evaluate your son in detail to understand the problem and treat it.

I am married, my wife is 36 years of age. She is very possessive on me. She thinks all the men are bad. She doesnt let me interact with my daughter or son without her presence. Same way she does to my son and daughter. This looks strange to me. I feel she was affected earlier in her child hood. When my mother once was with my son inside the room, she shouted and made a big mess of it. She also always fights with me. I am just helpless dont know what to do. Some times even want to divorce her. Please advice

If you have been continuing medications unaltered for last 20 years it is rather difficult to quit them at once. I hope you have been taking them under the supervision of a psychiatrist. If not, then I am afraid you might have become dependent on these medications. It is advisable that you consult your treating physician or a psychiatrist to consider weaning off these medicines after a detailed evaluation of your present status and symptoms.

How much chances are there of depression due to intake of marijuana, smoking and alcohols?

How much chances are there of depression due to intake of marijuana, smoking and alcohols?
It can work both ways: you can become depressed due to the effects of these substances and because you are depressed you could resort to these substances to alleviate you from it. They can act as stimulants and as well as depressants depending to a large extent on your needs, apart from their own actions.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.

I am staying separate from wife for about 5 years now due to legal issues. Now when the case is about to come to an end chances are becoming to get reunited. Apart from her mental/ emotional state. Is there any way to make out if she was leading active sexual life in past 5 years.

If you want to accept her, accept her completely then there should be no room of how she has been in those 5 years. Apart from that you need to trust her to build your relationship again, otherwise just let it go because this doubt may always be there and may lead to unhealthy relationship.

Sir, I am very very lack of intelligent, kindly suggest me how I develop my intelligent.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, intelligence is your knowledge. Memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

I have stammering problem. Childhood time I difficulty to speak with others I am also taking speech therapy. Last 1 years But Therapy not effective. Pl give me solution and advise for I continue speech therapy? N recovery is possible.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
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.
