Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms such as forgetfulness, negative thoughts, getting angry easily, anxiety and feeling blank in the brain seem to be indicative of a depression. If you are hearing any voices from your brain or if you feel that your brain is being controlled by some other force, then we have to consider the possibility of a psychotic disorder also.

Since these symptoms are causing you significant distress and disturbing your personal and social life, you need to seek treatment. There are effective treatment options for these kind of psychological problems. This can be in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist in your area for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. Don't worry, with appropriate treatment, you will be able to overcome your problems soon.

Wish you all the best.

Hello again,

Thanks for the clarification. Speaking to yourself in the mind (not aloud) may be due to high levels of anxiety and stress. When the mind becomes too stressed out, such kind of subconscious conversations can take place. Like I had mention ed before, these symptoms of anxiety, unnecessary negative thoughts, anger outbursts may be indicative of a depression.

The basic fact is that these symptoms are causing you distress and seem to be spoiling your peace of mind. So, there is no need for you to be suffering like this when there is good treatment available for such problems. There are medication which can control these unnecessary thoughts or self-speaking in the mind, and improve your mind's focus and stability. Therefore, please see a psychiatrist in person, so that you can have a thorough psychological assessment, and then appropriate treatment can be started.

Hello again,

It is best to see a psychiatrist as you problem seems to be predominantly psychological and not neurological.

I have been taking behavior meds for schizophrenia for seven years and one of the side effects is that it will make it difficult for me to get pregnant and me and my partner are ready to have kids but I m afraid that I may not be able to because of the number of years I have been on my meds. Is there a behavior med that wouldn t make it difficult for me to get pregnant and if I get off of them would I still be able to get pregnant or would the meds have been absorbed and I may never get pregnant?

i m a clinical social worker. 14 year old client has micradenoma on or near pituitary gland. Some hormone levels were elevated but she was examined by neurologist and no surgery necessary they say. Has all kinds of symptoms -- racing thoughts, visual hallucinations at times, out of control anxiety, rage outbursts, trouble reasoning and little access to insight, preoccupied about her body and somatic complaints, defiance. However she doesn t really seem bipolar or schizophrenic, though she was Dx d bipolar. I don t think it looks psychiatric, it seems so odd and doesn t add up to any one Dx. Neurologists told parents the tumor had nothing to do wiht any of this, what do you think??

My 18 year old high school son needs help and testing for hereditary diseases which he has symptoms of from both sides of the family, including ADD or ADHD, Bi-Polar, Aspergers, and Paranoia Schizophrenia. Also, possibly dyslexia and/or the math version may be affecting him, (he is home-schooled and beginning 11th grade) and he has sleep disorder problems. He has already been diagnosed with anxiety. Does St. Lukes Quakertown test for these ailments I have listed? We live close by, and like St. Luke s that cared for my husband, and son s father before he died in August. Traveling is difficult for me because I am handicapped. Both my son and I may be helped by some grief counseling. I am 59 and also need some testing done for symptoms of inherited disorders, and I have some diagnosises already. I need treatment too. Can you help us?
