Hello Ram,

At your age, you do not have to worry about memory problems. In fact, what you feel as memory problem is actually decreased concentration due to which you are not able to focus properly when you read. This can be because of many reasons like stress, lack of interest or distractions.

Here are some things you can do:

1. Set short term and long term goals, so that you know why exactly it is important for your to study. This will increase your motivation and also your interest in studies.

2. Study with full concentration (without distractions), even if it is only for a short period (1 hour). Reading for hours without focus does not help you in long run.

3. Take breaks in between so that your mind does not drift away while studying. You can utilize the break to relax and refocus.

4. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". Integrate some play or exercise in your routine. Deep breathing exercises will also help calm your nerves.

5. Do not compromise on sleep time as sleeping less will affect your concentration.

If you can follow these (all self help methods and costs only your time), then it may not be necessary to even consult a doctor. All the best.

My friend had a tumour near the spinal cord and she had a surgery to remove it. But on the next day she started to bleed too much and she lost her memory. Her heart also stopped once. Now she cannot remember anything in the past and she forgets everything happened on the next day. Is both of the short-term and long-term memory loss curable? How long does it take usually? thank you

I have been having pain in the back of my head by my neck and goes all down to the middle of my back. Also my neck is stiff, my head is heavy. I have experienced dizziness, memory loss and pains and numbness in my arms. I have trouble sleeping and have muscle weekness. I also about a month ago had only what I can discribe as a prism effect in my left eye. It only lasted an hour or so but was slightly disturbing. Please tell me what to do.

Hello Sir

I have been over-masturbating and I'm experiencing these symptoms :

-Memory loss
-Lack of concentration
-Fatigue. Feeling tired all the time
-Lower back pain
-Stress / Anxiety
-Weak Erection
-Premature Ejaculation
-fuzzy vision
-Feel shy to talk to other

On a site that I’ve read (I think it’s WWW.WWWW.WW , the doctor said lower my masturbation to about 2-3 times/day and take his medicine located on the site some where to replace the brain and health chemistry that I have lost such as the brain’s acetycholine, dopamine, and serotonin levels.

I'm still a teenager (18 years old) so I don't want to be ordering a product or else my parents will find out and that will put me in the most awkward situation.

Could you please suggest some medicine that I can buy from a store, please respond ASAP!!

Thank you

My partner took 4 1mg tablets of rapinirol tonight and has had significant memory loss and confusion. He was literally bouncing off the walls, didn t know who I was or who my 7 year old son was, swetting profusely, had no idea where he was. He was diagnosed with cellulitis and put on Bactrim 800 mg and Keflex 500 mg. Would these antibiotics interact with this drug? He is coming around a little now and I am not sure what to do. Any suggestions would be helpful.

hello, I am 16yrs old and have got into the habit of masturbuating since march. First the frequency was about twice in a day then it reduced to once in 2 days now it has further reduced to twice in a week. I would like to know that, has it affected my growth and led to a memory loss because now i forget things more frequently then earlier and also my height is 5 5 and is not increasing since last one year. So does masturbuation demage brain neurons?
