Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a student. When I sit for study, I just start feeling distractions from small noises and things. Most of the time, I go to imaginations of things I want to create and sometimes, I suddenly start daydreaming about different kinds of thoughts. Sometimes, I start to remember about past sequences or people, what they think about me, etc. I am suffering from lack of concentration and focus and this is increasing continuously. What should I do to concentrate on my studies fully?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern. The recurrent distractibility could be occurring due to anxiety and should be evaluated. Intrusive thoughts during studying result in distraction. If remembering the things related to the past and imagining things are causing distress, then that is most probably due to anxiety and need treatment. Please consult a psychiatrist for evaluation of this problem and for treatment. If there are no intrusive thoughts, then supplements containing Omega fatty acids, Vitamin B12 and E can be used to improve the concentration. It will help in improving focus in your case. Thank you.
