Thanks for the reply .
Well from the answers you have given to my questions ,it suggests that you most probably are suffering from Adult Attention deficit disorder ( Adult ADD ) , as by your self admission you find it harder to concentrate on things such as reading, speaking for long duration as you loose your concentration in between , thus creating a void in your train of thought, and most importantly you were able to do all this well around 1 year back.But , i will also suggest that first of all you shall get a CT scan brain done and EEG ( electro encephalopgraphy ) done to rule out organic brain pathology and seizure disorder.
Well , adult ADD is quite common and medications are available for the same , but first you need to get your self evaluated by a psychiatrist for Adult ADD , which is to be done by carrying out a Mental status examination by the psychiatrist , on a one to one basis.
I am mentioning below , the treatment regime which you should discuss with your psychiatrist and get started on it .
1) Psychostimulant drugs for Adult ADD--The best and the most widely used psychostimulant drugs ( central nervous system stimulants ) are Adderall / addarrall XR( amphetamines, amphetamine salts ) and Ritalin / Concerta ( methylphenidate ).
sO, OUT OF THESE TWO ANY ONE CAN BE STARTED , BUT ,first your diagnosis of Adult ADD , needs to be established by the psychiatrist , which itself should follow 2 investigations such as CT scan brain and EEG .
If CT Scan brain or/ and EEG show organic brain pathology ,then nstead of consulting a psychiatrist you should consult a Neurologist . But if both CT scan and EEG are normal and rule out any organic cause , then , you should consult a psychiatrist and get your self evaluated for Adult ADD.
SO, I SUMARIZE THE STEPS THAT YOU NEED TO TAKE TO REACH THE CAUSE OF YOUR SYMPTOMS AND ACCORDINLY GET YOURSELF EVALUATED BY THE MOST SUITABLE SPECIALIST.
1) Get a CT scan brain and EEG done to rule out Organic brain disease and seizure.
2) If CT SCAN AND EEG show abnormality , then consult a Neurologist and get started on his treatment.
3) If CT scan and eeg are normal , then consult a psychiatrist and get your self evaluated for adult ADD , and get started on the medication mentioned above , after dicussing it with your psychiatrist..
I wish you all best of health. Take care.. God bless..
I hope my answer serves your query according to your satisfaction.
