Handling Careless Problems?
Hello. I am 25 years old, but I often feel careless, often dropping things when I hold them, tripping on the road even though I wear shoes without rights. Breaking plates, forgetting to bring something. But my other activities are smooth and uninterrupted, I live orderly and neatly. Especially when I’m panicked suddenly I forget to put things, etc. What should I do in therapy, because sometimes it’s embarrassing when in a public place .
Hello Zahra Rainyrain,
Clumsiness is sometimes experienced by someone, such as tripping on the road, accidentally bumping things on the table, dropping a pencil, and so on. Clumsiness can arise due to movement disorders, impaired coordination, and reaction to a stimulus. The sudden onset of clumsiness can be a clinical sign of an organic or psychological disease.
Some diseases or conditions that can cause impaired coordination, movement, and memory are:
Interference due to alcohol abuse
Excessive stress or fatigue (lack of rest)
To determine the cause of the clumsiness complaints, the doctor needs to take a complete history about the history of the complaint, accompanying symptoms, risk factors, treatment history, history of your previous illness, etc. The doctor also needs to do a physical or neurological examination to evaluate your motor, sensory, coordination, movement functions. Supporting examinations such as CT-scan / MRI, blood tests, carried out if from the examination of a doctor suspecting certain diseases.
Handling of clumsiness is certainly based on the causes found from the examination. Treating basic disease will have an impact on improving symptoms. Although in some of the above diseases, impaired coordination, movement, and memory can be permanent or progressively burdensome. Clumsiness arising from psychological factors can be treated by administering anti-anxiety drugs and also through psychotherapy (cognitive behavioral therapy). Try to get enough sleep, avoid excessive alcohol and coffee drinks, regular exercise and consumption of nutritious foods. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
