I am very anxious and am getting terrible grades in

Patient

Q: I am very anxious and am getting terrible grades in school due to my lack of focus.

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Fall in grades and lack of concentration is a common problem, which can be overcome with motivation. However, sometimes pathological problems like anemia can also cause similar problems.
I will advise you to get a blood test done and also take a multivitamin-multimineral supplement like Neurobion Forte.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
