To accurately determine the presence of neurosis, as a psychological state alien to your body, you can seek help from a qualified specialist. He will help to make an accurate diagnosis and identify the true causes of the disease. There are also certain symptoms of this condition that will help determine the presence of a neurosis.
Neuroses belong to a group of psychogenically determined painful conditions that are associated with the patient's internal psychological conflict. The neurosis is characterized by a variety of clinical manifestations. It is worth noting that a person is aware of the presence of the disease and its nature, understanding the alienation of this condition for his body. As a rule, neuroses are not accompanied by gross and psychological disturbances in the patient's behavior. However, this condition can significantly affect the quality of life. The emergence of neurosis is often promoted and preceded by the appearance in a person of an unresolved long-term both internal and interpersonal psychological conflict.
In medical practice, several types of neurotic disorders are distinguished: neurasthenia, hysterical (conversion) disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders (obsessive doubts, actions, thoughts), anxiety-phobic disorders (specific, social phobias, etc.).
Neurosis can manifest itself in different ways. In the case of anxiety-phobic disorder, the patient often complains of fear and anxiety. In a panic state, systematic anxiety attacks occur, accompanied by various vegetative complaints (a feeling of lack of air, sweating, palpitations, etc.). Often, such a state causes the fear of being in an awkward position, going crazy. With the manifestation of a certain phobia, a person begins to avoid uncomfortable situations.
Neurasthenia manifests itself when there is a discrepancy between moral and physical stress, a situation of lack of time and human capabilities. In this case, there are complaints of vegetative manifestations, sleep disturbances, irritability, weakness. Conversion disorders arise from the phenomenon of conversion - a certain transformation of psychic energy. This state is associated with an intrapersonal conflict. Such a disorder has bodily manifestations: motor (convulsions), sensitive, etc.
If you find any symptoms of neurotic disorders, you should seek the advice of a psychotherapist. As a rule, two approaches are used to treat neurosis: psychotherapy and psychopharmacotherapy. In the group of the most used psychotropic drugs, antidepressants from a number of SSRIs (Fluvoxamine, Sertraline, Paroxetine, Fluoxetine) and tranquilizers (Atarax, Grandaxin, Phenazepam, Relanium) should be noted. Such drugs for the treatment of neurotic disorders are prescribed by the attending physician.
