In medical writings, many diseases are mentioned, including somatic diseases. For this group of disorders, certain symptoms are characteristic. Knowing what signs are accompanied by such pathologies, it is easier to identify them at the initial stage of development and cure.
Somatic diseases - what are these diseases?
To understand this, the term used in medicine for their characterization will help. From the Greek language “σῶμα” - literally translated “body”. For this reason, somatic diseases are physical disorders caused by psychological trauma or disorder. This relationship is very close. It is explained by the fact that the body is a single system: the output of one element leads to the "breakdown" of another.
Stages of treatment
The most basic stage in the treatment of psychosomatic disorder is a full-fledged diagnosis, where the true reason for the formation of this type of nervous activity disorder will be clarified.
To conduct a correct differential diagnosis, an examination of several doctors of related specializations will be required, and first of all, this is a psychotherapist and a neurologist.
After a complete and accurate diagnosis is established, a treatment regimen is individually selected, where first aid should be present.
It must be remembered that the patient is very difficult to endure this condition and symptoms should be removed as soon as possible.
In parallel, the main neurometabolic active treatment begins, which is preferably carried out according to the scheme of inpatient replacement techniques in an outpatient setting. Only in the most severe cases is a hospital recommended, only if the human body is in an extremely exhausted state.
After stabilization, rehabilitation and recovery measures are required when psychotherapy and special methods of rehabilitation medicine are connected.
What are somatic diseases
Any disease of the body, skin or internal organs that is in no way associated with mental illness is considered a somatic disorder in medicine. Such pathologies include any trauma to the bones or soft tissues, infectious-viral diseases, inflammatory processes of internal organs, and so on. However, one must be able to distinguish between somatic pathology and psychosomatic disorder. If the first is a consequence of exposure to external factors, the second is the result of auto-suggestion.
So what are somatic diseases? These are pathologies that arise due to the negative impact on the body of external factors and the mental state of a person.
Today in medicine, it is widely believed that diseases appear due to nervous overstrain.
What is psychosomatics
The term translated from Greek means ‘connection of soul and body’.
And today it is already a whole area in psychology and medicine, studying how the human psyche reacts to the outside world and affects all body systems.
According to this science, all diseases originate in the psychological discrepancies of the soul, subconscious and thoughts of a person.
Freud, like no other, accurately expressed the essence of psychosomatics in one sentence: “If we drive some kind of problem at the door, then it, in the form of a symptom of illness, penetrates through the window.”
This suggests that the disease is inevitable if a person ignores his problems, instead of solving them.
Of course, it is common for every person to drive away thoughts that are unpleasant to him.In psychology, this is called "crowding out" - the protective mechanism of the psyche. However, if we have a constant habit of not analyzing problems, we refuse to take life lessons, we are afraid to face the truth, then repressed problems do not disappear. They just go to the level of physiology.
Why precisely at the level of physiology? Probably due to the fact that the physical body most clearly demonstrates integrity, an ordered structure.
You can not say about the unstable emotional and mental nature.
It must also be recognized that we are not only physical and spiritual beings, but also social: from childhood we educate us, teach us the norms of behavior accepted in society, stimulate us in every way to fight for the primacy, often deciding for us who we are and who we should become .
Therefore, most often our mental image of ourselves is very different from reality. We think one thing, feel the other, say the third. And this is a real conflict between the psyche and the body, which will imbalance us at all levels. Moreover, the "sociality" cultivated in the mind of a person can create fictional "insurmountable difficulties" that manifest themselves through psychosomatic illnesses. If you understand psychosomatics, “decipher” the messages of the soul encoded in diseases, you can see all your limitations, which are formed not only in the recent past, but also in utero and in childhood. This will be the starting point for healing from diseases.
But more on that later. In the meantime, a little history.
Somatic diseases - what is it
Physical illnesses arising from psychological trauma are called somatic. Explain this behavior of the human body is quite simple. For this it is necessary to remember that the body as a whole is a single mechanism. In this case, due to a break in the psyche, the physiological state fails.
To date, scientists have proven that most diseases appear as a result of nervous overstrain. This evidence is fully justified - because the modern way of life carries constant nervous tension, negative thoughts, irritation and a bad mood, which entails a deterioration in the state of the human body.
The feeling of mental and physical health of one’s body can be safely called a somatic state. To be more precise, a somatic state is how a person currently feels.
In medicine, there is such a thing as "somatic status", as a rule, it is described during the diagnosis of the patient:
- height, weight and general condition of the patient,
- visual condition of the skin and mucous membranes,
- A short description of all human systems and organs.
Deterioration in the functioning of internal organs is often caused by stressful situations, anxiety, or constant fears. It should be noted that diseases resulting from these factors are rather difficult to diagnose and treat.
The difference between an infectious disease and a somatic
The first group of pathologies has such features:
- Specificity - in other words, a specific pathogen causes a certain ailment. Somatic diseases affect various systems and organs, while ailments have a special pathogenesis.
- Contagiousness - this is a contagious disease or, in other words, the ease with which the pathogen is transmitted from one organism to another. The somatic nervous system has a different damage mechanism.
- Disease development - In an infectious disease, it lasts from the moment of infection to the onset of clinical manifestations. Somatic pathologies have a slightly different pattern of development. Such diseases have no incubation period: they are not contagious.
Psychosomatic disease groups
When the patient goes to the doctor with complaints, it becomes necessary to undergo examinations and take tests.This will help him determine the diagnosis and prescribe an effective treatment.
However, if, after the course of therapy, the disease receded, and soon returned again, it can be assumed that its causes are psychosomatic in nature and it is unlikely that it can be completely eliminated with medication.
The list of possible diseases of a psychosomatic nature can be grouped as follows:
1) problems with the respiratory system,
2) diseases of the heart and blood vessels,
3) eating disorder (obesity, anorexia nervosa, bulimia),
4) diseases of the gastrointestinal tract,
5) diseases of the endocrine system,
6) problems with the skin,
7) Diseases associated with gynecology,
8) Disorders of a sexual nature,
10) Diseases of an infectious origin,
11) Diseases of the musculoskeletal system,
12) Psycho-vegetative dysfunction,
Psychosomatic disorder is often confused with somatic pathology and a person falls into a forced “vicious circle” of going to various doctors, examinations, drinks mountains of unnecessary and often very harmful to his health pills.
And this circle is so strong and vicious that it even comes to serious surgical intervention, people completely lose their healthy organs or body parts in vain, and the problem is compounded and aggravated. There are other organs that begin to "hurt" as well.
This continues until there is either a competent doctor who will send to a psychotherapist, or a person accidentally receives the necessary information about his condition and comes to the doctor’s only necessary, in these cases.
In severe cases of manifestations of a psychosomatic disorder, a person does not distinguish any changes in his mental state in his condition, since all his attention is directed at combating symptoms and, unfortunately, not only the patient himself, but also often doctors try to deal with the symptoms, forgetting about the main - that you need to fight the cause, and the symptoms, if there is no reason, will go away themselves.
Psychosomatic symptoms can have the most diverse orientation. From headache to heel pain. No organ can be protected from possible manifestations of a psychosomatic disorder. And that is why it is so important not to miss this state of the nervous system, otherwise the treatment will be meaningless, and the underlying disease will continue to develop.
List of somatic diseases
From a medical point of view, practically any deviations from the norm in the work of internal organs and systems of the body relate to somatic diseases. This includes problems with the gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular abnormalities, parasitic infestations, pathologies of the liver or kidneys, soft tissue injuries and hereditary genetic diseases. Psychosomatic disorders, on the contrary, have a not so extensive list and, as a rule, come down to only seven possible pathologies:
- duodenal ulcer and stomach,
- rheumatoid arthritis,
- gastric colitis
- bronchial asthma,
In addition, modern doctors often refer to psychosomatic disorders as coronary heart disease, obesity or, on the contrary, anorexia, diabetes mellitus. Unlike ordinary somatic diseases of the body, ailments caused by a mental disorder are difficult to treat, often turn into a chronic form and may be accompanied by unrelated symptoms.
Examples of somatic diseases
Such pathologies are usually not associated with the presence of a person’s mental disorder.
Many somatic diseases are characterized by pronounced physical manifestations. These are inflammatory, bacterial and viral pathologies, disorders of the digestive tract, heart, blood vessels, mechanical damage.Chronic somatic diseases are usually distinguished by subtle signs. But sometimes there are periods of exacerbation. Common somatic diseases include those that people with a certain type of personality and way of thinking are prone to. Here is a sample list of such pathologies:
- Ulcerative processes in the digestive tract. Appear in nervous, anxious individuals. Due to strong feelings in the digestive organs, a lot of acid is formed. As a result, ulcers occur.
- Skin diseases. Occur against a background of depressive states. In this case, the skin constantly itches, peels.
- Asthma. Appears on the background of fears, stressful situations that negatively affect the activity of the heart.
- Arthritis Occur due to mental overload.
- Hypertension is chronic.
- Ischemic heart disease.
Unpleasant, and sometimes even painful sensations that do not have physiological support, are called senestopathy. As a rule, they begin to appear if the patient has mental disorders or a depressive state is observed.
However, senestopathies cause a person great discomfort, and sometimes they can increase the manifestations of a mental illness. Somatic diseases are rather complex physical conditions of the human body. It should be noted that only psychiatrists are involved in the treatment of this condition. Senestopathies are divided into several types:
- a feeling of cold, chills, and other thermal conditions,
- it seems that the whole body is in tension,
- ripple, and other gurgling fluids,
- burning pain,
In addition, the condition is caused by the impossibility of a person to focus on something, since all his thoughts are occupied with his own sensations. Basically, these incomprehensible conditions occur in the head or chest, less often in the stomach. But Senestopathy in the arms and legs is almost impossible to meet.
Somatic diseases - types
All pathological disorders of this group can conditionally be differentiated into the following classes:
- Conversion diseases - pathologies that occur after a neurotic conflict. Such somatic disorders are temporary. Vivid examples of these diseases are blindness, paralysis and deafness.
- Organic diseases - they are provoked by stress, fear and excessive feelings. More often a person experiences strong painful sensations, which may have a different area of localization.
- Pathological disorders, the occurrence of which is associated with the individual characteristics of the body. For example, a patient has a tendency to get injured. Bad habits (overeating, alcohol abuse or smoking) contribute to its occurrence.
When scientists started talking about psychosomatics
Even ancient Greek medicine spoke of the indivisibility of the psyche and the human body. Each organ was examined in relation to a certain emotion. For example, the liver is the reservoir of anger, the heart is fear, the stomach is sadness and sorrow.
The connection, as the ancients said, is mutual: a disease of an organ affects the emotional background of a person. And negative emotions lead to a disease of a particular organ.
In the XVII century, British physician Thomas Willis discovered that the sugar level in the body rises from experiencing grief, thereby opening up diabetes and giving impetus to the development of psychosomatics as a science.
Nietzsche can be considered the “spiritual father” of the formation of the psychosomatic approach. He talked a lot about the "mind of the body" and created a whole philosophy. One of his statements very vividly demonstrates the importance of the body: “One must proceed from the body and use it as a guiding thread. It is a much richer phenomenon that allows for clearer observation. Faith in the body is better founded than faith in the spirit. ”
Although the existence of psychosomatic connections was recognized several centuries ago, experimental psychology and medicine began psychoanalytic research only before the Second World War.
A great contribution to the development of psychosomatics was made by Freud, who first spoke about the extreme plasticity and vulnerability of our early childhood, the importance of early impressions that form the basic structure of personality. Subsequently, psychoanalysts, based on the work of Freud, confirmed the fact that unconscious factors strongly influence the formation and development of painful conditions.
To date, scientists have come to the general conclusion that in 40% of cases the cause of physical illnesses is not viruses and bacteria, as previously thought, but stress, mental trauma and internal conflicts.
It is very often possible to determine the presence of somatic diseases even without special diagnostic tests. For example, if these are stomach problems, there are abdominal pains, acid burping. Pathologies of the cardiovascular system will lead to unstable blood pressure, and infectious-viral diseases to an increase in body temperature.
The difficulty in diagnosing symptoms is represented by psychosomatic disorders. Very often, such diseases are accompanied by personality disorders, depression, anxiety. A patient whose illness has arisen as a result of self-hypnosis often has problems with sleep, sexual disorders, loss of appetite, apathy and aversion to others. The most common symptoms of psychosomatic disorders of the initial stage are the symptoms described below.
Frequent complaints in psychosomatic disorders
- Pain in the heart, palpitations, chest pains, chest pains.
- Psychosomatic disorders.
- Muscle pains, muscle pains, twists muscles, stretches muscles.
- Pain in the lower back, heaviness in the lower back or pain and heaviness in the back.
- Headaches of various types and intensities.
- Heaviness in the body, heaviness in the limbs.
- Feeling of heat or feeling of chills. Attacks or "Tides" of heat, chills.
- Sensation of a lump in the throat, difficulty swallowing, choking.
- Nausea, stomach pain, indigestion, abdominal pain.
- A feeling of weakness, a feeling of emptiness, fatigue.
- Dizziness, feeling of powerlessness.
- Feeling of numbness and tingling in different parts of the body.
Factors that worsen the work of internal organs
Speaking about what somatic diseases are, experts emphasize that such pathologies are often provoked by fear, anxiety, and depression. Deterioration in the functioning of internal organs can be caused by such reasons as quarrels, aggression, increased responsibility, reaction to stressful situations, lack of satisfaction with oneself, one's life and one’s surroundings.
Somatic disorders that arise due to such factors are difficult to diagnose and treat, as they can manifest themselves with various symptoms and have a vague clinical picture.
The causes of psychosomatic diseases
To determine the possible causes of health problems, there is a disease table. How to treat a psychosomatic disease and get rid of its characteristic symptoms, can also be found in such tables.
One of the first who dared to say that all human systems are closely interconnected is Louise Hay.
She suggested that the bad thoughts and emotions that a person has, contribute to the destruction of his body at a physical level and provoke the appearance of diseases. Her theory was also investigated by a famous psychologist and homeopath. Valery Sinelnikov.
There is a table of diseases according to Sinelnikov, using which you can determine the psychosomatics of your diseases and start working on yourself in order to eliminate the psychological factor that provokes it:
1) Headache. It appears as a consequence of the hypocrisy inherent in man. What is said out loud is very different from real thoughts and feelings. Therefore, a strong nervous tension appears and, as a result, pain in the head,
2) Runny nose. Often his appearance is a symbol of tears. At heart, a person is very depressed and worried, but doesn’t spill out his emotions,
3) Cystitis. After conducting research, Sinelnikov revealed that the psychosomatic nature of cystitis is hidden in anger and irritability to the opposite sex or sexual partner,
4) Cough. The appearance of any disease accompanied by severe coughing indicates a person’s hidden desire to declare himself, to draw attention to his person. It can also be a response to disagreement with others,
5) Diarrhea. The presence of intense fear and anxiety is reflected in the condition of the intestine. A person feels insecurity in this world and is not ready to fight his fear. That’s why a huge number of cases of diarrhea occur before an important and exciting event,
6) Constipation. The delay in the intestines of feces is due to the fact that a person does not want to let go of painful memories from the past, part with unnecessary people or lose a job that he does not like. Another psychosomatic cause of constipation is stinginess and greed for money,
7) Angina. A person who constantly suffers from diseases of the throat, including sore throat, holds emotions and anger within himself that he is not ready to throw out. The throat reacts to this with the appearance of an inflammatory process. A person does not express himself and his feelings, cannot stand up for himself and ask for something,
8) Herpes. Diseases of the oral cavity are directly related to a biased attitude towards people. In the subconscious, a person carries stinging words and expressions, accusations against other people that he does not express to them,
9) Uterine bleeding. This is a symbol of departing joy. It’s necessary to get rid of resentment and anger that has accumulated over the years in order to bring joy to life and get rid of problems,
10) Nausea, vomiting. The psychosomatic background of this phenomenon lies in the rejection and non-digestion of the world. Another reason may lie in subconscious fears, which is considered to be the main cause of toxicosis in pregnant women,
11) Hemorrhoids, anal fissures. Problems associated with the anus indicate that it is difficult for a person to get rid of the old and unnecessary in his life. Each time a person gets angry, feels the fear and pain of loss,
12) Thrushand other diseases of the genital organs. The genitals are a symbol of principles, so the problems associated with them - the fear of not being at the top, the insecurity of their attractiveness. Thrush can also occur when a person feels aggression towards a representative of the opposite sex, or a specific sexual partner,
13) Allergy, urticaria. Such diseases indicate a lack of self-control. Therefore, subconsciously, the body begins to bring out feelings and emotions that have been suppressed: irritation, resentment, anger,
14) Kidney. The illnesses of this organ are caused by a combination of such emotions: criticism and condemnation, anger and anger, resentment and hatred. A person thinks that he is pursued by failure and he does everything in life wrong, thereby dishonoring himself in the eyes of others. Also, the condition of the kidneys may reflect fear of the future and its further well-being,
15) Gall bladder. People with gall bladder problems tend to harbor anger, irritability and anger at other people.This provokes inflammatory processes in the organ, stagnation of bile and biliary dyskinesia, which soon leads to the appearance of stones.
This is not the whole list of diseases that may have a psychosomatic origin. There are innumerable numbers of them.
Acute somatic diseases
More often, such pathological disorders develop in childhood and young age, less often after 30 years. Representatives of the fair sex are more defeated by them. There is a higher likelihood that somatic diseases will begin to develop in those women whose close relatives suffer from similar ailments. The chances of the appearance of such a pathological disorder are drug and drug addiction. The list of somatic diseases in acute form:
- rheumatoid arthritis,
- damage to the kidneys and gastrointestinal tract,
- ulcerative colitis and so on.
The process of occurrence and development of psychosomatic disorders
It all starts with stress, the impact of which we experience quite often in everyday life. Any stress, in turn, leads to the release of action hormones. Each person may have a different concentration of these hormones, but one way or another, stress provokes muscle tension and prepares us to respond by action. In the wild, the reaction does not keep itself waiting: the animal either attacks or flees. For a person in the modern world, immediate action is often not possible: we can neither escape from the boss screaming at us, nor give him change, for example. Thus, there is no discharge of tension and muscle clamp remains.
Periodic stresses, affecting us every day, lead to an increase in internal discomfort. If we do not attach importance to this discomfort and do not try to work with it somehow, then it develops into painful sensations and subsequently leads to illness.
The emotions that we suppress force the body to somehow defend against them. And it successfully copes with this, forming a reinforced "carapace" of muscles. Such a “corset” fetters a person, lowering his mobility and stress resistance. Where constant chronic stress arises in the body, functional disorders of a psychosomatic nature are formed. Interestingly, the aforementioned “stress corset” is formed mainly around our main “axis” - the spine. And in this sense, the spine - our inner core - reflects our balance between internal sensations and external influences. It shows how the outside world affects us and how adequately we respond to this impact.
Judging by the fact that every first person in the modern world has certain problems with the spine, we can conclude about the general disharmony that prevails within us. Depending on which part of the spine bothers us, we can assume that it is we who are blocking from the outside.
Most often, if it bothers thoracic, that is, problems with the Anahata Chakra, love is blocked. If cervicothoracic department - problems with cooperation. Neck responsible for internal flexibility, and if it hurts, this may indicate a lack of this quality. The neck may hurt the one who refuses to face the truth. Because this truth is not under his control. This makes it difficult to turn back, because a person is afraid of what is happening behind him. At the same time, he pretends that he does not care, despite the fact that he is really very upset because of this.
If it hurts sacrum, this may indicate a denial of mutual assistance. A person is probably clinging too much to his independence, fearing to lose his freedom of movement if someone suddenly asks for his help.
If hard to give slopesperhaps the person resists external forces, which, in his opinion, force him to submit to conditions unacceptable to him.And if there are problems with deflections, something inside resists freedom in movements.
The topic is very interesting and extensive, within the framework of one article all of it can not be covered. We can say that the spine takes care of all our problems, preventing the organs from being damaged. And only if he can no longer cope, the blockage penetrates deeper, taking the form of various diseases.
Scientists studying psychosomatics have noticed that people with the same illness have similar traits and reactions to all events.
For example, cancer patients showed that often this diagnosis is given to people who are not able to express emotions, to those who forcibly restrain anger, while experiencing despair, a feeling of emptiness and loneliness.
Back pain unite those who have “victim syndrome”, who take on all their own and others' problems, trying to please others. Often such people neglect their own interests, which ultimately leads to internal conflict and dissatisfaction with themselves and their place in the world.
People with gastrointestinal problems too demanding of themselves and others. They cannot accept the imperfection of the world around them and themselves. It is difficult for them to “digest” failures, to accept some unpleasant situations for them. As a result, all of these emotions lead to a stomach ulcer or duodenal ulcer.
All people with diseases of cardio-vascular system combines a passion for “doing everything” with complete disregard for the emotional side of his life. So, the emotional basis of coronary heart disease can be a denial of joy in oneself, a lack of love.
Vascular problems peculiar to enslaved people. They are too delicate and shy.
High blood pressure most often comes from excessive anxiety and repressed anger. Etc.
The model of a person’s reaction to external stimuli, of course, is formed by his character, temperament, degree of awareness, and level of spirituality. However, along with other conditions that form a predisposition to a specific disease, there is one more thing - a lifestyle that people with a particular character tend to lead. For example, if a person chooses a profession with an increased level of responsibility, then the cause of the disease can be professional stresses, and not character traits. This is also important to consider.
One way or another, absolutely all people with psychosomatic diseases tend to block their feelings. They do not express them, do not put them into words, do not try to somehow live.
And now let us dwell in more detail on the destructive emotions emanating from the psychosomatic theory.
Among them: Fear, Anger, Guilt, Resentment, Shame.
All of them trigger the mechanism of "compression" in our body. After all, everyone remembers how the heart contracts with fear? Or how does it “break” in anger? Or how do you want to "curl up" when we are sad? This is the work of psychosomatics.
Avoid negative emotions we can not do. No matter how hard a person tries to suppress anger, fear, anxiety, they still appear. It may seem strange to someone, but it's good. Indeed, in fact, anger is a strong flow of energy that prompts a person to make an important decision. However, the drowned out anger transforms into an insult, which then destroys the body. Most often, a blow to the liver occurs (if anger is directed at itself) or problems arise with the cardiovascular system (if anger is on others).
Undercurrent grievances and unspoken discontent, for example, can cause persistent coughing, up to chronic bronchitis. If aggression is suppressed for a long time, then in conditions of sudden fear there are attacks of shortness of breath, which are symptoms of bronchial asthma. Evolutionary fear is called upon to maintain the instinct of self-preservation in us. However, the constant presence of fear destroys the internal organs - the intestines, kidneys, bladder.Systematically experienced fear also impedes the normal functioning of the endocrine system.
In the case of other emotions, everything is exactly the same: a person needs them, but if they are too numerous and frequent, they become dangerous. The situation is aggravated by the constant suppression of these emotions.
For greater clarity, I will give one striking example of the connection between the psyche and the body:
- A shy man went for an interview and saw a woman in the subway that he really liked. At this moment, he is embarrassed and his face is blushing.
- He goes to the office - his heart beats faster. Excitement may even cause bowel problems, and he runs to the toilet.
- Here he is in the office of the head. He is so worried that his heart "pops out of his chest."
- At the time of the conversation, fear is so strong that breathing is interrupted, palms are sweating.
- In anticipation of the result, the appetite disappears, a person may not eat for several days, waiting for an answer.
Having learned about the decision, even if it is positive, it is difficult for a person to relax. He may experience insomnia and have a headache from over-exertion.
All these reactions are not enough when manifested simultaneously. But on the whole they describe the work of psychosomatics well.
In addition to the main destructive emotions, the following factors can also be causes of psychosomatic symptoms:
1) Internal contradiction.
It happens that a person has two opposite desires at the same time: for example, go to yoga and watch TV. He doubts for some time, but somehow “wins” one of his desires. The example, of course, is very simplified, but in general, such a scheme works constantly in us:
- to marry Petya or Vasya?
- Go work as a lawyer or paint pictures?
- Meet with a friend at a party or visit grandmother in a hospital?
Do you understand? If we make a choice in favor of “one of”, some part may unconsciously unleash a “hidden war”, which psychosomatic symptoms may become a sign of.
How to make the "right" choice? How to make a decision without health consequences? It is important to consider the following:
A) Realize your true needs and feelings. For example: to watch TV is our true desire or do we do it because we are used to it? It is simpler and more understandable.
B) Build your own system of values, and not strive to comply with external attitudes (to get the profession that you want, not your mother, for example).
C) Be ready to let go. If you make a choice, you always get something, but you lose something. For example, if you decide to go to your grandmother, then let go of your thoughts about friends, and don’t think about the rest of the evening, how cool you might be at a party.
D) Be responsible for the decision, even if it is difficult to live with it. If you decide to paint, then do not oppress yourself with thoughts that lawyers earn more.
It can also cause psychosomatic diseases.
Using metaphors involving organs and parts of the body, you run the risk of turning them into reality sooner or later.
Here is just a small list of “ugly phrases” with which we poison ourselves: “sitting on my neck”, “they are already sitting in my liver”, “he does not let me breathe freely”, “this work is hemorrhoids”, “ this relationship is a real headache ”,“ I can’t stand it ”,“ I can’t digest them ”,“ my heart is out of place ”,“ tied hand and foot ”,“ I'm in shock ”,“ my back falls off ”and so Further. Our body physically reflects the state that we express with similar phrases.
In this case, the symptom of the disease “serves” a certain specific goal that we do not even realize. We do not pretend, do not lie to others, in this case we really have something to hurt. But the onset of the symptom occurs on an unconscious level.
For example, children often get sick if they do not get full communication with their parents and feel that in case of illness their parents will pay more attention to them.Such a pattern of behavior can be entrenched in a person, and already in his adult state he will try to manipulate people through his illness. For an adult who wants to untie this knot, a way out of this state is to determine the initial motivation.
4) Traumatic events.
The cause of a psychosomatic illness can also be negative events of the past, more often - a difficult childhood experience. This can be a one-time episode, or it can be a long-term effect, even if everything happened a very long time ago. Such an experience is, as it were, “preserved” in the body and awaits the possibility of processing. “It’s impossible to remember, and it’s impossible to forget,” - this phrase is just about such situations.
To solve them, you need, firstly, to identify this traumatic experience, to recall it and, secondly, to try to process it using your already mature resources. It so happens that without a therapist can not do. It depends on what events and what is the supply of mental energy in a person.
A particular bodily symptom can also occur as a result of identification with a person who has this symptom or disease. Basically, this happens with a strong attachment to this person.
Here, as in other cases, it is important to find the source of the problem and realize: why do you need this pain? What role does it play? And the second thing that forces should be directed to is self-awareness as a separate subject, independent of the object of its attachment.
Symptoms of the disease may occur with suggestion. This happens if the idea of one’s own illness is perceived automatically by a person, that is, he simply takes and believes in it without any reason. A classic example of suggestion can be considered a situation where anxious parents inspire the child that he might get sick / fall / break up, that he should be protected, that there are germs / dangers / evil people around, and so on.
In this case, understanding how and as a result of whose words a symptom was formed can help.
Sometimes we punish ourselves for something. This punishment happens for real guilt, but more often for fictitious. Self-punishment eases guilt, but brings health problems.
It can manifest itself in the form of specific diseases, or it can be the cause of various injuries: a person takes as a well-deserved punishment a brick falling on his head, or a hand cut with a knife, or falling out of the blue, or knocking his car ... In case of injuries, the person does not try to do anything at all to avoid. On the contrary, as if deliberately "climbing into trouble".
In cases of unconscious self-punishment, revealing exactly what you are punishing yourself can be of great help. Is there any real damage done by others, or is it purely psychological guilt (for desires, feelings, thoughts)? And in the case of real negative actions on your part, it will be much more effective to try to correct the situation, take responsibility for what you have done, and not bear the senseless burden of guilt.
8) Negative attitudes.
People who fail once may unconsciously form the belief within themselves that they will never succeed. If the failure was traumatic, then the belief can be global, such as “the world is dangerous”, “you need to keep your eyes open”, “you can’t trust people”, “nobody loves me” and so on. Attitudes such as curved mirrors distort everything that a person experiences. And the person himself in this case simply does not give the opportunity to manifest positive experiences. Each time faced with a similar situation, he will react to it the same way. A familiar pattern of behavior that leads away from a positive experience is always included. For the latter contradicts the habitual system of thinking.
A negative way of thinking, of course, leaves its mark on the body. The body will constantly ache, capturing in itself a thousandfold scrollable thoughts.Such people will always come across "inexperienced doctors", "inactive drugs", etc. - in short, all that is needed for the disease to go into the chronic stage.
How to recognize somatic diseases
You can usually meet the following symptoms of somatic diseases:
- Insomnia. Most of the inhabitants of the planet do not take this problem seriously, without paying special attention to it. Moreover, many try to cope with this condition on their own, neglecting the help of specialists. As a result: the purchase of sleeping pills, adhering to advertised brands or recommended by friends and its uncontrolled use. In fact, insomnia can be a somatic symptom, so before you take any medications, you need to see a doctor.
- Change in appetite which can lead to overeating or a complete refusal of food. These changes can trigger anorexia, obesity or bulimia. All these somatic symptoms lead to serious digestive problems.

Somatic disorders in women are often manifested in an abnormal perception of food: a complete rejection of it or, conversely, excessive overeating. The cause is nervous breakdowns, psycho-emotional disorders, stress, nervousness or depression. As a result of the appearance of such conditions in women with complete refusal of food, anorexia occurs, and with an increased feeling of hunger - obesity.

Characteristic for it are an increased interest in food, fatty and junk food, uncontrolled hunger, which subsequently leads to obesity.

Chronic somatic diseases
Pathological disorders in this stage pass from the acute form. Somatic diseases:
- essential arterial hypertension,
- diffuse glomerulonephritis,
- bleeding disorders and so on.
Continuing to talk about what somatic diseases are and how they manifest themselves, it is necessary to add that such pathologies have characteristic symptoms. These include the following:
- Disorders of appetite (lack of desire to eat or increased hunger). It can be caused by problems with the gastrointestinal tract, endocrine system, infections, as well as other diseases (anorexia nervosa, bulimia). Sometimes accompanied by nausea, vomiting. Aversion to food and refusal of it are as dangerous to health as systematic overeating.
- Sleep disorders (drowsiness, insomnia). It can be a symptom of hormonal problems, diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
- Disorders of sexual function (pain during sex, erectile dysfunction, lack of orgasm, decreased desire).
- Emotional disturbances (feeling of depression, weakness, anxiety, irritability, depression).
- Pain syndrome (discomfort in the heart, head, stomach, muscles).
It must be remembered that the above symptoms can be manifestations of many pathologies. Only a specialist is able to conduct a thorough diagnosis and establish which disease the patient suffers from. Therefore, it is not recommended to draw conclusions about your condition and take drugs on your own.
What to do
There is no specific “psychosomatic” treatment. The psychosomatic approach involves complex work at the level of the body, psyche, mind.
If we talk about negative attitudes / beliefs, they can be “reviewed”. The first step here is to bring such beliefs into the framework of the conscious. Indeed, more often than not, we don’t even know about our presence. If you take and write out all your negative attitudes, realize them, then there is an opportunity for another experience that is different from the previous one. This creates a more realistic, positive belief, which during regular practice becomes habitual.
The same can be said of all destructive emotions. You can start tracking them. Try to predict their appearance and change their behavior strategy. If, for example, you feel that you are in the grip of anxiety about the future, try to minimize it. The practice of contentment and acceptance will help here. The practice of being in the present moment and trusting the universe. Thus, anxiety can be transformed into hope, giving a calm state.
The practice of forgiveness helps to eliminate sadness, guilt or shame, regret about the past. It very effectively contributes to the acceptance of past experience and the recognition of all its lessons as necessary for development.
The fear of the unknown, including the fear of death, often paralyzes us, preventing us from acting where it is needed. A person is able to develop fearlessness due to the awareness of the path of his own life, and as he understands the Laws of Nature, his perception becomes calm and confident.
The physical load copes with emotional clamps: work with hands, running, a gym - all this helps to transfer unexpressed emotions to the physical level and get rid of them. But in this case, bodily practices that consider the body and mind as a whole are especially effective - the current psychophysiological process in which changes at any level affect the rest.
If the body is allowed to move naturally and easily, alternating relaxation with tension, then acting on it, it is possible to influence the psyche. Such practices include body-oriented therapy, the practice of hatha yoga, qigong and many other systems. Choose what responds to you more.
There is another good way to find contact with yourself, to restore the harmony of the soul and body. This is meditation. When we train a state of “neutrality” in ourselves, concentrating on one thing, not getting involved in the thought process and not emotionally, we can come up with the very suppressed desires, or suppressed negative emotions, or blocked feelings that destroy the body and soul. You can recall your negative childhood experience, psychological trauma, disappointment. Thus, meditation, as it were, brings to the level of the conscious that which you have deeply buried and forgotten. And as we already know, awareness is the main medicine in the healing of psychosomatic illnesses.
Another common symptom of a somatic disorder of a psychogenic nature is insomnia. It manifests itself due to strong internal experiences, stress, nervous disorders.With somatic sleep disorders, a person tries in every possible way to solve the problem: he tries to take a comfortable position, drinks sleeping pills, tries to fall asleep on his own. Very rarely, with insomnia, a person can still fall asleep himself, but wakes up at the slightest extraneous sound.
Treatment for Psychosomatic Disorder
Mental conditions accompanied by psychosomatic symptoms, it is required to begin to be treated with active neurometabolic drugs in combination with symptomatic agents that remove the pathological effect on one or another organ. At the first stages of treatment, active therapy using intravenous infusions is required. This is due to the fact that the first stages require rapid localization and relief of the most actively manifested symptoms, which can be achieved only by directly introducing the necessary recovery drugs into the blood. In the subsequent period, tablet forms of medications are prescribed, psychotherapeutic techniques and methods of restorative neurotherapy are connected. Cognitive psychotherapy and / or mild hypnotic techniques may sometimes be applicable.
Pathologies associated with somatic diseases
There are several types of somatic disorders, which include a huge number of components:
- Pathological (hereditary) disorders caused by individual characteristics of the human body. For example, hereditary diseases. It should be noted that a greater risk of these diseases occurs in smokers and drinkers.
- Constant stress and fears provoke organic diseases. In this case, the patient experiences pain that occurs in different parts of the body.
- As a conversion disease, it is worth noting blindness, deafness and paralysis of the limbs.
- Chronic manifestations of the disease occur at a young age and accompany the patient throughout his life.
Causes of somatic diseases
It is impossible to independently determine the source of such a pathological disorder. Only specialists can correctly cope with this task: in addition, consultation with a psychologist, neurologist and therapist will be required. The somatic system is complex, but more often it crashes under the influence of the following factors:
- severe nervousness
- ongoing conflicts
- feelings of discontent
- intense anger.
Physical practice is undoubtedly very important in the case of psychosomatic diseases. Along with psychological and mental work. But if the soul is empty and we do not see the point in our life, then until we ourselves fill our own vacuum, nothing can satisfy us. And vice versa, the ability to live happily and measuredly, controlling one’s thoughts and emotions, being in harmony with oneself, has the most beneficial effect on the general state of a person’s physical health.
Be that as it may, any illness or conflict of life is a catalyst for our growth through the awareness of our own connivance and unwillingness / unwillingness to take responsibility for everything that happens, on the one hand, and crowding out discontent with the body, on the other. We need an absolutely pragmatic view of our own imperfect nature: we do not have the automatic ability to adequately respond to the interaction of the psyche and body. This ability comes with practice, in which there is a place for healthy bodily organization and the study of the “mind of desires.”
Somatic diseases in childhood
Similar pathologies are found not only in adult patients. The development of somatic diseases is possible in childhood.What factors can they cause? As possible causes of the development of somatic pathologies in childhood, doctors usually identify pronounced manifestations of toxicosis in the mother during the bearing of a child, stressful situations during pregnancy, and impaired fetal formation.
It can be argued that the prerequisites for the appearance of diseases in children lie in the prenatal period. As a rule, in a child who suffers from a somatic pathology from an early age, there are violations of physical, emotional and intellectual development.
Diagnosis and treatment of psychosomatic disorder
Psychosomatic disorders tend to respond well to treatment and have a positive prognosis. The treatment of psychosomatic disorders is usually carried out under the patronage of a psychotherapist and a neurologist, possibly in collaboration with the specialist who treats a particular organ that a person complains about.
Somatogenic reaction - A term used to refer to mental disorders (asthenic syndrome, exogenous type of reaction, transient syndromes) arising from diseases of internal organs and other non-mental diseases.
Somato-autonomic disorder - A combination of autonomic and somatic disorders.
Somatoagnosia - Violation of the correct perception of body patterns. It is observed with focal lesions of the parietal lobe of the cerebral hemispheres, schizophrenia, depression, age-related changes in the brain (involutional processes), epilepsy, neurosis, poisoning.
Somatoform disorder - According to ICD-10, F45. The main characteristic of somatoform disorders is persistent complaints about physical disorders and persistent demands for medical research, despite repeated negative results and assurances from doctors that the symptoms are not physically determined. If there are any somatic disorders, they do not explain the nature and size of the symptoms or distress and their overwork on the part of the patient.
There are six types of somatoform disorders:
Causes of somatic diseases and methods for their treatment
Experts note that it is not possible to independently identify the causes of somatic diseases. Therefore, at the first signs of the disease, you must consult a doctor. In this case, a therapist, psychiatrist and neurologist will come to the rescue. The fact is that this type of disorder is difficult to diagnose and requires consultation with several specialists.
Treatment of somatic diseases requires an integrated approach, since before prescribing treatment, a specialist must find out the causes of their occurrence.
One of the most effective treatments is psychotherapy. It is with its help that you can find the focus of the disease. After that, special medications can be prescribed.
Psychosomatics: a table of diseases and how to treat
On the Internet you can find a lot of interpretations on the topic "psychosomatics - a table of diseases." According to them, for example, bronchial asthma, migraines, allergies, type 2 diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, obesity, radiculitis, intestinal colic, pancreatitis, psoriasis, psychological infertility, vegetovascular dystonia, vitiligo and many other diseases relate to psychosomatic. In this article, you will also find one of these tables. I deliberately did not prescribe treatment methods in it, so that the reader reacted to this information with a certain amount of criticism.
Yes, after reading this article, you may already have understood in which direction you should move in order to work out the psychosomatic causes of a particular disease.However, it will never be superfluous to play it safe and use the services of a doctor, psychologist or psychotherapist.
Abscess (ulcer). Disturbing thoughts of resentment, neglect, and revenge.
Adenoids. “Trivial” fears, fears from fuss, from the habit of worrying about everything.
Alcoholism. Feeling of worthlessness, worthlessness, hopelessness, emptiness, guilt, inadequacy to the world. Denial of self, low self-esteem. “Who needs this?” Feeling of futility, guilt, inconsistency.
One of the most intractable diseases that a person can rarely cope alone. After all, here the deep state of involvement in the world - happiness - is most often violated. And the formula of happiness is creativity + communication + love. If a person suffering from alcoholism is provided with the opportunity to creatively do some work, to let him feel his need for others, if he will love and be loved, then healing is possible.
Allergy. Denial of one's own power. Man is intolerant of other people. Feels a protest that cannot be expressed. Healing is possible if you identify and neutralize the foci of suppressed emotions.
Amenorrhea. Reluctance to be a woman. Self-hostility.

Excessive appetite. Fear. The need for protection. Condemnation of emotions.
Arthritis. Feeling that they don’t love you. Criticism, resentment. The inability to say no and blaming others for exploiting you. For such people, it is important to learn to say no if necessary. A person is always ready to attack, but suppresses this desire in himself. There is a significant emotional effect on the muscular expression of feelings, which is extremely controlled in this case. Desire for punishment, blaming yourself. The condition of the victim.
A person is too strict towards himself, does not allow himself to relax, does not know how to express his desires and needs. The “internal critic” is too well developed. Arthritis also occurs as a result of constant criticism of oneself and others. People with this disease are convinced that they can and should criticize others. They bear a peculiar curse, they strive to be right in everything, the best, the most perfect. But such a burden, full of pride and self-conceit, is unbearable, therefore the body does not withstand and becomes sick.
The solution here is to learn to forgive and let go of the situation. No need to try to win at all costs. Learn to be kind, add philosophical perception to your life.
Arthrosis. This is a disease of workaholics. Also the cause of this ailment can be called stubbornness of a person, his inertness and rigidity. And the reason for this approach to life is a lack of understanding of the meaning of life. Such a person does not see any other reason for his existence, except to constantly perform some work, to look for some activity for himself.
To get out of arthrosis disease in psychosomatics, the correct approach to the work itself and a clear understanding of why you need it are important. You can knit from morning till night, but you can’t earn arthrosis of the wrist joint. But this will happen if a person understands the meaning of his action, if his knitting is based on the desire to bring joy and happiness to his world for his environment. And if the basis is the desire to do something in the evening, when boredom falls, when you do not want to watch TV, then this action will lead to arthrosis.
Asthma. Inability to breathe for your own good. Feeling depressed. Containing sobs. Fear of life. Reluctance to be here. Asthma occurs when a family has suppressed feelings of love, suppressed crying, the child experiences fear of life and does not want to live anymore. Asthmatics express more negative emotions, are more often angry, offended, melt away anger and thirst for revenge.
Also, problems with the lungs are caused by the inability (or unwillingness) to live independently, as well as a lack of living space. Fear of frankness, sincerity, the need to accept the new that brings every day.
A trigger for the development of bronchial asthma can be a negative work stop, in which there is an “overlap of oxygen” for the employee, and the arrival of relatives, because of which “not to breathe” in the apartment. Gaining confidence in people is an important psychological component that promotes recovery.

An allergic chronic runny nose indicates a lack of emotional control. A person with chronic sinusitis is prone to accumulate negative emotions in himself.

Mental disorders in somatic diseases
Doctors have long established the fact that a person’s physical condition has a direct effect on his emotional state. For example, in the event of serious pathologies that require immediate treatment in a hospital, people have strong feelings. Some heart diseases are accompanied by a feeling of weakness, anxiety, deterioration of memory and attention, aggression. With cancerous tumors, patients quickly get tired, they have a depressed mood. Pathologies of the kidneys are accompanied by muscle pain, slow movement and reactions. Elevated temperature in severe infections can cause delusional conditions, visual and auditory hallucinations.
It is extremely important for a specialist to carefully monitor patients with severe somatic diseases. Indeed, the deterioration of well-being can often lead to emotional disorders.
The most obvious signs of somatic disorders are pain. Patients with this diagnosis may complain of stomach pain, stitching in the heart, headache, weakness in the legs, or aching joints. As a rule, just the organ that, according to the patient, is the weakest in the body suffers. Such manifestations often haunt suspicious and especially disturbing people.
Patient Response to Disease
The behavior of a person suffering from somatic pathology is largely determined by his personal characteristics. The following conditions also affect his mental state:
- A variety of the disease, the severity of symptoms, especially the course of the pathology.
- Awareness of the patient about his diagnosis.
- Features of therapy, the relationship of doctors.
- Climate in the family.
- The reactions of relatives, colleagues, friends to the patient's condition.
Somatic diseases in humans are common causes of emotional disturbances. Moreover, some patients become anxious, irritable, depressed, overly suspicious, conflict with doctors who, in their opinion, do not give them due attention. Other patients underestimate their disease, neglect examination and therapy. Often relatives of people with somatic pathologies convince them to abandon traditional medicine and seek help from healers, folk healers. This is extremely dangerous, since such people are not specialists. Often they make the wrong diagnoses and prescribe medications to patients that worsen their condition.
Sexual Function Disorders
Acute somatic ailments in men are often manifested by a lack of libido, a weak erection, and decreased sexual desire. In women, such a disease is manifested by a lack of orgasm, the appearance of pain during intercourse and, as a result, a complete rejection of sex. Psychogenic factors lead to such somatic pathologies: prolonged abstinence, fear, fear of sex, a sense of disgust for a partner, low or high self-esteem.
In addition to the diseases listed above, specialists share somatic diseases in another 3 classes:
- Conversion diseases are an expression of neurotic conflict. Vivid examples of neuropathy: hysterical paralysis, temporary blindness or deafness.
- Organic somatic diseases - the cause is a physical reaction to experience, stress, fear. Patients complain of pain in different parts of the body that they consider the most vulnerable.
- Pathologies associated with individual personality traits. For example, a person’s tendency to receive injuries or emotional cheating due to bad habits (alcoholism, smoking, overeating).
Diagnosis of pathologies
In order to identify the cause of the appearance of somatic symptoms, the doctor will need to conduct a series of tests, including:
- a complete history of the patient, including a survey of relatives and the collection of previous medical records,
- visual inspection of the victim, palpation of problem areas,
- analysis of feces, blood from a finger or vein,
- sputum collection,
- soft tissue biopsy
- the use of functional diagnostic methods - MRI, CT, X-ray,
- surgical intervention.
Somatic diseases - symptoms
For such pathological disorders, a specific clinical picture is characteristic. Even the most severe somatic diseases can be accompanied by the following symptoms:
- Impaired appetite - patients have extremes (some completely refuse to eat, while others overeat). The result is either anorexia or obesity. Another disorder that can occur on a nervous basis is bulimia. Patients show an increased interest in fatty foods, which can lead to obesity. However, in order not to accidentally gain extra pounds, those who suffer from bulimia drink laxatives, emetics and diuretics. Because of this, somatic diseases develop with complications in the digestive tract.
- Insomnia - Most patients try to cope with this problem on their own, without resorting to the help of a doctor. They drink sleeping pills uncontrollably and try to relax in any other available way. However, all this does not bring the desired result: the situation is only getting worse.
- Pain - more often develop in very suspicious and overly disturbing people. Discomfort can be observed in any organ (usually in the weakest point of the body).
- Sexual disorders - they are provoked by fears, prolonged abstinence, low self-esteem, squeamishness in relation to the partner. In men, such somatic acute diseases occur with a weak erection and a decrease in sexual desire. In women, sexual disorders are manifested by a lack of orgasm and pain during intercourse.
In childhood, somatic disorders are accompanied by the following symptoms:
- emotional instability
- hypersensitivity to infections,
- allergic predisposition
- vegetative dystonia,
- stuttering, tics and other psychomotor disorders,
- weather dependence,
- a decrease in the body's defenses.
Correlation of the type of inverse proportionality between mental and somatic manifestations in the clinical picture of a number of psychosomatic, especially borderline, disorders. Many modern researchers come to the conclusion that psychosomatic balancing is the Law that defines the relationship between somatic and mental pathology. With endogenous depressions, for example, the intensity of vegetosomatic manifestations is greater than the manifestation of depression itself.
Each person has a risk of getting somatic disorders of an acute form, another thing is that this can always be avoided if a number of conditions are observed:
- try to lead a healthy lifestyle - eat right, exercise, do not drink or smoke,
- regularly undergo a routine examination by doctors of different orientations,
- if possible, avoid stressful situations, emotional stress.
Treatment of somatic diseases
Before prescribing therapy, the doctor should:
- Identify the root cause of the disorder.
- Determine if this disease is hereditary.
- Examine test results.
Somatic diseases list are long. Their treatment should be comprehensive. Psychotherapy of somatic diseases allows you to achieve a faster result. It acts specifically on the mechanism of development of the disease. Tranquilizers and antidepressants may also be prescribed. Additionally, traditional medicine is used. For example, with hypertension, a calendula decoction can be prescribed.
Therapy and prevention of pathologies
Treatment of somatic diseases is carried out after determining the exact diagnosis. It includes drugs that relieve symptoms of pathology and eliminate the cause of malfunctions in organs and systems. Doctors often prescribe supplements and vitamin complexes to patients. Of great importance is physiotherapy, physiotherapy, proper nutrition. With serious pathologies, the patient is observed in a hospital. The necessary studies are carried out there, intensive treatment methods are applied.
In some cases (especially in situations where the disease is accompanied by emotional disturbances), patients require the help of a psychotherapist. Individual or group exercises, sedatives help stabilize a person’s mental state.
In the modern world there are many prerequisites for the development of various diseases. In order to prevent their occurrence, it is important to lead a healthy lifestyle.
In essence, these are psychogenic disorders, which, along with neurosises and psychopathies, constitute the largest share among diseases traditionally attributed to small or borderline (community-acquired) psychiatry and psychotherapy. Common to all psychosomatoses is an acute or gradual onset, often with neurotic depression. The clinical picture of the disease is represented by a variety of somatic complaints and symptoms, behind which there are distinct affective disorders, often qualifying as senestopathies. Mental manifestations in psychosomatosis in the acute period are often limited to anxiety, panic reactions, depression, IBS. The chronic course of the disease leads to the appearance of distinct neurosis-like and most often psychopathic disorders. For the diagnosis of psychosomatosis, psychosomatic disorder, somatoform disorder - it is necessary to undergo a complete pathopsychic examination by a psychotherapist. It is necessary to identify somatic disorder and the psychogenic factors that caused it. For example, a mentally significant external stimulus that has a temporary connection with the occurrence of complaints or an exacerbation of somatic disease.The somatic condition of the patient should be marked by a pronounced organic disturbance. For example, rheumatoid arthritis or heart disease. Or identifiable pathophysiological process, for example, migraine.
A good psychotherapist is able to discern and correctly identify the true causes of the appearance of various kinds of psychosomatics and somatic diseases in a patient.
The doctor should not deal with the removal of symptoms only, he should deal with the treatment directly of the true reason for which a variety of bodily symptoms appear. Our doctors treat a psychosomatic disorder not symptomatically, but find the true reason why these symptoms manifest and destroy it.
