Causes And Effects of Alien Hand Syndrome

D.P.M(psychiatry) [Diploma in Psychological medicine] , MBBS
Sexologist, Jalna
Causes And Effects of Alien Hand Syndrome

Alien Hand Syndrome or AHS is a neurological disorder that causes the patient's hand to move involuntarily. The individual has no control over the movement of the hand and sometimes, he or she may not even be aware of the action! The patients often report feeling like their hand does not belong to them anymore. The disease has no cure but the symptoms can be treated and reduced. Usually the hand is kept occupied constantly by holding a light object. 

Causes of Alien Hand Syndrome: 
Though the exact causing factor of AHS is unknown, there are a number of instances which have been shown to influence the development of the condition. The chief factors are: 

  1. Brain injury: Injury caused to the brain by blunt force trauma or faulty surgery can lead to Alien Hand Syndrome. This is particularly seen if the frontal lobe (the brain center of voluntary movement) or the corpus callosum (the bundle of nerve fibers connecting the left and right hemispheres of the brain) is affected. These are the areas that regulate motor functioning and the neural pathways to execute the actions. 
  2. Brain tumor: A tumor (a mass of abnormal cells) pressing on the motor centers of the brain can cause involuntary movements of the left hand in a right handed person. This is because the right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body and vice versa. Tumors blocking the neural pathways usually cause errant movements of the predominant hand. 
  3. Neurodegenerative conditions: Diseases like Alzheimer's disease and Creutzfeld & Jakob Disease are characterized by memory loss, rapid changes in personality and growing defects in the central nervous system. AHS could be a complication of such disorders. Effects of Alien Hand Syndrome This is an extremely rare condition. There have been less than 80 known cases around the world since 1908. 

The disorder is often unreported because it is mistaken for a psychiatric problem due to its unusual symptoms and effects. 

  1. The patient may not even be aware of what his 'alien hand' is doing. The hand may even begin functioning of its own accord when the patient is asleep. 
  2. AHS can result in feelings of guilt and shame because of the embarrassing actions of the hand that the patient has absolutely no control over. The hand is often said to be governed by primal animalistic urges of hitting others, tearing clothes off etc. 
  3. The condition often leads to social anxiety, depression and paranoia

It began 8 years earlier when I started playing increasing game and detecting other people's lies. Then I became a bit paranoid regarding other people's motive. There was one fellow in my office who was very slow but extremely accurate I started following him as though I was fast I was very inaccurate since the beginning I started becoming like him very slow, accuracy improved but not that much as is the normal. After 1 year I started thinking that I smell a lot. This has the effect that I constantly started feeling that everyone is noticing that because of which I became depressed. Than I left the job for studies while studying I started for the first time to stay up late. During that time I started becoming psycho I thought that I have supernatural powers I can change everything. Then again I started working fast after which I thought that everyone including. My family is planning against me. My whole life was a mystery. Due to which I went to a psychiatrist in the starting he gave me multivitamins I slept a lot that feeling of supernatural powers and planning and plotting went away. But I was depressed that I am somewhat less intelligent and make more mistakes and forget things due to which I had a lack of confidence. Here I am currently have worked for 1 and a half year in which I have changed 7 jobs with the feeling that I make more mistakes and forget things these things have been said by other colleagues and bosses also. But may be that can be due to not paying much attention as I am depressed. I have been given multi vitamins, nootropics, antidepressants but still I am not able to work. I also have a feeling that when I slow down a lot I become good at decision making and my accuracy improves and I do not forget anything but if I slow down that much everyone will come to know that I am not mentally well and speed is essential in todays work. I am damn sure about the last line. But I do not see a way out. Please help! It began 8 years earlier when I started playing iq increasing game and detecting other people's lies.

8 years ago you were a teenager and this late adolescence period is the last time you will get to deal with unresolved issues. Apparently you have not dealt with them properly and it is quite certain that there are childhood issues that need to get some attention. So visit a counselor along with your parents and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor do that too. I am concerned that you may be heading for serious trouble if you do not combine therapy with medication. These paranoid thoughts are only increasing and needs immediate attention. Everybody will do better if they slow down but I don't know if your slow down is excessive. That could also be of concern, especially if it an anger slow down, which I suspect it is.
