Somatic Symptom Disorder

MA In Clinical Psychology
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
Somatic symptom disorder is when you put so much focus on symptoms such as pain or fatigue that you have trouble functioning or experience severe emotional distress. You will be visiting the doctor a lot, completely unnecessarily and will waste a lot of money when you have no major health concerns. However, there are treatments, which can help you cope with this problem. Read further to find out what they are:

Symptoms
1. Worrying excessively about an illness, which has not yet occurred
2. Frequent health care visits
3. Fear of physical activity damaging your body
4. Fearing that the evaluation of doctors is not adequate

There are many more symptoms, which may indicate that you are suffering from somatic symptom disorder. However, the most important way of telling whether someone is suffering from somatic symptom disorder or not is to see whether the patient is overly worried about a physical problem, which has not yet occurred. One of the first steps in making sure that this does not happen is finding out what causes the problem and preventing it. Here are the causes of somatic symptom disorder.

Causes
As with other psychological disorders, the exact cause of somatic symptom disorder is not yet known. However, there are a number of factors which may increase the risk of it, such as:
1. Genetic and biological factors
These as well as an increased sensitivity to pain are some of the factors, which you have no control over.
2. Environment you grew up in
Just like the genes you have, the environment you grew up in and your family influence will have a major impact on whether you develop the condition as well.
3. Problems processing emotions
When people have problems processing emotions, their physical symptoms seem like a bigger problem than they actually are.

Treatment
Luckily, there are treatments for this disorder as well, which include.
1. Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is the most common treatment used to help people with somatic symptom disorder.
2. Medications
Since depression and pain often occur when a person is suffering from somatic symptom disorder, antidepressants can be given as well.

Contraception - Myths and Misconceptions

Today 26th september is the world contraceptive day. Sex is a basic human right. But to have sex safely and without fear of unwanted pregnancy should be the priority. Many women across the world die everyday as a result of unwanted pregnancy, mostly due to unsafe abortion.

So, couples can avoid pregnancy and enjoy sex life fully, only if they can follow safe and effective contraceptive advice. Let me clarify some popular myths and misconceptions abut contraception.

1. one contraception is useful for all

While the ideal contraceptive is necessary but it does not exist. So, what may seem suitable for a couple may not be useful for another couple. We need to assess various points like number of children they have, wish to have further children and plan to have children, general health of wife and husband (and any diseases they suffer from), frequency of intercourse, chance of infection, age of the partners etc.

2. Regarding barrier methods
Most popular barrier method is male condom. But the myths are that" condoms reduce sexual pleasure" and" condoms get easily damaged leading to failure.

Condoms are specially useful for those who are at risk of infections, who do not have very frequent intercourse and who are not suitable for other methods. Condoms do not decrease sexual pleasure, some of the condoms have medicated products which can increase the duration of intercourse and also act as lubricant to facilitate intimacy.

But men should know how to use it properly. It should be worn in erect penis expelling all the air and projecting the tip beyond the tip of penis. While withdrawing penis after intercourse, the condom should be held at the base of the penis. Actually failure/ rupture of condoms occur because of mishandling of condom or not knowing proper use of it. So, before use, please make sure that you know its correct use.

Definitely some men can feel latex allergy and they have to use non-latex condom, which are widely available.

There are barrier methods for females also- like female condom, diaphragm and cervical cap etc. But they are not very ease to use and are not so popular.

3. Oral contraceptive pills (ocp)

Myths-" ocp causes increase in weight" ocp causes cancers.

Facts- ocp seldom causes gain in weight. The gain in weight is coincidental, that means you have some other reason of gaining weight- like not having exercise, ignoring diet control and some other diseases.

Ocp rather reduces risk of cancer- especially ovarian cancer (which is very difficult to diagnose and very lethal), cancer of colon, cancer of endometrium (inner lining of uterus). Of course, there is little risk of breast cancer, but the risk is not very high, it can be easily detected by examination by doctor. So, if you take ocp, get rid of all the fears. Just try to have self- breast examination every month.

4. Intrauterine contraceptive devices (iucd)-

Most popular is copper t. Medicated iucds are also available, that contains hormonal drugs.

Copper t does not increase risk of infection, a common misconception lies among woman.

5. Emergency contraceptive pills (i pill etc).

Often couple uses these pills regularly after intercourse. Remember these pills contain very high content of hormonal drugs, which can lead to serious side effects like hormonal imbalance, irregularities in periods (and thus can prevent you from getting pregnant in future, even when you want pregnancy), ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside tubes that are life-threatening) etc. So, use regular contraception if you want to prevent pregnancy. I pill is not meant to be taken for every time of sex.

6. Ligation-

Ligation of male (vasectomy) and female (tubectomy) is done as permanent contraception for couples having more than 2 children. Ligation in male does not disturb sexual activity. It is easier than female ligation. Again, female ligation is also a very safe technique.

So, please remove all misconceptions and myths about contraception. Have safe sex, enjoy life.

Common causes of nipple itch include eczema, bacterial infection, chemical irritants, such as soap and laundry detergent, dry skin, and medication side effects. Contact dermatitis can also result in nipple itch. Depending on the cause, an itching feeling may occur in one or both nipples, and it may be accompanied by redness, pain, swelling, or discharge from the affected nipples.

If it is hemorrhagic cyst, it is likely to resolve with or without medications. Wait for a couple of months and rescan again. Generally it is not the cause of recurrent abortions like in your case. Did you do tests like thrombophilia profile? recurrent abortions require a detailed workup and at times the cause may still be difficult to know. Most of the times there is no problem with conception and only fetal growth is the issue.

My marriage finished before 1 year. I was pregnant and its aborted concerned doctor tell me that I have a small chest in ovary.

Sex everyday is more. You should reduce frequency. In last trimester, that is, in last 3 mnths you should avoid sex.

All smokers do not have cancer. Similarly all fat ladies may not have problem. So, she must reduce weight. At the same time, we need to check both husband and wife to determine the cause of not having baby and then we can plan treatment

Commercial sex work is the most prevalent mode of hiv transmission in india. We can't decide your hiv infected status unless we knew the hiv status of your partner. Hiv is present in almost all secretions of the body. But blood, semen, vaginal secretions, pleural and peritoneal fluids are more associated with the transmission because of the high viral load. Test for 4th generation elisa after 4 days of intercourse. If the test is uncertain then you need to go for hiv viral load which is costly. Even the test is negative you need to be tested for hiv antibodies at 28th day and 3rd, 6th and 12 months for final confirmation. Contact if need further assistance.

To know the patancy of tubes hsg test is required, there are no symptoms to check for that. Since you are not able to conceive for 2 yrs, so go for it. Also get amh tsh fsh lh prolactin tests done, all these are required to check your fertility. Also get your husbands semen analysis done.

Hi. Pain during periods is quite common and one should not worry too much. We should continue moderate exercise during periods, try to eat a healthy diet including green vegetables. You can take a tablet of blong everyday. Also you can take meftal spas tablet 1-2 per day if pain is unbearable. It is safe to take it in moderate doses. Hot bottle fomentation is also a good idea.
