Imaginary patients: What is vascular dystonia and methods of treatment
Autonomic dysfunction or vegetative-vascular dystonia doctors call “imaginary” disease. They sometimes shutkuyut patients, “Who knows with you, but it seems you do not pretend patient.” And all because of this diagnosis lies behind many “masks” hidden symptoms that at first glance appear to be harmless and temporary.
Autonomic dysfunction – a disease associated with disorders in the autonomic nervous system. Because it is so difficult to find the root of the problem – how to treat that does not have a specific location in the body?
The autonomic nervous system permeates the entire body. Anxiety symptoms appear when the system is reduced autonomic tone, resulting in the failure of all its basic functions. But the title also refers malaise “vascular”. This is because the autonomic nervous system works closely with vascular. They both permeate the entire body and are closely intertwined. In addition, most of the functions carries autonomic system through the vasculature. For example, when hot, vessels dilate – a person sweats. If the autonomic system gave the signal to get rid of the heat, and the vessel failed to respond adequately, there are problems with these systems. Dystoniy many options. It is a disease covered by several “masks” – states, which are the manifestations of the disease.
Symptoms of the disease
Various vague manifestation of symptoms can confuse even the experienced doctor. But still there are signs that occur most often:
The body adapts to the bad weather conditions;
Increased or decreased sweating (general and local);
Unstable body temperature;
Pain in the heart (tingling, derivatives pain, discomfort in the heart, feeling chest compression, frequent feeling of lack of air);
Unstable low or high blood pressure;
“Ants” on the body, tingling, numbness in various parts of the body;
Headache, dizziness, constant fatigue;
Very good or, conversely, poor appetite.
“The sad sigh”
In vascular dystonia (VVD) almost always occur respiratory disorders. There is always shallow breathing during exercise and excitement, sensation of incomplete inspiration, desire and need periodically to breathe air (so-called “sad sigh”), often a person may experience shortness of breath, such as bronchial asthma. Among other unpleasant feelings – a sense of “who” or compress the throat, choking intolerance, the need to constantly open the window, out of the room. Thus there is a giddiness, palpitations, anxiety, fear suffocate and die. All these phenomena occur most during emotional stress.
Fatigue that does not pass
Chronic fatigue syndrome disease doctors call civilization. The main symptoms are familiar to all – fatigue, memory loss, decreased attention, constant irritability, low mood, depression. The term appeared in 1984 thanks to a group of American researchers and it reflects the main symptoms.
Fatigue observed syndrome, wherein the constantly growing. Breakdown accompanied by an increase in body temperature to 37.3 ° C, headache, swollen lymph nodes. The main disease is considered to two criteria: fatigue progresses and does not expire after the holidays, there are no other causes of diseases that cause fatigue, transient.
It is believed that the trigger for chronic fatigue syndrome serves as chronic stress, weakened immunity, viral infections, especially herpes.
Dependence on weather
Meteozalezhnist long caused confusion and fear of man to obscure natural phenomena. People who feel weather changes, called “living barometers”, “weather prophets.” Particularly acute sudden weather changes and atmospheric pressure jumps feel people diagnosed with vascular dystonia. Hypertensive patients complain of poor health in clear weather when increased pressure and oxygen levels in the air and hypotensive feel worse in cloudy weather, the rain. Changes in solar activity and magnetic storms cause discomfort and those in the other. As a defensive reaction to the negative effect of the surrounding environment observed increase in cholesterol and adrenaline. This can not lead to fatigue. These symptoms may be added as headache, giddiness, joint pain, heart rhythm disturbances.
The expression “cold hands – warm heart” does not mean that man has a great temperament. Such trouble – one of the signs of vegetative-vascular dystonia. In ancient disease called “pale feebleness” and chose it mainly emotional girls to 25 years. Neduzi gave the name of Raynaud’s syndrome – named for the French doctor who described it. Affliction begins with a sudden brief attacks of numbness in the fingers arising under cold, such as washing or washing in cold water, at least – as a result of strong
