Methods: We estimated (1) the association between depressive symptoms and physical diseases (N = 14,348), (2) the association between gambling and physical diseases (N = 11,385), and (3) the association of sensory responsiveness with somatic symptoms and illness anxiety (N = 205). Logistic regression analyses were conducted to estimate the associations in studies (1) and (2). To estimate the associations in study (3) we conducted a linear multiple regression model. We controlled for potential confounders in all three studies ...

Introduction: COPD patients present with a mixture of symptoms, some of which may not always be attributable to physical pathology. The degree of the psychological and behavioural component of illness may at times be out of proportion with objective physical pathology. Maladaptive perceptions associated with abnormal illness behaviour (AIB) may have negative consequences for patients health outcomes.. Objectives: The study aimed to 1) investigate the prevalence and type of AIB present in COPD patients entering pulmonary rehabilitation and 2) evaluate the associations between AIB, quality of life, mental health and level of disability in COPD patients.. Method: A cross-sectional study design was employed. Sixty-nine COPD participants entering a pulmonary rehabilitation program completed the Illness Behaviour Questionnaire (IBQ), Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Short Form 36 (SF-36) and Chronic Respiratory Questionnaire (CRQ).. Results: Correlations indicated that AIB was ...

Placebo effects are often attributed to clinical interactions and contextual factors that affect expectations of the patient about the treatment and result in symptom changes. The prevailing conceptualization consists of an undifferentiated placebo response that needs to be minimized in controlled investigations and maximized in clinical practice. However, treatment outcome is the cumulative result of the interaction of several classes of variables with a selected treatment: living conditions (housing, nutrition, work environment, social support), patient characteristics (age, sex, genetics, general health conditions, personality, well-being), illness features and previous therapeutic experience, self-management, and treatment setting (physicians attitude and attention, illness behavior ...

Pretty rough topic to fully understand, in no way will I, can I, nor do I have the authority to "bash" you over your behavior. Cooter I just want you to dwell on something, just for a moment if you will and those of you in similar situations. This will likely be long winded so you may want to ignore my reply in its entirety.. I have a couple of physical diseases that require a variety of medications with a narcotic being one of them. In the beginning, I was one of those who could take an Aleve, Aspirin, etc. I openly admitted to a physician about drinking a few beers with the "boys." My statement was never fully investigated or was I given the chance to explain. Shazam, into my medical records it appeared. This in turn evolved into alcohol abuse, which later, through much psychological testing, psychiatric questioning, was reduced into an effective rationally functioning alcoholic in remission. A few beers with the boys, was in all actuality, MAYBE a 12 pack in the 4 or 5 times I played golf a ...

OBJECTIVES: Biopsychosocial models suggest altered attention to pain plays a role in the aetiology of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). We investigated whether attention to pain words differed in IBS participants relative to healthy controls, and whether attentional indices predicted self-reported health and illness behaviour. DESIGN: A between-subjects design was used to enable investigation of differences between an IBS participant group and a healthy participant group. METHODS: Twenty IBS participants and 33 healthy controls completed a modified version of a task commonly used to investigate attentional processes, the exogenous cueing task. Attentional bias, engagement, and disengagement indices were calculated from reaction time data to assess attention to pain and social threat words. Questionnaires were used to investigate self-reported health and illness behaviour. RESULTS: Relative to controls, IBS participants were more biased towards pain than neutral words, showing faster engagement with pain
News came in that a bomb had gone off at Mahim station, just around the corner from the HT office. I thought it was hoax, but realised the gory truth later on, recounts Megha Sood.
Background: Associations between coping with and control over psychotic symptoms were examined using the Maastricht Assessment of Coping Strategies-24, testing the hypothesis that the cognitive domain of executive functioning predicted quality and quantity of coping. Methods: MACS-24 was administered to 32 individuals with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. For each of 24 symptoms, experience of distress, type of coping and the resulting degree of perceived control were assessed. Coping types were reduced to two contrasting coping categories: symptomatic coping (SC) and non-symptomatic coping (NSC; combining active problem solving, passive illness behaviour, active problem avoiding, and passive problem avoiding). Cognitive functioning was assessed using the GIT (Groninger Intelligence Test), the Zoo map (BADS: Behavioural Assessment of Dysexecutive function), Stroop-test and Trail making. Results: Cognitive function was not associated with frequency of coping, nor did cognitive function ...

You cannot be optimally healthy if you avoid addressing the emotional component of your health and longevity, as your emotional state plays a role in nearly every physical disease - from heart disease and depression, to arthritis and cancer. Effective coping mechanisms are a major longevity-promoting factor in part because stress has a direct impact on inflammation, which in turn underlies many of the chronic diseases that kill people prematurely every day. Energy psychology tools such as meditation, prayer, social support and exercise are all viable options that can help you maintain emotional and mental equilibrium.. 4.

For deaths, the underlying cause of death is used to identify mental disorders and physical diseases, but multiple cause of death diagnoses are used to capture drug overdoses. This can lead to more than one substance diagnosis per death, thus the sum of the specific substance categories may be greater than the total number of overdose deaths. For hospital discharges and ED visits, AOD consequences can be displayed in two ways. "Principal diagnosis" includes only cases where the AOD diagnosis was the main or most serious condition. "Any mention of AOD" includes all cases with a diagnosed alcohol or drug condition, whether diagnosed as principal or secondary. For "Any mention" queries, more than one substance-related diagnosis may be found. Thus the sum of the specific substance categories may be greater than the total number of cases. In addition, numbers are based on treatment episodes, not individuals. Therefore an individual may be counted more than once in the same year. For more information ...
Dr Atis Muehlenbachs- who worked on the case - told BBC News that it had been the most unusual case and you can understand why..

After molecular testing it identified high levels of tapeworm DNA in the tumours. *Shudders*.. ...
I have a camera in my opengl program that I recently finished. However, Ive noticed that whenever I rotate and then move again, the x, y, and z angles change. For example, when I press the w key, I move forward along the z axis. If I then rotate the camera 90 degrees, when I push the W key, I will actually be moving right, seemingly along the x axis. It makes sense why this happens, Im just wondering why its happening. Heres the rotation function: private void camera() {

Considerable familiarity with the symptoms of whiplash injury and a knowledge of the risk factors contributing to delayed recovery are requirements for the professionals who write expert reports. In addition, good skills in evaluating the factors influencing pain and illness behavior are necessary, as is the assessment of cognitive performance. Knowing these factors allows an integrative assessment of whiplash patients and is preferebly performed by psychiatrists or physicians trained in psychosomatic medicine. Voraussetzung für die neuropsychiatrische Begutachtung nach Beschleunigungsverletzung der HWS sind die genaue Kenntnis der Symptome und Risikofaktoren eines verzögerten Heilverlaufs sowie die Fähigkeit zur Evaluation des Schmerzerlebens und des Krankheitsverhaltens bzw. der kognitiven Leistungen. Diese Kenntnisse ermöglichen eine integrative Beurteilung, welche vorzugsweise von Psychiatern oder psychosomatisch geschulten Ärzten übernommen werden soll.
Hypochondriasis remains controversial, despite its 2000-year history. Although it is considered a mental disorder, hypochondriasis is often regarded as a defense mechanism, peculiar cognitive/ perceptual style, means of nonverbal communication, response to stress, abnormal illness behavior, personality trait, distinct personality disturbance, and part of other mental disorders.

If anything can change your perception of mental illness, its this image.. The point?

Here is a link from a New York Times story today with first person accounts of how people are still waiting for help and private entities and individuals are stepping in to provide rescue efforts. I wish more private entities both Japanese and foreign would take the same kind of initiative. I received an email from a Japanese blogger today with loved ones in Tokyo and Eastern Japan who sounded very very worried and said that she and her husband felt doubts about what was being told them "officially". I think its perfectly natural after so much time passing to start having doubts about what you are being told. We have to ultimately - in such emergencies - think for ourselves, do for ourselves, and do for each other to the extent possible ...
We perpetrate a terrible disservice by using the exact same word to describe how we feel when our favorite team gets knocked out of the playoffs or when our cell phone breaks, and a chemical, clinical illness that can be debilitating and incapacitating. Clinical depression is not about feeling blue, or down in the dumps or terribly sad. It is a serious illness that can be the result of a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors.. Over 800 years ago, Rabbeinu Yonah wrote: "Although there is a beneficial aspect to sadness in that it prevents people from becoming overly joyous over the pleasures of this world, nevertheless, one should not pursue the state of sadness, since it is a physical disease. When a person is despondent, he is not able to serve his Creator properly." The Talmud (Shabbos 30b) tells us about an evil spirit that is so dangerous it can be lethal and therefore, one can extinguish a candle on Shabbos to calm it. The Rambam (commentary on the ...

The Psychobiology research group is concerned with the pathways through which sociodemographic and psychosocial factors influence physical disease processes. A major aim of the group is to understand how factors such as socioeconomic status, social isolation, work stress and hostility get under the skin, and influence biological functions in health and disease. A second theme is the investigation of lifestyle and patterns of health behaviour, and how health behaviour interacts with biological processes to affect disease risk.. ...
