Problems caused by hyperventilation syndrome
Breathing in the human body is underinfluence not only vegetative, but also somatic nervous system. This means that the emotional state of the individual can affect the respiratory functions. Instability in the psychoemotional sphere in some cases leads to disruptions in the work of the respiratory system, increased or decreased number of breaths, interruptions in oxygen supply to body tissues. The acidity of the blood changes, as a result of which there is a violation of metabolic processes, and ends with all hyperventilation syndrome.
Symptoms of this pathological conditionresemble manifestations of such diseases as bronchitis, angina pectoris, pharyngitis, asthma. Often this circumstance confuses young doctors before making a diagnosis. However, inherently these diseases are very different from each other. The difference is in the nature of the occurrence, which has a hyperventilation syndrome. The reasons for its appearance are purely psychological. He is prone to people who are prone to strong emotional experiences. The impetus for the manifestation of symptoms are frequent stressful and anxious conditions, severe anxiety and depression. Symptomatics is not limited to the appearance of respiratory disorders. It can combine both muscular and spasmodic reactions, and disorders of the digestive system, and attacks of panic attacks. However, there are the main symptoms produced by the hyperventilation syndrome. These include:
- difficulty breathing and a sense of lack of air;
- feeling of squeezing in the chest;
- sensation of superficial shallow breathing.
Diagnosis of this disease is difficultdue to a wide range of symptomatic manifestations. For diseases of the cardiovascular, endocrine and respiratory systems, the symptoms that are manifested in patients with hyperventilation syndrome are also characteristic. To avoid misdiagnosis, a thorough examination of the patient is necessary. He needs to make ultrasound of the thyroid gland and X-ray of the lungs, as well as donate blood for analysis. With hyperventilation syndrome, the level of potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus in the blood decreases. The sodium content, on the contrary, is usually higher than normal.
The root of the disease lies in the emotional statepatient. Therefore, this disease has to do with the profile specialization of a neuropathologist. It is this specialist that deals with the elimination of difficulties in the psychoemotional sphere, to which the hyperventilation syndrome belongs. Treatment with folk remedies is also not excluded. It is important to understand the main thrust of the therapeutic effect. It is necessary, first of all, to change the attitude of the patient to his problem and to stimulate the increase of self-control over his condition. The doctor makes treatment in three aspects at once:
- drug treatment;
- breathing exercises;
- psychotherapeutic treatment. </ ul </ p>
