Somatic symptoms include a range of physical experiences, such as pain, muscle tension, body shaking, difficulty in breathing, heart palpitation, blushing, fatigue, and sweating. Somatic symptoms are common in major depressive disorder (MDD), anxiety disorders, and some other psychiatric disorders. However, the etiology of somatic symptoms remains unclear. Somatic symptoms could be a response to emotional distress in patients with those psychiatric conditions. Increasing evidence supports the role of aberrant serotoninergic and noradrenergic neurotransmission in somatic symptoms. The physiological alterations underlying di...

We describe the fabrication of an amperometric and non-enzymatic biosensor based on WO3 NBs@GR nanocomposite modified electrode for nanomolar detection of PGT. The results showed that the nanocomposite modified electrode exhibit well-defined electro-oxidation peak compared to bare and control electrodes, demonstrating the superior electrocatalytic ability and performances. The fabricated modified sensor was facilitates the analysis of PGT in the concentration ranges of 0.025-1792.5 µM with a low detection limit of 4.28 nM. Further, the as-prepared WO3 NBs@GR electrode has been applied to determination of PGT in h...

Conclusion: The interventional mean of PRF combined with medication has a good effect on PHN. The effect of nerve block combined with medication on PHN seems to be the same as that of medication alone. Besides, a long period with high-quality randomized controlled trial should be done to verify the results.

According to a paper in the British Journal of Medicine, a randomized control trial of 309 patients showed that advanced care planning improved end of life care and reduced stress, anxiety, and depression in patients and their family members. Unfortunately, there is still a surprisingly large number of individuals who do not engage in advance care planning. For instance, one study in Health Affairs found that only 36.7% of people in the United States had completed an advance directive. Another study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine in 2014 found that of 7946 respondents, 73.7% did not have an advanc...

The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) is a brief self-report measure commonly used to screen for symptoms of anxiety and depression in cancer patients. The HADS has demonstrated validity in over 100 languages, including Spanish. However, validation studies have largely used European Spanish-speaking samples with a variety of medical diagnoses.

We learned years ago that, once you are wheat- and grain-free, re-exposures to any wheat or grains can provoke some awful re-exposure reactions. Here, I discuss the range of unpleasant consequences that develop with wheat and grain re-exposure. Among the consequences of re-exposure are: Gastrointestinal distress—discofort/pain, diarrhea, bloating Joint pain—especially of the fingers, hands, wrists, and elbows, occasionally large joints Mental/emotional effects—most commonly anxiety, anger, depression, irritability Reactivation of autoimmune diseases Hunger—re-exposure to gliadin-derived opioid pept...

Conclusions: The relationship among anxiety symptoms, depression symptoms, and pain intensity was completely mediated by CS. Furthermore, the relationship between catastrophic thinking and pain intensity was partially mediated by CS. Our findings suggest that CS mediates relation between psychological factors and pain intensity, and CS-focused intervention may be important. PMID: 31089402 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Patients with acute psychopathology, recent emotional or physical stress and acute cardio-thoracic symptoms should receive immediate cardiological investigations. As the ECG may be normal in patients with TCM, concurrent measurement of the troponin serum level is recommended. Psychiatrists should consider TCM in patients, who report recent stressful events accompanied by cardio-thoracic symptoms.
