Bipolar Disorder as Comorbidity with Sj ögren's Syndrome: What Can We Do?

Bipolar Disorder as Comorbidity with Sjögren's Syndrome: What Can We Do? Case Rep Psychiatry. 2020;2020:8899615 Authors: Chebli S, Zgueb Y, Ouali U, Taleb S, Nacef F Abstract Neuropsychiatric manifestations in Sjögren's syndrome are common and can occur not only during its course, but also at the onset of the disease. Depression and anxiety were the most frequently described symptoms. However, the association with bipolar disorder seems to be rare and not well documented. This case report presents a patient with bipolar disorder as comorbidity with Sjögren's syndrome, suggesting that bipolar disorder could be associated with this autoimmune disease, which could lead to delaying diagnosis and treatment. A better analysis of the clinical background should be done by psychiatrists so to help early diagnosis and adapting prescription. Corticosteroids indicated in Sjögren's syndrome should be prescribed with caution in bipolar disorder. PMID: 32963872 [PubMed]

Abstract The purpose of this article is to describe complex psychiatric disorders, to recall "minimal classical" explorations in psychiatry, to describe the concept of "complex psychiatric disorders" and to propose a systematized method of exploration. Some organic diseases are well known for their links with psychiatric disorders (manic syndrome and hyperthyroidism, depressive syndrome and corticotropic insufficiency, anxiety disorder and heart disease, etc.). Many other neurological, autoimmune, metabolic, paraneoplastic or endocrine pathologies can have essentially psycho-behavioral manifest...

Patients with a mental health condition might have a hard time accessing opioids for pain relief, while patients with unexplained pain are often referred to psychiatric care, which does little to alleviate their symptoms. Finding treatment can be frustrating and humiliating. Four years ago, Dez Nelson’s pain management clinic demanded that she complete a visit with a psychologist. Nelson was surprised, since she had no history of mental illness, but she didn’t feel that she could push back on the request. “Of course I said okay — I didn’t want to lose my treatment,” Nelson told The Fix. ...

Something’s just not right: lately you are forgetful, stressed, and tired all of the time. Symptoms can vary from mood swings, to lack of concentration, to feeling chronically tired, and anxious.

And you’re finding that all of this is affecting your performance at work, as a parent, and even as a partner/spouse. It’s not your imagination.  Grains are behind it all… The grains you consume may have numerous damaging effects on your brain and nervous system, not ju...

There’s such a thing as trying too hard. Anyone who has ever suffered through a case of insomnia knows this well. The harder you try to sleep, the less rest you get. Sleep only comes if you can relax and let go. It’s true for many other things, too. Like garage-door controls. The other day, I was trying to get into my neighbor’s house to walk his dog and pressed the code into the box outside the garage more than 20 times, but the garage wouldn’t lift. “You’re pressing the buttons too hard,” my daughter told me. She did the sequence one time, pressing the buttons effortlessly, and u...

Someone in recovery circles once told me that if you have one foot in the past and another in the future, you are essentially peeing on the present. I try to remember that when I’m engulfed in regret — obsessing about all the things I did wrong in the past and wishing to God I had made different decisions. However, writing about my mistakes has always been healing for me because I’d like to think this small action could possibly prevent someone else from making the same ones. If I can help a young person or anyone who has recently been diagnosed with depression take a more direct route to healing, it seem...
