Psychosis Symptoms

Those experiencing the following may suffer from psychosis or psychotic episodes:

These involve perceiving things that are not real, such as hearing voices, seeing objects, people, or things that others cannot see, or feeling sensations that have no external cause.

Delusions are strong, false beliefs that are resistant to reason or contradictory evidence. Common types of delusions include paranoid delusions (believing others are plotting against you), grandiose delusions (having an inflated sense of self-importance), and bizarre delusions (holding beliefs that are implausible and illogical).

Individuals with psychosis may have trouble organizing their thoughts and may exhibit incoherent speech or difficulty following a logical conversation.

This can manifest as unpredictable and unusual behaviors, including agitation, catatonia (lack of movement or response), or extreme agitation.

People experiencing psychosis may not recognize that their thoughts, beliefs, or perceptions are abnormal, making it challenging to convince them to seek help.

They might isolate themselves from friends and family due to fear or paranoia related to their delusions or hallucinations.

Individuals with psychosis may experience extreme mood swings, often feeling extreme fear, anxiety, or agitation.

Psychosis can significantly impair an individual’s ability to perform everyday tasks, such as work, self-care, and maintaining relationships.

Types of Eating Disorders

Anorexia is characterized by extreme restriction of food intake, often accompanied by an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted body image. People with anorexia typically have a significantly low body weight for their age and height, which can lead to severe physical and psychological health consequences.

Bulimia involves episodes of binge eating, during which a person consumes large amounts of food in a short period, followed by compensatory behaviors such as purging (vomiting or using laxatives), excessive exercise, or fasting to try to get rid of the calories consumed during the binge.

BED is characterized by recurrent episodes of binge eating without the compensatory behaviors seen in bulimia. People with BED often feel a loss of control during these episodes and may eat rapidly, to the point of discomfort. It can lead to weight gain and obesity, along with emotional distress.

ARFID involves a limited range of food choices and avoidance of certain foods or textures, often unrelated to concerns about weight or body image. It can lead to nutritional deficiencies and interfere with normal growth and development, especially in children.

This category includes disorders that do not meet all the criteria for anorexia, bulimia, or BED but still significantly impact an individual’s eating habits and overall well-being. This encompasses a range of symptoms and behaviors related to disordered eating.

Eating Disorder Symptoms

This includes rapid weight loss or gain, often resulting from restrictive eating, binge eating, or purging behaviors.

People with eating disorders often obsessively think about food, calories, dieting, and their body size and shape. They may engage in constant self-criticism related to their appearance.

For disorders like bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder, frequent episodes of consuming large amounts of food in a short period, accompanied by a sense of loss of control, is a key symptom.

Individuals with anorexia nervosa or other restrictive eating patterns may severely limit their food intake, leading to malnutrition, extreme thinness, and physical weakness.

This includes self-induced vomiting, laxative or diuretic misuse, or excessive exercise used to compensate for binge eating or to control weight.

Eating disorders can lead to various physical complications, such as fatigue, dizziness, irregular menstrual cycles, hair loss, gastrointestinal problems, and dental issues.

Excessive and compulsive exercise, even when injured or fatigued, can be a symptom of certain eating disorders, especially anorexia nervosa.
