Emotional Symptoms of Physical Health Problems

Physical health problems have a great impact on our emotional wellbeing and ability to cope. When we experience issues with our physical health, we may feel a strong emotional reaction that can be difficult to manage. Recent studies show that the emotional response to our health problems influences the recovery of the problem associated with our physical health. Counselling can be a means of coping with physical & emotional symptoms of health problems.


Long-Term Physical Conditions and Mental Health

Some physical problems are associated with the mental health issues more than others. For example, asthma is a condition where stress is known to be a trigger, sometimes even with fatal consequences for the individual. Anyone suffering from severe asthma attacks could benefit greatly from receiving advice on stress management.

Some physical health problems, such as chronic and long-term illnesses, can create a clinically meaningful emotional discomfort to both the patient and his loved ones. It is advisable to contact an expert Psychologist or Psychotherapist in situations where you feel an emotional distress that is difficult to manage.

Other problems, such as ulcers, gastritis and some types of dermatitis such as psoriasis are regarded by the scientific community as  psychosomatic in nature. For patients affected by these conditions it is advisable to undertake a course of psychotherapy to support medical treatments.

Thanks to recent scientific research in the medical field, we know that a high percentage of patients suffering from chronic heart disease also experience the signs of clinical depression. The mortality rate for heart disease is much higher if there is a co-occurrence of depression. The factors involved could include a tendency for depressed patients not to follow medical treatments.
