Assalamua’laikum Wr. Wb …
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
There are a number of possibilities that might cause complaints to your aunt as you say. It must be understood that the patient's condition still requires direct evaluation and examination by the doctor. Some possibilities include:
Episodes of mild depression, with symptoms of feelings of sadness, loss of interest and pleasure, fatigue, decreased activity, decreased self-confidence, withdrawal from relationships, feelings of guilt and uselessness, ideas for self-injury or suicide; these symptoms occur for a minimum of 2 weeks; cause a little difficulty in carrying out work and social activities, but can still function socially everyday
Severe depressive episodes, with symptoms similar to those with mild depressive episodes; these symptoms occur for a minimum of 2 weeks; has resulted in the inability to do work or daily social activities
Severe depressive episodes with psychotic symptoms, with symptoms such as those that occur in major depressive episodes, accompanied by delusal symptoms (beliefs that are contrary to reality but are constantly maintained and cannot be changed logically) and / or hallucinations
We recommend that your aunt be consulted directly with a doctor or psychiatric specialist. Psychiatric problems can not be determined without prior diagnosis through direct evaluation and examination by a doctor or psychiatric specialist. Later, the doctor will need to take a history of the patient's complaint history and related biopsychosocial factors, conduct a comprehensive physical examination, and supportive examinations if there are indications. Through this series of assessment processes, the doctor will obtain an appropriate evaluation of the patient's condition so that he can plan the necessary treatment.
Patients can be given a doctor in the form of supportive psychotherapy that can help them manage stress, identify symptoms, and control themselves when symptoms occur. If there are indications, the doctor may also give drugs that can help patients feel more comfortable and help overcome the disease.
We advise you to be a good and supportive listener if the patient tells about the complaint he feels. Support from people closest to you who are trusted will greatly assist in the successful handling of psychiatric problems. Patients are also encouraged to continue their favorite activities so that they can channel their feelings through positive things.
Thus information from us. May be useful.
