What is Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a mental condition that hinders the ability to interpret and differentiate between reality and imagination. The individual experiences hallucinations, delusions, incoherent thinking, and behavior. The mental state of the person exhibiting signs of schizophrenia struggle to function adequately in life.

What are the Symptoms of Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia means that the individual cannot rationally and proactively complete everyday tasks. The caregivers, friends, and family members should be able to comprehend schizophrenia symptoms and encourage the individual to seek professional help. The severity and symptoms vary from individual to individual. The symptoms of schizophrenia include:

Hallucination

Schizophrenia causes the individual to suffer from hallucinations. It affects the senses, and the person may claim to hear voices and see people or objects.

Delusions

The individuals suffering from schizophrenia have false beliefs that affect their behaviour.

Distorted thinking and Speech

Disorganized thinking affects the ability to communicate with others. Most of the time, the verbal response is unrelated.

Abnormal Motor Behavior

The caregivers and friends can notice that the individual exhibiting signs of schizophrenia has a bizarre posture or inappropriate body movements. The individual does not make eye contact or facial expressions while communicating with others.

Difficulty in Maintaining Hygiene

The person with schizophrenia loses interest in everyday tasks, and due to cognitive and emotional changes, they struggle to maintain hygiene.

What Causes Schizophrenia?

The exact causes of schizophrenia are unknown; however, the factors that may lead to the mental illness include:

Changes in the Brain

The abnormal function of neurotransmitters can affect the brain chemicals and increase the risk of schizophrenia. Also, brain conditions, such as shrinkage in the brain and circuitry dysfunction, can lead to schizophrenia.

Family History

Individuals with family members diagnosed with a mental disorder must remain vigilant and monitor the behavioral changes, as they are at a higher risk of developing schizophrenia.

Complications During Birth

Mothers should prioritize their health during pregnancy, as malnourishment, infection, and brain injury during birth can cause schizophrenia.

What Part of the Brain is Affected by Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia affects brain functioning. The affected parts of the brain that lead to hallucinations, delusion, and distorted thinking includes;

Prefrontal Cortex

The prefrontal cortex is responsible for executive functioning, which includes making decisions, planning, and behaving according to cues and past experiences. The changes in the prefrontal cortex cause behavioral changes.

Basal Ganglia

Basal ganglia connects with the prefrontal cortex and reinforces the behavior that makes one feel good. There is an impairment in the connection of the basal ganglia and prefrontal cortex in individuals with schizophrenia.

Limbic System

The limbic system is responsible for learning and retaining memories. Also, individual with schizophrenia struggles to process emotions. The abnormal functioning of the limbic system causes delusions and hallucinations.

How to Treat Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is an incurable condition; however, medications and therapies are proven effective in menage the symptoms and their severity. The schizophrenia treatment proven effective in enhancing the quality of life includes;

Psychotherapy

The psychosocial interventions allow the individual to improve their skills to function adequately in daily life.

Family Therapy

The therapy aims to help the family members of schizophrenic patients to cope with the behavior effectively.

Electroconvulsive Therapy

The individuals showing no change in their mental state after taking antipsychotics are advised ECT. The brain receives short bursts of electric shock to reset the levels of neurotransmitters.

Use of Antipsychotics

The medications help reduce the impact of psychosis, hallucinations, and delusions.

Family members of schizophrenic patients can connect with a competent and reliable specialist through Fitcy Health. The platform provides information on affordable specialists available in UAE.

The specialist will perform a schizophrenia test to diagnose the type and its severity. CT scan, blood testing, and psychological assessment based on the DSM-5 criteria will assist in confirming schizophrenia.

Is there a Difference between Schizophrenia and Delusional Disorder?

Schizophrenic patients exhibit symptoms such as; hallucinations, delusion, and cognitive deficits, which affect their emotional, social, and personal life. Whereas people with delusional disorders only suffer from delusions. Delusions are irrational and false belief systems that cause detachment from reality. Individuals with delusional disorders are relatively functional. However, without medical and therapeutic intervention, it can lead to schizophrenia.

What is the Difference Between Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder?

Individuals with schizophrenia listen to imaginary voices and unrealistic images. However, schizoaffective disorder overlaps with the symptoms of mood disorders, such as clinical depression, and bipolar disorder with schizophrenia which causes detachment from reality.

What is the Difference between Psychosis and Schizophrenia?

Psychosis refers to extreme negativity that causes detachment from reality. Schizophrenia is a mental condition with brain changes that affect behavior, and psychosis occurs as a symptom in schizophrenic patients.

Why is Schizophrenia a Spectrum Disorder?

Schizophrenia is a spectrum disorder as it has various types with different levels of severity. Psychotic disorders include; schizoaffective disorder, delusional disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, and psychosis.

Famous People, who have Schizophrenia?

Individuals with schizophrenia struggle to maintain relationships and behave according to cultural norms. Celebrities diagnosed with schizophrenia include; Peter Green, Darrol Hammond, John Nash, and Skip Spence. Schizophrenia art is visible in the work of Vincent Van Gogh. The research published in The American Journal of Psychiatry concludes that the artist mainly suffers from psychotic episodes that correlate with schizophrenia. Furthermore, movies about schizophrenia include; Shutter Island, Angel Baby, and Take Shelter.

What are the 5 Types of Schizophrenia?

The five Schizophrenia Types with changes in the symptoms and their severity are:

  • Paranoid Schizophrenia
  • Catatonic Schizophrenia
  • Disorganized Schizophrenia
  • Residual Schizophrenia
  • Undifferentiated Schizophrenia

How to Cure Schizophrenia?

Most people think, can schizophrenia be cured? However, the schizophrenia cure is impossible; however, self-care, medication, and psychotherapy help the individual manage the symptoms and become proactive in every aspect of life. Individuals must seek professional help to improve behavior, social interactions, and personal relationships. Fitcy Health helps connect with a reliable psychiatrist with information regarding the latest treatment plan.

What is Catatonic Schizophrenia?

Catatonic schizophrenia is a subtype in which the individual suffers from loss of voluntary body movements, or becomes hyperactive and agitated.

What are the Symptoms of Schizoid Schizophrenia?

The symptoms of schizoid schizophrenia include:

  • The individual does not enjoy interactions and wants to stay alone.
  • The patient losses interest in a sexual relationship.
  • The individual does not react to the conversation and avoids socializing.
  • The caregivers and friends notice a lack of expression while communicating.

What Causes Schizoid Schizophrenia?

The exact cause is unknown; however, the risk factors include environmental and genetic influences. Individuals who have not received love and support in their childhood from primary caregivers are at a higher risk of suffering from schizoid schizophrenia.

How to Help Someone with Schizophrenia Who Refuses Treatment?

Friends and family members should research competent and reliable schizophrenia doctors near me through Fitcy Health. Then, encourage the person to seek professional help and join support groups. Also, it is essential to listen to them without judgment and bias.

If the individual rejects professional help, friends and caregivers should spend time with them and engage in stress-relieving activities to reduce anxiety and improve social relationships.

How to Communicate with Someone with Schizophrenia?

People aware that a close friend or family member has been diagnosed with schizophrenia should use short sentences with a calm attitude while having a conversation. Furthermore, be empathetic and use affirmative words to reduce the probability of suffering from distress and anxiety.
