What is Neurosis?

Neurosis is one of the most common neuropsychiatric diseases. The main reason for neuroses is psychotrauma, the importance of which is determined not by physical impact, but by information value. In other words, neurosis is a disease that arises from the impact of information.

Neuroses and neurotic states refer to reversible disorders of nervous activity. Psychotherapy of neuroses is most often successful.

The development of the disease is influenced both by the genetic properties of the nervous system, and by the attitudes of the individual, the views that formed during life.


The ability of the individual to critically assess what is happening also makes sense, which makes it possible to determine a strategy for adequate behavior even in a difficult situation, the ability to overcome difficulties and find solutions in deadlock situations.

The prevalence of patients with various neuroses is about 40-45% of the number of all patients. More than 5% of the population of Russia suffers from severe neuroses.

Types of neuroses:

  • Neurasthenia ;
  • Hysteria or hysterical neurosis;
  • The neurosis of compulsive states (obsessive-compulsive disorder), which include, among others, bulimic neurosis and hypochondriacal neurosis.

The so-called ” neuroses of internal organs “, psychogenic somatic disorders, are a manifestation of one of the types of neuroses – hysteria, neurasthenia or obsessive states.

Violation of mental functions that were formed under the influence of information is not so severe as the consequences of severe physical injuries, and most importantly – reversible.

However, if neurosis is not treated, this can seriously affect the personal life. A person begins to often experience negative experiences and is constantly in a destructive state:

  • pessimistic;
  • unsure of himself;
  • angry;
  • irritated;
  • unhappy;
  • weary;
  • passive;
  • dissatisfied;
  • frightened;
  • watchful;
  • forced;
  • miserable;
  • is sad;
  • is broken;
  • apathetic.

A person who is ill with a neurosis ceases to notice life’s pleasures and pleasures. If you leave it as it is, then the disease will develop and progress. Therefore, it is better to take one of two options:

1. Start to change yourself and your life.

2. Seek help from a specialist, which will solve the problem faster and more efficiently.
