Neurosis: the symptoms

Neuroses have common symptoms:

  • Psychic and / or physical anguish
  • Inappropriate behavior
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Sleep problems: insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Instability of mood

These symptoms are not systematic and vary from person to person.

There are four major types of neuroses, the symptoms of which differ:

Obsessive neurosis or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder : the person has obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are ideas, affects or images that parasitize thought and are repeatedly and involuntarily imposed on the subject (for example: fear of microbes, fear of forgetting, etc.). Compulsions are often secondary to obsessions. These are acts that the subject feels obliged to carry out even if he recognizes their absurdity (eg washing hands, checking, etc.).

Phobic neurosis or phobic disorder : the patient presents anxiety attacks only when confronted with a specific object or situation (example: in the subway, facing a spider, vomiting, etc.)

Anxiety neurosis : anxiety attacks occur without triggering factors as precise as in phobic or obsessional neurosis. They are frequent and can be very disabling in the social, emotional and professional functioning of the subject.

Hysterical neurosis : the subject expresses his anxieties through his body but unconsciously. There is no simulation in hysterical neurosis even though the subject often derives unintelligent benefits from his physical ailments (eg, discomfort without physical cause).
