Suggestibility
  • A link between these two conditions has been suggested but never documented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The data suggest that the cardiovascular complaints of the normal psychological test group can be attributed to somatic factors, especially to a small size of the heart.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results are suggestive of a strong relationship between stressful life events and neurocirculatory asthenia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Abstract A number of reports have suggested that neurocirculatory asthenia, sometimes called anxiety neurosis or neurasthenia, 1 is a cause of or is associated with electrocardiographic abnormalities. 2-9 The nature of these abnormalities was variable[annals.org]
Anxiety Disorder
  • Neurocirculatory asthenia is most typically seen as a form of anxiety disorder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In 47 patients (59%), a psychiatric diagnosis (mainly an anxiety disorder) antedated the onset of neurocirculatory asthenia, which was thus defined as secondary, also because cardiorespiratory symptoms were part of the mental symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Chronic hyperventilation is not as easily recognized and is often overlooked, missed, or ignored in diagnostic workups. The reason is multifactorial.[ndnr.com]
