Chest Pain
  • It causes symptoms similar to heart disease - such as fatigue upon exertion, shortness of breath, palpitations, sweating and chest pain - but upon examination, nothing is found to be physically wrong with the patient."[medhelp.org]

Cardiac Signs and Symptoms
  • SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS CARDIAC DISTURBANCES It is because of cardiac signs and symptoms that most cases appear for examination, and it is also because of these dominant manifestations that most cases become inadequate.[history.amedd.army.mil]
Anxiety Disorder
  • 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]
  • Neurocirculatory asthenia is most typically seen as a form of anxiety disorder.[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]

Treatment

  • The book then offers an overview of treatment approaches. It concludes with a definition of fatigue—both "primary" and "secondary"—and suggestions for future study.[books.google.com]
  • Read on Wikipedia About Shortness of Breath Discussions around the web We found 12 discussions Treato does not review third-party posts for accuracy of any kind, including for medical diagnosis or treatments, or events in general.[treato.com]
  • From Wikipedia: "Treatment The reports of DaCosta, and Wheeler show that patients recovered from the more severe symptoms when removed from the strenuous activity or sustained lifestyle that caused them.[medhelp.org]
  • It is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.[sideeffects.embl.de]
  • In NCA the outstanding point is that there is no specifiic treatment' This is only natural because it is a syndrom which has different causes. In our department we are using Eserine and Trancopal as an aid.[jstage.jst.go.jp]

Prognosis

  • At a 1-year follow-up, patients with primary neurocirculatory asthenia had a much better prognosis than those with secondary neurocirculatory asthenia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, the exact prevalence of hypertension, as well as its long-term prognosis, is still unknown. The present case-control study was designed to address these two issues.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
