Crowded and noisy during the Spring Festival
Last week, a male traveler had a sudden hallucination due to a stressful journey. After wandering around the square in front of the ticket office of Guangzhou Railway Station for a moment, he suddenly climbed up a bulletin board that was seven or eight meters high, talking and dancing, and wanted to jump down.
Experts said that this person was suspected of traveling syndrome, which specifically belongs to travel mental illness.
Spring Festival enters the peak period of traffic, stale air, crowded people, noisy sounds can easily cause the occurrence of travel mental illness.
Although most people only have temporary transient emotions, mental patients are only a few, and they can be recurrent, ranging from hallucinations, delusions, and possibly killing or jumping by suicide, etc., which affect the safety of other passengers and need to be vigilant.
Introverted personality is a susceptible group. Travel psychosis. As the name implies, it refers to acute, transient psychotic disorder that occurs during or after a long journey.
Before the Spring Festival, the country’s climate was changeable. Temperature differences between cracks may occur from Guangdong to other places. Coupled with the peak of the Spring Festival, especially trains and buses, it is prone to the occurrence and recurrence of mental illness.
Hospital psychiatry experts said that there are usually two cases of patients with mental problems during the journey: one is the underlying mental illness, which refers to those who have previously suffered from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and other mental illnesses while travelingZhongzhong was affected by the surrounding environment, people and things, and caused the onset of the disease. The other is the person rather than suffering from a mental illness, but a mental disorder occurs in the travel environment at the time of the trip, which causes travel mental illness.
Experts said that of course, although this type of patients is not sick, there will still be hidden dangers in their own psychology.
Studies have shown that such patients have an introverted or paranoid personality, showing silence, loneliness, pessimism, hostility towards others, etc., and a certain susceptible psychological quality.
Noisy and crowded environment is an important cause of mental illness during the journey. Experts have analyzed that excessive fatigue, overcrowding, noisy environment, turbid air, and obstruction during travel may be the inducement.
Specifically, there is often a combination of factors such as significant mental stress, excessive torso fatigue, overcrowding and noisy, chronic hypoxia, insufficient sleep, and excessive nutritional deficiencies before the onset of the disease, leading to some people’s adaptation of mental and physical functions to environmental changesAcute mental disorder with reduced ability, mental breakdown, and unresponsiveness.
The majority of the people affected were migrant workers, students, and migrant workers, all of whom were financially unaffected, with younger onset, mostly young adults, and generally reduced ride times.
At the peak of the Spring Festival, especially trains, buses, and trains are often crowded, even overloaded, full of normal life is disrupted, lack of sleep, mental fatigue, and sometimes even drinking water is difficult. The air is mixed with human odor, smokeSmell, smell of food, turbid smell, and all kinds of talking and train sounds. If I add something unpleasant to me, such as romance, divorce, family conflict, theft of money or work,With the population angle, etc., anxiety is difficult to vent, and it is easy to erupt suddenly.
In fact, when encountering the above environment, let alone people with underlying diseases, even healthy people will be disturbed.
Environmental psychologists and clinical medical scientists have done experiments like this: Several healthy people were invited to stroll in densely populated and noisy streets for 1 hour. Examination found that most people had elevated blood pressure and arrhythmiaMany people complain of dizziness, irritability, and even nausea and vomiting.
Typical symptoms victimized delusional trips psychiatric symptoms are typical. At the beginning, there will be upset, suffocation, shortness of breath, uncomfortableness, tantrums, shouting, and gradually appear tension, suffocation, fear, faster breathing, faster heartbeat,Nausea, numbness, etc., then there will be disturbance of consciousness, loss of orientation, comprehension and judgment, and some naive withdrawal behavior may occur. The most prominent manifestation is the occurrence of mental symptoms. The most common are: delusions of being victimized,For example, if someone thinks that someone is chasing and killing himself or someone is harming himself, in this case, the patient may fight back against the “harm to himself”, such as hitting the opponent, using a knife to stab the opponent, or they may “run away”, sometimes jumping,Cars running around, may also seek “help”, some alarms, etc. may also appear chaotic behavior, throwing things, taking other people’s things, purposeless behavior, talking to themselves, spreading hair, talking nonsense, hurtingWait for yourself.
Simple treatment can be restored in a short time. Experts say that there must be multiple people who will only temporarily distort emotions. Once they leave the environment and return home safely, they will recover in a day or two.
Even if you have a mental illness on the road, treatment does not take too long, it usually recovers in a few days, and it completely improves in a few hours. This has something to do with your physical fitness.
Some drugs are given intramuscularly, some are given antipsychotic drugs, and then supportive treatment is given. The patients can recover soon after rest.
Patients often cannot recall what happened afterwards, and some of them can only partially recall.
