Last week, a male traveler had a sudden hallucination due to his journey. After wandering in the square in front of the ticket office of the Guangzhou Railway Station for a moment, he suddenly climbed up the bulletin board, which was seven or eight meters high . Experts said that this person was suspected of traveling syndrome, which specifically belongs to travel mental illness.
Hun Chunyun enters the peak period of people s traffic, and dirty air, crowded people, and noisy sounds can easily cause travel mental illness. Although most people only have temporary negative emotions, mental patients are only a small number. Once they are sick , they may have hallucinations and delusions, and they may kill or commit suicide by jumping, which affects the safety of other passengers and requires vigilance.
Journey mental illness refers to the acute, transient psychotic disorder that occurs during or after a long journey. Before the Spring Festival, the country s climate was changeable, and a large temperature difference might occur from Guangdong to other places. In addition to the peak of the Spring Festival, especially when taking trains or buses, it was prone to the occurrence and recurrence of mental illness.
Experts from the hospital s psychiatry department 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 psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder., Caused by the adverse stimulus of the surrounding environment, people and things, and caused the onset of the disease. The other is that I do not suffer from mental illness, but have a mental disorder in a long journey environment and cause 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.
The reason for travel mental illness is that experts analyze that excessive fatigue, overcrowding, noisy environment, cloudy air, and obstruction during travel may be the inducement. Specifically, the onset of mental stress, physical fatigue, overcrowding and noisy, chronic hypoxia, lack of sleep, and excessive nutritional deficiencies often result in a combination of factors such as mental stress, physical function, and environmental changes. Ability to adapt to decline, acute mental disorders with mental breakdown and unresponsiveness.
The majority of the people affected are migrant workers, students, and migrant workers, all of whom are economically unaffected, with younger onset, mostly in young adults, and generally take longer to ride. At the peak of the Spring Festival, especially when taking trains and buses, the carriages are often crowded, even overloaded and full, and the normal life rules are disrupted, lack of sleep, mental fatigue, and sometimes even drinking water is difficult. The air is mixed with human odor, smoke Smell, smell of food, turbid smell, and various noises from trains and trains. If you add yourself to unpleasant things, such as broken love, divorce, family disagreement, stolen 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 affected. Environmental psychologists and clinical medical scientists have done experiments like this: After asking a dozen healthy people to stroll in densely populated and noisy streets for an hour, the inspection found that most people had elevated blood pressure and arrhythmias, etc. Many people complain of dizziness, irritability, and even nausea and vomiting.
Symptoms of travel mental illness are typical. At the beginning, there will be upset, shortness of breath, discomfort, temper tantrums, shouting, and gradually appear tension, suffocation, fear, faster breathing, faster heartbeat, general numbness, etc., and then There will be a disturbance of consciousness, loss of orientation, comprehension and judgment, and some naive behaviors may appear. The most prominent manifestation is the occurrence of mental symptoms. The most common are: delusions of being killed, such as thinking that someone is hunting down. Someone wants to harm himself. In this case, the patient may fight back against the harm to himself, such as hitting each other, using a knife to stab each other, or escape, such as jumping a car, running around in the carriage, or Asking for help, such as reporting to the police, can also lead to behavioral disorders, littering, taking other people s things, behavioral purposelessness, talking to yourself, spreading hair, talki ng nonsense, and hurting yourself.
Experts say, of course, most people only have temporary negative emotions. Once they leave the environment and return home safely, they will recover in a day or two. Even if you suffer from mental illness during the journey, treatment does not take too long , it usually heals within a few days, and it completely improves within a few hours. This has something to do with your physical fitness. Some drugs are given intramuscularly, some are given antipsychotic drugs, and some supportive treatments are given. The patients can recover quickly after a period of rest. Patients often cannot recall what happened afterwards, and some of them can only partially recall.
