Dr. Satyakant Trivedi, (Mental Health Expert, running the ‘Yes to Life’ campaign)

Jatin is troubled by his stomach problems since last 15 years. Along with abdominal pain, he sometimes gets constipation, sometimes diarrhea. He feels as if there is a lot of gas formation in the stomach, belching keeps coming again and again. It is also felt that the gas also goes into his head and back. With nervousness, insomnia, irritability, she remains disinterested in her work. The problem started from school time disturbed his life. His father tells that he took a loan and showed it to many stomach doctors of the country. Not believing the tests done by his own fellow doctors every time, every doctor did the same tests on him, but nothing worked out. Everyone says IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). They also give some medicines, but they do not get relief. The financial pressure caused by Jatin’s problem also affected many decisions in his household. A video on YouTube prompted him to go to a psychiatrist for this problem. After a few months of treatment, she is much better now. Jatin wonders why he didn’t get advice from other doctors to see a psychiatrist.

Somatoform disorder is a type of mental illness in which physical symptoms persist even in the absence of physical illnesses, which adversely affect the lifestyle of the person. The World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases classifies IBS as a somatoform disorder. Brain-intestinal imbalances in the nervous system, effects on the coordination of the hypothalamus-pituitary axis, infections, unbalanced bowel movements, hypersensitivity of internal organs, family problems, the presence of mental diseases, etc. have been seen as major causes. Nervousness, stress and insomnia affect the movement of the intestines and the sensitivity of the internal organs. According to research, some other mental illness is also seen in about 60 to 95 percent of cases of IBS. Thoughts of self harm are also seen in many people. The whole family is badly affected directly by investigations, counseling and indirectly by low productivity. Due to this many times most of the people suffering from this problem keep going to non-psychiatrists for consultation. Due to lack of professional advice in this regard, they are often denied lifelong consultation with a psychiatrist.
