Suggest treatment for stress and anxiety in children
His fear manifests itself in health fears which we have checked with every specialty. We are taking his fears seriously and he is seeing a therapist. His latest fear is that a sudden movement of any kind (bending over,turning his arm a certain way) will causing internal damage and unchecked internal bleeding. I have assured him his body will not have internal bleeding from any sudden movement but can you please confirm it. Thank-you very much
Thanks for the query.
I can understand your concern.
It looks like a conversion reaction to me (a type of anxiety).
Stress of adapting to new environment may cause it.
Don't overreact to children's fears. While parents shouldn't ignore their children's fears, they should also try not to overreact to them.
How parents respond to their children's fears can determine whether the fear will continue to be a problem, or be overcome.
You can try some medication like imipramine after conssulting a psychiatrist.
Happy to help you with follow up query.
Thanks very much
It's not bleeding because.
Thanks for the follow up.
I can assure you that it is not bleeding as,
Bleeding usually causes pain.
Blood that irritates the diaphragm (the muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen) may cause pain in the chest or pain that radiates to the shoulder.
Bleeding in the brain is usually associated with decreased mental function which may include vomiting, lethargy, coma, seizure, or coma.
And you don't have any symptoms.
And most important thing is that any movement or just pressing the body part does not cause any bleeding, i can say you this with 100% assurance.
So don't worry , it will be alright as the time passes.
If i helped you kindly rate the answer.
