Diagnosis

A brief medical/health history

Disruptions in one’s standard patterns of thought, perception, emotion, language, and sense of self and behavior define schizophrenia, a long-lasting and plain mental condition that disturbs more than 21 million personalities universally. Hallucinations, most often including inquiry voices or seeing effects that be situated there, and misbeliefs, characterized by firm, incorrect beliefs, are common. A man in his 20s who sought help at a mental health facility said that he had lost weight and heard voices for the last ten months. He also said he wandered throughout the town and was occasionally violent against his mother and sister when he did come home. The patient elaborated that he also felt threatened and believed that others intended to hurt him. The patient said he called in sick to work and requested a replacement, but he never showed up for his shift again. His leave of absence began a month after he earned payment for tasks completed while on the job. He decided to try withdrawing money from many banks by hopping around to each one. After his third unsuccessful effort at a single branch, he was taken in for four days of arbitrary incarceration. He also claimed to have received death intimidations and finished phone calls from unidentified sources (Newbury, 2022). No actual words were verbal, but he understood it to be a sign that his life was about to be stolen. His family background described him as having grown up in the city with his mother and sister. His sweetheart lived in a separate city suburb. He had a history of paranoid delusions, according to his medical records. No family member has ever suffered from a mental or physical disorder. His introverted character existed prior to his sickness. Relevant symptoms also include the physician’s resulting in a reduction history of physical violence towards his mother and sister, as well as his complaints of sleeping problems, lack of food, roaming about town, and trips to the psychiatric unit. Upon admittance to the hospital, the patient was examined and found to be mentally unstable. He or she was also underdressed and seemed to be malnourished. He acted timidly, laughed irrationally, and was hesitant. Hearing hallucinations plagued the sufferer. He spoke to himself in the third person and claimed to be conversing with a male and female voice. The patient also said he had overheard individuals speaking negatively about him, including those he knew. As a result, he became wary of and uncomfortable with new people. Because of this, the patient said he had spe

The patient was selected from a group of adult patients who presented to the clinic complaining of experiencing intermittent chest pains. Most patients who contributed to the clinic with this chief complaint were older adults over 62 with terminal illnesses such as heart attacks, cancers, and lung diseases. As a result, the patient became a perfect candidate for this project. The patient has consented to be involved in the project and has agreed to provide the information required.

The patient identifies himself as Shawn Davis (S.D). The patient is a 47 year old African American male who presents to the clinic complaining of experiencing intermittent chest pains that began two weeks ago when he was trimming grass in his backyard. The patient suggests that he has been feeling generally weak and tired for the past two days after the onset of the symptoms. The patient explains that the pain mainly occurs in the midstream and intermittently twice or thrice in one week. The patient states that he feels like the pressure is being exerted on his chest or a pressing heavy weight. The patient suggests that he has tried self-medication using anti-acids and massaging the chest to relieve the feeling, but there is no relief. He explains that when he ignores the pain, it radiates to the neck. He also suggests that he experienced symptoms such as shortness of breath when he was experiencing pain and reduced pain after rest, coughing, and nausea. The patient appears to be generally strong, and he sits upright. He has clear communication, and he has dressed appropriately for his age.
