I am sorry for your symptoms. I understand your concern.
Coming to going further on evaluation and management -
There's no test to positively diagnose psychosis. However, your GP will ask about your symptoms and possible causes.
For example, they may ask you:
whether you're taking any medicines
whether you've been taking illegal substances
how your moods have been – for example, whether you've been depressed
how you've been functioning day-to-day – for example, whether you're still working
whether you have a family history of mental health conditions, such as schizophrenia
about the details of your hallucinations, such as whether you've heard voices
about the details of your delusions, such as whether you feel people are controlling you
about any other symptoms you have
The evidence supporting the early treatment of psychosis means you're likely to be referred to a specialist urgently.
Who you're referred to will depend on the services available in your area. You may be referred to:
a community mental health team – a team of mental health professionals who provide support to people with complex mental health conditions
a crisis resolution team – a team of mental health professionals who treat people who would otherwise require treatment in hospital
an early intervention team – a team of mental health professionals who work with people who have experienced their first episode of psychosis
These teams are likely to include some or all of the following healthcare professionals:
a psychiatrist – a qualified medical doctor who has received further training in treating mental health conditions
a community mental health nurse – a nurse with specialist training in mental health conditions
a psychologist – a healthcare professional who specialises in the assessment and treatment of mental health conditions.
May I suggest you discuss these possibilities with your primary care physician and get yourself appropriately evaluated and managed please.
