Da costa’s syndrome is being studied for more than hundreds of years. Over the years, the disease has evolved a lot and is known by many different names such as chronic fatigue syndrome, brain-heart syndrome, neurocirculatory asthenia, neurosis, cardiac anxiety, restless heart syndrome, etc. It was first studied through the soldiers’ hearts during the period of the American Civil War. Since then, Da costa’s syndrome is said to be associated with the risk of having other cardiovascular diseases, pathologies of the nervous origin, or irritable bowel syndrome.
The studies have shown that Da costa’s syndrome is associated with the risk of various medical conditions such as viral infections, diarrhea, immune system dysfunctions, dysautonomia, neuropsychiatric dysfunction, metabolic endocrine, etc. Apart from these conditions, Da Costa’s syndrome also has a risk of getting associated with sleeping disorders, total allergy syndrome, Candida infections, Chronic EBV, etc. Other than these, Da costa’s syndrome also increases the risk of palpitations, heart failure, and other cardiac conditions. This condition increases the risk of affecting the cardiac muscles, hyperthyroidism, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, asthma, and emphysema.
As Da costa’s syndrome increases the risk for various heart diseases, it creates an imbalance of nutrients, magnesium, iron, potassium, oxygen, blood, etc. in the patients’ bodies.
