Hypersensitivity as a symptom or diagnosis

I realise that a lot of people out here are hypersensitive e.g. to different ideas, new findings, personal insults etc.

I wonder if hypersensitivity should now be classed as a symptom of the mind e.g. as wheeze is to asthma.

Perhaps there should be a hypersensitivity score.

We use anxiety GAD7 and depression PHQ9 scores.

I think that sometimes we should use the hope score more frequently. It often gets to the nub of the case.

I think hypersensitivity is caused by some food chemistries, plant defense system chemicals or pesticides can do that. It is induced.

I agree with you, for how long did doctors fail to recognize mental issues such as ADD, Aspergers.... all shoved under the carpet because they couldn't explain the cause or thought it held no merit.

If it impedes on the quality of life, should it not at least deserve some attention?

There are 450 mental disorder descriptions(listed by the world health org)
psychiatry can cure ZERO of these
the quicker we move to individual/genetics chemistry treatments the better
