Question Schizophrenia

My doctor and I are trying to rule out if I have Schizophrenia, Schizotypal, Schizoaffective disorder, or nothing at all. So I wanted to know if anyone can help rule it out. Here's my symptoms: Bizarre behaviors, very moderate hallucinations, Irritable or tense feeling, Trouble concentrating, Trouble sleeping, moderate lack of emotion, isolation, delusions, anxiety, anger, odd facial expressions. I am in my teen years so I dont have that much hallucinations, and my great grandmother has schizophrenia.

Re: Schizophrenia

Your symptoms certainly fit with schizophrenia. The other two are just variations of schizophrenia, but the bottom line is that this can be treated with moderate to good control in most people as long as you get established on the proper meds at the right dose and stay on them. The schizo-affective would be schizo. with mania, depression or both (bipolar illness.) You might read up on that and see if your symptoms include periods of severe depression and/or mania, (severe lows and highs). It is great that you are open-minded to this and recognize something is wrong.
