When Dr. Samuel Hahnemann discovered three of the seven miasms 200 years ago, he observed that many people who had infectious gonorrhea also developed small warts all over their body. So he named this miasm "sycotic" meaning "fig wart". Though pronounced the same as "psychotic", it is not related to nor does it mean the same as this word.

This is the main miasm responsible for rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Tourette Syndrome, fibromyalgia, herpes, impotence, and sterility problems. Because of this miasm's ability to create arthritis, you may notice some muscle stiffness with swelling of the joints, particularly the hands and ankles. It may give rise to some shortness of breath, stitching pains in the chest, or even upset stomach. Sometimes there is weakness while walking and you may feel lightheaded or faint.

Sycotic produces a skeptical, non-believer style of thinking. People with strong sycotic miasms are very hard to convince, for example, that a new medicine or a different viewpoint may be beneficial for them or that their life will ever improve. They are often sullen, irritable, and fixed in their ideas. It also shares a manic-depression quality that is similarly found in the polio miasm. For instance, for a couple of days you may feel on top of the world, and later, a deep depression may follow. The sycotic depression carries with it a tiredness bordering on  exhaustion and collapse. Other symptoms of the sycotic miasm include:

forgetfulness  •  dullness  •  talkativeness  •  manipulative

suspicious (paranoid)  •  anger  •  fear of dark  •  rebellious

panic attacks  •  nausea  •  headaches  •  sore throats

runny nose  •  canker sores in mouth  •   nose bleeds

chronic diarrhea  •  stuttering  •  bipolar disorders

overeating  •  chronic lateness  •  alcoholism  

drug abuse

obsessive behaviors  •  violence  •  emphysema
