Da Costa's Syndrome by reality-must-die Da Costa's Syndrome by reality-must-die
Oil on canvas panel, 50x70cm

Da Costa's syndrome, which was colloquially known as soldier's heart, is a syndrome with a set of symptoms that are similar to those of heart disease, though a physical examination does not reveal any physiological abnormalities. In modern times, Da Costa's syndrome is considered the manifestation of an anxiety disorder and treatment is primarily behavioral, involving modifications to lifestyle and daily exertion.

@ mntnman That isn't true... Whoever thinks it is, DON'T! The person who did this is trying to scare you. Even if this was true, it would be on the news. Please do not be scared by a 'comment!'

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

I read it! NO I'M DEAD! I don't believe this... It's all superstition... Nobody do this! It's FALSE! If you wanna get kissed or asked out, get your husband to do it.

I think I may have this, I just quite smoking and developed panic attacks and shit. Every couple of days I am compleatly convinced my heart is dying and I will have a heart attack, but I'm fine. I've always been an anxious and paranoid person, this painting is awesome!

It seems very likely, that you suffer from this syndrome. Go to a doc and let him check your heart. If everything is ok, you don't need to worry at all. At least this is my experience. :) Thank you very much!

Thank you very much! :)

I use pencil for the pre scetch and overpaint it with a thin and watery acrylics layer that has the undertone of the final painting, mostly brown or blue.
