Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a mental health condition where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others. BDD can seriously affect a sufferer's daily life, including their work, social and professional life, intimacy and relationships.
Muscle Dysmorphic Disorder (MDD) is a type of Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). It is popularly known as “Bigorexia” by the media. It consists of a preoccupation with not being sufficiently muscular or lean (when this is not the case). They worry that they are small and undeveloped.In efforts to fix their perceived smallness, people with muscle dysmorphia lift weights, do resistance training, and exercise compulsively. They may take steroids or other muscle-building drugs. The constant preoccupation with perceived smallness interferes with their social life, relationships, academic and career accomplishments.
