Love sickness has historically been viewed as a mental illness brought on by the intense changes associated with falling in love. Ibn Sena, the 10th century physician considered to be "the father of modern medicine," viewed obsession as the principal symptom and cause of love sickness. This diagnosis has been out of favor since the collapse of the humoral model and advent of modern scientific psychiatry.
