Somatic Symptom Disorder
Somatic symptom disorder (formerly known as a somatoform disorder) is a mental disorder characterized by symptoms that suggest physical illness or injury.People with this disorder often become worried about their health because doctors are unable to find a cause for their symptoms.
Normally, the symptoms begin to appear at a young age, and patients are diagnosed before the age of 30 years.
Symptoms may occur across cultures and gender.
Other common symptoms include anxiety and depression.
There is no cure for this disorder. The goal of treatment is to help you learn to control your symptoms. See your doctor often to review your symptoms and how you're coping with them.
