Somatoform disorder: Type of mental illness which causes one and many bodily symptoms, including the pain despite lack of medical evidence.
- Specific sensations, such as pain or shortness of breath, or more general symptoms, such as fatigue or weakness
- Cancer or heart disease, but more significant than what's usually expected
- headaches, movement disorders, weakness, dizziness, fainting.
Causes: The exact cause of somatic symptom disorder isn't clear, but any of these factors may play a role:
Genetic and biological factors, such as increased sensitivity to pain
Family influence, which may be genetic or environmental.
Personality trait of negativity, which can impact how you identify and perceive illness and bodily symptoms.
Decreased awareness of or problems processing emotions, causing physical symptoms to become the focus rather than the emotional issues.
Learned behaviour — for example, the attention or other benefits gained from having an illness; or "pain behaviours" in response to symptoms, such as excessive avoidance of activity, which can increase your level of disability.
Phobic disorder: A phobia is an excessive and irrational fear reaction.
Dissociative disorder: Dissociative disorders are mental disorders that involve experiencing a disconnection and lack of continuity between thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions and identity.
Pain disorder: Pain disorder is chronic pain experienced by a patient in one or more areas, and is thought to be caused by psychological stress
