Dear Anon

Thanks for your question. Empowher describes people who deal with Somatoform Disorder by stating that "Individuals with somatization disorder claim to suffer constantly and for many years from many physical illnesses, yet they do not have any specific, diagnosed medical illnesses that can explain their symptoms. Still, these symptoms cause distress and negatively affect the individual's ability to function day-to-day."

Can you explain your question a bit more to us? When you say media portrayal of this condition, do you mean how it's played out in movies, TV and books, etc? Are you talking about fictional works or from a documentary or news reporting viewpoint?
