Somatization Disorder Definition

Definition

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.

If you suspect you have this condition, contact your doctor for further evaluation.
