Unexplained pain disorder
Somatic symptom disorders involve having significant focus on physical symptoms, such as pain, weakness or shortness of breath, that results in major distress and/or problems functioning.
These individuals have excessive thoughts, feelings and behaviors relating to the physical symptoms that may or may not be associated with a diagnosed medical condition, and are not „faking“ the illness.
An individual isn't diagnosed with somatic symptom disorder only because a medical explanation for a physical symptom can't be found. The focus is on how excessive or out of proportion their emotions, feelings, and actions linked to the disease are.
