SOMATIC SYMPTOM AND RELATED DISORDERS
Persons suffering from these disorders have one or more physical symptoms that become all-consuming or lead to significant impairment in their everyday functioning. Their lives are overwhelmed by their somatic concerns. This can include persons with established medical diagnoses who are disproportionately troubled by or preoccupied with their physical symptoms.
These conditions include somatic symptom disorder, illness anxiety disorder and functional neurological symptom disorder.
