Psychosomatic Disorder - Deepstash

Psychosomatic Disorder

  • A psychosomatic disorder is a condition where observed physical symptoms don’t have medical explanations.
  • These symptoms are instead attributed to psychological things (e.g., stress, emotions, and personality).
  • Many times, we just haven't found medical explanations for them yet.
  • However, because we are beginning to find a medical explanation for why anorexia develops (particularly genetics and neurochemical dysfunction), we can't call it a purely psychosomatic condition.
