Somatization

Physical symptoms, expressions or manifestations of distress that stem primarily from or are exacerbated by psychological pain versus a primary medical ailment or condition. A prominent facet of complex trauma adaptation for many people. A core domain of DESNOS and the original conceptualization of C-PTSD. Somatization has been omitted in the reconfiguration of C-PTSD slated for inclusion in ICD-11. Somatic dysregulation remains a prominent symptom of the proposed DTD diagnosis.
