You have various pain complaints in your body. The specialists have been able to find little or insufficient indications for the cause of this. As a result of the pain, it is often impossible to function normally at school or work. Not everyone understands you, because from the outside there is little to see.
If the above has applied to you for some time, you most likely have a pain disorder. The physical pain then has a psychological cause.
No physical cause can be found on medical examination. The complaints can occur in all parts of the body, in the muscles but also in the bones. Many people have difficulty with the fact that there is no explanation for the severe pain. It is then very difficult to accept that the cause can also be psychological. The characteristics of a pain disorder are:
- pain in multiple parts of the body;
- pain is so severe that you seek medical attention;
- psychological factors influence the severity and duration of the pain;
- the pain has no physical cause.
