Hi has anyone have Somatization Disorder

(2 Posts)

Just that really, I have had lots of test lately and just filled in a survey given to me by the Doctor who thought I was depressed but it said I have Somatization Disorder, I have to go to the doctors tomorrow and then make an appointment with the counsellor and then see the doctor again after I have had a few counselling sessions.

If you have this disorder do you tell other people? I know I should probably wait to the the counsellor but having gooogled it it does make a huge a mount of sense to me.

Hi goodie

Is it the same Non epileptic attack disorder? I've just been googling as I think my dd may have this. She has depression, self harms and also has a diagnosis of bpd (borderline personality disorder). Just recently she has started having collapsing, fainting episodes and she says she feels like she is having an out of body experience. Think it might be the same thing?? not sure tho. What sort of tests did you have?

Thanks
