Somatisation Disorder presents as myriad bodily symptoms, for which repeated clinical examination and detailed investigation reveals no organic basis. Patients seek various doctors and are unconvinced by explanations of lack of major physical illness. It can be conceptualised as a condition where psychological distress is communicated through physical symptoms. Loss of trained manpower can be averted through greater awareness among doctors about this condition.
