Somatic symptom disorder is a condition that can greatly affect an individual. People who have somatic symptom disorder are constantly preoccupied with thoughts and worries about their health. While people with this condition often have a lot of pain from another illness or condition, the excessive thoughts, feelings or behaviors about potential illness and normal physical sensations can be disabling. If you or a loved one have somatic symptom disorder, you are not alone. Taking a self-assessment quiz can help you determine if you or a loved one experience this disorder.
Assessing Your Risk of Somatic Symptom Disorder
Do you think you or a loved one could have somatic symptom disorder? You can take a self-assessment to begin to get answers. A quiz is not an official diagnosis because only a medical professional can diagnose somatic symptom disorder. An assessment may help you evaluate different symptoms to learn if and how you seek treatment.
