Hi I'm new to the site. I have had somatisation disorder for about 18years. (pain , muscle weakness, loss of strength, tiredness..al caused by childhood trauma) It's been a struggle to get acknowldegement of symptoms and a sort of diagnosis. This is after numerous visists to nerologists and muscle specialists. And of course Maudsley now. I'm in a great deal of pysical pain and it isnt helped by there not being any society or fellow suffers to talk to.

Hi Fiona and welcome to the forum. Somatization Disorder is in the same classification as Conversion Disorder and there is a newly opened Conversion Disorder section here on the forum. Although not identical I'm sure you'd find identification and support there. :)

Many thanks I had no idea that it had a similar classification
