Those who suffer from somatization have psychological concerns that have developed into physical symptoms, even though there is no underlying physical cause. Somatic symptoms, which include pain or nausea, do exist and are not dreamt up by those experiencing them. Several people who experience somatization typically seek out help from a medical doctor at first, regarding the undesirable physical symptoms. When the medical doctor cancels out any underlying causes of a patient's physical symptoms, they might refer the individual to a somatization therapist. An experienced professional is better able to address and treat these underlying psychological issues, thus minimizing or completely alleviating any unfavorable physical symptoms. Therapists assist clients as they attempt to develop coping skills that empower them to deal with both physical and psychological pain in a healthy way.
