Physicians and a common problem named "somatization"
غلامحسين احمدزاده, آزاده ملكيان, محسن معروفي
Abstract:   (921 Views)
A significant proportion of the patients referred to health services are people who have some psychosocial problems. Many of these patients can not explain their problem obviously and prefer to express them as nonspecific somatic and bodily symptoms; although there are no definite clinical and laboratory findings about any specific medical disease. This phenomenon named "somatization". Recurrent visits of these cases in outpatient clinics or hospitals and the vicious cycle of unnecessary investigations that reinforce "sick role" and somatic complaints, cause many problems for the patients, as well as the physicians and health services. 
Keywords: somatization, medically unexplained symptoms, somatoform disorders.
