2. Causes

There is a lot that we don’t know about somatization disorder. We do know, however, that the condition will often be passed down in families to younger generations. The symptoms can also have a tendency to come and go for no apparent reason.

It is thought that, in some cases, the condition might be down to problems with how nerve impulses send information from the body to the brain. This can result in the patient experiencing pain and other sensations like pressure, heat, and cold. A lot more research needs to be done to help us understand the condition and, hopefully, to be able to treat it.
