So, sometimes--read "usually"--it's really really hard for me to convince myself that the physical pain I feel is related to emotional dissonance...as I have been told by medical doctors. There are many days when I feel like it is impossible.

However, I have been reading about somatic disorder--a psychological disorder related closely to anxiety--and one thing that is interesting about it is that it necessitates having many multiple symptoms. Until the recent DSM 5 change, in order to be classified as somatic one must have many symptoms from multiple different categories. Now, the disorder is categorically broader, but the gist is still the same. Maybe reading about this might help some people? Sometimes it helps me to think about this...
