Have your heard these words - it's all in your head? If you have fibromyalgia, I'm positive you've heard it. Other terms used are functional and somatization, perhaps conversion disorder. The dictionary defines somatization as; conversion of a mental state (such as depression or anxiety) into physical symptoms the existence of physical bodily complaints in the absence of a known medical condition How do you respond? What goes on inside when you hear these words? How are you dealt with? Respectfully? Compassionately? Harshly? Treated like less than human? Made fun of? Has anyone been offered any treatment? If so, what and did it work?
