Physical Disorders are mental disorders that are characterized by physical symptoms for which the existence of organic pathology cannot be demonstrated and which often appear to be associated with psychological factors or conflicts. Despite repeated assurances from doctors of different specialties that they have nothing, these patients remain convinced that their physical symptoms and pain are real and not in their imagination. These disorders are manifested by various symptoms such as:
- Gastrointestinal symptoms
- Symptoms of pain
- Cardiopulmonary symptoms
- Conversion or pseudo-neurological symptoms
- Sexual symptoms for most of a person’s life
The experienced medical staff of our clinic ensures the creation of a good and stable relationship with the patients and helps them to face the fact that their problems have no organic basis and dare to endure the symptoms, which in themselves are harmless.
