Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello, I am Rafael. Thanks for asking your question - I'm here to support you. (Information posted here is not private or confidential but public).
I am sorry to know about this physical pain you have been experiencing. The first step to take whenever we experience pain that remains, is to make sure there is no medical problem associated to it, and for that we need to consult with our primary care physicians for a direct evaluation. Now, responding your question, many mental health conditions could cause physical pain, from stress to depression and anxiety. Body, mind and emotions are all interconnected thus whatever impac
ts our psycho-emotional experiences, does also affect our physical bodies.
Some people who happen to be more sensitive could "somatize", or express in their bodies, emotional and mental states, and for this the person does not need to be aware of how this happens, in fact most times this
occurs from an unconscious levels, our bodies just react to our experiences through physical - physiological symptoms, including pain.
Does it make sense?
Could you tell me more about your feelings and thought
s about it?
