In general, when the complaints of pain are minor or constricted to one area of the body, a diagnosis of undifferentiated somatoform disorder is given. The symptoms of this somatoform disorder center around a pain that has no medical cause and is entirely psychological in nature. Even though the imagined pain persists in a single area of the body, there are still many serious complications that can arise as a result of this disorder.
When a person complains persistently about pain from a single source on their body but there is no known medical cause for the pain after numerous tests, it is a good sign that undifferentiated somatoform disorder is a problem. The exact location and severity of the pain are going to vary from person to person, but it will always result in negative tests when doctors try to find the source of the pain. Once the symptoms of this disorder appear, there are dangers of letting it go untreated.
Many people will be unable to function in their day to day life sometimes because the pain becomes so unbearable for them. This can lead to problems with relationships, work, and other responsibilities and social aspects of life. In addition to these dangers, there are chances that a person may suffer from depression when doctors are unable to diagnose the source of their pain and they disregard suggestions that the problem may be psychological in nature.
