Somatisation is a fear that something serious is physically wrong with you when it isn't or it isn't as serious. 

Have you known anyone who somatisizes? Or do you feel you personally ever get caught up in somatisation? This can happen especially if someone is emotionally overwhelmed and puts their energy into their physical experience instead of their emotional experience. 

If you've known someone in your life who has done this, how do you talk to them about it or do you not engage with them? And/or personally? Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

I have hypochondriac tendencies (by psychological terms; not by the common misinterpretation), but I'm not sure if that constitutes as the "same thing".

My sister's the worst with this. She's always about to yack or has some intense headache. Compared to how often she says that she's going to throw up, she does it rarely.

I had severe arm pain for no reason and seriously thought it was going to have to get cut off for a week. Turns out I strained it in my sleep.

Yes I have a friend who suffers from severe anxiety and that plays a big part. Normally she is ok if there is someone there with her and is given lots of reassurence.
