Doctors can’t see it

One reason anxiety can be overlooked in the medical community, says Munson, is that when it presents as a somatic disorder, a patient still looks good “on paper” per se, so doctors may not know what to do about it or be able to take your concerns seriously.

“Unfortunately, what happens is that you can go to a doctor or go to a healthcare provider, and all your labs would be normal, and they won’t be able to find a real diagnosis. But the issue is somatic.,” she says. “Your body has become so overwhelmed that it’s presenting as a health diagnosis.”
