reasons for psychosomatic disorders
often children complain of abdominal pain, sometimes refuse to eat and in general are some gloomy.The reason for such complaints can be set.But one deserves special attention.A child falls in everyday life in different situations and naturally can not respond to them.
Neuropsychiatric reactions to what is happening sometimes cause symptoms that mimic a variety of diseases.Similar disorder called psychosomatic .baby predisposition to them is different emotion.His complaints are varied: yesterday sick tummy, today stabbed heart.These children are very vulnerable and easily upset by the most insignificant occasion.They quickly tired, shy and very suggestible.

Psychologists have noticed that some children resort to this trick, when they want to attract attention.Sometimes the repeated complaints of abdominal pain forced the parents show the kid a gastroenterologist.In favor of the fact that such pain is not associated with disease of the gastrointestinal tract are the facts:
- short episodes of complaints, and the intervals between them are from 2-3 weeks to several months;
- pain is not related to eating (often for diseases of the stomach and intestines, it appears before a meal or shortly thereafter);
- sensation of pain often coincides with the experiences or unpleasant situations;
- pain does not occur at night.
