Somatoform disorders (SD) are conditions characterized by physical symptoms that are not caused by a physical problem but are rather due to a psychological disorder like depression, anxiety or psychotic disorders. Some SDs like Maunchhausen syndrome are self-inflicted or inflicted on close family relatives in a desperate attempt for attention. Others include conversion disorder in which people will experience neurologic (brain-related) symptoms like pain, blindness, paralysis, etc. that is without a physical cause. These conditions are not self-inflicted, although they are sometimes misdiagnosed as being self-inflicted.
