“Hello I have been diagnosed with Somatic Symptom Disorder ( unexplained Pains with no medical findings ) I am convinced they have missed something on my 10 tests and scans. This has been going on for 2 1/2 years and I have got to the point I cannot take much more it has destroy me. I have tried 9 different anti-depressants none of which has worked this time. Normally 20mg of citalapram and I am back on track. I have now got to try Venafloxine 37.5 mg from today. I would welcome any comments or any similar disorder. Thank you. this is my last hope to rid me of these 'Pains' that are supposedly 'in my head'”
