At least in the majority of cases, no convincing, enduring pathology has been demonstrated using current medical technology. Important psychosocial determinants are present in cultures which provide “overwhelming information” regarding the potential for chronic pain following whiplash injury, medical systems which encourage inactivity and caution, and litigation processes which involve protracted battles with insurance companies. Patients are led to expect, amplify and attribute symptoms in a chronic fashion. Four-dimensional symptom questionnaire (4DSQ) The 4DSQ is a recent self-report questionnaire (Terluin et al, 2006) which measures “distress, depression, anxiety and somatization”. Few other instruments attempt to quantify somatization. This questionnaire is available free of charge for non- commercial use (EMGO, 2000). The Somatic Symptoms and Related Disorders all have elements of somatization and currently emerge in a cultural setting in which medicalization is a prominent feature. Evidence indicates that cognitive processes are etiologically important. Many of these disorders are associated with information processing deficits. In Somatic symptom disorder – with predominant pain, learning is an etiological mechanism, as demonstrated by the importance of secondary gains and the influence of social models. Fear of pain and movement may be important in the maintenance of some chronic pain. Evidence of the importance of cognition in somatisation continues to grow. Attributional theory advances the reasonable proposition that ambiguous symptoms will be interpreted in accordance with personal beliefs and experience. Medical anthropology emphasizes the importance of the beliefs of the individual and the culture. AIB forms an alternative envelope for these DSM-5 disorders. It is probable that somatization syndromes arise where there is an unmet need for closeness with others (Landa et al, 2012). The evidence for information-processing deficits of those presenting with somatization suggests that information should be presented in an understandable form and repeated frequently. Present at all times as caring, confident, firm and approachable (within agreed limits). After appropriate investigation, inform the patient that no further investigations are indicated, at this time. Investigations are expensive, and when somatization is present, they are unhelpful. If one investigates a somatically healthy individual long enough minor “abnormalities” will eventually be detected, which are not clinically significant, and which are confusing to the clinician and the patient. Also, if one investigates any patient long enough, eventually something will go wrong, a puncture site will become infected, the patient will fall off the X-ray table, a nurse will trip over a lead, there will be an anaphylactic response. Limit the number of number of invasive treatments (for similar reasons to 4). This is the only way to limit the investigations and invasive treatments, and number of explanations provided. Continue to be involved on condition that the patient does not go outside the agreed team. Point out that you are prepared to help, but that this is only possible if meetings are regularized. Negotiate a sensible protocol to be followed in the case of crises. Attention may be according to a time schedule, but should not be contingent on the patient hiding concerns and distress. Benzodiazepines, stimulants and analgesics should be strenuously limited. These patients do experience distress and the use of antidepressants and mood stabilizers have a role. Antipsychotic medication has a place in highly aroused individuals or where psychosis is observed or suspected. Diagnose and adequately treat comorbid psychiatric disorders. Personality disorder will make management more difficult.
