Yes It Is!
“Psyche” means “Mind”, “Soma” means “Body”, and Yes Psychosomatic is something related with one’s mind and body. More problems in your mind will cause a pain in your body. With more depression and stress deep inside your mind generates a pain in the weakest spot of your body.
Even after various consultations and numerous tests there will not be any reason or medical cause for that pain. This will be a sharp lasting pain, but we cannot understand the root cause. Many should have experienced this in their life.
I have also experienced it. I had a sharp pain in the back of my shoulder for the past 6 years. Furthermore, I did many tests and consulted even with specialized doctors, all their answers were the same “You are completely normal”. This pain started protruding more after my father’s death. As you all know that losing your loved one will make you go insane and that’s the time when you need to fight with the highest amount of stress and depression.
Other symptoms of psychosomatic illness – Weakness, shortness of breath, pain, sleeping difficulties, tense muscles, High blood pressure, ulcers, acidity, skin problems and even heart disease in serious cases.

You can collate your body to pressure cooker. Just like the pressure inside the cooker rises and vents out steam in the weakest spot, the excessive thinking in your mind rises the pressure in your body, finally releasing the pressure as pain in the weakest spot of your body.

Similarly, you will have back pain, leg pain, headaches and the list goes on.
