BODY MEMORIES

These maladies are often called “psychosomatic symptoms” which does not, as many people think, mean that it is “in your head.” Rather, it means that the symptoms are due to the connection between the mind and the body.

Physical problems that can come of these somatic memories include headaches, migraines, stomach difficulties, light headedness/dizziness, hot/cold flashes, grinding of teeth, sleep disorders, etc.

These maladies can often be frustrating for the survivor of a sexual assault who is experiencing them as they are difficult to diagnose and cure and may add to the difficult experience of recovery.
