Somatoform disorders mnemonic

Hey everyone!
We'll be learning some psychiatry and some random memory aids I made today =P
Somatoform disorders mnemonic
To avoid confusion with factitious disorder or malingering, remember that somatoform disorders unconsciously produce symptoms with no conscious intention.

Conversion disorder.. Emotional stress is converted into physical symptoms.
Conversion! Simple to remember!

Hypochondriasis mnemonic is silly but it's the only way I remember that patient thinks that a "con" disease is hiding in that normal hypoChONdriac word xP

The dude with the somatoform pain disorder is lying down representing that his pain has disrupted his day to day life.

That's all!
