Yes, you read it right. The symptoms of psychosomatic disorders flit from one body part to another, and just too easily and quickly ( they love to travel a lot ;p ) . Just as one symptom is discovered, it disappears and another one emerges in some other part of the body.
The psychosomatic symptoms have been linked to a chameleon. Every time a medicine tries to pin them down, they become something different.

The colours of a chameleon are not more numerous and inconstant than the varieties of the hypochondriac and hysteric disease.
