I think focusing on the possibility of sexual abuse can bring on anxiety that can create symptoms. I had a therapist declare that I had been sexually abused based on very little evidence in my attitudes and experiences. Because I had no memory of abuse, or any other evidence, another therapist told me I must have been abused when I was pre-verbal. I actually had a lot of strange pains and experiences while there was all that focus on it.

Eventually I came to the conclusion that the closest thing to abuse in my history was picking up some anxiety from my mother, who got some unwanted attention from her father as an adolescent. Once I quit searching for clues about it, a lot of the 'symptoms' vanished. It left me with some lingering anger toward therapists who are quick to encourage clients to believe they were abused despite no memory or other evidence.
