Medically Unexplained Symptoms (MUS)

These types of symptoms are sometimes known as “medically unexplained symptoms”,
doctors are unable to diagnose a problem within the body.
This doesn’t mean the symptoms are fake or “all in the head” – they’re real and can affect your ability to function properly.

Not understanding the cause can make them even more distressing and difficult to cope with.

Diagnoses for certain patterns of medically unexplained symptoms include:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome – troubling stomach symptoms
  • Fibromyalgia – widespread bodily pain and tenderness
  • Non-epileptic attack disorder – in epilepsy, fits are caused by problems with the electrical activity of the brain. In non-epileptic attack disorder, someone has fits that look like epileptic fits, but the electrical activity of the brain is normal.
