The Psychopathology of Functional Somatic Syndromes

The Psychopathology of Functional Somatic Syndromes examines the link between mental illness and physical syndromes that lack organic disease explanations, including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, premenstrual dysphoria, irritable bowel, and Gulf War illness. The book examines the best research work of the past 20 years to determine the association between psychopathology and functional illness, the biological gradient between somatic and psychological symptoms, and the manifestations of dysfunctional coping. It challenges recent conceptualizations of functional somatic syndromes as mental disorders connected to affective spectrum disorder, chronic somatizing, serotonin deficiency, physical inactivity, and/or abnormal illness behavior.
