Somatisation Disorder – is it all in our heads?

The Draft Clinical Guidelines for Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have been severely criticised for failure to recognise a severe form of the disease, preferring a psychiatric diagnosis of somatisation disorder. What do psychiatrists mean by that? is an article by AJ Barsky and MD Borus published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, titled “Functional Somatic Syndromes.” is a reply to Barsky’s article by Ellen Gouldsmit. is the Medical Journal of Australia where you can read the Draft Guidelines.
