What are Medically Unexplained Symptoms - MUS?

In most of the examinations carried out at General Medicine outpatient clinics, physicians focus their attention on overt clinical data, characterized by clearly recognizable symptoms. Other symptoms, which could be defined as vague, such as chronic fatigue, sleep or appetite disorders, irritable bowel or constipation, tone or mood disorders, non-specific pain syndromes etc., are sometimes underestimated. These signs remain largely unexplained, i.e. they are not traced back to a precise cause, disease or disorder. In Anglo-Saxon literature they are identified as “MUS”, Medically Unexplained Symptoms.
