Functional disorders have no clear physiological cause. They are complex in that they have no pathophysiological basis, but yet are not simply a manifestation of a psychological disorder. Functional disorders generally cannot be diagnosed in a traditional way using tools such as x-rays or blood tests. However, research into functional disorders is improving with the recent introduction of brain imaging studies (PET, fMRI) to determine central nervous system contribution and the use of molecular investigation of brain-gut peptides, which provide insight into how symptoms become manifest in functional gastrointestinal disorders.
The list of functional disorders is varied and long as symptoms can affect several body systems at once and often are characterized by a combination of symptoms that may be changeable in nature. Functional disorders may include gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a sleep disorder, complaints of stress, fatigue and anxiety, non-cardiac chest pain or heart palpitations, fibromyalgia, genitourinary disorders, non-specific joint or bodily discomfort, and so on.
