Essential information for patient and family
- Recurrent unexplained physical symptoms (eg headaches, abdominal pains and fatigue) are very frequent in children and adolescents (about 10% in the general population). Severely incapacitating problems are far less common.
- Few children develop explanatory physical illness at a later stage
- Encouraging maintenance of or gradual resumption of normal activities is helpful
