Key Features:

The enigma of medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) in medical practice makes them a challenge to treat. This book deals with such conditions, which are common but often unexplained leading to significant burden to the sufferers and also health resources. This book compiles the experiences of professionals who have been dealing with MUS over many years. It is a simple guide in under-standing and managing MUS and chronic pain. It may not take away the challenges of the professionals dealing with them but would be a step towards dealing with MUS.
