    Interesting, but I would have voted for an 'other' option being included as well.

    It is difficult to know where to stop with such a list, for example food intolerances are also a frequent co-occurance, though perhaps difficult because they are often not formally diagnosed. An 'other' might give an idea of the size of what is being missed.

    In an ideal world co morbidities would be investigated,however getting a referral to facilitate a diagnosis would be a result in itself for some.
