https://www.theguardian.com/society...sufferers-were-wrongly-diagnosed-says-charity It is an actual, current and effective, belief in many corners of medicine that presenting with a large number of symptoms is itself undeniable evidence of psychogenic disorder. This is the natural, guaranteed, outcome of this belief system. All too familiar: Psychogenic-obsessed medical guidelines create this outcome, guarantee this outcome: It's way past time to seriously look into the harmful impacts of the various psychosomatic beliefs used in medicine and how they create those negative outcomes. The mantra in the various psychosomatic models, whether BPS, MUS, FND or any other similar nonsense, is that there are no negative impacts whatsoever and therefore zero risks. This is obviously not only wrong but immoral. The issue is always brushed aside, no one ever wants to look because it will reveal just how massively misguided this hysteria-of-the-gaps ideology has been, amounting to tens of millions of people whose health care was inappropriate because of those irrational beliefs. Diagnosis remains by far the hardest part of medicine. This idea that diagnosis can safely be done with zero effort and based entirely on beliefs about psychology is an enormous and ongoing failure.
