A good friend of mine, a retired Doctor, told me about this one. A very useful condition to know about!
To first define syndrome..
Syndrome -A group of symptoms that collectively indicate or characterize a disease, psychological disorder, or other abnormal condition.
Apparently this syndrome was discovered in Germany by and English Doctor. It is characterized by lots of separate and apparently unconnected symptoms. We see it all the time with the patients who tell us it hurts "everywhere, all the time" or who tell you about their primary symptom only after cataloguing every minor ache, twinge, bruise, fungal nail etc before getting to the point.
It is so called because of the German patients who present with it. When asked where it hurt they said:-
"it hurt here. Unt heir, Untheir
, unt under there, Untheir
