abstract = "Objective: Functional somatic syndromes (FSS), defined as physical syndromes without known underlying organic pathology, are sometimes regarded as less serious conditions than well-defined medical diseases (MD). The aims of this study were to evaluate functional limitations in FSS, and to compare the results to MD patients with the same core symptoms.Methods: This study was performed in 89,585 participants (age: 44.4 +/- 12.4 years, 58.5{\%} female) of the general-population cohort LifeLines. Quality of Life (QoL) and work participation were examined as indicators of functional limitations. QoL was assessed with two summary scales of the RAND-36: the physical component summary (PCS) and the mental component summary (MCS). Work participation was assessed with a self-reported questionnaire. QoL and work participation were compared between FSS and MD patients, using CM-squared tests and ANCOVA-analyses, adjusted for age, sex, educational level, and mental disorders.Results: Of the participants, 11.0{\%} (n=9861) reported a FSS, and 2.7{\%} (n=2395) reported a MD. Total QoL, PCS and MCS were significantly lower in all separate FSS and MD compared to controls (PConclusion: Functional limitations in FSS patients are common, and as severe as those in patients with MD when looking at QoL and work participation, emphasizing that FSS are serious health conditions.
