Abstract

Functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGDs) have been related with different psychological
conditions. On the contrary the role of psychological factors within gastrointestinal motor disorders
(GMDs) remains unclear. The objective of this study was to explore the differences and congruence
with clinical performance of the psychological profile and subjective functionality among patients
diagnosed with FGDs and GMDs. Using a double-blind design, fifty-six inpatients from a
Gastroenterology Department were included in the study. No major differences were detected
between the two groups. However, clinical performance was coherent with subjective physical
functioning only among GMDs. These results may provide useful information for gastroenterologists
dealing with patients’ complaints not consistent with their clinical profile.
