ROME II Diagnostic Criteria for Functional Abdominal Pain

The diagnosis of Functional Abdominal Pain always presumes the absence of a structural or biochemical explanation for the symptoms.

D1. Functional Abdominal Pain Syndrome

At least 6 months of:

  1. Continuous or nearly continuous abdominal pain; and

  2. No or only occasional relationship of pain with physiological events (e.g., eating, defecation, or menses); and

  3. Some loss of daily functioning; and

  4. The pain is not feigned (e.g., malingering), and

  5. Insufficient criteria for other functional gastrointestinal disorders that would explain the abdominal pain.

D2. Unspecified Functional Abdominal Pain

This is functional abdominal pain that fails to reach criteria for functional abdominal pain syndrome.
