A 45-year-old female asked:
Is chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction a disease? My GI diagnosed it but primary doc and gyno say they do not understand why 'disease' is used.

Or a disorder: When a person has a symptom, doctors look for the cause of the symptom. If a cause is found, then the cause is called the disorder or disease. If no cause is found, then the symptom itself can be called a disorder or disease. It's just how people use words.
