In brief: Build a history

Medical case literature provides compelling documentation of patients who have intentionally exaggerated, feigned, simulated, aggravated, or self-induced an illness or injury for the primary purpose of assuming the sick role.
This is not hypochondria or imagining illness - it is faking with intent, even self-inflicted harm.
