In brief: Functional DO's

Functional does not mean "it's all in your head".
It simply means lack of organic etiology to explain symptoms.

In brief: No

Functional disorders are a multifactorial consequence of hormonal, immune system and nervous system dysfunction resulting from genetic predispositions and dietary and environmental insults.
There are no pathological markers of a functional disorder because there is no true pathology, only dysfunction. A metabolically directed approach to these problems may be beneficial. Check out mdwellnessmd.Com.
