 Symptoms deep dive, Part 1: The autonomic computing symptoms format
The symptom definition expresses the conditions used by the monitor component to recognize the existence of a symptom, and the symptom description specifies the unique characteristics of a particular symptom that is recognized.
Most of the time, symptoms are closely connected to the self-healing discipline of autonomic computing because their primary intent is to indicate a problem, which is in the realm of the self-healing discipline.
Symptom definitions must be compatible with their respective correlation engines implemented by the autonomic manager that processes the symptom definition.

 Symptoms deep dive, Part 3: Classify your symptoms
To identify symptoms, a standard symptom taxonomy is an excellent starting point -- although it is not the only tool you need for this task -- because it provides a common framework with which symptoms authors can expand and promote the reuse of their individual symptoms in a more standardized way.
Symptom metadata is common information present in all kinds of management knowledge; because a symptom is one of the types of knowledge supported by an autonomic manager, it must contain knowledge metadata.
As such, one valid way to categorize symptoms would be with respect to the sources of composed information that are part of the symptom, but because the symptom instance already carries the correlation trail of a symptom (pointers to the components of the symptom), this categorization alternative is unnecessary.

If one is studying a population with a particular symptom, one could insert the particular symptom being studied (pain, dizziness, fatigue) for the word "symptoms".

 Uhthoff's symptom - multiple sclerosis encyclopaedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Uhthoff's symptom is a condition most commonly observed multiple sclerosis and particularly in Optic Neuritis where small increases in body temperature (hyperthermia) caused by exercise, hot baths or showers or otherwise, cause a worsening of symptoms.
The Uhthoff induced symptoms tend to go away as the body returns to its correct temperature after anything from several minutes to a few hours has passed.
One explanation of Uhthoff's symptom is that hyperthermia induces a heat-linked neuro-blockade of partially demyelinated axons.

 Chapter 16: Somatization and Symptoms Evaluation: Measuring Somatization
Finally, the PHQ-15, or other multi-symptom measures such as the symptom subscale of the SCL-90 or Portenoy's multidimensional symptom scale, may be used as secondary measures in studies where a validated generic instrument to assess somatic symptom burden is desired.
When one is unable to identify psychological factors and link them as probable causative or contributory factors to the physical symptoms, it is more appropriate to consider the symptoms as idiopathic rather than diagnose the patient with a somatoform disorder.
Even when psychological factors are responsible for somatic symptoms, other mental disorders such as depression and anxiety are often the etiology rather than a primary somatoform disorder.
