But I agree that it's popular now to label every little commplaint or eccentric behavior with a "syndrome" tag.
That and I think we expect to be 100% happy, 100% healthy, and 100% pain free all of the time without having to work for it. We, as a society, now want a magic fix to all our ills and it just isn't realistic. We don't deal well with discomfort. What a bunch of whiners us humans are.
