ABSTRACT
Objectives:
The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between fatigue degree and Comprehensive diagnosis of Qui Xui Shui in patients with functional dyspepsia. There again, we investigated an association between scores obtained from Comprehensive diagnosis of Qui Xui Shui and state of skin sympathetic tone or cardiovascular reactivity.

Methods:
Subjects were 56 patients with Functional dyspepsia and 8 healthy people. Fatigue degree was assessed by questionnaires consisting of subjective complaints of fatigue. Comprehensive diagnosis of Qui Xue Shui was investigated by questionnaire and physical examination, total score and composition score were calculated from the symptom score. Skin sympathetic tone was measured by Ryodoraku Score(RS) and Cardiovascular Reactivity(CV Reactivity) was checked by Pulse diagnostic apparatus. All patients were divided into two groups by RS 40㎂(below and above) or by CV Reactivity(decreased and increased or not decreased).

Results:
There was highly significant correlation between Fatigue Degree and total score and each composition score of Comprehensive diagnosis of Qui Xui Shui. And total score of patients was significantly higher than that of health controls; in the patients, females than males. Significance related with the level of RS 40㎂or the state of CV Reactivity were not remarkable in both patients and health control group.

Conclusions:
Fatigue degree seems to have a special feature reflecting the state of Comprehensive Diagnosis of Qui Xui Shui in patients with functional dyspepsia.
Key words: functional dyspepsia, fatigue, comprehensive diagnosis of Qui Xue Shui, Ryodoraku, pulse diagnostic apparatus
