    The following studies suggest that symptoms of chronic physical illness can be mistaken for mental illness. What stood out for me is the elevated scores on the scales of depression, hysteria, and hypochondriasis.

    The psychosocial impact of systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis
    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/art.1780270102/abstract

    Elevated MMPI scores for hypochondriasis, depression, and hysteria in patients with rheumatoid arthritis reflect disease rather than psychological status
    http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/art.1780291206/abstract

    The validity of the MMPI with multiple sclerosis patients
