    I've spent way too much time trying to find this code, so now I need help...

    What code are you using for Dysphoria?

    Thanks!!

    My understanding is that dysphoria can be a symptom of other more major disorders, i.e. bipolar, affective mood disorders, autism, dementia, etc..... If this is a symptom of one of these, you should code the primary condition first. Otherwise, 780.97 is a great option. The only other I see is V40.9.
