Constitutional symptoms refers to a group of symptoms that can affect many different systems of the body.

Examples include weight loss, fevers, fevers of unknown origin, hyperhidrosis, generalized hyperhidrosis, chronic pain, fatigue, dyspnea, and malaise.[1]

Other examples include chills, night sweats, and decreased appetite.[2]

Generally, they are very nonspecific, with a vast number of diseases and conditions as potential cause, thereby requiring further evaluation for any diagnosis.
