Actually, this is not how Medical Sociology uses the term illness. It distinguishes three terms:
Disease : pathological, biological definition, diagnosis used by doctors.
Illness: subjective and personal experience of symptoms and ill-health.
Sickness: societal role and perception of the condition (i.e. stigma, legal arrangements (days off work), etc.
