pain disorder and personality change due to TBI icd 10 (Cali

What is the proper code for pain disorder associated with a general medical condition and psychological factors.

What is the code for a personality change, ie decreased frustration tolerance with increased irritability secondary to TBI but no measurable neurocognitive deficit. I did not conduct neuropsych eval.It was done by AME. But there is irritability that presents problems socially and interacting in a work like setting.

1. Somatic Symptom Disorder, With Predominant Pain (F45.1); Specify if Persistent, Specify current severity: Mild, Moderate, Severe
2. Major Neurocognitive Disorder Due to TBI
With Behavioral Disturbance (F02.81)
Without Behavioral Disturbance (F02.80)
There is also: Mild Neurocognitive D/O Due to TBI (G31.84)
See DSM-5 Textbook pages 624-627 for the TBI DX, it can be complicated (and I emphasize that I am NOT a neuropsych). ;)
