Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is a medical condition that affects the functioning of the nervous system. It is a condition in which patients experience physical symptoms that cannot be explained by a neurological disease or structural abnormality.
FND is also known as Conversion Disorder, and it is considered a type of somatic symptom disorder, which means that it is characterized by physical symptoms that are not related to any underlying medical condition.
The symptoms of FND can vary widely and may affect different parts of the body, including the muscles, limbs, and sensory organs. Some of the common symptoms of FND include weakness, tremors, seizures, sensory disturbances, and difficulty walking or moving.
