There are many causes of functional neurological disorder

The exact cause of functional neurological disorder is not yet known, though it is believed to be due to a complex interaction of environmental, physical, and psychological factors. Research suggests that certain life events such as stressful experiences may trigger the development of an functional neurological disorder. Additionally, sleep deprivation or other disruptions in the body’s regular activities like exercise or diet may also contribute to its development. Finally, research shows that individuals with FND often have an existing neurological condition or other health problem likely adding complexity to diagnosis and treatment.

What is functional neurological disorder?

Functional neurological disorder (FND) is a type of neurological condition characterized by symptoms that involve the nervous system, such as movement disorders and changes in sensation, but with no obvious anatomical cause. It is also known as conversion disorder or functional movement disorder, and is believed to result from a combination of psychological and somatic factors. Symptoms can be similar to those seen in true neurological disorders yet can still lack an identifiable structural pathology.

What are the symptoms of functional neurological disorder?

Functional neurological disorder can present differently in individuals with similar presenting symptoms including changes in movement, such as tremor or dystonia. Other common symptoms may include altered sensation, vertigo, seizures and memory problems. People often report and experience changes in physical abilities such as an impairment of balance or the ability to move limbs without conscious control.
