Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) : a patient's guide

including Functional/Dissociative (non-epileptic) Seizures,  Functional Movement Disorder and other functional symptoms




Most patients with functional or dissociative symptoms have  more than one symptom. Experiencing lots of different symptoms at once can be a particularly baffling feature of these illness for patients.


These are some of the other symptoms that patients with one kind of functional or dissociative symptom can experience as part of their illness.


Usually all of these symptoms are best seen as part of one illness rather than interpreted as multiple illnesses.
