International FND Awareness Day…
International FND (Functional Neurological Disorder) Awareness Day is observed every year on April 13. The goal of the week is to promote awareness, support affected individuals, and advance research for the prevention, treatment, and recovery of FND.
Functional Neurological Disorder or FND is due to a problem with the functioning of the nervous system and thought to be the result of the brain’s inability to send and receive signals properly.
Patients experience a broad range of neurological symptoms such as movement disorders and sensory issues. Essentially, there is a problem with the functioning of the nervous system sending and/or receiving signals from the body. These symptoms appear similar to disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Epilepsy, and can be equally debilitating and distressing.
As knowledge of this condition has increased, it is now understood that FND stems from biological, environmental and psychological vulnerabilities.
Functional Neurological Disorder affects the nervous system of the patients and hence results in the brain’s improper function and inability to respond to signals.
FND, or Functional Neurological Disorder, is a disorder that breaks down the communications between the brain and the body, even when both the brain and the body are functioning correctly. FND can mimic other conditions because varying patients can have symptoms ranging from chronic pain to immobility.
However, many patients that come into a doctor’s office get diagnosed with diseases that have routes in the organic body rather than that of the mind. With FND, the symptoms come from neither psychological or organic routes, but the pain still exists, hence why FND is not as widely heard of unlike diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease. Currently, the best treatment plans available are through physical therapy.
