Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is a specific brain disorder that affects how the brain is accessing or controlling movement and perception. How the body functions is affected rather than being caused by damage to its structure. 

The brain/nervous system fails to send and/or receive signals correctly around the body, which can result in a variety of movement/motor and sensory disturbances. Functional neurological symptoms are genuine, involuntary and diverse neurological symptoms including limb weakness, paralysis, seizures, walking difficulties, spasms, twitching, sensory issues and more.
