Too many patients presenting with symptoms of FND are dismissed, and do not receive the referrals or treatment they need.

Funding to increase awareness of FND should improve how this condition is diagnosed, and onward referrals and treatment. Symptoms can include:

Numbness
Weakness
Tremors
Blackouts

Without any referrals to treatment centres people can be left with detrimental consequences and lead people to low moods and life-changing events without support.
