INTERNATION 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.
