What is a Functional Neurological Disorder (FND)?
A diagnosis of Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) describes when somebody is suffering functional problems (symptoms) which appear neurological in origin, but where there is no identifiable structural damage to their brain and nervous system. Rather, the problem is with how the brain and body send, receive and interpret signals. To use a computer analogy, it’s a software problem rather than a hardware problem.
“I was pretty much housebound but everyone thought I was a total fraud. I was so lucky that I then found Bruce Dyer who took over my claim. Bruce is so understanding and knew exactly how to get everything back on track again. I’m so grateful.” FG, February 2019 (£310,000 recovered for a FND)

Functional neurological disorder symptoms
It’s impossible to describe ‘typical’ Functional Neurological Disorder symptoms. People suffering FNDs experience a wide range and often terrible combination of symptoms. Common ones include chronic pain, headaches, gait and balance problems, bowel and bladder problems, cognitive issues, sensory changes and changes in vision and speech.
What causes an FND?
The cause of FNDs is unknown. Sufferers often believe that as there is no identifiable structural problem, their condition is ‘all in their mind’. That is wrong. As they know only too well, their symptoms are very real.
“Andrew Atkinson was superb from day one. I can’t praise him enough.” YT, October 2018 (£280,000 recovered for a FND)
How are FNDs diagnosed?
The diagnosis of an FND often takes a long time. Typically, a neurologist and psychiatrist work together to rule out any underlying structural and/or psychological problem. However, it’s wrong to say that an FND is simply a diagnosis of exclusion, ie if everything else has been ruled out, that’s what it must be.
Functional neurological disorder treatment
Symptoms can sometimes improve or resolve without treatment. However, most commonly, specialists recommend a combination of treatments and therapies. These often include:
“Not only are you a fantastic lawyer, you’re a genuinely decent human being. Thank you for fighting so hard for me.” ED, January 2019 (£300,000 recovered for a FND)
FND Support Group
FND Hope is a registered charity whose stated mission is to promote awareness of FND, support affected individuals and advance research for the prevention, treatment and recovery of the condition.
Functional Neurological Disorder compensation

Those results are only possible as a result of our unrivalled knowledge and understanding of FND and how to accumulate and build the evidence required for a successful claim.
As Functional Neurological Disorder solicitors, we understand just how debilitating your condition is. We also understand the fundamental importance of protecting your and your family’s future financial security.
How will my claim be funded?
Most of our clients instruct us on a no win/no fee basis, although you may already have in place legal expenses insurance to fund your claim. Find out more about legal costs.
