About this app

It is an app version of a website made by Professor Jon Stone and colleagues from the University of Edinburgh (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences), a leading FND research centre.

FND is a common but hidden condition that is the second commonest reason to see a neurologist. It causes symptoms like limb weakness, tremor and seizures. Everyone with FND has slightly different symptoms.

Using the app:
Use the HOME page to find resources on different FND SYMPTOMS, as well as common associated symptoms such as pain.
On the MEDIA page you will find some introductory videos about FND and other material.
On the TREATMENT page, learn about different types of therapy that can help with FND.
Use the 'SAVE' icon in the top right hand corner to keep tabs of pages relevant to you and share with others. If you are a healthcare professional, you can collect pages to recommend and share with your patients using the same function.
Other new content in this version include a new FAQ section, pages on Functional Tics, Speech and Language Therapy and updated pages on 'Causes'. Thank you to everyone in the FND community who suggested new content.

The site and app will be continually updated. Please use the FEEDBACK page to make suggestions for new content.

This app has been created using funding from the Scottish Government and with Pooja Jain and her team at CogniHealth.

Great to have. A great guide to point out symptoms to friends and family and put a name for what is happening.. Also great as a backup reminder, when I go to the neurologist and forget the different names for the symptoms... lol.

I'm not really sure what the point of this app is, the information is pretty good, but it would work better as a website or blog.

I am diagnosed with fnd and realised that many/most health professionals don't know or understand this condition. They only left me with no information but more questions once I was diagnosed. This app and its contents has given me the information I needed so much and I now feel I can finally accept it for what it is. This in turn helps me to help myself but also my family as it can be worrying for them too. His YouTube videos are excellent as well. Thank you for this app
