Why are people at risk of suicide after hosp discharge? We found key factors were short admissions, lack of aftercare & life events - implying returning home with problems unresolved.

Very important study, showing once again increased mortality rates among patients with psychogenic nonepileptic attacks or seizures. Potentially caused by increased rates of metabolic syndrome and psychiatric comorbidities.

Large Danish study showing 3-fold increase in mortality in 1057 functional (non-epileptic/dissociative) seizure patients compared to 2113 controls. Causes not known but potential clues from comorbidities.

How interesting but also sad that here there is evidence from years back, about a disorder still trying to be looked after, but no clear answer yet and possibly never will be? 🙁

This makes sad reading, in this day & age it would be hoped could be diagnosed quicker & patients given an explanation of what they have & given direction to any help needed 🙁

Functional Neurological Disorders are not all in the mind, not self inflicted and not fake. For whatever reason, or a combination of reasons, something has gone wrong to cause the brain/nervous system to not function correctly. It's a neurological disorder

Functional Motor Disorders - new advances. Great session from and Mark Edwards. Knowing how the brain works, then FND is what you would expect when it goes wrong. It would be weird if it didn’t exist.
