Conversion Disorder Symptoms
Conversion disorder features one or more symptoms or deficits affecting voluntary motor or sensory function that suggest a neurological or other general medical condition.
Psychological factors are judged to be associated with the symptom or deficit because the initiation or exacerbation of the symptom or deficit is preceded by conflicts or other stressors.
The symptom or deficit is not intentionally produced or feigned (as in factitious disorder or malingering).
The symptom or deficit cannot, after appropriate investigation, be fully explained by a general medical condition, or by the direct effects of a substance, or as a culturally-sanctioned behavior or experience.
The symptom or deficit causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning or warrants medical evaluation.
The symptom or deficit is not limited to pain or sexual dysfunction, does not occur exclusively during the course of somatization disorder, and is not better accounted for by another mental disorder.
