What a Drop Attack can feel like!

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is a difficult condition to try to explain and understand. This makes understanding the symptoms of FND even more difficult to explain. One such symptom, and one that I experience myself, is Drop Attacks.
A Drop Attack is basically what it sounds like – you drop to the floor without any warning or obvious reason! It’s not like fainting where you feel unwell then briefly lose consciousness & fall to the floor. In a Drop Attack you simply just drop to the floor for no obvious reason & while still completely conscious & awareness of what is happening. For me, it’s almost like a puppet on strings suddenly having all their supporting strings cut all at once & the puppet collapsing in a heap on the floor. As you can imagine, this is a terrifying symptom that can often cause some painful injuries to the person experiencing them. No matter how many times you experience a Drop Attack it’s not something that you ever get used to, if anything it makes you more concerned about the next one.
