What is an example of a conversion disorder?

A woman who believes it is not acceptable to have violent feelings may suddenly feel numbness in her arms after becoming so angry that she wanted to hit someone. Instead of allowing herself to have violent thoughts about hitting someone, she experiences the physical symptom of numbness in her arms. #PsychogenicMovement #psychogenictremors

Psychogenic Tremors

Psychogenic movement disorders are characterized by unwanted movements, such as spasms, shaking or jerks involving any part of the face, neck, trunk or limbs. In addition, some patients may have bizarre gait or difficulties with their balance that are caused by underlying stress or some psychological condition. #bpdworld #Depression #ADHD #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #Autism #psychogenictremors
