CONVERSION DISORDER

published in the DSM-IV-TR, a somatoform dysfunction wherein people show at least one warning sign or flaw impacting deliberate motor and sensorial operations that imply a physical dysfunction is present, but for which there is in place, proof of psychological participation. These conversion indicators are not deliberately created or faked and aren't under deliberate management. They consist of loss of vision, seizures, disruption in motor abilities and equilibrium, paralysis, loss of voice, globus pharyngeus, and loss or touch and pain reception.

CONVERSION DISORDER: "The first symptom Justin displayed of conversion disorder was a seizure."
