Conversion disorder is a mental condition. These patients will experience physical symptoms that have no physical causes and that the different tests and physical examinations won't have any explanation for. Examples of these symptoms are blindness and paralysis. Persons experiencing this are not faking these symptoms, this condition is real. This condition is called ''conversion'', because the idea that scientists have put through to explain it, is that these patients experience psychological distress and the latter is being converted into physical symptoms. Based on this theory, doctors will try to determine if the patient has any underlying mental health conditions like mood and personality disorders, or if the patient is experiencing any stress or going through any conflicts and that might be the cause for this condition.
The most important thing to do when trying to manage this condition is to not in any way make it seem like the patient is faking it, because that will only make it worse. But in most cases, the symptoms will go away as soon as the stress has been reduced and the conflicts have been resolved. In severe cases, physical therapy can help.
All in all, the patients have to deal with the conflicts and sources of distress, underlying conditions must be addressed and treated, and psychotherapy is very helpful in this condition. Meditation and yoga are also recommended.
