If I have another diagnosed condition, which should be treated?
You and your doctor(s) should discuss the best course of action to eliminate those symptoms that are most bothersome or cause the greatest discomfort. An FND diagnosis should not typically take precedence over a diagnosed organic illness. However, there may be instances when addressing the functional symptoms would improve quality of life. An FND diagnosis should not impede treatment for a known illness at any time. Healthcare professionals should always err on the side of medical caution.
