Default Conversion disorder?

Can a sleep disorder be caused by conversion disorder? My sleep problems are getting worse and Iím worried I have conversion disorder. Although Iím confused because I donít know if people with conversion disorder know, or admit that they have it, and Iím also not sure if people with conversion disorder can admit that itís anxiety and stress causing the issue.

But Iím really scared I have CD because my sleep issues are getting worse. I donít know either if sleep disorders can be diagnosed as CD or what. My sleep issues started when my somatic symptoms went away. My somatic symptoms were because of my weight. Now Iím not even sure I ever had somatization disorder or if my body just simply couldnít handle being so big. Now it seems when Iím stressed or anxious that means Iím actually getting sick. Like where I get a legit medical diagnosis.

Iím just really confused. And really worried about conversion disorder.

Maybe you would be best advised by your doctor/p'doc or T what these issues from sleep are. Having issues sleeping can be caused by many many things. It could be something small and basic like you are too hot to sleep or too much noise or it could be something serious. Worrying about it being a cd when you are trying to sleep could be counter productive. Hope you find an answer soon.

Default Re: Conversion disorder?

My T says night terrors/ sleep disorders and conversion disorder are two separate things. She said that I need a sleep study if things are getting worse. She said I donít have conversion disorder because people with that wonít admit they have it, and wonít admit its anxiety

I know I mentioned it one time to my old pdoc and he said if I think I have that, then I defiently donít have it. Itís something I worry a lot about.

Having a sleep study sounds like a good idea. They might be able find out what the real issue is and point you to a solution.
