DUTCH Translation in progress by Prof Rien Vermeulen, Neurologist, Amsterdam and Jeannette Gelauff
I am very honoured that neurology, medical and nursing colleagues in a wide range of countries have contacted me to arrange a translation of neurosymptoms.org in to other languages. Words and meanings change in different cultures and so it was important that these sites were adapted by professionals familiar with the topic. Some of these sites are complete. Others are in development

I do not collect (and do not have the facility for collecting) data from individuals who visit this site.
Like most website operators, neurosymptoms.org and its translations collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, neurosymptoms.org may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website as an aggregated statistic
Functional Neurological forum launched in 2015 as an umbrella organisation for health professionals interested in functional neurological disorders and symptoms. This includes neurologists, physiotherapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation physicians, speech and language therapists and patients interested in promoting awareness of FND
Anyone can join fnforum including patients but it is designed as a forum to bring together health professionals, inform them of conferences and other events. If you are looking for a patient forum see the links on the links page

I have carried out an interim update of the site in December - to obtain a security certificate and move off the Adobe Flash platform. The site now runs in html5. Hope you like it it! Jon Stone
