Conversion disorder is when someone shows psychological stress in physical ways. The symptoms can be very severe, ranging from blindness, to seizures or paralysis. For example, a woman who believes it is not acceptable to have violent feelings may suddenly feel numbness in her arms after becoming so angry that she wanted to hit someone.
Another example would be someone whose afraid to give a speech, becomes physically unable to speak before the event. One more is when in wartime, some soldiers undergoing heavy stress but not wounded were hospitalized because they could not walk or speak after the battle.
People who have conversion disorder are not making up their symptoms. This condition is real. It causes distress and cannot be turned on and off at will. (Source) (Source) (Masterpost of Human Mind & Brain Interactions)
