Has anyone had any experience with dissociative fugue?

3 doctors agree

In brief: No, but...

...Psychoanalysts view fugue as a type of dissociation, a psychological defense mechanism that results in a drastic modification of one's sense of personal identity in order to avoid emotional distress.
Once medical causes are ruled out (e.g. Narcolepsy, automatisms of complex partial seizures), psychotherapy is the treatment of choice. In severe cases, antipsychotics may be part of the treatment.
