One of the individuals interviewed for Ken Burns's documentary, The War, reports intermittent conversion symptoms triggered by his dreams. Quentin Aanenson of Lucerne, Minnesota flew the P-47 "Thunderbolt" in Europe. Aanenson recalled some disturbing images from a time when he shot up a column of retreating German soldiers. As he was returning to his base in England, Aanenson's right hand went numb. He had to reach over with his left hand to handle the stick and land his plane safely. Aanenson said that he still dreams about the incident and when he wakes up his right hand is paralyzed briefly.
Aanenson discusses his experiences in this video, although he doesn't mention the paralysis in this particular clip.
