I was diagnosed with FND a couple months ago. I live in the uk. I was diagnosed autoimmune hypothyroidism in 2004. In 2006 I started to get leg weakness. This has progressed to arm weakness and episodes of left side weakness and stroke like symptoms. I cannot tolerate any thyroid meds and so am not on any at the moment. In 2008 I had an MRI which came back clear. I have had two seperate nerve and muscle tests that showed diffuse myopathy. Since then I have moved to a different area and am getting progressively worse. My Endocrinologist thought my episodes sounded like Hemiplegic migraine so I saw another Neurologist. He was very flippant and the appointment was extremely rushed. It felt like he was annoyed at my being there like I was wasting his time. He diagnosed me with FND, told me it would get better on its own and discharged me.
My question is can you have myopathy in FND? I am struggling with this diagnosis as I believe it may be all linked to my untreated Hypothyroidism. Would the Myopathy result point to an organic problem or would this be consistent with FND?
I would be very greatful for any thoughts here and Thankyou in advance
