Hi, id love to hear from someone who has made a complete recovery from fnd/conversion disorder.If you could share what helps/what doesnt help? id also love to hear from people who are still trying hard to recover and share their experience of what helps.i was diagnosed with conversion disorder over a year ago since then symptoms wax and wane and have changed over time.just when i get hope full that im getting better symptoms flare up again ive found cognitive behaviour mindfullness therapy has helped me cope better with symptoms but didnt rid me of them.im now recieving weekly one hour sessions of psychotherapy which i find is great for my mental health i think any one with this condition might agree it does eventually take its toll on your mental health.i hope so bad that psychotherapy is the answer and eventually these symptoms will go.Im working hard but sometimes its like beating your head off a brick wall.I do firmly believe if doctors could step into our bodies and live there for a month,im sure firstly they would be screaming to get out after a week and seccondly they would then understand why its so hard to believe that this condition is purely psychological,thirdly i believe they would put every effort to try and find a cure if they themselves were inflicted with this condition or atleast do everything they could to alievate symptoms.
my symptoms that wax and wane.come and go dont all happen at same time.
-Fatigue(not just a little tired,not lazy. exausted),does alievate with rest sleep 2/3 hrs during day,gets worse with physical and mental activity, fighting the need to rest and ignoring the need makes it worse eventually getting to point of collapse.
-pain upper right back behind sholder.ive come to the conclusion this pain is caused by muscle spasm.stretches helps applying pressure to work out spasm helps.pain can be just enough to cause disscomfort or bad enough to wake me at night.
-numbness tingling crawling burning, if it lasts for long period of time it eventually feels like torture,most of the time when this is happening i can put it to one side and get on with things.
- difficulty walking- sometimes walking is normal,some times legs go stiff after walking distance other times legs feel weak.off balance clumsy.
-slower to take in info,word finding, forgetfull.
-slurred speech sometimes.
-tremor does not feel like a nervous tremor.gets worse if im excited or if i try to rush.
