I have M.E and Bi-polar disorder, A year ago I had what the hospital said was a stroke until I had a MRI & EEG.I was then told FND by one person and at A &E and NES by a Neurologist. My symptoms have been getting worse, I have the seizures practically daily but I also have Migranes, bladder problems, a condition with my eyes that need botox injected into my eyelids, Foot turns in and freezes, hand claws, body stiffins until I stop breathing and pass out sometimes and foot turns blue, problems sleeping, Anxiety, pain in my legs and arms and neck which can make my legs give way,involuntary movements, twitching, Photophobia, feeling of electric currents in my body. Obviously I do not get everyone every day, but my life is becoming a nightmare living with this. The Neurologist when I asked him 4 times if it was FND said no it is NES that is causing me the most upset and discomfort.I assured him the other things were making everyday living hard and he still said No. He said this was happening because I do not get 'Stressed enough' and this is a vent for the stress to come away. I am on medication for the Bipolar so is it a case of I come of the medication to be stressed or live with this! I feel I have more than NES and I am not been listened to. Is there any reason why he would not give me this diagnosis do you think? I am really upset and Angry, of course I do not want NED or FND but I just want to be correctly diagnosed. He told me on an upside to my body stiffening and stopping breathing that I would pass out and breath again! Happy days then, I am sure my children would be reassured if they saw this happen.
