Monday 9/2 at 7.00pm and suddenly I couldn't walk properly thought I had an inner ear infection until I was rushed to hospital ( after falling over ) 4 days in hospital and after many tests the neurology doctor said you've got Functional Neurological Disorder you can go home now as long as some can watch over you. So here I am no information , no medical support eg walker or meds and I suppose I just have to wait for my appointment for physiotherapy , doctor wants to see me in 2 weeks I don't know what for ,so many questions.
I have always suffered with depression and anxiety and having 2 autistic children been very stressed as of late but have always been fit and active running etc only being 39yrs old .I started suffering with migraines about 6 months ago then really tired and then wham. Now according to my other half I continually rock and jerk while sitting or standing and walk very jerky like I am being electrocuted ,very tired just walking from room to room is exhausting and kind of dangerous ( fall risk apparently ) and everything I do seems like a major effort and in slow mow. I suppose the biggest question is am I going to be like this forever, then what help is there for me in the UK, should I stop being stubborn and get a walker/ wheel chair when allowed outside ,what are people going to think of me staggering around? ,will I get better and can I drive (cognitive bit okay ) sorry to ramble but very frustrated , scared and feeling kind of lost I know my other half is the same but does not want to let it show. Oh and I also feel guilty for being like this and not being a mom and wife.
