Will my FND symptoms continue to get worse?

What’s the prognosis? I have a young daughter and a beautiful wife. I think I have been in denial about this for some time but now my symptoms seem worse than ever.

I’m starting to get scared.

Slurred speech

Poor balance

Walk like Frankenstein's monster

Illegible handwriting (I've never been neat but it's now totally incomprehensible)

Typing is extremely slow and laborious (ex journo and used to pump out a genuine 60 WPM)_ .. i haven't done a test lately but would guess i am down to about 5 with appalling accuracy.

I have bladder problems that may or may not be FND related

I get physically exhausted extremely easily

Wife says i do this strange thing with my tongue when I eat

I am sure there's more but that will do for now they are all getting worse.

Are you in Australia visioinrm?

I'm at work at the moment so I'll have a look at the Facebook page tonight.

As for the doctor and neurologist, I'm not sure how much they know about FND. I will sus out the GP in the next week or two and have an appointment with neurologist in May.

Best get back to work.

Thanks for your support guys.

FND is a hard diagnosis to accept but often with acceptance comes some relief of symptoms. Try and get as much support as you can. This is a great place to start.
