I've recently been diagnosed with RR MS and FND. It's causing me lots of confusion and I really feel frustrated with the whole medical profession because they seem to think that everything prior to my diagnosis of MS is FND and I now feel under scrutiny. My spinal cord MRI also shows that I have MS in my cervical spine ( I think it's at C4 level), with bulging discs in my lumbar spine. Despite having bursitis ( irritation on my right hip). The neurologists insinuates that the pain and atypical gait that I have developed is due to psychological factors !!!!
I've had pain in my back and hip for many years but they say that my difficulties walking are not neurological in origin. Aaaaargh! I never said they were.
I don't know what's worse at the moment : being diagnosed with MS or having the FND tagged onto my diagnosis.
Any one put there with a dual diagnosis? It's hard to trust my body at the best of times and don't know what's real or not!
