I am newly diagnosed with FND - as a diagnosis of exclusion rather than with positive signs. Grrrr. In other words, they have ruled out all the known neurological disorders via tests, so now they have decided that I must have FND. I am not buying it....especially when I have an unequivocal Babinski reflex, which Babinski himself used as a criterion to separate the hysterics of his day from the organically ill. I have other signs which also cannot be FND, including double vision and pronator drift. My neurologists have documented these. Yet, because I don't have ALS or MS or a tumor, they decide on FND. So, I have a question. Does a neurologist monitor this forum? If so, my question to him/her is: Are there any cases of a Babinski reflex being from FND? Everything I have read says that it ALWAYS is due to organic pathological damage to the cortico-spinal tract. Please advise. Thanks.
