My name is Tam and today I've been diagnosed with FND. I am almost 35. I live in Australia with my husband and two little girls.
I have had, over the last decade, many episodes of neuro symptoms that have eluded diagnosis. Many MRIs, one lumbar puncture, CAT scans, EEGs, and conductivity tests. All clear. I have had some severe episodes this year, leaving me unable to walk without assistance. Scary!
Today I saw one of the top neurologists in my city, and he concluded that FND is the culprit. I've been referred on to the specialist FND clinic in my city. Super long waiting list, there are only two of them in all of Australia. Crazy, huh?
I'm relieved to finally have some answers, but it's still very overwhelming! So it will be nice to connect with others with FND
I also have Bipolar Disorder, and I'm already on Lamictal (Lamotrigine), so that medication is working twice as hard!
