For everyone who responded to me yesterday. Thank you. I am 38 years old, married and have two small boys. I have lived in Arkansas my whole life. Last summer I injured my back during yard work. I initially started with a steroid shot, muscle relaxers, and naproxen but it never got better. My PCP sent me to physical therapy but the therapist was concerned because I had limited movement in my foot. I went for a lumbar MRI and to see a neuro spine surgeon. He said my lumbar was fine but was concerned because I had foot drop. He ordered MRI's of brain, thoracic and cervical spine but all were fine so he sent me to a neurologist. Working in healthcare I knew a neurologist so I got in to see her and she ordered lots of lab work and a lumbar puncture. The only thing that was off was elevated protein levels in my spinal fluid. Over this time my walking became worse and I had developed weakness in my right leg and right hand. I was sent to a neuromuscular specialist in Memphis who initially said I had Cortico Basal Degeneration and he ordered a DATScan. That came back negative so he did a nerve conduction study and said he detected active denervation in my spine and he was concerned that I had ALS and he shipped me to Mayo. The docs at Mayo automatically suspected FND but they ordered another nerve conduction study. They said it was normal but when I got the report last week, as suspected, they did not test any of the areas that the previous physician had detected active denervation in. Always going to leave a question in my mind. Since then my walking has improved through physical therapy but I still have weak muscles, dexterity issues, and seizure-like episodes. I am going to continue to seek answers and battle it. The hardest thing is not being able to provide for my family and help around the house as I could before. It is a hard battle with more questions than answers.
