Just being diagnosed with FND through the fantastic Edinburgh Neurological team. However, I am having greater difficulty getting NHS to accept Blue Horizon tests which show (both Saliva and blood) that my cortisol levels are very low. Not critically, otherwise I'd be diagnosed, but stage 3/going into Stage 4 adrenal insufficiency.
I am seeing an NHS endo on Wed. I'm not expecting him to accept the Blue Horizon test results, though wouldn't be great if he did - as the BH gp/plus a retired gp friend have both diagnosed adrenal fatigue Stage 3/4.... but I'm hoping with having so many FND symptoms, he will at least agree to further NHS tests, and be open to the fact that FND can have an effect on other systems.
Anyone out there with Addisons's/adrenal fatigue with Functional Neurological Disorder?
Many Thanks.... Cuileann :O)
