I’m new to this website - but it looks a great source of support. My sister was diagnosed with FND about 2 weeks ago. She was on meds previously for anxiety but had come off them recently as she intended to start trying for a baby. I wonder if coming off the meds May have contributed to this. She has weakness in her limbs, falling a lot, slurred speech, bad fatigue and headaches.
She is still desperate to try for a child, and having visited the GP, she was told to give it a month. I am worried for her, I know some people can recover and get better, but I also see that this can become a long term condition. I am worried trying for a child so early into a diagnosis could make things worse, particularly with her anxiety. I would be interested to hear thoughts, am I being over protective? I don’t think she has quite grasped what the condition could mean, or accepted it yet. She doesn’t want to hear advice which doesn’t support what she wants either. I don’t want to dishearten her and I want to be supportive, I would welcome your thoughts.
