Hi all. Long story short, I've had essential tremor (or what I thought was ET) since 2012, over the past 6 months it has got progressively worse, along with some other neurological symptoms. On the 27th of December I was admitted to hospital due to complete paralysis/weakness in both my legs. Fast forward two weeks, and after multiple MRIs and tests, nothing was found. I saw a really great neurologist on two occasions. He diagnosed me with FND. I'm just looking for some advice about a few things. Firstly, should I notify the DVLA? I should point out I can now move my legs again, but they are still very weak/heavy.
Also. On discharge from hospital on the 11th, my mum told me her and my stepdad have been battling the flu for the last week. Am I eligible for the flu jab, even if not should I pay to get it at a pharmacy? My local one is offering it. Does FND make me more succeptable to these things? I've always found in the past I'm floored even just with a normal cold. 😶😐
I'm 24, female, from Scotland.
