Not diagnosed with FND yet, but my guess is I will be soon. I've had everything else ruled out and my tremors are increasing, right sided limp, head twitching, hand and foot burn, etc... They also say one test that helps diagnose FND is whether your movements with compromised muscles get better when you move another at the same time....mine totally do. I find myself always wanting to move. I walk miles a day as my full body shakes when I stand still. Symptoms came on fast, sometimes go away for a few days or hours, and come back just as quickly.
Here's my question. Past Trauma does seem to be at the root for many people with FND... it is for me. Is anyone talking about MDMA Therapy for treating the condition? It is currently being used for PTSD patients and having extremely positive results. It essentially allows people to revisit their trauma (physical, emotional, etc..) but from a safe place, and allows the body to process and release the stored trauma. It will be FDA-approved by 2023. If in fact, past trauma is a key player, this seems like it deserves discussion.
