Newly diagonosed with FND - still trying to get my head around all of it and information. After not having a true diagnoses for 2 yrs I'm a bit relieved. I have been to doctors and hospital ER so many times...just to be told nothing is wrong and I'm wasting their resources. There is something physically wrong when you can't walk, talk and go on about normal life. I was asked by one doctor why couldn't I go to work, why are you out of work - for one how would I get there in this condition, no function of lower legs and who would want me to answer phones with slurred stuttering speech. Not to mention the fatigue that takes over. If I hear about stress one more time...this is stressful not having control and not knowing what the heck is happening to you thinking the worst at times.
My episodes are getting worse each time now and getting closer in time. Last year I was out of work for 4 month and then could only work part-time. I'm out of work again since the beginning on 2013 - I fear I will not be able to return due to symptoms and episodes.
From what I'm reading I'm sure most are experiencing alot of the same and the frustration that goes along with it. I'm doing my best to pick myself up again and work with PT and other suggestions to get better. I love to be active, miss getting out, walking and doing everyday things. My family has been very supportive but very confused as to what is happening as well.
Believe, Be positive! Hope there are some answers.
