had the neuro today and have been diagnosed with functional neurological disorder.
very unexpected and been quite weepy today. i stopped thinking it was ms a while ago because i was diagnosed with b12 deficiency. thought i could put everything down to that, but neuro said if there had been nerve damage to give me the symptoms i have, it would have been evident in the mri.
i watched him doing a neuro test on my legs, and i remembered something i had read about FND, so i knew then what he was going to say.
he told me to go to the neurosymptoms.org site, which i had already read because of this forum (thanks)
i asked about evoked potential and he’s referring me to have that done, if only to put my mind at rest that his diagnosis is correct. he was lovely, really.
next step…he’s referred me to a doctor in the city who has an interest in FND (said she’s great!!), also physio and psychologist.
