My symptoms started in 2010 when a sporting injury happened. The doctors didn’t have a clue where to start or what to test for. Years went by and I had lots of testing done. I was suffering with the left leg paralysis and numbness/weakness on the left side of my body. Leaving me unable to walk and relying on crutches. I fell downstairs in 2014 & in that hospital stay I was diagnosed with FND.
Since then I’ve had lots of different treatments to help, like physio, but some doctors had never even heard of FND which then becomes a problem . When I have a flare up of still left with left sided paralysis, left sided weakness, brain fog & fatigue, lower back pain & hip pain. I have a very supportive family & would be lost without them.
