I have just been diagnosed with FND, Iv never heard of it before but it explains so much about why I have involuntary body movements, speech issues ontop of various other symptoms.

Im just wondering if anyone else has heard of this.

Thanks

    Thanks @Chloe_Scope, Iv just found that website, it’s very informative.

    thanks for looking for me I appreciate it greatly, Iv had lots of questions I had in my head answered just looking online. It’s been a long time coming, not knowing what my problems were.

    I don’t really like labels but when you don’t know what all these things physically that happen are then for me righ now it’s helped .

    Thanks again

    No problem @susan48, the unknown can be extremely daunting! It is really good that you are looking up questions as this period of a diagnosis can be very confusing and you are bound to have questions. I wish you the very best of luck and please do not hesitate to be in touch if you want to talk about this further :)
