Hi Skylark and welcome! I don’t think you (and Mogthedog) are alone in being diagnosed with a conversion disorder, as you have found. This is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning all other physical causes need to be ruled out first. I have no doubt that many people with diagnoses of conversion disorders, somatic disorders, and other psychiatric disorders have an undiagnosed physical problem. We need to keep digging for the causes because once they are found and properly treated, the psychiatric symptoms can go away. As a patient, I think I experienced most every psychiatric symptom out there (yeeks!), yet all have resolved WITHOUT medication typically prescribed for such illnesses. Clearly, we are missing too much. Thanks for joining us!
