So UCSF says the same thing. Psychogenic Non Epileptic Seizures. | Circa Aug 1, 2011

So UCSF says the same thing. Psychogenic Non Epileptic Seizures. A type of conversion disorder most likely triggered by the pain of RA last year combined with other previous life trauma.

She said my body just had enough and so it shut down. I have to believe the dx before I can start getting better. With time, a psychiatrist and psychologist I may get better. 

The doctor treated me with respect. She was also very honest, forthright. Something I haven’t gotten from a lot of from MDs this past year.

She said it doesn’t mean these aren’t real — the source isn’t physical. It’s coming from my mind. Not something they can treat and right now not something I can control. I’m struggling with the reality of this, but accepting  the diagnosis.
