I am a 19 year old female. I am usually pretty active. I used to hacky sack for at least 4 hours every day. I haven't been able to walk for a little over 4 months now. I can stand, but I can't lift my feet up. I have been having to use a wheelchair to get around. I have seen multiple doctors and had all sorts of tests. The diagnosis is conversion disorder, which basically means that my brain is telling my legs not to work without me knowing it. The psychiatrist I spoke with said that conversion disorder doesn't really make sense in my case, since it is caused by severe physical or emotional trauma, which I have not had. One of the really strange things is that I can usually walk in the morning right after I get up until I sit down. Last month, I had a scary experience where I was unable to talk or write for 14 hours. I had a less severe episode last summer where I was saying something to my mom, but what was coming out of my mouth didn't make any sense with what I was trying to say. That only lasted for about a minute. Have you or someone you know experienced anything like this?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
