hi my son has been ill for two years he had an op to remove kidney stones, when he came round after the op he was in terrible painthis went on for two weeks then all these strange symptoms started, he complained of numb patches on his legs and bottom,pins and needles all over him bad headache vision problems in his right eye then his right leg went numb he cannot move it or feel it, he has had a normal emg and normal ct brain scan, his symptoms eventually settled but his right leg never came back, over the fitst twelve months he was admitted four times withh reacuring symptoms and collapses this year has been much better he has been abled to cope at home when he feels bad but he still cannot move or feel his right leg, the doctors are baffled and are now saying it is conversion disorder with out any evidence to prove this, we have had physcological assesment done on him which came back saying he is okay but the doctors just dismissed this, we dont no what to do for the best now , we feel we have been fobbed of and he has to lead his life with a condition which we dont understand he gets no help of any one he can get about short distances on crutches and his leg drags behind him on bad days he uses his wheel chair, he is now having problems with his upper body due to the pressure of the weight of his body he is using trying to get about on crutches we are out of our minds if we had a reason for this condition it would be easier to except and adapt to
