I Don't Understand What HappenedHi everyone, i'm bella, i'm 21 and i have conversion disorder.
It all started 2 years ago when my mom took me into the emergency room because i'm hypoglycemic and i argued with her the entire way. I was really upset about what she was doing and i resisted the doctors and nurses who tried to help me. (prob not the smartest move..but when you're hypoglycemic you don't really think too clearly). anyways they admitted me to a medical floor and the next morning i woke up, stood up out of bed and fell down. ever since that day i cannot use my legs. they're not paralyzed, i can move them, but i cannot stand or walk at all, i cannot weight bear. i've been doing physio for a year and no improvement. they try and make me stand with a walker etc and i fall right down. i've seen neurologists, cardiologists, had scans, internists, conversion disorder specialists- everything. no one knows why it happened but it did. and i'm terrified that i'll never be able to walk again. on 2 different occasoins i lost my eyesight, which came back in a week (so scary) and i lost movement of my arms for a month. but my legs never came back..i'm really scared. can anyone relate?
