    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is Danielleob. I’m new to The Mighty and look forward to sharing my story. I was diagnosed this year with Functional Neurological Disorder, specifically Functional Seizures, FMD (twitches, tics, etc), Drop Attacks, and have been learning to manage them through a mindfulness based program for FND. So happy to join the mighty!

    My daughter has always had facial tics but woke up a few weeks ago hitting herself in the head. After seeing her psychiatrist and neurologists and blood work to rule out any underlying issues, they have diagnosed her with FND. I am at a loss on how to help her relieve these symptoms. She doesn't want to go to school because it's embarrassing and hurts (gives her a headache too). When she rides horses it "disappears" but once she stops the activity it comes back with a vengeance. Looking for ANY guidance or similar scenarios that have been helpful in dealing with this....
