Living with FND without realising I had FND Part 2 #FND #ChronicPain #braindamage #FuntionalNeurologicalDisorder
He explained FND is a neurological disorder where you have limb weakness, numbness and pain it’s a real problem and it’s not imagined. It is a problem with the functioning of the nervous system, it’s a problem of the way the brain sends messages to the body, it’s like having a software problem rather than a hardware problem on a computer. Having shown my brain scan there is a spectrum of white which is said that bit of my brain doesn’t work anymore so the scan shows physical damage and there is no treatment to cure that bit but I can try help by getting help from professionals to help train my brain if possible.
FND explains so much more then just the physicalness like the weak and numb leg, but also why I’m constantly tired dozing off when I want to; having a bad memory; Déréalisation episodes; Foreign Accent Syndrome (explains why I haven’t been able to get rid of the English accent although having heritage and being there I should have gotten my Australian normal voice back since being back in Australia years ago but my brain is sending different signals and basically I’m stuck with the English unless my brain says so); word finding difficulty; needing to pee so much in a day on some days; both legs jerk and twitch randomly.
I can’t cure the brain damage that is done but I can train my brain so will be finding the right professionals for that and be working on hopefully bettering my life before the damage gets worst later on in life.
