Hello, my daughter in her twenties has Conversion Disorder and PTSD. Has anybody been offered any treatment for the Conversion Disorder that has helped them? My daughter had her physio discontinued as they say they don't really deal with mental health issues and now nobody seems interested in doing anything for her or able to offer anything to help. She has been out of her wheelchair since March and walking with a rollator but seems to have hit a glass ceiling in her recovery now - she still has bouts of her right leg being very weak and painful and dragging behind her as if paralysed, and some bouts of urinary incontinence. She gets a lot of pain in her back, which again they say has no physical cause. I still don't get the mechanism of how her grief over losing her two boys (stolen by social services) actually causes her legs not to function properly and nobody seems able to explain it to me - they say the brain converts mental pain into physical symptoms but when I ask how they just waffle about it not being really understood. So how do they know that's what in fact is happening? I am so scared that something like MS might be being missed, even though they say the scans/tests show nothing.
