Schizophrenia or Brain Inflammation?

Postby amaranta » Wed May 16, 2018 2:42 am

Misdiagnosed with schizophrenia for a year. Later on received the correct diagnosis of treatable brain inflammation - autoimmune encephalitis (Hashimoto's Encephalitis) in April 2017. I am very happy that my story got posted in AE Alliance blog. I hope it will help some readers to receive a proper diagnosis. I cannot say that I recovered 100%, but there is improvement after IV steroids, and at least now I know the specific diagnosis. I’m sure that for many being told by doctors multiple diagnoses is a horrible experience. Going from one doctor to next, being told it’s schizophrenia, major depression, schizoaffective disorder… More doctors need to be aware of HE!
