I thought I was alone

I cannot tell you how good it is to know that I am not alone in this. I have never met anyone else with Conversion Disorder. I have been dealing with this for 14 years now, and I felt as if no one understood me.

My first episode came while I was in the Army stationed in Okinawa, Japan. I was in a Special Forces unit and we went to Thailand for a 3week training ...

Anyone have psychogenic aphonia?

Just need to talk- oh wait, I can't! Haha!
Not being able to speak is aggravating.
Meeting with neuro in 2 weeks to get follow-up to confirm it's not neurological.
Speech therapist confirmed it's not physiological.
It's not selective mutism- I TRY to speak. I just... forget how. Nothing comes out. It's terrifying and painful.
It's also very intermittent. I can speak 90% of the time.
I just can't right now.
And I'm a huge ...

CD Diagnosis, but not sure - advice please :)


I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm here because I was researching Conversion Disorder, which I was diagnosed with earlier today. The problem is that, although this makes sense, I am not fully in agreement. I don't understand why more tests have not been carried out before issuing this label - I'm kinda hoping for some advice here. Firstly, let me apologise for the length of this post: ...

Not Sure but Highly Suspicious

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the forum and have a concern that I need addressed, if at all possible. Over the last few months I've been experiencing symptoms that I'm highly suspicious of being, somehow, related to CD. I'm getting ready to go out and all of a sudden, right out of the blue my legs start shaking so bad I'm fearful of falling! It's a very weird sort of trembling and it feels like ...

My story with CD

I had non-epileptic seizures for three years, starting when I was 16. They would last anywhere from one hour to three hours. I would be convulsing but totally aware of my surroundings and able to interact with the people staring at me. I was hospitalized after two months of seizures (three a week) and the doctor told me I had a conversion disorder. All the blood work ups, EEGs, and MRIs came back normal, showing ...
