Terrible treatment by Doctors and Nurses

One time I went to the ER after having a non epileptic psychogenic seizure and was told to wait for a bed. At this time I didn't know that I had PNES and doctors were unable to distinguish it from epileptic seizures.

Review of Voon et al's Study on Neurobiology of CD



When neurology and psychiatry moved apart from each other around the turn of the 20th century, casualties included the many patients with unexplained neurological disorders. Many labels have been applied to these patients. Some are descriptive (functional disorders, medically unexplained symptoms), while others refer to a presumed aetiology (psychogenic, hysteria, non-organic) or putative mechanism (dissociative or conversion disorder). Whatever is the label, for some physicians these patients are among the most interesting and ...
