  • Mary on Feb, 8, 2013:

    2 years ago I was bit by a tic, had 5 eye surgeries, pulled a 100 pound trash can down a dirt road with potholes and my arm distorted behind me and my ex husband pulled a shotgun on me and I barely got out alive. One of these things started my conversion disorder or all of them. I have a trembling right arm and my thumb sticks straight out and twitches constantly. I have cervical stenosis and my neck hurts so bad and I also have issues with my spine in the c-5 region. My doctor could care less that my arm is trembling and ignores my complaints. I have had this trembling arm for 2 years. 3 neurologists said I had parkinsons but finally a 4th neurologist took over an hour with me and said I do not have parkinsons, I have conversion disorder with cervical stenosis and radicopathy. They are sending me to physical therapy as if that is going to cure anything.
