From this study (6 months ago):
I have short term memory loss every single day. It has yet to get any better. And my procedure was done more than two weeks ago!
From this study (2 years ago):
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.
