I am a new member from england called Julie. I have been ill for 4 years with a motor conversion disorder. It has been hard to cope with the bizarre symptoms at times. Last year my mood was very up and down so soduim valproate was prescribed which has helped to stabilise my mood and surprisingly helped the movements and myoclonic jerks as well. Unfortunately its not working quiet so well since October but i am always worse in the winter. Also when i increase my activity levels the movements get worse. I would like to know if there is anyone else who has had these experiences, its hard to find information . i have met a couple of people in hospital with strange conditions and it has helped to have them to talk to. i think it is beneficial to share experiences and support with others, especially mental health issues.So I hope I can be of help .
