conversion disorder

Postby jimmylegs » Mon Mar 14, 2011 10:16 am

i just saw an outright shocking video (circulating fb) of a young lady dealing with conversion disorder. it looks nasty. i never heard of it so i looked it up and it's considered a MENTAL ILLNESS.
one look and there is no way that's just mental. jeez it's got magnesium written all over it. especially if there's a stress connection. i feel sick.
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
