I just came out of a 7 day hospital stay (3 of which I was intubated and sedated) with a Dx of Psycogenic Seziures&migraines. ( I had dozens of seziures) This is all really scarry. they say it is something supressed in my subconcious and my body's way of manifesting/dealing with what ever is causing it. I have not been abused in any way, or been through any tramua, but I have dealt with Depression/anxiety for years, so I feel it was an accumlation of stressers and after dealing with several illness in a short time, my body just went hay-wire.
Not many professionals know much about this, and i will begin therapy Friday. my therapist says he has "heard of it, but will be having to do research".
I was just wondering if anyone else dealt with this, or knows much about it.

Hi Michelle,
I dont have alot of knowledge on this condition but I do know that the seizures are caused by emotional stress and they are also real and not ''put on or faked''.
I found a couple of sites for you too look at that may help you.  The first one is a girl's own experiences of this condition and the second is a site with some information.
Hope this helps you and you feel better soon.
Take care
