I was discharged from the hospital today. I went in on Sunday because I was unable to speak or move after I woke up. This lasted for approx. 6hrs straight before I could even slur out one word. I was afraid that I had another stroke. I was admitted for observation. The neurologist came in and told me there was no physical findings that would have caused this to happen to me. She said that it was conversional disorder r/t stress and anxiety. Not sure that i agree. Once she found out that I had lupus she said it was the cause and sometimes you dont have to be stressed for this to happened. I had another episode while i was in there. Not sure of what is happening to me. They gave me IV steriods and I starting feeling better. The Internist told me that I had inflammation of the brain. So who do you believe. I asked to be discharged feeling that I was bringing this on myself. Am i really seeking attention. I had no control over what happened to me. I tried to fight what I felt coming on but it was over powering. I couldn't anything but my head. I tried to open my mouth to speak but it felt like it was waited shut. Mystery.
