I have a friend who has been diagnosed with a Conversion Disorder. She is unable to speak and experiences symptoms similar to a stroke, such as weakness on one side of her body, less movement in arms and legs, stiffness in fingers, some difficulties swallowing (some drewling). She has had symptoms for almost two years with little remission. Is there anyone else out there who experiences similar severe difficulties? I am interested in learning more about others experiences with Conversion Disorders? What types of therapies are helpful, especially for someone who is having difficulty speaking at all.
