I was just looking up online about autoimmune disease and the Lord led me to a site Autoimmune encephalitis alliance. Ive been searching since 2014 what happened to me because after i came back from a womens church cruise and my daughter brought over my new granddaughter i was holding her and thank God i gave her back when i did because only thing i can remember is i fell back. And so i had have so many doctors tell me things that just didn’t add up to me. So i would ask questions of my family, friends and even other people who saw me fall and when i try to explain things i knew to my doctors they wanted me to think i was crazy. So when i stubbled onto this website everuthing l have been going through others had the same experience where some doctors would just say it was a mental disorder. So a doctor at Duke did some research because she was seeing people were going through the same thing and getting the same response so she has written a book on autoimmune encephalitis. And now they are trying to educate doctors. B ecause instead of a disease they want to clasify it as bioplar, schizophrenia and even some cases as dementia because of the mental reactions. I was just hopping around praising the Lord a long awaited answer. I also found out there are not many doctors who trat this, it seems like only 2 in the mayo clinic but it might be more since they are educating students as well as current doctors. So in 1997 when they diagnosed me with encephalitis and then in 2014 it was autoimmune encephalitis could it be the same but a continual thing? I guess i will have to do some more searching so i can also spread the word and get the help l need before i can’t get completely over along horrify journey. Its a disease and not a mental disorder.
