Conversion Disorder?

Posted by bookgurl99 on May 9, 2002, at 21:41:50

Due to some recent severe problems with memory, concentration, and vision, I was evaluated by a battery of medical doctors (internist, neurologist, neuropsychologist, endocrinologist, etc.) for possible organic causes of these problems. Neuropsych testing revealed that my working memory is low, but that my overall memory is better than that of 90% of the population. MRI and CAT scans revealed that my brain is in great shape.

So, I'm faced with a diagnosis of severe anxiety, possibly a conversion disorder to explain my symptoms.

My doctor is putting me on Zoloft, having me go to therapy (which I was in), and go back to my regular life.

I'm relieved to have no organic cause for my problems. But how do I combat this problem? I'd really like to feel like my normal self again. Any advice, guys?
