Functional Neurological Symptoms

Very interesting website on a multitude of symptoms that many of us will suffer with: neurosymptoms.org/#

It is interesting to read some of the peoples stories, who have suffered with vertigo and other neurological symptoms along the way.

I have suffered with many of these symptoms since the age of 18, in my earlier days especially the feeling that my arm (left or right) was somehow not connected to me, it didnt feel like my own, all part of the sensory symptoms described on the site.

Migraine is also talked about and I really believe there is such a close link between migraine and the rest of these neurological symptoms.

This website was fully updated December 2018 and I only noticed it today. Packed with relevant info for MAVers. Few, if any, direct mentions of MAV but it offers explanations people may find reassuring. Migraine is mentioned under “ Sensory Symptoms”. Written by neurologist. Helen

I went searching for this site as a result of reading @elle84’s post on head movement and necks and @aehailey’s question on rocking/visible head tremor. A website I have visited many times in the past and found most insightful. Never really sure where the link if there is one comes between Functional Neurological Conditions and our ‘good old’ MAV. Migraine is mentioned as being another cause of dizziness however it seems to infer FNC occur independently. Whatever there are certainly many similarities. And lots of possible explanations on offer.

Jon Stone’s explanation of PPPD I find increasingly as if that could just be me and many others. Mine started purely with extremely bad vertigo the head pressure coming years later, but that’s another story. Helen
