Hi. I'm Esri. (ehz-re) I was diagnosed with Functional Movement Disorder (aka Functional neurological disorder) this year for my tics, but it just doesn't feel right for what I'm experiencing and what I have read about it. I was also diagnosed with anxiety and depression last year as well as this mystery thing that they just labeled as "adjustment reaction." I am not sure as to what else I may have because as of right now I'm broke and also there aren't many doctors/specialists near me. I live in a secluded farm/college town

Depression

    I also live in a rural area. Whenever my family wanted to look into something for me and see a specialist we had to drive 2 hours or something. It's really tough. What kind of unaddressed symptoms do you have?

      All I have are tics, suppressable, felt before they happen, simple and complex tics. In fact when I saw the physical therapist that I was supposed to go to she told me that she couldn't help me because I wasn't exhibiting the symptoms that I was supposed to. Just does wonders for the feeling like I'm a faker for it...

    the only other condition I personally know of that involves tics is turrets (my phone won't stop auto correcting that, I'm giving up. Hopefully you know what I mean) but I'm sure theres a lot that have it as a symptom. If this diagnosis doesn't describe what you're feeling right I'd totally keep pursuing the issue. And you're not faking anything, you were just sent to the wrong person.

      sorry for the late reply. But yeah. My neurologist was making it sound like the only two things that I could possibly have are either Tourette's or FND. She even gave me a packet in case I got confused between the two but it just made me realize how much more of the stuff on the Tourette's side I related with other than the mostly male demographic and symptom onset between ages 7-10. She told me neither have tests to be positive on if I had them or not and just labeled me with one.
