Patients diagnosed with FND are left in the dark 75% of the time. There has been not enough research into FND to properly treat, and the NHS are not allowed to do basic tests such as an FRMI (Functional MRI). The NHS will only test for things they can treat rather than proving theories. 

Providing patients who have been diagnosed with FND, (particularly cognitive based) , with an FMRI gives them a sense of understanding. The FMRI will prove that their brains are not receiving the correct signals, and thus not functioning “normally”. Those claiming PIP or trying to claim other allowances and help will then have some sort of proof of their disorder. Otherwise we are “just making it up”. 

It is time to start looking at what can be done, rather than what can’t. Research saves lives!
