I also believe in choice. I also believe in the reward of getting a second opinion. If the dr. you've seen says "probable" PNES, then that is all the more reason to go forward and get another opinion. I suggest you go see an epileptologist at a major University for that 2nd opinion. They know a whole lot more about epilepsy than a regular neurologist. Perhaps they can make a "real" diagnosis of whether you do or don't have E. Either way, you do need to see someone to figure out what is going on. If it's PNES, what's causing it? You need therapy. If it's really E, then you need to get it under control ASAP. Seizures beget seizures. It will only get worse with time.I was referring to my seizure disorder and my family wanting me to get a second
Opinion after witnessing a resent seizure, which I am not wanting to after 1 1/2- 2years after dia of probable PNES .
Under stated threat I have a forced choice to go on my own free will or be taken after family contacts a social worker and goes through process and force me to have testing and second opinion.
My thoughts are not in line with reasonable adults , I believe in choice .
