I have recently dealt with a seizure disorder case in which the individual had been mistakenly labeled with a conversion disorder by a neurologist based upon his subjective observations and without objective confirmation by a video EEG. I am posting this comment as I am now aware of several other individuals like him who were misdiagnosed in this manner- a video EEG showed that each had a valid seizure disorder. Lesson learned- if you are told that you suffer from psychogenic seizures or a conversion disorder due to your seizure-related symptoms, please demand confirmation by a video EEG as it has been the standard of care regarding such issues for many years now. Special note- for those of you in the Gulf Coast area, the Seizure Clinic at the University of Alabama-Birmingham is a superb facility.
