I almost have not heard the term of Neurosis used since I was in collage. I use it often, but nowadays that diagnosis is almost extinct. May I ask, who diagnosed you with conversion neurosis? Was it a therapist, and specifically a Psychoanalytic Therapist? That word comes from Psychoanalysis. Apparently the disorder was very common in Vienna 100 years ago. I think one of the most famous cases involved a woman who was blind. The odd thing was she never tripped over anything in her way, nor did she get injured by bumping into walls. So slowly Dr. Freud realized she wasn't really blind. And since he was a medical doctor, he also could never find anything wrong with her eyes. I'm not sure if he was successful in treating her? He probably was since he wrote about her. So what exactly is being said are conversion symptoms? Do you mean not being able to walk? Again, who made this diagnosis? Is this person treating you with talk psychotherapy? That is the only treatment I know of. I can't swear to this, but I doubt any drugs are being tested to treat this, since it's an old diagnosis that is hardly ever even used. The only drugs I can suggest are the ones used to treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, aka OCD. In Psychoanalysis OCD is a form of conversion neurosis, or at least it's very close to it. If you can afford to go to a Psychoanalytic Therapist, I think that's who you should go to, if the meds don't work. I believe the meds for OCD are some of the SSRI meds. Give them a try, if you haven't already.
I hope you respond to my comments here.
