My 30 year old sister lost her vision, memory and sometimes

Customer Question

My 30 year old sister lost her vision, memory and sometimes loses motor and sensory skills on the right side of her body. Her vision loss episodes started in Apr of this year, and initially lasted only hrs, then days, then weeks. The last episode started Dec 3, with the amnesia onset on Dec 19. She regained her vision on Dec 31, but just lost it again this morning.

We have been to numerous ERs, doctors, including neurologists and opthamologists. We've had two MRIs done and a host of other tests. All the test results came back normal, with no metabolic cause to her condition. Most of the drs we've seen believe it's conversion disorder and recommended we see a psychiatrist asap. I've had a lot of trouble finding one who would take on her case. We're lookng for one in the Pasadena / San Gabriel Valley area. Please help.
