Does a person with Psychogenic...
Does a person with Psychogenic Movement Disorder need to continue seeing a neurologist, or is a psychologist/psychiatrist all that is needed? My original neurologist says he does not need to follow me since I've been diagnosed with this and the world reknowned movement disorder neurologist keeps having me return for followups? He is in Houston, TX and I am in Nebraska. It's very expensive for me to travel that far and can't afford to keep it up. If I need to be followed by a movement disorder neurologist, is there any in Omaha, NE that specializes in this that I may go to?

outpatient psychotherapeutic and psychiatric follow up should be fine. if there is a neww problem at some point in the future they should be able to pick up on it and let youknow if they think it may be beneficial to continue seeing a neurologt.
as long as youre stable and there havent been any recent changes you probably are fine to try just that.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
