I was diaignoised with ms yrs most of time until flare up then after few days in hospital get strength back.last flare up saw new ms Dr he said 1st primary diaignosed functional disorder 2nd primary diaignoised relapsing/remitting ms. This has confused me as he made me feel I was putting it on also while I was in my swallow got very bad. What did he mean with 1st diaignose
No way to say what the doctor meant without talking with him.
However, a functional disorder usually means that it is reversible, not permanent, and there is no progressive pathology as one has in MS.
Some incorrectly use the term for things like somatatization, which is part of a psychiatric problem.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
