I have not been diagnosed with a conversion disorder, although I have wondered if I do have one.

As a child, I fainted, usually unexpectedly and without reason.
Same. I have a long history of fainting with no known cause.

I also have a family member who has pseudo-seizures and I have double vision that had a sudden onset a couple years back with no known cause.

Is chronic pink eye something you see an infectious disease doctor for?
Not anymore. To me it means I am seeing something my nervous system cannot process. I use colloidal silver mixture as an eye wash (which has worked well for me although this time it is a tougher go), I work on serious self care, I try to get a good amount of sleep, and try to get out to 'see things' that are peaceful and beautiful.

In my opinion and based on the healers I have had over the past decade, we don't know much of anything about how our nervous system affects our organs. There is a whole culture out there whose focus is on how adverse situations can affect our organs and different parts of our body. For me it is a given that infections can occur due to an overload of the system due to adverse situations. I just need to work harder right now at decreasing my stress levels to get my nervous system back to a more neutral state.

Moving has been a massive trauma for me since I was an infant. It's a given that my body is going to respond. And infections are one of the ways I have learned my body is trying to tell me to look around and see what I need to adjust.

Just because your body is having an immune response (as verified by increased white blood cell counts in bloodwork, for example) it does not mean you actually have an infection caused by some external organism.

In my twenties, decades before I knew about PTSD, I ran a fever every day for more than a year. I could work and all that, but every day I registered a low grade fever that lasted most of the day. Blood counts were occasionally wonky. Saw the infectious disease specialist, who tried several antibiotics with no success. He had no clue. My doctor had no clue. One day, it stopped.

I believe that is possible for some but not the case in myself.
