I'm puzzled by the motivation for your asking this specific question. If this uncommon diagnosis has been made with regard to your own health problems, I'd hope your neurologist would have taken time to fully explain to you its meaning and significance : but I can't think of how you would need the ICD10 code numbers !  This sounds like the sort of question I occasionally get from a student working on their homework !
Codes like ICD10 and DSM5 are used for research and administrative purposes, but usually of no actual use to patients or their families.
If you have some very specific way in which you need to use such codes, do post a fresh question explaining this, and I could then try to find a way to be more helpful.
