Hi Molly, I really think you should push for an MRI if you can they can tell a lot from that. I put all the things that had occurred and I could remember on a time line and gave it to the doctor. You need to start keeping a diary so that you dont forget things. The treatment is controversial but there were trials carried out which showed the DMD's reduced the number of attacks by a third, the only controversy I can see is that there are side effects which ou get with the drugs but these are not as bad as the after effects you get with attacks. What do i do to cheer myself up?......you are not going to be impressed but i have a glass of red wine and a cigarette, i figure if i'm going to go i will go happy. I love your name too, not so keen on mine ha ha. Ruby X
