I just got back from my appointment with my neuro.
For some reason, I neglected to mention my history of lead poisoning to her, but we discussed it today. She referred both me and my son to Yale New Haven Hospital's Occupational and Environmental Medicine Group and we have an appointment for next Thursday. If I do have lead in my system, this could explain the brain lesions and cognitive problems that can't be explained by degenerative disc disease.
She prescribed Tramadol for pain.
I also asked her OT about a small lump in my mouth below my tongue that I noticed 3 weeks ago. She says that I have to have that checked out. I called my PCP, who is out today, and expect a call from her on Monday.
