That's why I'm concerned about this doctor. If it was that easy to get in to see him, maybe he's just not that great. He was awful quick and didn't listen. My mom heard he was really nice and helpful. He seemed to brush me off. Idk. Feeling down a bit.
But, I'm going to just keep notes of any possible symptoms and wait for my next MRI.
Hi, I am sorry your appt. was not what you had hoped for. My first nuero kinda blew everything off and said let's wait and see, blah blah blah..
When I went to my second nuero, my current doc, he was amazed that I had not even been given more testing...
My doc says that my MS seems to be stable and at that point he explained the unpedictabilty of this disease. Together we discussed tx.options and came to a conclusion that even though everything is stable right now..we wanted to keep it that way and we started DMD.
I recommend or suggest speaking with your 1st doc and explain about appt. and ask her if she will still do MRI Octobr vs. waiting to see.
My symptoms somewhat come and go and I can somehow mange to deal with them...
I rather know I am doing something to stop it from progressing vs. waiting to see AND then do something about it...
Remember it is your body and you know when something is not right...I regret waiting to go to another doc sooner but am glad I am with the one I am with. notes are good..Maybe you can call your other nuero to talk about this with them and get their opinion on how they feel your appt. went.
Hi sorry to hear about your continuing limbo. I know how frustrating it can be to wait....wait....and see. My neuro said the same thing. I did keep a fairly accurate timeline of my symptoms... but the dr shrugged most of them off.
He basically had me thinking it was all in my head and I began to think the same thing.
Last night I fell over in the hall way.....
I did consider myself lucky that I didn't get my DX but now I'm not sure LOL.
I hope you get some answers at you next MRI.
Yea, this 2nd opinion MS doc made me feel like my past symptoms were unimportant and not valid. All he wanted to hear is what was wrong that caused my regular doctor to order the MRI. After he heard that my migraines was the reason for the MRI, he almost acted like I was wasting his time talking about symptoms that I have had.
I seriously think he thinks I was making it all up because they saw the lesions. That is not at all how this is. But, by them bringing MS to my attention, I was able to make some sense out of the symptoms I have had the past 5 years. Before this, I had thought I was just clumsy, with migraines, sensitive to pain, Overly tired, heat intolerant, bad circulation in legs to cause them to collapse and go numb, and bad memory. LOL
