After excessive MS symptoms, 1 MRI with lesions, & 4 non-neuro diagnoses of MS, the long awaited appt.with a neuro had her look at my MRI for 5 mins., walk in and, w/out ANY further tests, declare I don't have MS-it's JUST anxiety & depression.
I feel VERY dismissed. I had a full write up, (form c/o the MS Society) re: symptoms, time line, etc..., & was NOT PERMITTED to show it to neuro. I have a terrible memory & this was to help during the appt.
I also saw a different Dr.than I was supposed to, & was informed 3x to hurry it up because the neuro I was SUPPOSED to c was in a rush to get somewhere.
I'm still ill, still have a very low quality of life. Should I be as frustrated as I am, or should I accept a dx without any bloodwork, Tesla3 MRI, spinal tap, etc... Despite lesions & debilitating symptoms?
(I posted this as a question, too. I am concerned because, although I'd normally LOVE a non-MS diagnosis, there's very obviously something wrong here, & I don't appreciate being told I'm fine/insane without anyone having the courtesy to actually listen to my symptoms or even check for LYME, etc...)
