Neuro visit--------Dr doesn't want to put me through an Lp, MRI doesn't show any white spots at all, he said great memory area of my brain, spine looks good too. I do have a line showing an injury or minor stroke in the left cerebellum, he doesn't think that is the issue with balance and dragging my R leg. He will not rule out Parkinson's but doesn't want me to dwell on it as there is nothing further to do for testing. He would like me to---laugh here----LOL walk with two ski poles on uneven surfaces, as he thinks this may retrain/help maintain my balance. It actually sounds logical to me. He does not like the idea of a cane as it is only on one side. So again no real answers...but he said there is something that is keeping my brain from keeping my body in balance, he just does not know what, and feels further test will just put me through too much.
Sleep Dr Visit---no seizures, I acted out as usual in my sleep but the Rem disorder is controlled at home so no further meds. I do have "posts" which show migraines. I have restless leg in the left leg only. Yet overall slept well. Except I had more than normal daytime sleepiness so she is giving me Provigil for that.
Nobody needs to see me anytime soon-------so here I sit in Limbo land, for what feels like forever.
