I think of Neurologists as the Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory) guys of the doctor world. They just assume you know what they are thinking. I jokingly ask mine to speak to me in English. I had one neurologist hand me my first MRI report and not tell me anything about it.
As far as Alzheimer's my Neurologist told me people with MS usually do not get the same memory issues as Alzheimer's. For us it is as if the computer slows down. You may be forgetful or lose words but not get to the place you do not recognize people or know where you are.
What symptoms are you having or have had?
Thank you for your response. I guess what I wanted, Alex, was for Dr. Vague to review the report WITH me. Probably my fault to not have pressed for details.
He also knows I have serious concerns about Alzheimer's which my dad and his sister suffered with. My memory is going down the tubes.
It would be helpful to know what portion of the brain 'handles' various operations. Like I don't know what each of the frontal lobes are responsible for. But there are lesions in right, middle and left frontal lobes.
Had not known that until I printed out the report myself.
MS is not a clear cut disease. My neurologist is vague too. 20% is a pretty clear precentage. Did you want him to explain your symptoms more?
