I saw the neuro today at UAB. He asked me a couple of quick questions and said he was going to listen to my heart, but he had the scope at my chest for about a second. He may have heard 2 beats in that time.
He just flat out told me that he didn't think I was having seizures, but didn't know what was causing my problems and that we could spend millions of dollars trying to figure it out if I wanted too!!! He said he didn't think I needed and EEG, but he would do one if I really wanted him too, but he didn't think it would do any good. He acted like I was wasting his time. Needless to say, I was very ticked off when I left his office. It is a 2 1/2 hr drive each way and wasted the whole day to hear that.
I asked him if I could drive and he said yes, so I will start back driving based on what he said.
I know my Rheumy will not be happy about what he said and did today, but I will let her deal with him..I don't plan on going back to him again.
Tks for all your help and support. Take care and God Bless You All.
