I recently went to a neurologist for my arm shaking violently in the morning and odd vibrations throughout my body. I also mentioned headaches and dizzy spells.

His nurse did the evaluations and I had a mri. They just said the arm shaking was an benign inherited tremor that will probably get worse as I get older. eyes
They referred me to an ENT for the dizziness, because my ears ring too.

Afterwards I requested my records for my personal use. This is where I become absolutely livid! mad

After each exam test the nurse did she said I was embellishing my symptoms!

She was calling me a liar! Grrrrrrrrrr!

P.S....The nuero wrote that I had white matter in my brain. I looked up the description of the type he wrote and discovered it is common in people with SLE.

Oh hon, i'm sorry.
 
I would hope that you could talk to your dr and complain, unless you don't think that your dr would listen.
 
I can't remember if you're on disability or not, if you are not then that will cause you a denial if you apply for your SSDI. You need to figure how to get that off of your records or it will come back to haunt you.

I'm in the process of the hearing stage.
He was a new doctor that I found myself. I'm not planning to report my visit to the lawyer or SSD. I'm not going back for anymore visits either.

How rude! Some people need to walk a mile in our shoes - then they wouldn't be so quick to judge. I would have said something to her as it isn't her job to diagnose people's illness's.
