So I saw the new doctor. He has only been with the clinic for less than 2 weeks and I swear to you he treated me as if I were faking as if I had a choice in what was happening to me. My step mom came with me and she was so upset with what she was hearing come from his mouth. I just got very upset and defensive. Its like these doctors have no idea what is going on...
But for the good news my flare has tamed a lot!!!
I can feel most of my legs and I am not in as much pain. Still in pain when being mobile and trying to do daily chores but its not constant anymore... Its still frustrating because I have more energy than I have had in years and I can't do anything so that really sux but I am just sooo glad that the pain is gone. Apparently my state of mind is a bit altered when I am in pain. I am a wimp when it comes to pain, I admit it. But I promise you this... the pain was comparable to child birth...
I am having an MRI on Monday. Brain MRI with and without contrast and then a cervical and thoracic MRI. After I get my result I am switching to the MS clinic in Milwaukee. I heard they have some wonderful doctors there.. I am excited about
seeing a doctor that only deals with MS.
I saw a physical therapist today. He was great and very concerned that my flares are so severe at such a young age. I told him I was diagnosed at 19 and my first flare was when I was 17. I had gotten vertigo for no reason but they treated me like a drug addict, even though all the tests came back negative for any type of drugs. They told my mom it was ideopathic.... after going to school to be an RN I learned that means they don't have a clue why it happens..
I will keep you updated on the results of the MRI. I should know by the end of next week.
Thank you all for your concern. I was really scared this time. Reality of the disease finally hit me all at once and I kinda had a melt down.
Again Thank you all
