Thanks for the reply... I've heard that Neurologists are so smart that they are just plain weird... lol... like the reeeeaaalllly smart people are almost "crazy"? Maybe that's part of it.. I'm sure that's not the case for all of them as there have to be a few GOOD apples in the bunch.. lol..
The funny thing is that I wasn't able to get in to see another Neuro and ended up going back to this one for my spinal tap.. I brought my friend who is a nurse at the hospital here in town so she could drive me home and she knows this Neuro very well as she sees her every day since she works in the stroke unit there...(sorry, long sentence).. lol..
Well once the Neuro saw me with my friend.. (I don't actually know if that really had anything to do with it) she was a lot nicer to me.. She did an awesome job on my spinal tap, I didn't feel a thing and never even got the spinal tap headache that everyone talks about
So I guess I'll stick it out with her and see if my treatment continues to be nice. I go back on the 26th to find out the results of my spinal tap..
But heck.. I sure hated how she made me feel on our first visit, and I SURELY wasn't going to bring it up with her before she had to stick a needle in my back.. lol..
