Hello to all,
So, I went and saw my neuro, and took control of my life. He said that there was no other tests that could be done, and that the only conclusion he he looking at is early stages of MS. So I told him, If there were any more tests that could be done, I wouldn't elect to have them done. I told him "lets not try to figure out what the diagnosis is, I want to focus on my symtoms. My symptoms are what drive me nuts, and need to be addressed." He agreed, put me on Baclofen to help with the night spasms and cramps. He upped my paxil dose to help with the fatigue. I go back in 3 months and at that point I will get a repeat MRI. He gave me a note to go back to work full time. So that is wereI am at, and I am pleased. My hubby thinks I need a second opinion and need more testing. I told him you do not live with this body everyday, you have no clue as to what goes though my mind eveyday. I'm tired of the dead ends and just want to focus on symptoms so I can be able to go through a day. Eventually things will come together.
Right now, my right arm in numb w/ pins and needles, fatigue, night muscle spasms w/ cramps, and the annoying vibrations/electricutions every time I move my neck. But these are nt new, and too a point I am getting used to them, and consider tham part of my everyday life, and I'm ok with this.
You all take care, and I will still be here for all the support that you graciously give. I thank you all for that.
