Well it seems that this last visit with the "MS Specialist" was a waste of time and money.
Lysha was scheduled as the last patient of the day at 4:00. The doctor didn't make it in to see her until about 5:40 and after about 15-20 minutes of a cursory exam, she proceded to tell her that it was just the residual effects of the ear infection that Lysha had earlier this year. about 6 months earlier! She proceded to tell her that she didn't have MS.
The nurse practitioner had done a more thorough exam while Lysha waited. She had said that Lysha had pronounced "Optic Nystagmus", however when the Dr. did it, she did it in just a few seconds and said there was nothing there.
We just can't help but feel that we just got wammied by a Doc that really wanted to go home, but she did say that Lysha definitely does not have MS. Lysha is supposed to go to her regular neuro on the 31st, do we bother with that appointment? I am just really disappointed right now, this doc came highly recommended from a couple of other ppl we know with MS. Lysha is really down, even if she won't admit it.
Thanks for letting me vent,
When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
