Well today was my first neuro appt. A very nice man and as I am always anxious about physician appts, that helped me to feel relaxed right away.
He asked a lot of questions and I read from my list that I had with me. Then he did a bunch of tests on my reflexes and sensory stuff. He was very thorough.
He wants me to have an MRI of the cervical spine and brain. I asked him outright if he thought I have a brain tumour as that has been my big concern but he said the tests that he had done on me gave him no concern at all about that and especially as these symptoms have been ongoing for over 2 years now. He also looked into my eyes as I mentioned that I thought I had ON about 18 months ago and he said he is going to schedule some sort of eye test for me and to be honest, I can't remember what he said it was called. One thing that surprised me is that he asked me if I'd had sciatica in my right leg at some point!! Huh?? How on earth did he know that? The answer was definitely yes although it was a number of years ago, about 8 or 9 actually.
So, I am glad the appt is over and maybe now I am a tiny step further towards a possible diagnosis of something. I am not looking forward to the MRI but I know it has to be done.
Thanks for your support. I will be keeping in touch here.
