I tried to get my neuro report from Addenbrookes hospital from approx 33 years ago…no MRI then.
Had lots of electrodes on head, arms legs etc and other tests plus consultant exam and also history taken but I was never actually told to my face I had MS…what happened was that Addenbrookes being a teaching hospital there were about 6 students with my consultant. After all my tests and the examination and neuro specific tests they all went out of the room and discussed the findings.
The walls were paper thin as they had made 2 exam cubicles from every 1 and I could hear everything.
The consultant questioned the students and eventually asked if anyone had thought of MS
He then told them that was his dx. I also clearly heard him say it was not his policy to advise patients of dx at that stage otherwise they would all go away and wait for a wheelchair !
I never saw a nuero again and after a few years everyone thought it had been wrong dx
I would like to find out exactly what the report to my then gp said but have been told those records are too old ?
Anyone know if that is true…
