I saw neuro yesterday. He was going to discharge me but after seeing me decided not - I shall be reviewed in 12 months time (I could spit! LOL)
I told him about my painful eye, blurred & double vision and loss of colour.
I told him about the tightness in my ribs and poor walking.
My speech, as always, was slurred. Honestly I sound and stagger like an old lush
I even asked could this be MS. He said no but he could see that it looked similar to R&R MS but it definitely wasn’t. I’d feel more confident if I had had VEP, LP and/or spinal MRI rather than just his word.
Apparently I have “stroke symptoms - cause unknown” and I am one of 5 patients on his list who present the same.
I cried this morning - I rarely cry - sheer frustration.
In a day or so I know I shall pick myself up & off to my GP - who is also concerned.
But as I say, at least I wasn’t discharged !!
