I’ve just received my date to see the neurologist. It’s in June. I can’t help stewing on certain concerns!
Having read so many of the threads on here, I can see that seeing the neurologist does not necessarily mean I’ll get sent for an MRI automatically! It looks like a lot of people had to fight for the right tests!
This makes me quite scared, as I have had to fight tooth and nail for the right treatment of my mental health and I just don’t think I’ve got any fight left in me! I’m worried I’ll see the neurologist and he’ll just send me away.
i also understand that under NHS guidance, they have to see at least 2 lesions on the MRI, even though with private healthcare, if only one lesion is seen, they’ll still send you for a lumbar puncture and often make an MS diagnosis this way.
I would be very interested to hear people experiences or any information you may have.
Ps-my symptoms are: very bad confusion,using the wrong words, very forgetful (for example I often can’t remember where I live or what my house looks like), short concentration span, sudden numbness down both legs that causes me to fall over, pins & needles in hands and other stuff that I can’t remember right now.
thanks so much in advance xx
