Had a letter from Neuro after “essentially normal” MRI basically saying go away - I will let you have another MRI in six months of you really want one but am unable to explain your symptoms.
She then said her examination pre MRI turned up nothing wrong neurologically except balance even though at the time she told me she was pretty sure I had RRMS and even put this in her letter. to the GP.
She said the neuro physios had only found evidence of some spasticity in my right leg although the physio told me they found balance issues, right sided weakness and other things as well. It is like the neuro doesn’t remember me and has skim-read previous reports in a hurry.
So yes I will book another MRI in 6 months and I am asking my GP for a copy of the physio’s report. I am bewildered by her attitude - “I thought it was MS, can’t prove it at the moment or be bothered to investigate any alternatives so go away.” I though doctors were supposed to investigate symptoms to find out what is causing them? I now walk any distance with a stick, have balance and dizziness problems every day, fall over occasionally, have burning tingling in my left thigh and am now having problems with spasms, cramps and stiffness in my right arm as well as my right leg. Then there is the fatigue, losing words, dropping things frequently and all of that other good stuff. Am I supposed to just live with this happily because she can’t make a quick easy diagnosis. Majorly fed up!
