After 16 months of continually progressing symptoms and being referred to many different people. After many blood tests and an MRI of my spine to discover I did not have a trapped nerve, I have finally had my neurologist requested MRI of my head. The radiographers have said the results will be available in 10-14 days but my follow up appointment with my neurologist is not until October! I’m hoping to be able to ring up his secretary in a couple of weeks when he should definitely have the report and try to bring the appointment forward, but I know how busy he is and how scarce his appointments are.
I know that the scanner is a 1.5T scanner (same as most NHS scanners) and that they did T1, T2 and Flair scans.
Really hoping that they find a reason for my progressive left sided numbness and weakness.
Have other people had much luck with moving their neurologist appointments forward? I don’t think I can wait until October for results that I know will be available in June! The Amitriptyline I take, helps with the symptoms but they are still there lingering in the background. At 29 years old with an 18 month old toddler, I need to know what’s wrong with me!
Thanks for listening.
