For 4 months now I have had neuro type symptoms that are awful ( numbness, pins and needles, needing a wee all the time, vertigo etc) 4 weeks ago I saw a private neuro. I ran through my symptoms and he basically diagnosed anxiety after saying he could run tests like mri etc but based on my anxiety issues he didn’t. No tests required he said. I kept my NHS app as I wasn’t totally convinced.
So after 15 weeks saw the NHS neuro, he had a student with him. Went on notes about symptoms made by gp ( pins and needles etc) and seemed to really latch onto bladder probs. He laughed when he said ‘your notes show you are worried about ms’.
He examined me and I don’t know why but I felt a prat because I kept getting confused, the extra person in there put me off. He asked me a lot of questions about exercise etc. He said my neuro exam was ‘reassuringly normal, but he will send me for an mri which isn’t likely to show much’ If it is clear then he said they will look into psychological causes. No other physical causes were mentioned.I found the appointment rushed. I will have an mri within four weeks. The neuro said 15 weeks was too long to wait and he didn’t want me to have these worries. I really hope the scan is clear, my ms fears are really kicking in again. It isn’t so much ms more this perpetual limbo, it has been so hard.
I don’t know what to make of it all really I am just sick of this to be honest. I forgot to ask about how long results will take. Will I get told if it something bad by post ?
Anyway just updating.Thanks for reading.
