Had my first neuro appt yesterdaay....it went well!!! Unusual so i hear!
Well i went in and she was very nice, explained in breif what had been happening and i took my list of symptoms with me! She read the first page and then said hanf on i want to check your MRI you had done at the stroke centre. She said they were no use to her after looking as the MRI of my brain only showed if there was clots and didn't show any of the grey matter? and the neck MRI they did was only of my arteries and showed NO spine on it at all! Weird but she said this sometimes happens. So she has arranged for me to have a brain and full spine MRI with contrast as soonn as she can. It has been 3 months since the onset and she said its usual to do it again anyway.
She ruled out all vit deficiencies and said that i had definately had an EVENT that has caused some swelling in my brain or C1/C2. She certain of it. So she asked if i was on meds and i said no and she said she would discuss this further at the results of my MRI appt.
All in all a very successful appt i would say. I now glad that i not nuts and that she agress that something is going on with me. I am very shaky today and i have been getting numbness in my feet alot and the symptms have also started affecting my right leg aswell, so i said i was concenred about driving etc. She said maybe time to change car from manual to automatic? lol my husband nearly wet himself laughing ! haha but we have discussed it and it could be a possibility if it helps me!
So now its sit back and wait again! but i must admit i feel calmer knowing that i after another physical exam (and she was very thorough!) i am not imagining the symptoms, oh and i get white toes when i get in the bath and she said this was a common MS symptom ! so there you go at least i fall into a catagory ! Will keep you updated as it seems this neuro is a rare one! thanks for listening and all your support, i would have spent many days rocking backwards and forwards in a straight jacket if it wasn't for all your wonderful posts and advice!
Here's to hoping i get some tests done soon !
