I had my yearly visit with my neuro on weds and I’m still thinking about it. I do really like him, out of the 4 neuros my local health board have employed over all my ms years, he’s great. He actually listens to me!
My first neuro was a horrible bar steward, he really was. I hope he’s been struck down with a severe case of crotch rot!! (Not that I’m bitter… )
Anyhoo… back to my nice neuro. He was asking me about the pain in my legs I’ve had for what seems like… urgh forever?! He asked when I first started getting that pain & seemed really interested that it was when I was 13/14 yr old. Spoke about a lot of other symptoms that I started getting then and have stayed with me, developing (& worsening) over the years. He seemed really… excited mibe isny the right word, but animated?? He’s sending me for brain & spinal MRI cos it’s been so long since my first & only scans.
I duno why I’m so happy really cos it’s not like getting the scans is going to tell me anything different. I’m just… I duno…optimistic?? Especially with him asking so many questions about the problems I started experiencing during my teens.
It’s not going to change anything I know, it just feels good to be kind of investigated again I suppose, instead of the standard blurb how’s your ms…blah blah blah - aren’t you walking well - see you in a year - shakes your hand - smiles and says goodbye… whilst turning to write in your casenotes…
Sorry for slevering on. I’m bad for that I know. Long way for a short cut everytime, that’s me!
Peace out x
