Hi, I’m looking for help in how to put my self across to my neurologist when I meet her. I’ve been suffering from many symptoms for 22 months which include
tingling tongue, pins and needles in fingers, and legs, bad fatigue, pain behind my eyes, drinks seeming boiling hot when they are not , loud Tinnitus, earache, painful lymph glands, costacondritis , painful and aching feet and hands, stumbling , dizziness, inability to absorb what’s being said to me or the written word when fatigued. A tight band around my chest and throat. My blood tests always come back normal
I have been to see all kinds of doctors who feel it’s central sensitisation and anxiety but I feel strongly they are wrong as I’m never anxious and I meditate and practice mindfulness and have done for years. The only thing I’m offered is to learn mindfulness and antidepressants, which I have refused.
Im really worried that now I’ve finally got to see a neurologist, she will also put all my symptoms down to being all in my mind and also give me no help. I have asked nine times, various doctors for an MRI
Does anyone have any ideas how I can put my self across in a way I will be heard and believed. ?
I would be so grateful for any help and guidance.
