I recognise the lost feeling as I spent eons in limbo, then got wrongly diagnosed with PPMS for about 11 years.
I now am diagnosed with a serious and rare condition, which cannot be cured and has a 50% chance of being passed down to my offspring. I hate that part about it most of all. What parent wants to see their child disabled by something they gave them.
Anyway, enough about me…it`s awful when we have to see a doctor who isnt helpful and makes us feel afraid to go to the appointment. But it is great that your GP is on side.
Hang in there chuck and I hope things improve soon.
Ask your GP if it’s possible to be referred to a different Neuro? Failing that is there someone you could take with you for moral support?
Hi Bellaboo, when you go for your neuro appointment take a friend with you, it’s good to have somebody else to talk over what the neuro has said, he’ll have your results & will probably go through them with you if you ask. Try not to worry because that’ll make your symptoms feel worse. Hope it’s not too long before you have some help, your GP sounds excellent
