After ripping my hair out at the prospect of having to wait 12/13 weeks for a neuro appointment i decided to pay privately for a neuro consultation (£150) I went to my neuro appointment last night less than 36 hours after my initial enquiry. He did the normal things like collect a bit of history from me, tapping of kness and elbows. I was dissapointed that he did not ask me to touch my nose as i had been practising this move!!..
He is referring me for a CT/MRI brain and spine. This will be done in or around the 3rd sep . The delay in this is because he is on annual leave. I dont feel bothered by this, despite my previous inpatience because i have a date now to ‘look forward to’ and i now feel that something is getting done. He also said that he hoped that by the end of september he hoped that we could draw a conclusion as to what the problem is…If i had not been able to go down this line i could have still been waiting for the initial NHS appointment.
£150 is a lot of money to us but i feel it is money well spent as waiting 12/13 weeks would have cost more to my health and well being.
