It is so frustrating. I’ve had mixed messages from my neuro. ? episode of spinal inflammation (MRI showed non-specific sub-cortical lesions).
My neuro told me to he might consider a LP or EVP. Then he said it was all fine and I just needed to get on with it at the next review and when I asked about LP and EVP he said no that won’t help.
I had hug and ?TN type symptoms and saw him again after he repeated my MRI which was stable. He said all stable just get on with it after asking me if I was nervous.
I now have a review in ayear with a plan to possibly repeat MRI with him.
On one hand he’s taking me serious as he isn’t discharging me and repeating MRI’s but on the other he’s told me to ignore and get on and then asked if I’m nervous. He also hasn’t explained why no LP/EVP and I have no help with symptoms.
I’m due for a second opinion middle of august now because I was sick of getting no explanation or help.
Your consultation sounds somewhere in the middle. Your neuro believes somethings wrong - they wouldn’t waste money on an MRI otherwise and is helping you with the symptoms so I would maybe stick it out.
Its certainly not easy though. Really feel for you - I know the feeling of not being listened to.
