Just wondering if anyone else gets frustrated with their neurologist for dismissing your concerns? I’m seriously considering asking for a transfer to a different consultant as every time I see him he makes me feel fobbed off. He never accepts what I’m telling him is a relapse and us the term “non specific” a great deal.
For example today I related how at the end of Jan I had a few days of extreme stiffness mainly in legs and core, which made standing from sitting, sitting from laying, and walking very difficult (I spoke to the ms nurse at the time). It did improve but I’ve been left with reduced ability compared to prior to this episode, with noticable stiffness in my legs for coula couple of hrs each morning. I’m 38 not 78. He said “hmm, stiffness is pretty non specific and this probably wasn’t a relapse”
Its just frustrating, I am managing but do worry things are progressing, he refuses to offer an MRI as he believes it won’t add anything. I want to feel validated not dismissed. I’m actually thinking of asking to transfer to someone else but fear it will be the same. I end up upset after every appointment and think what’s the point in attending?
What are your experiences? I’m with The Walton Centre.
