New Neurologist

Hi everyone,

A week ago last Friday I seen a new neurologist, he has taken over my old ones cases and just to get a catch up with me. So he has noticed the my eyes aren’t responding the way they should and identified what nerves are effected also noticed some other things have changed so I’m going back this Friday for an MRI to check for changes and already got an appointment to go back to see him.

My last Neuro just wrote me off, this guy seems actually interested, so I’m happy, he’s also really interested in my physio and not losing anything more than I need to. So I’m a happy girl, so often we see Doctors even specialists who are uninterested in us.

Hope everyone is doing well, and plans for a good week ahead.

Hugs to everyone

I found this really interesting. Yesterday I saw my fourth neurologist in ten years. I hadn’t seen one at all for the last three years. Like you I felt he was actually interested in me.

In addition, he’s changed my original diagnosis of SPMS (based on an episode of double vision two years before anyone considered it might be MS) I always doubted this decision, as my deterioration has been steady and unceasing.

Now he tells me in his opinion it’s Primary Progressive, not great news, but I feel strangely relieved.
