Seen neurologist this morning, he was very casual and didn’t make anything out of my symptoms, shocking! He thinks my symptoms are not related to each other and not severe enough to be ms, however, just to assure me he is sending me for brain MRI and nerve conductivity test ( I decided to do it privately as I cannot wait in my current state of mind), he doesn’t see the necessity to send me for anything urgent… What is the protocol, are they supposed to tell if they suspect MS or are they supposed to tell us it is not until they see a proof, brains scan etc, just to make us feel better? He just didn’t seem at all concerned, even though I failed my vertigo test ( he asked me to close my eyes and walk in the spot, I ended up on the front wall), but it is not his life on steak. What should I make out of this visit, he wrote everything down, he doesn’t think my horrible stomach rumbling for the last week is anything to do with anything, my pins and needles don’t last long enough, my numbness at night is nothing to do with ms,just my nerves and position of sleeping, my slight vertigo is to do with my ears, what do you think?
I know I will not be convinced until my scan comes back clear but somehow I don’t feel reassured after to day’s visit at all, do the doctors lie until they know for sure not to worry us???
