symptom list

Hi I know this may sound daft but could someone help in telling me how you prepare a symptom list for neurologist as I have an appointment to see neurologist on Thursday due to having a spect scan come back showing patching??? On 2 parts of my brain, I just really want to be prepared, thankyou in advance.

Avoid a long list or you risk being labelled as ‘polysymptomatic’ which can raise suspicion that your illness is ‘functional’. Perhaps concentrate on the more chronic ones.

I just did a list by date of starting/me noticing it of my symptoms. When we got to the appointment, I didn’t hand it over immediately, I used it to help me answer the neuro’s questions about when things began, then offered it to him at the end of the conversation.
