Bit of an update. Phone call from hospital & neurologist. My thoracic spine MRI has came back clear, as were my most recent blood tests.
The neurologist wants me to have another MRI scan done of my neck, due to the ongoing symptoms which so far haven’t been explained by results of MRI scans. I should get an appointment for this in a month or two.
The neurologist want’s to see me at his clinic again, but this has a waiting list of many months. He is not keen to do a lumbar puncture yet, due to covid 19 and due to wanting to see what the neck MRI shows. My previous neck mri scan showed herniated discs at c5/c6 level, which the neurosurgeon didn’t want to do anything with. My fear is the MRI scan will show that again, and I get bumped from neurology, back to neurosurgery, who’ll rapidly ping me back to neurology again…
Work wise, things are escalating. The more senior union rep is now on my case (who has personal experience of neurological symptoms). I suspect things will come to a conclusion within the next couple of weeks, which will more than likely be ill health retirement.
