Re: Update on my situation
Since you are having trouble with your vision, I would ask the doctor to order some Evoked Potential tests before I would do the spinal tap as it is not an invasive procedure and can tell where the eye problems are coming from. Also they have one for nerve conduction, not sure if they can check the face but it is worth asking. The other one is for hearing, I would ask for all of them to be done. Please remember that the doctor is there to SERVE you, ask for tests and insist he give a valid reason for not doing so. You may need to make a stand that this is your quality of life and you want answers or refer you to someone who will get them for you.Don't wait for an appointment call and ask for tests to be set up so that he has the results on next visit.
Best of luck, no forget luck, best of health to you!!!!!
