Re: Nero update
I agree with Jayhawk, and as we were discussing in another thread- this Neuro either doesnt know beans about MS or he is convinced there is something else wrong....the tests he is ordering are mostly simple and will help point him in another direction, if there is another direction, however based on what you told us, MS shouldnt be ruled out based on what he did do.
Can you get another opinion? There is no reason NOT to have these additional tests- they MIGHT tell you something, but if I were you, Id start a folder of every single test result you get...a journal of when and where you have them done- and be prepared to get another opinon. At least, having those test results youll be able to show someone what was already done and where/ when....and they wont have to be repeated. MRIs are usually repeated in 6 months when they are in the dx stage. Lesions which didnt show this time, might show next time; however had they checked your Cspine and used contrast, they might already be detected.
Stinks to have to feel the way you feel, but you are not alone. Many people have had a run of lousy docs, who dont answer their questions and its not unusual for a diagnosis of any Neurological disease to take up to a year of testing....so, dont think youre alone. I know that doesnt help- but it is a fact.
Keep us posted, ok?
