I have an appt with a neurologist on December 7th. I initially scheduled the appointment to discuss my migraines, which have gotten worse over the last year. However, I know she specializes in MS, which is a benefit because I am concerned about some symptoms that would seem to be MS like. I need to make sure when I go into this appointment I am well prepared, with all the information I can give her for an accurate picture of my health. I have contacted other doctors and had them forward medical records, including MRI's and emergency room visits.
What else do i need to get together? Is there some sort of template or something I can use to help me accurately track my symptoms? I think I have a good handle on it, then when I read something else, I realize there was something, another symptom, I forgot. Or something that has bothered me that I had just chalked up to getting older. Or maybe I'm just going crazy!
When I go in can I say to the dr, "Hey, I'm concerned about my migraines, but I'm also concerned about these other issues that make me worry about MS". Or does that come off as crazy and hypochondriac-ish?
