    Mine checked my peripheral vision (he knew I have a pit tumor). He poked me with pins on both sides of my body all the way from my toes to my head and said "Can you feel this" lol. I had to close my eyes and touch my hand to my nose. I think I had to close my eyes and stand up and balance. Can't remember exactly. A lot of the tests were what I imagine they give to suspected drunk drivers He held up objects and asked me what they were. He told me to remember 3 phrases, asked me what they were like 5 minutes later. I got it right and breathed a sigh of relief... Until he asked me what they were at the very end of the appointment lol.
    So anyways, they'll probably just do lots of simple tests. I was super nervous because I didn't want to mess up on things that were that simple I did mess up of course precisely because I was making myself so nervous (I kept calling a safety pin a paper clip) So just relax and don't worry about it.
