I am going to a new dr tomorrow and I'm really nervous and scared, I have heard from a lot of people that while he is a good dr he is. Very rude and not very caring toward patients I hope that he can help me in some way and is a decent dr.Had symptoms show back up this passed week and I really hope he will be able to tell me something. Was told he is the best MS dr in the city. I will hopefully be able to update after.
Thanks for the reply. I was told in the ER 5yrs ago I may have MS which I know I have to do a lot of tests ect before it's determined. But I got worried when my doctor actually got things moving which none of my others have In the past. Either way when it's all done whatever it is I'll be sure to update.View Thread
I haven't been here in a long time. Still don't know anything. Friday I went to my dr for a normal check up, when he was done his nurse left the room, which was odd because usually she stays because I have a male dr. He said he saw things he didn't like! He asked what my Nuro or primary dr's have done and I told him nothing since everything is "normal" well he said that wasn't good enough and left the room and called a Nuro in the city and she is supposed to call me and set up a date and time to come in. Now I'm starting to freak out a bit. I'm waiting on lab results as we'll. anyone else deal with dr's who don't try and figure things out?View Thread
all my other symptoms are documented with my old dr.. i have since switched dr,s because he blew me off as if nothing is wrong, i don't know exactly whats wrong but something is,if nothing was i wouldn't have had 4 ER dr's tell me i need to get tested for ms ASAP but again my dr blew me off.4 yrs now i am for sure going to call my new dr (got a new one a yr ago) and hopefully he will be more willing to listen to me more than the last guy.
I have still yet to be diagnosed 2 weeks ago i had 3 "new" things happen wondering if these are MS symptoms.. 2 weeks ago i woke up with vertigo, it was horrible! i couldn't stand/sit ect for 3 days,after that i thought i could do small things ie: help my 5 yr old get dressed for school, ended up with a massive headaches, still have them everyday but they are getting better, and lastly i am now having numbness in my back, it was happening 2 or 3 times a week but now its everyday off and on are these symptoms i should be more worried about now?my balance issues are still awful, i have fallen, walked into concrete stairs and thought i was walking "up them" and my legs wouldn't "work", i am scared since things are getting worse and i still know nothing View Thread
thanks for the reply. i have been dealing with everything but the falling for 3 yrs i have had 2 MRI'S and they didn't show anything and my dr basically blew me off. i can't afford the cost for another MRI,the last two cost me 2000 out of pocket.I will definatly be looking into a neurologist, i will start looking tonight.View Thread
I'm not sure if this is a symptom of MS, I have not been diagnosed yet but i have had 4 E.R dr's tell me my symptoms are MS like. anyway i have a new symptom pop up and it's awful! i started getting numbness in my hands and it moves up my arm then i get dizzy and everything is all foggy. last week i was outside and all the above happend,the dizziness went away so i just kept on walking(bad idea) i started to go up the stairs and it was like my feet would not move at all(THIS IS THE NEW SYMPTOM) but my brain was saying walk! luckily i caught myself but scraped up my leg pretty good. after that happend i felt "off" for a couple days. could that be a symptom of MS? also writing anything is getting harder i can write a couple sentences then i have to quit because then my writing isn't that legible anymore.
