Neuro appointment - what do i expect?

Postby ames » Mon Dec 09, 2013 1:15 pm

Hi

I havent posted in a while, over all ive been quite good - now back at uni on a physically and mentally demanding course and of course I have that inevetable flare up with trying to jugle that, 3 children and working.

But this time was different, I almost competely lost my vision, over the course of the following two weeks it kept dipping out, id loose pheriphral vision and what i could see was rippling worse in my left eye , they though migranes but im still not right, its like im looking out of a fuzzy bubble.
My muscle spasms have been worse along with the other fibro annoyances I have, like my legs are heavier I also have a weaknes in my left side and that has been worse to.

so, My lovely Dr has referred me to a neurologist on Wednesday, only I have no idea what to expect. Are they going to be dismissive- I mean it took me years to get the fibro diagnosis, I have have wrote down my normal sympotons of the fibro i have and whats changed.

I fear they are now querying MS, and depending on this appointment means I may or may not loose my place onthe course.

Will they tell me then if they think MS is a possible explination ?

Thank you

They will listen to symptoms and if they feel it could be linked to MS then they can send your for an MRI this can in most cases detect MS.

I hope all goes well for your appointment :fingerscrossed:
