The neurologist made a comment to me and the more I think about it, the more annoyed I get. He said that if everything comes back ok from the rheumy then they are really going to be scratching their heads. After he spent 20-30 minutes with me. I mean, come on. My symptoms are not all that unusual. If *I*, a lay person, can do research and find things that fit why in the hell would they be scratching their heads? I know that there is a difference between looking up symptoms, etc online and applying it to real life, but still. I'm an intelligent person. I don't just look up symptoms. If I see something that I can relate to I research the heck out of it - symptoms, progression, real life experiences. I don't say, oh..that fits and then be done with it. I'm having balance issues and my cerebellum (the portion of the brain that control balance) has shrunk. He tells me this and then says, I'm not sure why. My balance issues are mostly on my left side. My nerve issues are on the left side. My eye issues have been with my left eye. Coincidence? I don't think so. Do they give you time to get that all out? No. The thing is, if you go into these specialists and say this is what I think I have, they completely blow you off. So, you have to play their little game, let them scratch their heads and wait. In the meantime, my life is on hold and my symptoms worsen. I want answers. Yesterday. I've been playing this little game for way too long.
