Went to a neuro doctor yesterday who specializes in Guillian Barre Sndrome & CIPD. He spent almost 2 hours going over the entire summer & checking me over from top to bottom. He administered some very basic neuro-psychiatric tests, along with the usual neurological exam. I walked out of the office feeling heard. In the meantime, he will be doing some "down & dirty" research & will be calling me within the next week or so. Additionally, while I feel I'm getting better to a degree, neuro dr feels I need more in home help. But he would like me to start physical therapy at one of the nearby clinics so I can get hydro therapy & other treatments that aren't available here at home. My biggest concerns when I walked in the door is my memory issues, my inability to walk with-o a cane or walker (gait & balance issues), & this incessant headache. I can't seem to get the cycle of pain regulated. Neuro dr would like to see me off the prednisone (I'm backing him on this one) & to find more "user friendly" pain control techniques, if at all possible. I'm looking forward to hearing his opinion (my GP called this neuro dr in to ask if he would make time in his schedule to take me on. He kindly agreed & got me in within a week of that call.) So, not much of an update. Keep a good thought if you would.
