Jaded neuros...jaded patients.
Good news: Dr F. did a doppler yesterday and the left jugular is working perfectly still, AND there were 5 other doctors observing him while he worked!!! Thank God for them, they give me hope.

My husband wanted to know why he was there....we know all that she shared, gained nothing from the visit, but excessive amounts of stress...

I don't think this is correct. Multiple Sclerosis means multiple scars, scars are lesions, so multiple sclerosis means multiple lesions. In fact, i believe have more than one lesion within the brain or spine is one of the factors necessary for a MS diagnosis.
