Someone started a thread in the general forum about MS specialists, and I stated my belief that they don't exist. How could they? They don't know what causes the illness, aren't sure about the treatment, sometimes they don't know when to make a diagnosis (because the signs just aren't conclusive...)....anyhow, like you said, they specialise in what drugs to prescribe. My husband also prefers a general neurologist. I don't need to argue the point, I think if they have sense, people will come around to see the specialists for what they are.
