Hey, its been a while since i have come on here...was sick and busy moving for the last few months but im back...for now
Anyway, so I just moved to Brockville Ontario which is close to ottawa and now have to be referred to a neurologist in ottawa. I have a nurse practitioner here who mentioned referring me to Dr. Freedman in Ottawa. He's an ms specialist but his reviews on rate md's kind of scare me away from him. Has anyone on here from the ottawa area ever seen him? if so whats he like? Is there another neurologist i should maybe ask for?
another little bit of info. I ended up going back on depo(progesterone) because I was too busy worrying about gallbladder issues to have to deal with my periods(it was confirmed during surgery in may that i do have endometriosis). Anyway a couple of weeks after I started taking the depo my neurological symptoms disappeared. No speech problems, vision problems, memory problems, vertigo, etc(except for the odd occasion). Now after i get my gallbladder removed im gonna try to go off depo again to see what happens. I just find it very odd that when I'm on it im fine. but when off of it i am pretty much handicapped
. One symptom that has stayed around tho is the swallowing problems...holy crap i almost choke everytime i eat...its horrible
Any suggestions on that would be helpful as well...i dont want to have to be on progesterone my whole life(i want to have kids).
