Some Feedback Please

Postby Gypsy124 » Wed Aug 15, 2012 4:32 am

I've been seeing a neurologist since May. He did all sorts of scans, blood work, & EEG & all is "unremarkable". What is remarkable are all these symptoms that are increasing in frequency & duration. Balance. Had to start using a cane 3 days ago. As of last night even with the cane I still need to lean on something for my other side. Immediate memory loss. Forgetting words & how to type words. Head tingling at times & also weakness...1st just in holding something; now all over weakness & extreme fatigue. Trouble speaking at times, loss of focus...the list goes on. He had mentioned MS in the beginning but apparently doesn't seem to think that any longer. Why is anyone's guess. I called his nurse Mon. & he wants to see me tomorrow instead of the end of the month. Any ideas what I might ask him to do or more specific tests to run?
Thank you

all i can suggest is nutrient testing.. my 'regimen' thread has a bloodwork section early on that might be useful, if you have a doctor that is open to that sort of investigation (some are, some aren't, unfortunately at this stage it's still rather luck-of-the-draw).

link to info in 'my regimen' (more info in my 'signature' links below):
my regimen: regimens-f22/topic2489.html
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
