BUT, other than 1, my experience "especially" with neurologists my impression is that the many i dealt with do think and want to play God. but, they don't listen to us or treat us as indivduals. once that diag. ms is put on you you're gonna go through hell and high water to get them to address other possibilities. they are da man what would we want this or that taken care of to see if it helps. heck, we're only living in this body-just shut up and do as they say. tell ya here's some med.'s and don't worry about the side effects we have other med.'s for that if the first med.'s don't kill you first.--And, i have walked away or rolled away.
