Jimmylegs I am unsure if they checked my folic acid but maybe it is done when they request a full blood count.
I thought the dr was rather rude in leaving the door open during the consultation when I was emotional and giving him the low down on all the symptoms. He only shut it when he checked my reflexes and poked me with a pin everywhere, which I didn't cope with due to needle phobia. Even though he wasn't piercing the skin I got frightened and he acted as though I was a pathetic girl.
By the way he said the tests he did which were not many just what I mentioned came up all normal so great sign.
I was not at all convinced due to the fact I am the one living these symptoms every day not him. I was not affected at all that morning when I saw him. I definitely would not say I am less worried about an MS diagnosis just because his little set of tests in the room for 5 minutes were normal range. Oh, gosh, I have requested a new Neuro........
MRI getting done in April and still no call on the blood work, does that mean nothing showed up? Not necessarily I would say due to how slack these doctors can be.
Bright note, holiday in 3 and half weeks to Melbourne/Victoria back to my home area of the mornington peninsula. Shopping and food, oh yum pizza here I come, and steamed dimsims with soya sauce and flake (fish) down there to die for and these pastries with fresh cream and strawberry icing...............
Oh, guys thanks so much again can't say it enough.
Oh, man I am having trouble thinking and writing and making sense to myself. I have been staying away from people because of this.
I think I am coming across as though I have been drinking. I asked for white sugar the other day at maccas. Come on Julie, white sugar? Ok I told myself you can buy brown so maybe it didn't sound that bad.
I will post this in my other area of the site too guys.
