Hi, thought I'd let you know how the appointment went. It was strangely reassuring going back and seeing old faces, as I thought there is little more they an help me with but it was reassuring knowing he knew what I was talking about when I found it difficult to explain the problems with my sight, balance and feeling in my right arm. As I thought I have to practice the balance, they can give me tablets for the arm if it becomes too difficult to cope with but they have side effects so I will carry on and he is requesting my GP sends me to an ophthalmologist because he has no results from the field of vision test (the hospital overlooked sending them!) but I doubt that anything can be done, apparently the damage is in my cerebellum, which explains the balance and sight problems, but I must practice, practice, practice to give my brain the best chance to re-wire. I have another appointment in 12 months and he said to contact him if I was ever in need of help. I can contact him if I need back up for the DWP appeal and I can carry on taking the antihistamines, no problem, I find if I take half occasionally they help me sleep and I seem to have a better day the next day, but he didn't know why that would be. So its carry on as you were!
Take care all, love Janet x
