My PCP kept refusing to give me a referral to the neurologist I seen in 2015. This neuro felt there was a good chance I had MS then but he needed a second set of MRI's to show changes in the lesions.
Why my PCP refused to give me a referral I do not know but luckily my old PCP was understanding and got me a referral without question.
So now I am armed with a second flare, second MRI with 1 additional lesion "7 previously" , elevated CSF protein.
I feel like my flare is coming to an end luckily. It lasted for months. The vertigo and dizziness were so bad it gave me panic attacks. I literally lost my hearing in my left ear for a week! Like someone flipped a switch and shut it off one day. It's back now but that freaked me out so bad. I couldn't drive for a while. Sometimes it felt like I had water on my leg or foot, burning feet and legs, tingles, stinging pain like I was being stung by ants. Once had to take my pants off in my friends barn, I was so sure a bee or ants were stinging me. Crazyness!
So the 19th I hope to get a clearer picture on what the next step will be. I'm scared but also I just want to move forward and stop or slow progression.
