So today was neurology day. He said he cannot find anything physically wrong but my reflexes are quite sharp and I very spectacularly failed the Romberg test - could not stay upright for even a fraction of a second. He says b12 should have helped and he wants a scan to see if there is any permanent neuro damage. I mentioned sacdc and he said that would improve with b12 so he is looking for a scar on my spine that will not improve. I had 6 vials of blood taken for numerous bloods incl mma. Several of the tests are for lupus so either he is ruling it out or suspects it or maybe that is because the GP wants me to be checked for ME/CFS as a result of B12 def. He was really nice and very thorough. It was not the lead consultant, which I wanted as he also works in the private hospital and I have been told he is good, but still I saw a nice guy.
He asked if I have memory problems and hubby interjected at that point - told him that I have had those problems for years and explained the kind of problems I have
He did say he doubts the N2O at work worsened my def as that would take years of exposure not a few weeks - unless I am particularly sensitive - well I am a delicate little flower.
I finally feel that somebody has listened and agreed to do tests, the gastro and haemotologist refused point blank. The complaint I made about them is being investigated still - now if it can just carry on until I have results for all tests then I could add any diagnoses I receive to it to prove they should have listened to me originally. This is a small step forward as a lot depends on what the neuro does when I get results but it is a step further than I was.
