Hi all, I just wanted to update my experiences with a more positive one! I had a visit to the Neurologist, which was exactly like all the others, he was towing the party line.... told me straight off he had spoken to his 'colleagues' about my case and had the background, went through the motions, romberg test, but with my eyes open lol! Told me nothing wrong with my memory I scored 28 out of 30 in his test.... lol. Doesn't stop me forgetting names of things or leaving oven on or not knowing why I am in a certain place or where I am going! Totally ignored pins/needles and dismissed muscle weakness as nothing out of the ordinary! Asked him if it was normal to not be able to lift a large mug of coffee at 53 yrs old! Anyway back to Dr's (last one I haven't seen) Results of new blood test show my RBC is now just in range, was low in last one and my MCV & MCH were high (but within range - just) in last results and have lowered slightly in new results, I pointed this out as showing typical PA and as he looked at both results, he visibly looked shocked, why had he not looked already! Anyway, he is referring me to an endocrinologist, (no idea what that will entail), any info gratefully recieved. He has also referred me to a gastro-enterologist. But the icing on the cake was I had to admit I had extra injections so I said I had them privately and he said if I could go private "all of this will disappear". There is hope! I told him I want to self-inject with the support of my Dr. and that I need to have every other day to heal my neurological symptoms. Pointed out I had come to the Dr's on occasions with symptoms of PA and always been poo-pooed as nothing wrong with me. Felt he listened and didn't just go through the motions. Here's hoping, I was going to change surgery but if this one Dr. is going to help.... I'll stay put. I am in Leighton Buzzard if any locals out there.
