I was originally diagnosed 3 years ago with mixed connective tissue , Raynauds etc and in the last 3 years my walking has become very limited. I asked for a second opinion from a rheumatologist whom I saw in May- he said it is not a rheumatology problem - he disagrees with the initial diagnosis and thinks it is neurological . I have already seen a neurologist and he does not think it is a neuro problem but I have been referred by the new consultant back to neuro and also to haematology- the whole process takes forever but my message to people is this- if you are not happy with the consultant ask to be referred for a second opinion - the new consultant took an hour to examine me and referred me on. although no conclusion has been reached yet I feel happier as before I went to see the consultant for 10 minutes once a year having waited for 2 hours and then she would say go away and come back in a year .
