I'm "reeling" from the appointment I had with my neuro today - my first appointment since my Internal Med Doctor said "MS" you need to see a Neuro. Well, he reviewed the 6 "spots" I have on my brain MRI, looked at the list of symptoms - gave me a brief exam and said "you look healthy to me" but I would recommend getting an MRI of your spine. Since my insurance doesn't cover the cost of the MRI I questioned - to what end - for another MRI. He immediately got ticked off and said aren't you here for my advice? He said my symptoms don't indicate anything in particular. I told my husband today that I think a short stay at a mental facility would do me a world of good. I walked out of that office feeling like I was labeled a nut case. I think he thought he was doing me a big favor by giving me an RX to help with restless legs/feet. Please... anyone... talk to me!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
