I am preparing for my next neuro appt on Aug 20th and am trying to get all of my ducks in a row. My question is this: How can I tell my neuro that my instincts are telling me this is MS, without appearing to be making up my symptoms? What I mean is that I have been going through all of these "MS" symptoms for over 4 years now and they are continuing to get worse and more frequent. Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme's, diabetes have all been ruled out. I have been doing my own extensive research simply on the symptoms alone. MS always appears to be what shows up as the answer. My fear is that the Dr. thinks that I am finding symptoms rather than experiencing them. Can anyone relate to this fear? I think the only test left to do is the spinal. Do I have the right to ask for one? I just want to know what the heck is wrong with me. I know it's not all in my head. I also fear that if I actually do have MS and don't start receiving the "proper" meds for MS, that it could make me worse off later. I apologize for the long-winded tread, but I needed to vent my frustrations. I've said the last 2 neuro visits that I was just going to ask outright, and I didn't. I wanted the doc to figure this out without me saying what I think. AArrgghh.
