After a 50 minutes delay – my doctor, not me - I went to see her.

I´ve updated my list of questions and had prints and all for her to see.

But after waiting in the same chair for 50 min., then walking to her office –
I got one of the nerve/ muscles-attacks that I get more or less every day (My other diagnosis have come out as mentally problems) but she watched it happened and for the first time a doctor saw how it was.

She made many neurology tests on me – following her finger, pressing against her arms, she tried my reflexes with the hammer… I didn`t have many reflexes. (However, today I have many bruises on my skin, where she touched me, I bruise that easy)

I´ll get an appointment with a nerve specialist, to see if that has any impact on me.

The blood work and tests that I had were fine, except my iron levels are excessively high. Therefore, I am of my daily vitamins now. Why they are so high no one knows.
I´ll have new blood work in four weeks, to see if it is just the vitamins or something else, that the doc will get into later.

I´ve gotten three new medications last time and one didn´t work at all. I´d had to self-medicate with the old meds, so I am now back on my old meds.

The arthritis medicine she gave me last time actually works on my hands. I´ll never be able to make a fist again, but the pain is less so that is a win.

That was what she had time for, so asking for my mammogram and a bone scan – to see if the breast cancer had gone in my bones – I have an appointment in two weeks...

So yeah…
My next post will be Happy Happy….

Sorry for not answering, I´ve been feeling bad the past few days.
I need to see i the new meds are working, and it take a few weeks sometime.
But I will get better.
Thank you for being here darling♥♥

Bless you, bb. In many ways, this post relieved me. I hate it when doctors write something off as psychological and don't actually try to observe when a patient has a complaint. In many ways, it was a stroke of luck that she got to see the disorder you were having a complaint about!

I am holding hope and keeping you warm in my heart, sweetie.

Thank you so much for being here, and sorry for being late here.

Yeah; I am glad she got to see what it was about for that particular, thing, then she could do something about it.
I know I have a lot in my head, but this is not a psychological thing, it is real.

Love you so much darling♥♥

Hey Babe,
I´m so not doing well today, soooo much pain.

But I know that it is for a few days, it always comes in waves.
I hope the new combination of meds will make me feel better.

And now my doc has seen one of the "attacks" so now she is doing something about that....
THat can maybe show them that it is not in my head....

Huggles and love you ♥

I'm sorry to hear that *hugs* Is there anything I can do to cheer you up?

Yes, now she does have to take you seriously. Of course it's not just in your head, I've seen what happens. It's good that they will try to find out what it is now :)
