My MS Wire column this week shines a spotlight on a neurologist who understands that most patients don’t make up their symptoms but too many docs tell them it’s all in their head. What’s been your experience?
Does “when a woman your age presents with “unexplained pain and sensations” I usually advise “talking to someone” count? That was the ortho I went to first because I didn’t understand the pain. I was kind and said “I don’t have a problem with that if necessary but do you think it could possibly be nerve related and maybe you could suggest a neurologist?” He sighed and said it was a waste of time but OK.
My neuro was so kind and sent a “very professional but not so nice letter” to the ortho. GRIN
