I called my Doctor's office Friday to request this new batch of records be sent to the neurologist. I also told her about the loss of balance incident at the grocery store. When she heard the neurologist couldn't see me until March, she said "That is unacceptable. I'm scheduling the MRI now." So I expect to hear from the scheduling office here in a day or two.
I also have a new symptom-I don't even know how to describe it, it's like a burst of pain in my leg. It only lasts a moment, but it hurts bad enough to give me chills all over my body. Then-poof!-it's gone.
I don't know what's going on with me, and I honestly don't know if I should be preparing myself for the possibility that I have something really wrong with me. I do know that I don't feel right, and I haven't for quite a while now. I was going to put off the MRI-it's an expensive test, and with any luck it will turn out to be completely unnecessary. But something is telling me to get it done, so I'm doing it.
This is another one of those times when I really, REALLY wish my mother was still alive.
