Last year I had the experience of my symptoms being put down to anxiety or that it could be seizure activity as I have epilepsy. I really felt like I wasn't being taken seriously due to the fact that I take meds for anxiety. My MRI was clear. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see the neuro when the symptoms were really intense and active. It was months down the line.
I am finally seeing someone for a second opinion on the 7th of December. I am nervous about it due to my previous experience but also feel stronger and more able to go in to battle to advocate for myself. Over this year the symptoms haven't been as bad as last year but they are still there...mostly spasms/jerks/twitchiness, tingling, sometimes electric shocks in my tongue, brain fog/poor concentration/poor memory. Pain in my right foot.
I have also tried some of the Neuro tests like walking one foot in front of the other, walking on tip toes and on heels. Tip toes seems fine. Heels my right foot doesn't stay up and basically ends up touching the ground very quickly. The feet in front of the other test, I kind of jerk/twitch as I try this and I'm very unstable and often lose my balance.
What experience did others have with those Neuro tests or others?
I hope the new Neuro will be open minded and take me seriously and that I will get some answers.
