Just got back from a neurologist appt.
« on: June 09, 2014, 06:11:03 PM »
I am sure that some of you know of the horrors I have been going through. I just got back from a neurologist appt and all and all it was a relief. This doctor had my blood tested for many obscure things that could affect large and small nerves. They all came back normal except for one protein marker that was mildly elevated. Apparently this could be nothing but she still wants me to see a hematologist. I will see him in 2 weeks.

The neurologist said I have no nerve issues. I had a number of nerve tests that ruled out nerve damage. I asked her if it could be anxiety related and she said it could be.

I guess it is time to let this all go. My prickly legs aren't from damaged nerves. Yay!!!

That is wonderful news.  Anxiety can do some crazy things to us and cause such real symptoms.  Never ceases to amaze me.  I hope this good news brings you some peace.

If we anxiety sufferers could bottle the feeling we get right after a doctor appt or test where we feel that everything is ok, it would solve a lot of issues. 

I'm glad you got a good report   :winking0008:

The test was really not bad at all. Way easier than I thought.

I have stage 2 PBC (autoimmune liver disease).  I have some damage and some bile ducts are missing, but its still considered an early stage.  I have been on meds about a month now.  I go back to the doctor in August, probably to get another blood test to see how things are doing. 

I go to a Rheumotologst next week to see if I have any other autoimmune disease.  My ANA is pretty high, or it was.
