Day 8: Neurologist

Shockingly enough, I found out when I got to my appointment that it’s only been 4 months since I last saw my neurologist. I was so sure it had been a year… which just underscores how warped my sense of time is now, and provided me with a good example to give her of how my cognitive function has been impaired.

Because I journal everything now, I was able to give her a good summary of my symptoms, unlike last time when I was apparently in too deep a fog to remember anything except my headaches and vertigo.

She ordered some bloodwork to rule out heavy metal poisoning, HIV and a few other things, and referred me for a nerve conductivity test, an EEG and an MRI of my spine.
