Customer Question
I have neurological symptoms...

I have neurological symptoms and have seen 4 neurologists in the past year with wrong diagnosis and no answers. Have drop foot in left foot, a pinched nerve in my neck as verified by an MRI, a bulging disc in my lower back as verified by MRI, had 2 nerve conduction tests because of weakness and numbness in my left hand and arm. Only a little arthritis and some fluid in my elbow according to an MRI of my left arm, even though the results showed moderate to severe nerve damage in my arm and some damage in my right arm and carpel tunnel in both wrists. See another neurologist in two weeks for the second time and since she has all my test results she will make a diagnosis, but just anxious to know what it might be. Also suffered from uncoordination and had an MRI of my brain. Not MS

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

I took Alleve and could hold the soap in my left hand for the first time in months. About 8 months

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Anxiety, severe. Bipolar.
