It has been very traumatic and it is only ONE of many things that have happened since God knows when part of what came of it was the MRI results put me in the probable (I had optic neuritis 3 years ago + with a clear MRI - nothing ever since to date) that I have MS.
More than one DOCTOR has told me to litigate. I have it on the list to consider not so much for the $$ but because this guy (and he continues to do so) should not be permitted to practice medicine.
Thanks for the kind words. I did 4.0 to 3.5 for a week and today I am supposed to go from 3.5 to 3.0 for a week, etc. Since I am 39+ and have the peri-menopause, and the new pdoc lowered wellbutrin I was on (helps w/ the smoking down to nothing but also have thyroid disorder and it is currently very out of whack and causes depression) I don't know what side effects of w/drawal I am having -- with so much going on with the family, etc. and all the doctors... even with just probable EVERYONE -- good neurologists here and there and everywhere say start the copaxone injections (once a day) and so that is the end of next week to go to the new doctor .... I am weary. Before moving to this state I had no problems and was never depressed and wasn't on medication and now I have had n surgeries, seemingly thousands of tests, doctors, and meds.... yes the obvious is to move -- 'twas life that simple.
Just my ...2Sense
