Tazer anyone?

I'm sure that people who have actually been tazered, would disagree, but that is the closest way I can explain the yuckiest part of today's round of tests. The visual test was boring. I got goop in my hair, connected to a computer with wires and stared at a black and white pattern for a long time. One eye at a time.

Then the nerve test on hands and feet were like mini tazers being attached and held on for like 5 minutes. The left side wasn't too bad because that is the side I have the most difficulty with. My right side though felt every ounce of pain. I almost passed out with the right hand. They had to do each one individually. Yuck. Since the neurologist already knew about the nerve damage to my ears, I was saved the third round of the EMG. No sense in taking a test I know I'm going to fail.

The doctor called while I was napping and said that I need multiple shots of B-12 after looking at last night's blood work. I'm going to have to learn how to do this so I don't have to go to the doctor every time I need it. More than one way to get over being freaked out with needles. Take control of the needle! Avi offered to help if I can't get the hang of it. So I'll get that started on Monday when I see the neurologist.

I just found out that my Uncle in Wyoming is being tested for MS too.

The mountain is bumpy and steep, but I'm still climbing.
