I went to my neurologist today. Let's sum it up with... the answers created more questions.
When they did the MRI for my neck looking for lesions, they found a mass on/near my thyroid. I'll go in on the 10th for an ultra sound to see if it really is a mass. And maybe it's something to worry about.
Then my thoracic spinal MRI showed spinal fluid cavity. I go to a neurosurgeon for a diagnosis or more tests on the 10th too. For liability purposes my neurologist wouldn't/couldn't answer any of my questions regarding the cavity. Google is way too much power in the hands of the lay person. Let's just say, I would have been happier with a diagnosis of MS. Pretty lame huh?
I would say I'm staying strong and positive, but that would be a big fat lie. I want to crawl in bed for a few days and cry. Not that it would make it better. It just feels like the normal thing to do. I'm tired of being tough. I'm tired of being strong.
I did do the b-12 shot and didn't feel a thing. That's a high note on an otherwise crappy day.
PS. I just wish I was half as cute as that little critter in the above picture. Oh well.
