Hey Ladies! Thank you for your kind thoughts. I agree with ya'll...I've been in the medical field for 35 yrs and I know that "they" can be wrong...regardless of where the mistake was made. Unfortunately there are so many places things can go wrong but it has improved. I have an appt with the neuro guy next Friday to get the results of the final test that was done two weeks ago. He did listen when I told him how I felt about the new med that he had given me so now I'm on a "childs" dose and I can tell a difference in the memory department. I was glad the he did listen and did something about it. My first neuro guy was "let's watch it for a while" well we watched for 9 months and I also had a med interaction from what he'd give me and when I told him about it his reply was "it can't do that". When I told him that when I stopped taking it the pain in my face went away. He just said that it was something else but not the drug I said was an interaction. "Can't happen" he said. Not a good thing to say to me since I know when I stopped taking the med the problem went away! I think I was really different from his other patients because I didn't want heavy duty drugs and didn't get any prescriptons for any either.
So far I'm still at the same place as before...all tests so far have been neg. No tumor, no stroke, no epilepsy, so am so thankful that all that type stuff was neg.
The med that I stopped taking had sideffects of confusion, memory loss, and others so considering that all tests have been negative I strongly believe that it was that medication. Of course I'm not happy with that doc either 'cause he told me "that can't happen". I just don't know how you can say it can't happen when it's listed on the papers from the pharmacy, in the PDR, on the web, etc. as sideffects.
Riding? Well when I was there I asked about riding the m/c with the sidecar and he said no. I do wonder why he said no to 3 wheels...the van only has 4. Well I haven't exactly followed that order very well. When he said drive I said ok and was on the m/c that following weekend. The first few times I went out we did make sure that someone was with me just in case I did have problems. I've not had any balance issues with the 2-wheeler or had any memory issues that anyone has noticed so I've got over a 1,000 miles for this month and still have some more time to ride.
I'll let ya'll know the results of the last test. But at this time it is still considered a migraine varient or transglobal transiet amnesia by the docs.
Sorry this got lengthy. And thank you again for your thoughts, prayers, & concern.
DebraHAVE A SAFE RIDE
