Seeing a New Neurologist
I have finally found a neurologist who is experienced with LEMS!
I have heard great things about her so I am hopeful that my appointment will go well. She is in Richmond at VA Commonwealth University, a pretty big teaching hospital.
My appointment is set for July and I will keep you updated on how it goes!
I was also told that the same practice will be having a POTS specialist joining them at the end of the summer and I may be seeing him as well.
I am also considering seeing a rheumatologist at VCU as well. I think it doesn’t hurt to have a second opinion and my increasing autoimmune symptoms have been an ongoing battle for me.
I still don’t know which disease is causing my flare, and I find myself asking “Is it LEMS, or is this my lupus?” So hopefully seeing both specialists with a fresh set of eyes can lend me advice and guidance on living with both.
How do you get prepared for an appointment with a new specialist?
I’ll be working on a list of questions and symptoms to take with me to our visit.
