GH, nope, still no follow up spinal tab, or NCS or EMG!

She is a neurologist. Her reason for muscular disease is that my weakness is more apparent in large proximal muscles than distal. I tried to tell her CIDP is like that but of course she wouldn’t listen to me. I told her my numerous nerve symptoms and she wouldn’t hear of them either. She asked me to walk, tested my limbs’ strength, tested my reflexes (still there), did a blood test. Nothing else. I spent a whole night waiting and nothing useful came out of it in the end.

I still can walk but at this rate I don’t think I will be able to for very long. And I may need to go to ER again if it comes to that.
