in the future i see…..more tests

June 22, 2007 at 9:16 pm

I went to the doctor today. He is ordering more tests before handing me off to the neuro’s at Yale Med Center. Due to degrading cognitive/memory functions, he is ordering a neuro-psych workup to document and isolate which part of the brain is causing this. Lately, my wife says I sometimes get a vacant stare during conversations. Also, I have an increasing memory problem. Additionally, I will be getting a battery of autonomic testing. My blood pressure/pulse abnormalities are of some concern to the neuro, especially since I have recently relapsed to the point of tachycardia with and without posture changes, even having episodes of tachycardia while seated or lying down. I have also begun to have pain and tingling or crawling sensations in my head and face now, which is new. I don’t know where all this is going, but I wanted to let you all know. I may or may not be posting for a few days. I feel awful and really just want to sleep. Please feel free to give me opinions on any of these things if you have experience or just have a take to offer on them. Thanks.
