      If you could see me, I’m doing my debilitated version of the “happy dance”! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Take my word for it, you’re better off NOT being able to see it, but my grand-daughter likes it!!)

      Anyway, I’ve found the neuro I’ve been searching for!!!!! WHOOO-HOOOO!!! A doctor that’s willing to earn his pay, dig til he hits pay-dirt, and willing to consider all things, including things outside his specialty!!!! YEEE-HAAWWWW!

      He wants ALL my symptoms, will go through them, sort them, group them, and order tests according to those groups or sets. I’m having a test for a PFO done later this week, and I’m having a skin biopsy next week!

      (if you’re not familiar with a PFO, it’s a Patent Foramen Ovale, or a “hole in your heart”. We’re all born with them, but if it doesn’t close, later in life you can get most of “our” symptoms due to lack of blood flow to extremities, organs, etc. Also causes an increased risk of stroke. A good friend’s daughter SWORE she had MS, spent two years going from doctor to doctor to doctor, saw this guy, and within a week was having surgery to repair it. In six months, she’ll be BETTER than new!)

      FINALLY!!! (dancing…dancing….dancing…) :p

      Good for you! I’m glad you finally hit pay dirt.

      I did a quick check to see if you were any were close to see if there was a chance of seeing the same doctor.

      It may be a bit of a stretch to go from Florida to Utah. ๐Ÿ˜€
