Mystery: Ongoing

I went to see my regular doctor yesterday, on a sort of "touching bases" visit. As he is not a neurologist, I didn't actually expect any answers.

He did, however, talk to my neurologist, who has apparently declared himself "baffled."


I see the neurologist again on Friday; he'll be doing another exam, just in case something has been missed in previous exams. I'm hoping there will be an "a ha!" moment. And no, I don't mean the 1980s pop group from Norway, even though I think their music video was pretty cleverly done.

I have a bad feeling that when all this is done (assuming it ever gets done) I'm going to end up with a disease named after me. [Note to my little brother: no, not "geekitis."]

I'll be seeing my regular doc again in a few weeks. Why, I'm not sure, but it will give me a chance to ask about the TV, which I completely forgot to do yesterday. Oh, and about a handicap tag for the truck. I figure if I can get decent parking, I ought to do just that.

Russemeral Peripheral Neuropathy, treatable (surprisingly) only by increasingly expansive and high definition media viewing, therapeutic effects increasing in the presence of family, friends, felines, and (again perhaps surprisingly) ongoing (was "relentless"--ed) fraternal harrassment.

Current research explores the possibility of fish oil and white chocolate, alone and in combination (NB: serially), as additional therapies.

I'd be happier if pizza was the prescribed treatment.

Maybe I should self-medicate....

"Baffled neurologist" is a phrase I'd rather not hear.... Of course, I consider it grounds for malpractice, so call the best ambulance chaser you know.....

On the other hand, you could just get a doctor that isn't an IDIOT. Russ, as much as I'd like to tell my friends the story of how my brother got a never-before-diagnosed disease and had it named after him, I'd rather see you get fixed (literally, not in the pet sense). Please don't trust this particular doctor just because you've seen him more than once - you remember Jay's experience with doctors and his wife's condition? Get another doctor if this guy doesn't have a grip on your situation.
