Results Day

I am meeting with my specialist this afternoon to learn the results of the MRI and I am nervous.

At this point, I don't know which scares me more: actually getting a diagnosis or no diagnosis at all?

This will be my third specialist opinion. When I first met this physician, she asked me if all the tests came back negative, would I accept that there is "no diagnosis"? Or accept a diagnosis of "fibromyalgia"?

Not a chance.

I've read too many accounts of missed diagnosis to give up.

In fact, the first specialist I consulted missed my diagnosis of hypothyroidism. If I had taken her word that there was nothing wrong with me, I wouldn't be in school today.

Then again, it could be MS.

Either way, I wish it wish I knew in advance what to expect.

  1. Good luck! I will be thinking of you.

    I think sometimes no news is worse than news, but that depends on what the news is.

    There's always a qualifier.
