I made the decision to switch neurologists like 2 months ago. I just wasn't thrilled with the office staff at my old one. The Dr. was great, but the staff ( a whole 2 people) were always changing and not for the better. Last summer I had some issues with numbness, tingling and anxiety so I would call and leave a message and he would get right back to me to see what was going on. A few months back I called for 2 weeks trying to get ahold of him. The phone was consstantly going to the answering leaving messages that my Trigeminal Neuralgia was worse and that I was in alot of pain and I never heard from him. I really don't think he was getting the messages.
So, in April I went for an MRI ordered by my new neurologist because I will have been on Copaxone for a full year. I called more than a week later and left a message asking if they have gotten my results. I haven't heard anything yet but I am not sure if I am being impatient or if I should call again. I do not want to be annoying at all. I am just anxious to see what the results were.
I am so bad at this stuff. I am always worried about being nice and not bothering anyone. Everyone tells me that I need to take control of my health care and that I am the only one that is looking out for me. Guess they are right.
NOTE TO SELF: WORK ON GROWING A PAIR!
