I’m glad to have those tests behind me, as they are anything but comfortable! I had forgotten that the Velocity Test hurt when the electric current went through the sticky pads, but it does. I was right, though, that the discomfort from both tests is basically gone as soon as the test is over. I had some residual crampy feeling, not really pain, in my back, but it’s OK now. Since I have back problems anyway, that probably wouldn’t happen to most people.
I would like to have had a video of the testing session, so I could show it to the MDS specialist I will be seeing in April. Talk about shaking and jerking, plus a face full of tics and twisted expressions! Between the pain, and the stress, it’s no wonder I put on quite a show.
They will add the results to the information they will send to Dr. Watts. I will call his office tomorrow to take care of the change to Medicare as my primary insurance, and I thought I’d talk to his nurse, PA, or assistant – whoever – and see if there are any other tests he would want done in advance of my appointment.
I’m glad to have it over with, looking forward to finding out what it means, and waiting as patiently as I can for the appointment.
