Well, the blood test came back normal, as did the Jolly test. I’m still having all the same weakness, gait problems, and hoarseness, though. From what I’ve been able to research on Google, neither of these tests is totally reliable, so I’m not ready to breathe a sigh of relief just yet.
I have asked that my Neuro refer me to a particular Endocrinologist, though, so maybe I can get an appointment with him next week. Well, I mean get the authority to make an appointment next week. No telling how long I’ll have to wait to actually SEE him.
Hubby and I are hoping I turn out to be Hypothyroid, as all my symptoms fit that disorder, and our daughter takes medication for it. All my thyroid tests were normal, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a thyroid disorder. THAT would be easy to fix with medication, so we’re hoping that’s it.
I’ve all but quit jerking, too, even though I cut the Primidone from 3 at a time to 2 at a time, so I lowered it to one tablet morning and night yesterday, and I’m still not jerking. Very weird.
It sure would be nice and neat if medical tests were 100% accurate in every case, but this is real life. There are always exceptions.
