More tests for me

Mr Stuff

I saw my new top gastro guy this morning and it was a good visit. He asked me to go through everything from the start and made a lot of notes, throwing a few questions in along the way. At the end of that he thought that since I’ve been checked for a lot of medical problems it may well be worth looking at my nervous system as well as trying some different prescriptions.

So I’ve got a new prescription to try out when I see my doc next week and had some blood taken so they can test for some new things as well as a list of tests he wants done. The tests include an MRI to check my brain and nervous system, a tilt test (which sounds like it is guaranteed to make me vomit) and a gastric emptying to see if my stomach is working properly. He came across as very confident that he would try to exhaust all other avenues and both Mrs Stuff and I felt good as we left.

So here’s hoping he can find something good

So I’d often watch DVD’s with my jacket and gloves on.
