    Oh, I'll go back.

    This part was kind of funny:
    She had asked me what problems troubled me the most, and I'd mentioned a few. I didn't mention memory.

    A bit later she mentioned memory problems in passing, and I said I find memory problems troubling but I'd forgotten to mention them.

    Only after I said it did I realize how funny a remark that must have been. Maybe she and some colleagues laughed about it over lunch.

    Ampyra had been a miracle drug for a few years. Then it stopped working . I decided yesterday I am going to give it another shot.

    New Neuro sounds like a keeper. And whoever is running that practice also sounds like a keeper. Maybe it's the influence of new staff doc?

    Thoracic or "thoracic spine"?

    Linda, it probably is because that is what I was getting for a few years. Then my neuro decided I did not need the thoracic, but before I got brain, spine and thoracic area. He found my worse lesions in the upper spine close to the neck area. Nothing ever showed up in the thoracic area.

    My understanding on MRIs is there is brain, cervical (neck), thoracic, and lumbar. I would think that a spine would entail the cervical, thoracic and lumbar. In other words, the whole spine.

    I've only had 2 MRIs since 1998, and have no Neuro. That's probably why.
