Ugh, I’ve been waiting for weeks for my referral to the academic hospital for my official final diagnosis/second opinion. I’ve called and left several messages, etc. I finally got a call today and was told, “Somehow your referral went to the MS clinic, but after the physician reviewed your chart, he said you don’t have MS and he referred you to the general neurology department. The general neurologist reviewed your chart and said you really need to be seen by the neuromuscular neurologist at the ALS clinic.” Arrrrrhhhhh! I know! That’s where I was supposed to be referred to in the first place!! So I’m now a couple of months delayed because my chart has been floating all around the hospital. I’m just frustrated and tired and needed to vent.
