Diabetic Cyborg Life 7/29: Storm?

Today is my first neurology appointment since November of 2019, and my first ever with a sub-specialist for progressive MS, or multiple sclerosis. A mix of angst and thrill drive my pulse from a resting 65 to a high of 85 or so. Finding the answer to what kind of MS I have and what’s the state of things are logical results of what I will hear.

The latter will require image testing of CT and MRI scans I am guessing. Although the first office visit will answer a lot about my new sub-specialist for progressive MS. She has good reviews and scores on all doctor ranking sites I find when searching her name.

I just wonder how she will fit with all my own experiences and past dealings with doctors and specialists. I had a whole routine that my original neurologist and I did with touching fingers and face and walking. I am sure she will like to read what the effects of my MS are.

A walking gait issue or not being able to perceive a physical tick or issue will say much to her trained eye. We ignorant people might think one thing about a bodily issue, but she will likely know what it means neurologically.
