Finding A Suitable Neuro

Recommended Posts


Not uncommonly, we sometimes get referred to neuros who are not specialised in MS. This can lead to delayed DX's or even to dismissal of the idea that it might be MS.


Ideally, when asking for a referral to a neuro, we should ask for a neuro who specialises in MS. The MS Trust has a list of MS specialists in various areas, including MS nurses and physiotherapists, which you can find here: http://www.mstrust.org.uk/information/centres/

      Hi,   has anyone had neuro physio? I can't seem to find a single post about it...just wondered what peoples experiences of it were? did it help? I've recently started it and it seems to be making me considerabley worse...all across my upper back is agony and my 'walking' is nothing but a very slow shuffle now...I'm inclined to give up on it.   Fran x

    • Neuro suspects ME and Fibromyalgia

      I saw the neuro today and he did some tests while I was there and has pretty much ruled out MS.   I have to go for brain MRI to be sure but then a rheumatologist and a psycologist.   Feel a bit numb, stunned and confused, don't know much about these and what happens next.

    • neuro appointment today!

      Hi Everyone,   My neuro appointment has finally come around. My biggest concern is not being taken seriously as I know many of you have had to go back numerous times. I was also not really taken seriously when I saw the neuro 5 years ago.   Any advice?   Thanks,   Katie x

    • Neuro appointment..........very strange?

      Hope everyone`s coping with the hot weather. I saw my neuro June last year, first visit for 12 years, my notes had gone missing so he started from scratch and sent me for an mri and said he wanted to see me yearly. He also said I had spms. I didn`t get an appointment come through for June this year, so the other day I phoned the ms nurse`s office to see if they could find out what was going on.They were very helpful, gave me results of mri, but with regards to the neuro appointment she said that the neuro had probably changed his mind! I was gobsmacked! Thanks for letting me know! Is this a normal thing that is happening now? I feel angry, confused and very disappointed, it just seems very strange to me. Has anyone else had the same happen?   Linda x
