So, anyway... I've been on the Parkinson's medication since Tuesday night, and today has been mostly spasm free. My pain levels have dropped significantly, since I'm no longer dislocating and subluxing every 2 seconds, and the side effects of taking the meds have started to wear off.
In other news... On January 19th I had my appointment with my geneticist. He put in a request for an MRI to check for a Chiari malformation. He told me not to be surprised if there was a 6-8 month wait before I got it. I got a call today saying there had been a cancellation, and they can do the MRI on Monday!
So I would guess within the next 3 weeks, I should have a diagnosis of some sort, and a lot more information under my belt (if all my test results make it to the people that need to see them, and I get called to discuss them, that is...).
This is my best friend's baby, snuggling up in one of the blankets I made for her. Isn't she precious?
