Health Update

So yesterday arvo I went and saw the new neurologist, he was a nice enough fellow after talking to me for a good while he examined me.

He is sending me for an MRI which I will have done on the 19th at 7pm. I do not like such a late appointment but it was all they had at first the woman making the appointment wanted me to go to East Maitland to have it done. That is a 0-40 minute drive, thankfully I only have to go to Cardiff a 10 minute drive.

He has also prescribed me a new medication to try, something called Gapentin 100mg, this I take 3 times a day.

He also thing I should see another specialist in Sydney, as he says that my symptoms suggest either an Essential tremor or a Parkinson’s tremor but it can’t be both. He didn’t say anything about a Functional tremor.
