After much thought over the weekend, I cancelled the EEG. I was so horrified with the neurologist’s frighteningly incompetent listening skills that I really want nothing to do with McNeuro’s ever again. In addition, does it make sense to do two EEGs – one in the middle of the day at the neurologist’s office and then one done by a sleep specialist who will do it during the transition from wakefulness to sleep – the only time the symptoms occur? The only way it makes sense is if you are a doctor who is money driven rather than patient driven. She’ll get her profit from the EEG done in her office and then ship me to the sleep specialist. Uhhh, no she won’t.
So, I will get the MRI on the 28th and then take the results to a sleep specialist myself.
When they tell us to be our own best advocates in our medical care, they mean it!
