Good News ... and not so good.

I saw the Chief of Neurology today, and had some EMG studies.

They had baselines from 2010 to compare to ... My nerve conduction, etc has dropped 50 - 60% in the last 4 years - not so good. He said everything indicates progression of my previously diagnosed condition - and it's going to keep progressing. At some point, I will be stuck in a wheelchair.

The good news - he doesn't think the CT Scan results are contributing to the neurological deficit; I'm NOT a candidate for surgery, so there will be no invasive procedures (such as a myelogram) done.

He ordered some more lab work, will do an in depth review of my case and leave notes for the Doctor I see in September.
