Hi Everyone! I've been having worse symptoms for about a year now. Looking back, I think I had some mild symptoms in my early 40s even. Now I'll be 64 this month.


I've ralked with my GP about this before. Since they updated their new computer system she is so busy trying to keep up all the records that she doesn't even have t chance to really look at me and I think she misses things. She poo-pooed my symptoms as normal. At first I was happy and tried to except that view. Then yesterday I left my physical therapists office and after almost a mile I realized that I was going in the wrong direction. That shook me a little because I had that happen a few times several years ago and I got really scared.


I think someone here recommended the book "Still Alice." I just got through listening to it on my Kindle last night. I cried through most of it. The story was so similar to what I'm going thru on many days. Like Alice, I have good days and bad days. 


This morning I called and got another appt. with my GP. I'm going to ask her to refer me to a neuro. I think I should try to get her to stop looking at the computer when I'm there too. If any of you have any suggestions please make them so I can start trying to get a diagnosis.
