daughters nuero visit yesterday

Nov 04, 2015 6:52 AM

Took my daughter to see her neurologist yesterday and I have to say that we are blessed with who we got, he listens to her and what issues are going on even if she is a kid. He upped her topramaite and gave her pain meds for when she has a migraine so bad that her meds to help control the don't work, since she is like her momma and can't take triptains to help with those types. He actually went as far as to find out around what time her migraines come on. They did a blood sugar check and come to find out with all the information he got from her and the blood sugar check, her migraines are caused from hypoglycemia and he also remembered to check on her left hand because he thought last visit she was having the beginning stage of carpal tunnel syndrome. Well she walked out of the office with 2 new DX'S... Hypoglycemia and carpal tunnel syndrome. He is not going to put her through the nerve conduction test right now since it is still beginning stage's. Love this man! Most will come in and write scripts and send you on your way, but he talked with her and HELPED with some parts of the common core math that she was stuck on! How many doctors do that! He spent a total hour on her and made sure she was taking care of! Thought I would share the positive news as we all could use a little encouragement now and then and even though I felt cruddy still it made my day brighter knowing we made the right choice for my daughter! 😉

Moparmom, what awesome news!! I'm sorry that your daughter was diagnosed with these things but very happy that the neuro listened to her and asked her questions and also have her meds to help treat her. It's hard to find good doctors these days. With all of the insurance regulations, they don't want to take the time to talk and listen because that cuts in on their four patients every 15 minutes to maximize all of their co-pays. It's really sad but very true. Thanks for sharing the good news so that we can celebrate with you!! Sending gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers for continued success with this doctor. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Moparmom, what a wonderful blessing! Did the doc mention her wearing splints at night to help relieve the pressure on the nerve? When I was first dx they put me in splints. It takes some getting used to buy it let my wrists relax at night. I know his attention to your daughter's needed is a big relief for you! Praise God for the good docs out there! 🙏🌼

Awesome! It's always a good day when as mothers we know somebody else cares so much about one of our kids. And good for him too!

Flappys, he is having her wear a wrist brace all day and night. Her fracturing her hand is what brought on the carpal tunnel syndrome, she did it while doing a tumbling pass at cheer practice a year ago.
