Six Month Neuro Follow Up
Had my six month follow up appointment with my MS Neurologist today. He had a third year neuro resident working with him today. I told her about my concerns and she did a quick neuro exam. I noticed that neither of my legs had reflexes, which just six months ago they were hyper reflexes. I asked should I be concerned and was told by her that she may have not hit the reflex in the correct spot. I’ve had this done for over 20 years, she hit them in the right area.
He did a very minimal neuro exam and didn’t redo the reflexes. I suppose the best outcome from the visit was getting approval to go ahead with my Ocrevus infusion. It had been delayed due to me having Covid (almost 8 1/2 months between infusions instead of six).
I absolutely adore my MS Neurologist, have been with him almost 20 years but this pandemic has changed him. I can tell he’s transitioning to retire soon. Maybe that’s for the best, especially if he’s starting to cut corners and not actively listening.
Anyone else have non reactive reflexes in their legs (knees and dorsal/ankles)?
Grateful for the abilities that I still have but can definitely tell I’m progressing.
