NEUROLOGY - Blood Draw Results - Dr. Maas - Module 2

12.19.2008 - Blood Draw Results
On Friday, December 19th, 2008, I have a meeting with a doctor at the Neurology Clinic for the problems with my double vision on the right side.  He will have reviewed the results of my blood draw and determine if I have any infection in the blood samples taken.

Well Dr. Maas didn't even mention the blood test so it must be alright as he checked my stats on his computer. Instead he tested my eyes, and also the strength of my arms, hands, legs and feet plus my co-ordination by walking in various situations.  All seemed normal and he said as much.  He said I needed to increase my dosage of the drug of 60 Mgs from three times a day to four a day and after a few weeks, if that didn't work, got to 90 Mgs four times a day.  I will see him again at the end of January and he also suggested I do an EMG that tests the nerve function in the chest and arms to see how I respond to the test.  This will help determine what needs to be done with medication in the future!
