Another Day, Another ER

Why stick with left sided hemiparesis when you can add in the right side too? C'mon, after our trip to Hopkins last week at which yet another neurologist shrugged his shoulders and told us he has no idea what's causing all the trouble, we had to figure out a way to step it up a notch. I am now with DH in one of HUP's ER exam rooms. We just came from MRI where first yet another neurologist examined him and then he got yet another MRI and MRA. Based on past experience, we are now waiting for them to come back and tell us that everything looking normal on the scans, so despite the scary new symptoms and severe pain (they just gave him morphine in his IV because his head and right arm/hand hurt so bad) they're going to send us home. Yet again.

Oh my G-d. This is totally inappropriate. Sorry to sound like a mom scolding the universe but REALLY. Try whatever you can to get to Dr. Pruitt, even if it's to see who she'd recommend...

This is just ridiculous. I cannot believe they cannot find a cause. And, it almost sounds like they are saying it's all in his head. It clearly isn't...
