Jan 2007: first "doctor" visit was for crippling
the screaming pain in both legs..felt like nerves
were burning up..only kept moving by using max doses
of tylenol and ibuprofen..and aspirin.
..doc next to useless..He was quite convinced
that it was MS [multiple sclerosis] and sas not interested in doing
anything other than "imaging" tests [mri/cat/etc]
..."and you can't afford it, nothing i can do for you"
[I started the "investigation" by requesting a basic
physical exam, [that he never finished]
for which I paid in cash...
[ not having medical insurance really seemed to put a
burr under his saddle..he kept asking me if I as
SURE that I didn't have medical insurance [that he could
exploit/plunder, no doubt].
? Why in the heck does someone need "insurance" to pay
for a one hundred dollar physical exam anyway?
[..yeah, I know, "medicine" in the usa is utterly corrupt]
when I mention the possibility of bacterial involvement..
he got quite offended.."you people always go for the most
unlikely /exotic causes.."
[..bacteria is "exotic"?]
...time passes..the burning/pain in both legs goes away.
..it's now 2012...the legs have become quite weak over
the last few months...but no pain in the leg nerves.
* 2007 "MS" event was 2 and a half years before the
M fibers made an explosive appearance..but
9 years after the appearance of the "blisters"/"bug bites"
that took many months to heal, onl6=y to be replaced by
another batch...endlessly cycling...until the
"big breakout of fibers" in Sep 2009.
