"I feel my problem is being ignored"

(as the patient),

This all began 2 years ago.

My neurologist doesn't seem to read my notes before my visit. Last time I saw him he said that my lumbar puncture came back normal. I then politely suggested he re-read my notes. My point proved because the results were very abnormal. I am amazed that he cannot get this right.

I have now asked for a second opinion. I hope my new neurologist will help. After all I have a very real problem, but they seem just to brush over it as if I don't exist. I wouldn't mind but I am no hypochondriac and it took 2 years to try and persuade them otherwise.
