I've psted here about the 'brain zaps' I get. They have had me a little nervous. My psychologist wanted me to see a neurologist, my rheumatologist that treats my fibro has been ill and its been hard to reach him, so I went to my primary for a referal, he also thinks I need to go. Had conversation wiht Rheumy today on phone and he thinks I'm wasting my time, he said its more than likely fibro. I don't know if he just does not want me to go because he doesn't want another doctor dealing with my fibro? This neurologist is knowledgeable about fibro and that is what I wanted because I am hoping this is fibro and he should be able to tell. I also get tingling and numbness when lying on back or side and that is also when I have these 'zaps'. After talking to my Rheumy, I've lost my confidence about going and am scared to go. I went through a nightmare with worker's comp doctor's the past few years and now am distrustful of doctor's except for my primary and my Rheumy. Am I doing the right thing by going or am I blowing this out of proportion? He also tried to link this to my anxiety issues. Funny thing is these"zaps' happen when I am going to sleep or wake me from sleep, I'm not stressing right then! Any advice appreciated!
