Doctor :   hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   I lost the use of 3 fingers on my right hand last year. I have had a TON of tests run but in the end the 2 neurologist I've seen basically told me I was crazy & doing it to keep my husband from deploying or because I didn't want to marry him.
User :   I've been told it might be MS but I can't get in to see my new doctor until the end of the month
Doctor :   okay
Doctor :   proceed
User :   It seems like it is getting worse now. My pointer finger on my right hand has started acting up now. Swelling & pain & stiffness. If I lose the use of that finger my right hand will be useless
User :   I lay on my back & my right side goes numb
User :   My eyes have started bothering me too now & I've started getting dizzy
User :   Hello?
Doctor :   okay
Doctor :   your symptoms suggest
Doctor :   it could be an systemic disease
Doctor :   as it is slow and progressing
