@BrianI good going. Sounds as if you're OK with a horizon to look at. Certainly, that's my experience - when my blood sugar is too high my semicircular canals get out of whack and I need a visual reference to walk straight.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Second round at the physio for my tennis elbow...the IMS treatments have been very effective. General use of elbow is now fine.

Sleeping a lot better since I stopped using the Withings Smartwatch to monitor my sleep.

Anyhoo, a phone call from the NHS today, offering my an in person physiotherapy consultation, next Friday at 3:30pm, at the Cameron Hospital (NHS Fife's main rehab physio facility).   :thumbsup: I think my neurologist had requested that I see the physio in person, rather than via online video calls.

A couple of letters from the NHS today.

First one being a copy of the letter from the neurologist which is getting sent to my GP, as well as an appointment for my next MRI scan. It seems my thoracic spine  hasn't been scanned during my previous MRIs, so that's what I'll be getting this time, with contrast dye.

Good luck!

My pain management lot wanted me to ask for a generic "just scan entire spine"cos we don't think I've ever had thoracic spine scans (they've done cervical, lower lumbar and sacral alongside other stuff) but weren't willing to put that in writing or ask for it themselves so I said "I might mention it to a GP but don't expect them to agree". I thing that's "you have scary syndrome with vertibral anomalies, we'd like to eliminate that".

Hope scan goes as well as it can, contrast sounds unfun.

Anyway, a productive in person physiotherapy session today.

Basically what the physio was saying, the physio will help with my symptoms, no matter what the diagnosis turns out to be. Even if it's FND or MS, the same physio will help.
