He said that if what I had was neurological then it would have shown on the electrophysiological tests. And I did not match with MG patients because I had had breathing problems during the day and not really anything at night.
He said that Mestinon can work in a placebo fashion when questioned why it was working so well with my breathing symptoms.
I sincerely hope that was the last time I have this trouble flying abroad and if I do get it again then it will be on the outward
journey and goodness forbid not
on the return flight back home.........
But I am
allowed to call the hospital and have the chance to´prove myself´with a tensilon test, new SFEMG or some sort of blind Mestinon test or other if symptoms get worse again.
I didn´t bother to tell him I was scheduled for a pulmonologist appointment in a couple of days
because I´m quite sure he thought that it wasn´t necessary.
