  1. Thank you all for your feedback. It is nice to know I am not alone. I actually have an appointment tomorrow with a Neurologist, so maybe they can offer some insight and testing. Brad
  2. I was wondering if anyone has experienced weakness, numbness or loss of strength in their arms and legs. I have been experiencing this frequently and am concerned that there is something more than NCS going on. Other neurological symptoms that I experience are severe headaches, slurred speech and memory loss. Thanks for the input!!!
  3. Thank you so much for your responses. I have printed the documents and plan to discuss them with my Dr. next week. I am also excited to hear that Dr. Grubb has an associate. Brad
  4. Since Dr. Grubb is apparently booked until May 2005 and my current Dr. is stumped on where to go with my NCS. I have decided to do some research on my own and maybe he will look into my findings. I have tried the following medications: Zoloft Prozac Metopropol Fludrocortisone Midodrine He does not want to try a pacemaker at this time. Does anyone have any suggestions of a medication or treatment that they have had success with? Thank you so much for your feedback. Brad
  5. Thank you for the feedback. I sincerely appreciate it. I called for an appointment today and he is booked until May......very frustrating . I will see if my current Dr. will have any luck.
  6. Hello everyone. I have been seeing a specialist in Pittsburgh, PA (Dr. Leonard Ganz), who has not been successful in finding a treatment for my NCS that has worked. Therefore, he is considering referring me to Dr. Grubb in Toledo, OH. I have heard his name mentioned on here and am looking for some feedback on his treatment. I am apprehensive about going to see him because my insurance coverage with him will be limited. Thanks, Brad
  7. I haven't lost my liscense, but my Dr. and I have an understanding that I will not drive until we agree that my symptoms have improved. It appears that when I am driving my symptoms are at their worst, possibly because I am in a seated position and my blood pressure drops. We have discussed a pacemaker, but I think the Dr. needs to exhaust the mediciation options first. I have heard both good and bad about pacemakers working for this condition, but yet that is the case with most treatments.
  8. I am a local commercial truck driver diagnosed with Neurocardiogenic Syncope. I was told by my last two Dr's that I am not permitted to drive commerically or my personal verhicle. I was wondering if anyone else has received such a restriction? I am becoming frustrated because I have tried several meds and they are not working. I am concerned about my career and my livlihood being dependent upon my ability to drive.
