They’ll ask questions about your symptoms & perform a physical like any other drs appointment. Then they’ll take it from there. You’ll be fine, best of wishes 🌟

Hi Stacie I waited appt 2 month but I did speak to ask gp if can go private because of pain . I researched it was 250 for apt . But gp decided to contact them to push it quicker due to pain. On the apt ask to describe what has been going on, history of symptoms and frequency. He watched me walk and then did reflex tests that gp had also done . He also did gentle tests with pin prick to test sensation. Please do not worry you may find relief and reassureance that someone has listened . Please write a daily diary of what happens and symptoms and questions you want to ask x you will be fine . You can also phone the dept to check when apt I did and luckily I got a cancellation the following day . You could try it xgood luck sweetheart ❤️

Not in UK, but as far as a neurologist checkup, it depends on what symptoms you were referred for? Was it tingling, numbness, nerve pain?

What a beautiful day, it's 78° here, but my joints, muscles & fatigue is off the charts. Does anybody else feel this way when the weather changes.
I'm kinda blue today, I just finished a coarse of antibiotics & steroids & the side effects, of course we're fun. NOT. I'm feeling better from the Upper respiratory infection but the colitis, bladder, fibro & fatigue 😩 can be very depressing.
I know where to get peace from but sometimes it helps if someone can relate.
I've always been the encourager today, I need to be lifted up. After twenty two years, I'm a little worn today.
Hope everyone is doing well.
