I will post it here again, because I really need some opinions on this...

Today I was checking all my dx on the certificats on disability from the last 2 years...Then I was shocked: One of my former doctors, who obviously wanted to get rid of me as a client later, had diagnosed me with MND on the certificate, with an "g" which means: saved. He is an internist. I haven't visited him longer time now, for mentioned reasons. I wrote him now, to ask whether he has informations which I do not have...would be scandalous, if I would have a fixed MND diagnosis since over a year and I DO NOT KNOW. I hope this is just one of the nightmares which come and go....

- has the docotor informations which I do not have? (I just have reports which says...exclusion of MND in my hands) Is it possible that he got another "internal" report and would't be this scandalous? As an internist he is not allowed to give such a diagnosis
- Is it possible that he just misunderstood the hole story? But why he than wrote a "g" as saved dx behind it....

I am not in the best mood today und would like your opinion on this...

That is just bizarre but really internist? I wouldn't let one make me tea.

Many regular neurologists don't know much about MND, let alone some internist. I would listen to your neuromuscular specialist.
