1166523 tn?1264364643 Hi janereed, I went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN in Oct 09. When I first walked in it was a dr that was training to be a consulting dr and he told me that they believed I had a stroke and that I was gonna stay like I was without improving. Well I blew up at him because he hadn't even examined me or anything. And all my other dr's from home had ruled out a stroke and said MS. Well the consulting dr. (Dr. Keegan) came in and did an examination and was very nice.
1264955 tn?1381782221 Has anybody here been to the neurology clinic at the Mayo or in their inpatient pain treatment program?
Avatar m tn Some here on the board are not real pleased with the Mayo clinic. It seems they have their own set of standards to give out a dx of MS. I personally know nothing about them and wish you the best....hoping for that answer.

Avatar f tn There is the maze procedure.

Avatar m tn now she has refered me to the Mayo clinic, in Jacksonvill Fl. My syptoms started almost four months ago. Most of my symptoms have continually progressed. I am extreamly worried I will get worse. My life has changed drastically,and I am ver scared and confussed,that they cannot find out whats wrong with my body. I have fallen down four times since this has started. If you have any advice please let me know. Hopefully the Mayo Clinic can find out. I leave for Jacksonville Fl next week.
Avatar m tn Truthfully, I've heard one of the best MS Clinics in the US is the Mellen Center at Cleveland Clinic. You might try checking out They list all the clinics available, etc. My neuro said the clinic at Cincinatti isn't that great but thinks Cleveland Clinic is really good. I've never heard of the Mayo Clinic being highly rated for MS, but more for heart desease.
Avatar n tn Started in Nov and ruled out vision with eye doc, ruled out sinus infection, so then to general doc, referred to cardiologist. Ended up at Mayo Clinic in MN for 2 weeks of testing. Cardiac exams and tests all normal: included 24 hour BP monitor, 24 hr holter monitor EKG, standard EKG, both treadmill stress plus dobutamine stress test and two echocardiograms - all normal.
Avatar m tn Lyme disease can cause olfactory [smell] hallucinations -- I have had them. The ENT (ear/nose/throat) MD I saw didn't know what it was, but my Lyme dr did. They come and go. However, if you don't have any of the other signs or symptoms of Lyme, then I would think the likelihood that you have Lyme is low. However, I'm not a doctor, so can't say for sure.
237053 tn?1258828426 I went to the Mayo Clinic in AZ in January - hoping to find some answers. I will say that it is a very well run facility - but don't pin your hopes on a big "well known" facility to solve everything for you. The neurologist that I saw at the Mayo clinic didn't want to see my timeline or my list of symptoms - although at the end of my initial appointment, he did take my list of symptoms to include in my chart.
Avatar f tn Drs here say it will get worse and can only treat the symptoms. I want to go to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, which is cash. Would you recommend doing so.? All her Drs, dont talk together and feel she is on too many meds. People say UCLA has testing...saw one nero dr there no testing was ordered only assessment.
1003418 tn?1250185999 Its months before I can get in to see the Rheumatologist so my doctor is trying to send me to Mayo clinic. Any suggestions? I am a bit concerned about the persistant IGM and IGG levels as this could be a problem with the bone marrow??
764912 tn?1322711843 Hey all, Well I am still at Mayo clinic in MN. They did confirm a stroke and did a TEE--to look at my heart. Today I have neuropsych testing due to memory and change in personality issues. Then Tues I see my Neurologist again. I sure hope we get some road to take....thinking of you all.
Avatar f tn You can go online and register or call to set up appointments at Cleveland Clinic and the MAYO Clinic. MAYO has three clinics in the U.S. You do not need a referral to get in to either of these clinics. I have also heard of people the drive there and tell them their symptoms and sometimes they get in right away. So, you might want to consider checking them out online and trying to set up an appointment. I hope this will help you, as I know how frustrating this can be and disabilitating.
Avatar f tn He did have a videostroboscopy last week and the speech pathologist said that he is having spasms and suggested we get a second opinion as to what is causing this. They suggested going to the Cleveland Clinic or the Mayo clinic which we can't afford to make it there at this time. He also has a history of chronic back pain and had back surgery in 2004 and has a list of medications also if needed.
549269 tn?1236130637 Mini strokes as they are called. I am in Rochester MN right now at the Mayo Clinic to see several doctors. YEsterday at my hotel I was taken by ambulence after having sudden severe dizzyness, slurred speech, left sided weakness, difficulty walking, and possible seizures. After 1 1/2 hours in the ER and several tests I started to return to normal. I see an stroke doctor today and Dr Oro in January. Should I call Dr Oro about my symptoms?
Avatar m tn So Here goes my Cyberchondriac tendency, I looked up all of my symptoms in the last 5 years, and the closest match is MS. So I placed a call to the Mayo clinic and they did a phone "interview process" asking age, symptoms, etc. I received a call back 3 days later telling me I have an appointment scheduled for multiple test over a 4 day period.
Avatar f tn t find a way to help her within six months, he will write her a referral to the Mayo clinic or Shands teaching hospital. Then our insurance company will have to cover it. The saga conyinues...
Avatar f tn Maybe I was too harsh about Mayo. To be fair to Mayo Clinic, I do think they do have some very good doctors there, maybe it's just hard to get a neuro diagnosis - as it seems to be most other places in this country - so what's new? I did really think the Mayo radiologist who looked at my films was excellent - he found a couple of things the original outside radiologist did not notice such as brain mass loss.
Avatar f tn I decided that I should travel to the United States and hopefully get a diagnosis. I know that Mayo clinic and Cleveland clinic have a good dysautonomia clinics but I don't know which one should I choose so I would appreciate any suggestions !!! Also I know healthcare in the US is so expensive and since I don't have insurance I wonder how much such a visit to one of those hospitals will roughly cost ?I know it's hard to tell but I'm asking for a roughly cost. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I am on four medications: Bystolic (40 mg / day), Hytrin (12 mg / day), Benicar (40 mg /day), and Clonidine (2 / day). I started only on Inderal 20 years ago to control mild hypertension and paroxysmal tachycardia. History of possible Lyme Disease otherwise nothing remarkable. A year ago I started having wildly fluctuation hypertension (normally 120/70 went to 240/115 in seconds - repeatedly with no pattern, no identifiable triggers).
