Fri, May 22 2:13pm · Music Helps Me in Just Want to Talk

I could not agree more about the benefits of music. I’ve played the violin since the age of eight, but because of my severe poly neuropathy, I wasn’t able to use this as an outlet anymore. My first attempt at playing was devastating. Second attempt; I was able to hold the bell perfectly and somewhat play. By the third attempt weeks later, I was able to use vibrato and actually PLAY! Music is such a huge part of my life and I completely believe in its healing powers.

Hey @terrydclaar! Guessing my referring neurologist marked my case as urgent. Other than that, nothing to my knowledge was done. I’ve been on the Mayo waiting list since mid February & was shocked in the best way to hear from them so quickly. I was told that Mayo was alarmed by my age, the unknown cause of this ailment along with my extensive medical treatments. Grateful doesn’t begin to express how thankful I am for even being noticed. I’ll keep you guys updated!

I received a call from the mayo clinic yesterday and confirmed a video appointment that will take place in two weeks. Based on that, I will be put at the top of the list for Neurology. I actually cried happy tears at after getting off the phone.I pray that mayo has the answers that I’ve been searching for.

@rwinney I apologize for such a belated message! I’be maintained a positive mindset through this and 1,001% believe that that is a huge factor in recovery. Constantly push myself refusing to allow polyneuropathy dictate my life. I’ve made remarkable strides and really want to help others do the same. If you or anyone reading this have a connection to making a difference, I SO strongly feel the need to be involved. I hope you’re doing wonderfully and staying safe through Miss Corona.

My very best,
Laura

As far as I can see on my 600mg gabapentin prescription bottle, the manufacturer is Aurobindo Pharm. I hope this can help!
