The doctor seemed certain. I got a printout with the results from my evaluation. She said I had the "textbook" symptoms. There wasn't any relief or anything when she told me. But it's still good to get it "official."

I have to go down to Washington D.C. so they can do a brain scan of some kind. I have headaches and she thinks perhaps they can track down where they are coming from.

Thanks everybody for your support.

I think I remember when I got diagnosed at age ten or so. It happened soon after my first epilleptic fit, after a nurse talked to my mum about my odd walking posture at the time. Until about two months ago I hadn't related what happened there to me having AS. Or maybe it for my epillepsy. In any case, I had to get these weirdo suction cup thingies with wires coming out of them, similar to the suction cups used to keep plushies stuck onto windows. I was relaxed, as I knew that it'd all be okay.

I've no idea what this process will be, but I'm just putting in what I've experienced so that, if you do need suction-cups-with-wires-coming-out-of-them-that-are-attached-to-the-computer to perform the diagnosis, at least you know now that it'll be just fine.

Glad you are getting some help with your questions.....please keep us informed about the "brain scan"(I really want one,I think they will find the alian implant I have always suspected...lol,sort of)
I have a lot of headaches too,so am interested in your results.

Scanned me for a brain. The results were negative. I know there's something in there tough, because it itches sometimes.
