Dr Gilchrist is a highly educated neurologist who came highly recommended. My only complaint is that he withholds answers to questions. When I asked him if my condition can be causing pain, he said no. After I got home I began researching the medications I take for this condition. I found that pain similar to what I’m experiencing is a side effect of my meds. I wish he would’ve expanded his answer to tell me that. Because when he told me ‘no’ I thought he was telling me I’m nuts. I have no pain.
