Neurologist appointment again

On the 18th I've got another appointment with the neurologist, followed by another IVIg session. I've got to set up an appointment with my primary physician, too. The feet are improving, but the improvement means they hurt more. Now it's not the pins-and-needles neurological pain, more and more it's just plain bruised-and-battered physical pain. The pins-and-needles mostly comes from shifts in the weather making things act up.

I need to talk to the doc about 2 things mostly. One is the fact my feet and calves are just stiff. I'm starting to get movement even in the right foot, but everything's so stiff it's not funny. And my toes aren't bending right. I think I need to go back to the physical therapist to have them have a look and see what I can do about this. The other is my weight. Mostly I need to get my primary to stop harping about it. I know it's been going up, and I know it's higher than it should be. Low activity levels do that. I've got the eliptical, I'm working on increasing the workout time as much as my knees will allow, and I'm going to get some light dumbbells and a simple bench ordered soonish to help with the arms, sit-ups and such.
