Hello. This is something that's bothered and annoyed me for years but I didn't do anything about it. I was having dizzy spells and saw a neurology consultant at a private hospital. During the appointment the consultant asked me to strip down to just my knickers. I was shocked at this and asked why. He said it was so that he could see if I was walking straight. He didn't offer me a chaperone and I felt extremely uncomfortable but assumed he knew what he was talking about so dutifully did as he asked. So just in my knickers I did what he told me and walked up and down the room while he watched.
He told me to get dressed again, said he thought the dizzy spells were down to stress (I was trying for a baby at the time) and I left.
It's bugged me all this time (this was some 18 years ago now) and I'd just like to know if it's normal practice during a neurology examination??
