Question: What type of doctor should I see to get a diagnosis for NSF (nephrogenic systemic fibrosis)? My 46 yr. old mom received an MRA and had contrast dye with gadolinium, and several months later experienced bone pain, muscle weakness, and difficulty walking. it has become increasingly more difficult for her to get around. She does not have kidney problems, and we think it might be NSF.

Answer: If you are concerned that your mother may be experiencing symptoms of NSF, she should see a dermatologist and they may recommend a punch biopsy to make a diagnosis. I am a lawyer who represents individuals diagnosed with NSF, and I sincerely hope that your mother is not suffering from this horrific condition.
