  • Ok this one will cost you with no ins. You need an MRI after 18 months 19 docs, my Enviormental doc figured it out. He sent me to ER for an MRI and the hosiptal won't let me leave. The tricky part is the longer you wait the harder it is for the surgeon to do anything. I also have RLS (restless leg symtom) I have a nerologist and a nerosurgeon. Big money with these guys. Your family doc can order the MRI but will send you in the end to a specialist. Now for RLS I take Requip which really helps with the legs at night. I too started to thing I was crazy and many docs did too but you must believe in yourself and keep fighting to get answers. I had no idea that the back or spinal cord controls everything!!! They put a titanium disk and a steal cage in my neck and I have improved 90%. Still have a way to go because my back is trashed. So if you hurt your back at work you can get help. I will chat on the phone if you want advise. Leave your email and we can exchange numbers. Where do you live? Loisns.

  • Hello,My pain started in my chest and arm. Went for a stress test and wore a heart monitor for a month. All fine. Over a year went by and took Aleve for the pain and worked. Then the second year I was having a hard time walking. Another year went by. I fell off a dumpster in Jan 03 didn't get my MRI's till May 05 by this time the stuff that comes out of the disk in my neck harded like cement. The only thing they could do was remove it. Had the dumb Chiro sent me to a real doc I would of fared much better. Have your neuro get a MRI first. He will want to do a EMG first but they hurt. My email is loiskerr@comcast.net if you would like to exchange phone numbers so we can chat. I have great docs in MI that could help you. What neuro are you going to see? Know that I couldn't list all my weird symtoms but could tell you the whole story. Email me so we can chat. Lois :rolleyes:
