I am 21 but I have no insurance and I am unemployed right now due to the pain. I had to quit my last job because the pain was causing me to lose focus. I have numbness in my right side of my body from time to time and now I have numbness, pain, and burning sensations in my left thigh. My back hurts all the time and it is hard to walk most of the time.

How can I get an MRI without having to dish out the money? I really need to get checked out but it seems like the ER I go to they can't help me. They just give me a number to call and those people can't help unless I have like 1500 bucks to spend. I can't even pay for food sometimes let alone 1500 bucks for an MRI....
