Question Re: MRI help for a new comer

Hi WebDozer and thank you very much for your reply :-)

I initially thought carpal tunnel when I first saw my GP, but after her examination she sent me for x-rays,

( I've had many cervical x-rays done at the hospital over the last decade after a car accident where I went through the windshield, sounds worse than it was, broken arm and concussion only )

Anyways, the radioligist asked for the MRI based on significant change from previous x-rays and scans,
There was only minimal DDD 2 yrs ago.

When I started having the other symptoms the doctor did suggest possible MS, but that with my age that was unlikely.

Yesterday at my appointment when she went over my MRI, all I got from her was that I had pressure on my spinal cord and nerves and needed to see the neurosurgeon.

I'm at a loss as what to do next, it's very hard to contradict your GP here , as we have a waiting list just to get a family doctor, never mind anything else,
and I really don't want to be left in limbo because I questioned her, I wish it were different and I had the freedom to see a second, third or even fourth doctor.

Thank you again for taking the time to answer :-)))
