Re: neck &head pain

Depending on your insurance, your regular doctor may need to referr you to a neurologist.

If you don't need a referral call a neurologist to schedule appointment,



Wish you well

Re: neck &head pain

Sheila call your insurance company and ask if you would need a referral to a neurologist ? Your insurance may give you a name of a neurologist that is in your network.

I have never heard of waiting years for MRi .
Since you are in so much pain, you may need to go to the emergency room hospital, they will order you a MRi.


Wish you well
