The nurse called me at 11:58 and I wanted to be off the phone by noon because I always call my father at noon and I didn't want him to be worried. I haven't told him about my back problems and I don't intend to, until I have to. He is older and about 1300 miles away and I don't want to worry him.
Turns out I called back and she says she doesn't know for sure but it's a disk problem. I found a doctor that will take my insurance and the doctors office will fax the MRI report to them, now it's just a matter of being able to get an appointment with them.
