Re: waiting out a spinal headache

Thank you, that is helpful. Were you able to go back to work the day after the blood patch? I definitely feel better today, but my pain is always worse at night so that worries me. I'll see how I...

Re: waiting out a spinal headache

oh, another question - before the blood patch will they do a CT or MRI or anything to look for a leak or will they just assume it's there?

Re: waiting out a spinal headache

Thanks. I have tried caffeine for several days, and it only seems to help temporarily. The ER anesthesiologist I saw last Wed. said if it wasn't better in a week to come back for the blood patch, so...

How does everyone else deal with waiting 3 months between appointments? I've been on this awful roller coaster almost a year now, and I have been to 2 Neurologists. I am finally seeing an MS...

Re: Neurologist won't look at MRI film

Well I'm just confused. I don't understand why what he told me contradicted all the tests he ordered. If he doesn't know what it is and feels he has to rule out MS, that's fine, but why say it's...

Neurologist won't look at MRI film

I had my first Neuro appointment and I don't think it went very well. I'm not sure if this Dr. specializes in MS but I asked and he said he has over 100 patients who have MS.

Re: new here. in limbo land, I guess

Every day it's like I have a new symptom. Is this normal? it's driving me crazy. I just want to feel normal again.

Re: new here. in limbo land, I guess

Thanks MSJayhawk. I've actually read the McDonald Criteria so I know what to expect.

Hi, I've been reading this board for a few weeks. I don't even know where to start.

About a month ago the temperature in Chicago went over 100 degrees and I had something similar to what I now...
