Re: Lower Back & Neck Pain - What & How was you DX?
Wow, I would be asking for an MRI of your entire back. I am no doctor but boy it sounds like you may have some things going on in your cervical & Lumbar. I dont get these doctors at times, things can change & especially if there was a problem noted in the past. My surgeon just told me that often if there is a problem in the C area problems in the L area can follow. Yet when I first started seeing doctors & compaining about both areas they looked at me like I was crazy.
I also had an MRI done over a year ago that showed some minor problems, then had it repeated a few months ago & by then I needed surgery, which I had 2wks ago. Let me tell you the MRI showed a fraction of what the surgeon found when he go in there. I dont believe for a minute that those problems were minor.
I have the lumbar to deal with to & I know it can hurt like mad. This time I am not asking for the MRI on the lumbar I am tellling my doctor I want it.
That is not right with all that pain you really need to have it checked. I am angry that I was left to suffer for so long & wish I would have been more of persistant now. You know your body & that is not normal & you should not have to suffer so. Please get it checked out & let us know how it goes. Good luck, Sammy
