I saw my neurologist today. He said my test read basically that I have two Ruptured disc, and osteoarthritis , plus I guess still impingement. He basically went by the xray, instead of the MRI, although he agreed about the MRI result of some stenosis, but not really about my herniations being more than two disc or whatever.
I told him about my dad and how he doesn't believe I have a ruptured disc etc. The doctor was like did you show him the results? I'm like yeah, but when you told him there was nothing wrong, he thinks there is nothing wrong. The doctor was like "Well I said your brain was fine, but your neck is not normal. Does he think I'm a liar and gave you someone else's results and put your name on it?" Then he was just like "Well your dad is full of poo. " lol And that my dad should give me the best care and understand my limitations and just be at peace with that.
He was going to give me a shot, but I opted not to as my mom isn't comfortable with me getting them, and my dad probably wouldn't want to pay it.
He did add on Mobic 7.5mg , said I could take excedrin and if I really need to tylenol with codiene, but that sounds like a lot of stuff so I don't know...I'll try the mobic again, but it never really worked last time.
He said that he will order Physical Therapy for me again, because he needs to correct how tight my neck is and the weak/pain in my hand and wrist from it.
He also finally said the pain does go up into the ear, eye, and head. So that finally confirms that.
The only thing that bothers me about him is that he is always in a rush and I always seem to forget a few things to ask, and then he goes off on life and where I'm at in it so that waste time I could have used telling him my current symptoms.
Anyhow I see him the first week of Dec again. So till next time lol
Oh and he wants me to keep moving all the time even to do little things around the house, but it is hard cause there is nothing around the house besides work to do and Im often tired from meds and fatigue .
