Hi guys,

Have a Neuroligist appointment coming up in March. =D>

Afer two year of attending the pain managment clinic i have been reffered by my gp to see a neuroligist. This is to get a proper diagnosis.

So far a xray has shown a curviture in the neck and spondylitis in the C3,C4,C5, and C6. My MR showed nothing. Have just found out that they did not xray my thorasic area where i am also having problems.

What should I tell the Neuroligist and what questions should I ask?
As this is my chance to get a diagnosis at last.

What can i say to him that will make sure he listens and understands the great and chronic pain that i am in day in day out?

Please help, as i do not want to blow my only chance of getting something done at last!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  • If you are looking for a diagnosis a neurologist may not be your best bet. I would suggest a neuro surgeon or an orthopedic surgeon.

    If nothing showed up on a MRI then a fine slice CT scan my be benifical. It would show more of the bone issues.

    Just my opinion,
