I just read a post that totally ticked me off. It's about someone with some legitimate symptoms associated with cervical spinal issues (I've had those same symptoms) and a doctor and a NS who told her that her symptoms couldn't be caused by her cervical disc problems. It's such a crock!
It makes me wonder:
1. How many of you have had one doctor read an MRI and tell you "it's not your spine" only to go to another doctor and have them tell you that you need surgery?
2. How many of you have had the above happen and ended up having permanent damage because of the above negligent, lazy doctor?
3. How many of you have had your doc or NS tell you "you're young - you can handle the pain" or "you're too young for surgery, so you'll just have to suck it up"?
This is an issue near and dear to my heart I guess because I started having pain last April and was on the fast track to surgery by October because I had a fantastic team of doctors and surgeons. I wish everyone could be so lucky.
