I saw my neurosurgeon yesterday. He has no idea why I feel worse. The only thing he did or said that made any sense to me was ordering an MRI and CT Scan. I don't know why he wants both and neither does the imaging center but ok fine. He told me that I might need to see a neurologist as something else could be cause all my pain and problems. He went on to say it could be caused by a number of things besides the fusion including a vitamin deficiency. WTF! Vitamin deficiency can cause numbness and burning sensations in my feet???? I just looked at him as he walked out after that comment.
I am trying to see another doctor after the MRI and CT are done next week. I have lost faith and trust in my current neuro. ~X(
Add to this the fact that I was overcharged for my back brace and his office manager refuses to refund me the $275 I'm owed. She says that claims are still pending and this MIGHT be owed on my part. X( My insurance can't do anything about me being overcharged and my credit card company says that since I signed a charge slip in the office that I really can't dispute it through them. I can file a complaint with the BBB (he's not a member) and/or the Attorney General's Office.
I'm so drained right now. Physically, emotionally, mentally and every other way possible right now. I say the PM today. Was put on Lyrica and dropped Klonopin. She wants to see copies of my films and report as well. I broke down in tears from frustration (and AF showed this AM.....TMI I know but it does influence my emotional side). She wanted to know if I ever think of hurting myself to which I quickly said no.
The songs Tomorrow from Annie (Thanks Wrambler
) and Marley's Everything's going to be alright keep replaying in my mind.
