Well I made it to the NS with my MRI. The Radiologist read it as severe broad based central disc protrusion at C 7 T1. A Fellow MD studying under my NS walks in and says there is nothing wrong with my MRI. He was beligerent and communication was difficult due to language barrier. I was ready to leave and my husband said ,we will see our Dr and not you. My NS walks in and was cordial and said that the protrusion was normal and that no way can my symptoms be from my neck. I have chronic left arm weakness, new rt arm pain,leg weakness ,balance problems to name a few. I was dx with cervical spondylitc myelopathy after my cord compression but he insists that my ongoing symptoms are not from my neck. He was quick to get me out of there and wrote an order for me to see a Neurologist.I reminded him that my case was complex prior to this and that they needed a myelogram before to see the cord compression. His response was you had a cord compression,I fixed it and I can't help you any further. I feel so frustrated because I feel that they don't believe me. What can a Neurologist add to my situation?? I already see a Physiatrist who says I won't get better and suggests I go on disability.
I hate Drs at this point !Any advise??
