I went to the pain specialist today because an injection in my neck did not work and I had been experincing bad headaches on the left side of my head behind my eye and my left arm has been freezing up. On top of this when I move my neck it sets off theracic pain.
So I go to the pain specialist and tell him my symptoms and he says, "an MRI wont tell you anything so what is the point of getting an MRI you do not want another surgery and we can just get phyisical therapy." I am sitting there going what? I tell the doctor that I want to know what is going on with my body so we can work out on how to treat the problem area he goes there still is not point we would treat you the same with out an MRI. I am getting real sceptical. The doctors goes on to say, " There is probably nothing going on with you we do not already know." Then he procedes to say well what if you were paying for the MRI and not a third party would you get an MRI? I said, " What!" I asked the doctor what was his point by what he was saying to me." He said, " the health care system is a mess and is spending to much money." I was like okay this is weird He thinks I like to suck money out of the health care system when that is far from the truth.
I am ticked off I have a real problem going on and this doctor is worried about the health care system because others screwed it up. There is a political reason behind the doctors agenda.
Please tell me what I should do I do not want to goo to this doctor anymore.
