So, a new symptoms started yesterday... tingling..
In my butt and feet (both sides).
The pain was first limited to the lower back (sacral area) and right hip/inguinal area).
Now I noticed it is mainly when I'm sitting...
I am scheduled for yet another MRI today (pelvis).
I called my spine specialist yesterday, spoke with the nurse, letting her know how scared I am... Asking her that, since my symptoms are primarily when I sit, will a "laying down" MRI show anything (my initial L/S spine MRI was normal).
She showed no care that I was afraid (I made this call on the side of the road in my car - my job is a travelling nurse).
She said that there is no such thing as a sitting MRI..
And, lastly, she said, "we just may never find a cause".
WOW!!! What a great caregiver...
I don't know what else to do... I'm at such a loss that I am ready to just lay in the bed and give up (I'm 42).
Is this what healthcare is all about (an industry that I work in)
