Update: Unbearable buttock and sciatica pain from a minor fall last month. Taking 1200 Neurontin (up from my 100mg/day fibro meds) and 6000mg Tylenol/day with no reduction in pain. Can't sleep or get comfortable at all. Getting worse. I went to the local health clinic, here in the boondocks yesterday, but they told me they couldn't help and for me to go to the emergency room in the next city over. I'm arranging for care for my pets and house and am going to the emergency room tommorrow a.m.
Dax007 was kind enough to answer my earlier post and suggest I try to get a TESLA 3 MRI and hopefully get multiple opinions from neuros. For a newbie to walk into a pretty good emergency room ....What should I ask for? What should I not settle for? What relief from pain should I expect?
Because I lost my good health insurance, my specialists aren't available to me anymore. So my options are Medicaid clinics and the emergency room.
Any advice for my emergency room visit would be most appreciated.
