I am not sure where to post this. I have a question. Isn't my medical treatment between me and the doctor? My NS's nurse is trying to take over my medical care. I have been waiting for her to call me back since Monday. She finally did this morning. She told me that she didn't want me to have another MRI. Well, I am having major sciatica and weakness in my left leg. She suggested I go to PT. I told her I cannot afford it. It is actually cheaper for me to have another scan even if it comes out normal. She is not a nurse practitioner, she just a regular RN. Any advice would be helpful thanks.
