and it is not the pain meds, lol
Yesterday I had another series of neck xrays, while leaving the tech said to me they are probably going to want an MRI. I said I already had an MRI in March, he said "this year?", I replied yes and he said they might want another. I am thinking this is the military, no way I am getting 2 MRIs in one year.
During my visit with the Dr he said he thinks it is something with my neck and he doesn't think the nonfusion (0r CTS)is causing my neck/shoulder/arm/hand pain. He said the bridge was not good but that shouldn't be causing my symptoms. He said he would like an MRI. I told him I had one in March and a CT mylogram in May. He asked me if I had a problem with having another. Not claustrophobic, no problem. Since my last couple Dr visits have ended with me in tears, and with different diagnosis. I was just sitting there amazed, he believes me. I hear about the difficulties some of you have had with getting MRIs and it hasn't always been easy for me either. Shocked!
Then I got to thinking about the xray tech saying what he said after looking at my xrays. Now I am wondering if they finally see something suspicious. The ortho DRs were not forthright with my first MRI in 2009, and I finally got the full picture from my primary care a month later.
Has anyone felt that things are being left unsaid until further confirmation when dealing with their MDs? Just pondering... :??
