Neck issues again

2 weeks ago I was taken from the home by ambulance. My legs just quit working. I could not stand up without falling and could not move my legs. This lasted about a half hour. The Er did a CT scan of my neck and stated all hardware is in place and not broken. BUT they believe all this is from my neck and I need to see a neurosurgeon. Not one neuro would take me on saying my case is too complicated. My family Dr finally found one that takes on complex cases the problem , 3 month wait. I have fallen numerous times since but no long term feeling loss. I had never seen a copy of any of my scans since my last big surgery and when I saw my family Dr she showed me the scan from the ER. I about fell off my chair. There is nothing but hardware, you cant even tell I have any cervical disc. The number of screws, wires and plates not to mention rods ( one coming thru the back of my neck to the point you can see the color of the metal) were unbelievable. Ok now i feel justified in the way I feel. It is like any Dr is afraid to touch me, except my family Dr as she says you dont scare me.lol. My options while waiting is go to the er. As we all know that will do no good. They just shoot you full of drugs and send you home. Iam on a cancellation list but told that it is highly unlikely there will be one. So here I sit scared to death of my future and what all this means.
