I just found out about 3 months ago that I have cervical degenitive disk disease. I am in alot of pain! My doctor has put me on disability, now I am at home trying to take care of a 11 yr old daughter with an income of $1080.00 a month. The pain seems to never go away. I take morphine and flexerrals for pain put it is not working! Anthem Blue cross is my insurance provider and they denied my surgery. I will lose all feeling in my right arm if I dont get the surgery. I tried to get medi-cal, they denied me. Told me to go after my ex-husband for more child support. Called CMS, They told me that there is nothing they can do for me! What do I do? Please someone tell me how do I live with the pain and the fact that slowly I will have no feeling in my rt arm and eventully my legs. I am 35 yrs old,scared and in pain. Does Any One Have Any Ideas!!!!
