Have posted before I had a Motion-Xray that showed I had permanent Cervical Instabilty severe enough unable to work, I had this MOtion Xray done because a previous MRI did not show anything remarkable. The Chiropractor then said it would be helpful to get different views of the Atlantoaxial so when I went to a Neurologist he ordered another MRI with those recommendations.
Now this second MRI comes back normal and now the Neurologist insists its coming from my brain and not my neck. Then he suggested a referral to a Psychiatrist for perhaps Somatic disorder or PTSD causing it? Is this something Neurologists typically do just because an MRI is normal? I am quite upset as Ive had this for over 20 year I can tell real pain and its defiantly coming from my neck! Ive also had specialists tell me they can feel the injury in my neck so how would he explain that?
I told him I was not open to that idea so please dont follow through with this suggestion to a Psychiatrist, regret having seen him. So do Neurologists send all patients to a Phychiatrist if MRI is normal? Seems pretty harsh and absurd?
