Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
I've been in an unbelievable amount of pain and have had three CT scans since July. My doc gave me the option to have an MRI even though I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator--he wants to find out what's going on and the CT scans aren't giving him enough information.
The stim battery is located in my upper abdomen area and I have two leads on my spine. Everything I've read states we cannot do this with the stim. My doc said if I start feeling warm to cease with the MRI. I know this is unusual and know my doc wouldn't put me in harms way. I'm wondering if anyone else has gone through this.
Has anyone had an MRI with the stim? If so, did you have any complications?
Thanks for any feedback.
