    What kind of doctor are you seeing? If this is your primary, and you are experiencing new , worrisome symptoms, you should be seen and evaluated by a spine surgeon.

    do you need a referral for your insurance? if not, you can look up spine surgeons or call the hospitals around you for one.....
    you can also use the find a doctor feature at the top of the page or found here........https://www.spine-health.com/doctor/find-a-physician

    you can also go to your medical insurance website or booklet and find a listing of physician specialities that you can use to find a spine surgeon as well. i suggest making an appointment with an ortho and a neuro spine surgeon.......that way, you get ideas from both regarding what needs to be done, and you can decide which one you are more comfortable with.
