    Hello Everyone:
    I wanted to give an update on what's been happening with me. I saw the Nueosurgeon last & he referred me to Pain Mgt. Well, went to that appt the doctor was a total jerk. He had the nerve to tell me that all the problems I was having is due too my Fibromyaligia. I told him that was bull and also I didn't ask to see him anyway. He also told me that I need to contact my Rheum & let him know that je should take me off the Vicodin & give me something else, and his last commment was that he wasn't going to wrtie me a script for any narcotics. I told him I never asked him for anything & told him thanks for nothing... So therfore I did send an email & also placed a call too the Nuerosurgeon about the jerk (PT). So tommorow I shall be calling a new PT that I located via the internet. On Friday, I saw an Orthopedic surgeon for a 2nd opinion & he took x-rays & stated that I do have a herniated disc L-1 S1 and that there's a slight bulge there, however he wanted me to get a another test done to see if I have bone spurs... I tell you all of this has been very frustrating & depressing as well. I had to drop out of school because of the pain. So therfore I just pray that I can get some solid answers this week. On Tues I have an appt to see an Infectious Disease Specialist which I've had to wait 1 month for this appt. I have coxsackie virus b, and not sure what stage it's in etc.. I'll keep the group informed of all & any other developments. May Everyone Have A Good Week!

    Sorry you had to run into a jerk--I am sure I have met his cronies, many times over! It does sound as if you are making progress, since the ortho surgeon, found a problem.
    Hope your infectious dis. doc appt. goes well, and that the new PT pans out!

    How to put this delicately so I don't seem too nutz. I'm surprised more imbecilic, uncaring, ashole doctors aren't firebombed. If we weren't so tired we could. Just kidding!
