I had an MRI done, and it showed the beginnings, or mild, degenerating disc disease. Lymenet talks about it being caused by lyme. So, I'm hoping the appt. with a neurosurgeon is a long wait and the lyme treatment makes a difference soon. So far, they aren't moving very quickly to get back to me, so maybe I'll have improvement by the time I get in to see one and they do their own tests. The one plus is that my insurance won't be turning down any pain meds I may need, because this is now in my record. Anyone else have this to add to their list of diagnoses?
