I keep saying things can't get worst, and I'm always so optimistic...and then today...and big old slap in the face! I had an MRI done of my lower back by my family doc and he said I had two bulging disc and so did the Radiolgist...they sent me to a neurosurgeon. I get there and this guy tells me that basically I don't have two bulging disc that I am perfectly healthy. (I have been seeing Dr. Heffez in Chicago for 6 months and he has me wearing a cervical collar for temporary traction) when my neck bends forward my face and arms and hands go numb! My hands still go numb but not as often. My feet and legs still go numb too. Anyhow this told me that there was nothing wrong with me even tho when he ran this thing that looks like a spur up my left leg I couldn't feel it, but when he did it to my right leg I just about jumped off the table! Then he informed my husband and I that they will never find anything ever wrong with me. That me wearing this collar is just a total waste and it just draws attention to me and makes me get pitty. Then he walked out of the room! I burst into tears! I cried and cried and cried! I don't know how much more I can deal with! I use to be such a fighter! I drag myself out of bed just for my daughter and my husband with the hope of a better day and the hope of someone making me better only to find idiots like this around the corner. Each one worse then the last! How much are we suppose to take! How much salt are they going to throw in our wounds! Please tell me!
