I can't believe it!! I called to check the status, because it has been 2 months now and I thought they would have called me to see their doctors by now. The caseworker got sick and is on leave, so my application turned in on Dec 4, 2002 is still sitting on her desk. They apologized and said that they would turn it in today and ask that it be expedited. How depressing. I'm so glad I called! I'm going to my Neurologist this morning for a checkup. I am going to show him an article I found on people who had Scoliosis surgery in the 1960,70,80's. They are just now seeing the long term problems. One was Spinal Stenosis causing pain down the arms and legs. My arms and legs kill me all the time and I just blamed it on FM. Could be linked to the scoliosis surgery. Interesting site I found.
