I was dx with Fibro 10 years ago after back, neck and shoulder injuries. Then two years ago I began having severe nerve pain on the right side of my body and was sent to a Neuro. She had MRI's of my head and neck which showed severe damage and a pinched nerve from previous whiplash. Also showed a "spot" on my brain. She suspected MS and told me come back in a few months. In the meantime she put me on Neurontin which made me incapable of functioning mentally or physically. I told her I thought I had a pinched nerve in my neck and another in my lower back. She said it is impossible to have two things wrong at the same time and she prefers to look for one single cause, such as MS. Three months later she said, you don't have MS, it's just fibromyalgia and was very angry with my questioning her diagnosis and refusal to take the drugs. My GP sent me to a psyiatrist for eval. The doc took a look at me and said, "I'm not saying you're crazy, but you look healthy to me and you have good posture. I can't help you"!!! I left there so angry, she refused to even look at my MRI's. I wanted to slap her. After another year of chronic severe pain, now barely able to walk, I went back to my GP and complained of nerve pain in my foot and leg. She said, "I've never heard of such a thing, maybe you have a 'nerve tangle'", and sent me away without even a nod. Last week I finally got an appt. with an Ortho Surgeon (without the help of my GP) who ran CT scans and mylieograms of my neck and lower back. I have pinched nerves and require surgery in both areas! He said my neck is so bad it will require surgery on 4 levels. I am so angry with all these docs and feel I should write each them a little letter. Why are doctors such idiots?? And amazingly, they still expect to get paid for providing absolutely no service!
