Not so close to Montreal but you never know when I might travel, I'd gladly take the info anyway, thank you so much! I am yes, in the States, Colorado actually, and was looking for something just like that. I figured there would be a clinic here but it is not so I believe. Our healthcare could improve for certain.
I forgot to mention too, the MRI would benefit, b/c while the doctor confirmed some damage to some areas, he has not look at the areas most affected, and might recommend some additional treatments, though by and large, no, my treatment won't change too much; His diagnosis is not confident however, they are debating between the types of arthritis that I have. It's kind of a joke. I guess I am one of those people that doesn't fall into the cluster of "ordinary" but rather am "outside the circle" as my doctor (yes rheumy) says, but still need treatment. An MRI might put me in the "correct" circle. I am pretty much on the RA roll standard treatment with autoimmune suppressants, TNF blockers and pain meds etc. I also get cluster migraines and may have vasculitis, all of which I am told are associated with the autoimmune process and most people with autoimmune conditions have more than one problem. My father had crohns or ulcerative colitis I believe and psoriatic arthritis. It is quite a bit gathering it all in isn't it? I just am hoping too I can start feeling some relief soon.
