Well, my insurance wasn't in the computer soon enough for me Not to have to pay for my visit today, but it was in there when I went to the Pharmacy....They would only cover 80 of my Roxicet 15's...Strange?
 
Anyway, my Doc did some nerve tests on my left leg and said that I needed another MRI done...Cannot wait for that!!!  Not.  I have had so many freakin tests and procedures...I am so worn out from them.  Plus I have Bronchitis, and I really don't want to deal with that on top of being sick.
 
Anyway again, He did that reflex test and my right leg almost kicked him "in the you know where"  but my left leg hardly moved at all.  Huh?  So it's off to the MRI... Just waiting for it to be scheduled.
 
I went to the store earlier to get some kitty food and my leg just gave out and I almost bit the dust...right there in Target... Then out in the parking lot...
 
I hope it's nothing too serious, I consider myself lucky to be able to get around like I do.. I'm scared of being unable to walk...

Me,
I'm glad you're going to get another MRI. The leg weakness might indicate that a motor nerve (influences muscle moverment) is involved. And you do want to find that out, although I know about the test after test after test thing. I hope you can feel a little better first - get rid of the bronchitis.

Sure wouldn't want to be lying down for an MRI with nasal and chest congestion!

I hope you start feeling better soon.

Yeppers Me, you do need another MRI. But, can you do one with the coughing thing going on from the bronchitis? If you cough and move you know it can affect the quality of the images and if you move too much they won't be able to do it. Oh my, come on get over this crud fast. I would let them know when they tell you its scheduled if you are still sick or not, may be better to reschedule once you are over the junk......Susie

Oh me,
I'm sorry you're feeling so bad. I just hate that.
You can't be running around getting MRI's, etc. when you have Bronchitis.
My Bronchitis comes precious close to turning to Pneumonia every
time.
Be so careful with it.
But get your MRI, etc.
Maybe there's a cough suppresant you could take while you have your MRI??
