Hey Ang: Just wanted to say hi and hope you are feeling better. An MRI sounds like a good, reasonable request to me. Passing out isn't normal - even for whiplash - now, maybe the concussion - but, if you are passing out from the concussion, you truly need to have a CT or MRI to make sure there isn't more going on. Even a concussion shouldn't cause you to pass out.
Just my unsolicited thoughts - I just wanted to tell you I was thinking about you and hope you are feeling a little better. Please post and let me know what you find out.
Also, not to sound completely stupid, but under DX you have PCOS - what is that? Just curious.
Hey Ang: Sorry to be so dumb - thanks for clarifying the PCOS! I can't wait to hear what your PCP says - I think PT might be a good idea. Also, RehabNurse has a good point - xrays don't show a lot other than bone and even the CT doesn't show great soft tissue info. I hope that the PCP will order the MRI. Let me know. Headaches are about the same - I worked last night and took only the Relpax before going to bed (no Dilaudid or steroid). Today, I have had a moderate headache most of the day and have felt exhausted but so far, no full-blown migraine with vomiting. So, I guess I can live with that.
RehabNurse, I am glad to see you on here - I have been worried about you. How are you feeling? Let me know.
Gotta run kids around to all the after-school activities.
