So I called my neurologist and went in for an appointment on Thursday eventhough i wasnt supposed to see him until the end of May. But I have been in soooo much pain everyday eventhough I am on 2 nerve pain meds. Plus one of the meds has made me gain about 25 pounds! Then I have been having new symptoms, such as bladder control issues (which I posted a bulletin about), uncontrolled reflexes, numbing of the face, memory/conversation issues etc. So when I went to the doc he said that he was very worried about me and he ordered another MRI. He is booked solid until the end of August but he told his scheduling lady to squeeze me in before the end of April because it is very important. He didnt say anything really except that he needs to see another MRI report and that I am too young to be having so many problems (I am 24). So I am really worried now. He changed my meds, increasing one and he is slowly getting me off of the one that is making me gain weight.
Then his office called yesterday and said that my insurance denied the request for an MRI. So she is going to resubmit it and call me back on Monday. So that really sucks! I might have to call my insurance and explain the situation to them.....
I am just really worried. My doc also told me that if he cannot find out what is causing everything with this next MRI that he is going to send me to the clinic at UCLA. Which I hope it doesnt come to that because that means my husband and I will have to take time off of work, pay for traveling, hotel, etc. We CANNOT afford that!
Sorry to babble on, I just needed to get my worries out and I know you guys will understand what I am going through!
