I am not sure what he is thinking, I know I had to go to the ER several weeks ago (or longer ) they thought I had kidney stones, they did a Cat Scan of me and then said it was my back, and they were going to write a report and sent it my PCP and my Pain Doc, well when I seen my pain Doc the 23rd of April I was telling him about the problem I have been with my back and then the last couple of weeks I have had pain in my left arm going from my elbow into my fingers, and from my adams apple up the left side into the back of my head, and then it make me gag, an I have spasms in my throat. He didn't say allot about it other than since I had an appointment with the neurologist that he would let him handle it. But then he started asking me questions about if I ever had cancer or if it runs in my family and all kinds of things like that. Cancer runs in both sides of my family and both my parents died of it,and their parents had it, but I have never had it. Anyway I didn't think much about it since he didn't order any test! But now I kind of wonder what is on his mind???
PALady I have my cervical MRI this Friday morning, and afterwards I can go to the pain clinic and get the paper work for the Xrays and the blood work, and get those done, the Thorasic MRI is scheduled for the 15th of may, and the EMG is scheduled with my neurologist the 2nd of June and they are going to call me about the Bone Scan! I really dread that one because I had one two or so years ago and I was diagnosed with Osteopenia and they had me take this one pill once a week and you couldn't eat or drink anything for 8 hours before taking it and an hour or two after taking it and you could not lay down for a hour or two after taking it, anyway and I also have to take calcium 600mg and Vit D twice a day. well the weekly pill made me sick as a dog and sometimes just the nausea was so bad, that I just quit taking the weekly pill altogether, and that was close to a year ago! But I still take the Calcium and Vit D twice a day. I have a feeling if my Doc finds out I might be in the Dog house!!I know, I know, I should know better, but in my defense I was only border line Osteopenic!
Oh yea PALady afer I got off the internet, all of a sudden my printer kicked on and it printed out two more coupons, ( Go Figure!) anyway now I have four, so we can go out for dinner four times! You can pick the dates!
