I found another doctor that is an anesthesiologist and rated quite well as a pain management doctor. He takes my insurance and when I asked about
how to get a consult with this doctor, his office said I needed to have my present pm doctor to send over my records and then it would be 3 weeks before they would be able to see me. Now, if I ask for my records to be moved from one pm to another, how quickly do you think the 1st pm doctor is going to pull out from under me? I say pretty much immediately!! I think he will get angry and not see me anymore and then if this new doctor is not helpful, what do I do then? This is way over my head and emotionally wearing me out! It seems to me that it would be just as easy to stay in the dirty, police patrolled, drug selling/stealing, jerk of a doctor, no pain relief, pain management clinic than it would be to be without any help at all for the next month! O.k, I just got off the phone with my neurosurgeon's nurse. I'm upset and crying and hurting. I asked what the last MRI showed when I had it done with them and my Syrinx was from C-6 to T-2, according to the pm at my MRI in December, the Syrinx was C-1 to T-1. That is a huge difference which could explain my increase in pain to my blinding headaches. The N.S.'s office is calling to get the records from pm so that my surgeon can see if this has grown as much as it has. If it has, if in fact the pm group read the MRI incorrectly then good, if not, this is not good at all.
