I have been having many problems for months now, I have had numbness, leg pain, loss of bladder, tremors, blindness/blurry eyes.  I went to the Neuro Dr. yesterday and he said my MRI came back ok, I have bulging discs and I have had 3 back surgeries for sciolosis.  he don't think it is anything, he put me on an anit-depression drug.   And said he wants to see me in a month. 
What do I do?  A lot of mornings I can barely get out of bed, because of the fatigue, weakness and pain.  Anybody have any suggestions?  I would really appreciate it.  :)

I'd first go back to the doctor who diagnosed the bulging discs and scoliosis, tell him of your problems, and see if there is something wrong with those areas of your back again (except for the blurry eyes, all your other symptoms you listed could be related to the back problems). And then see your neuro in a month and tell him what the other doctor might have said.
...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....

Hey Melissa

Welcome to the board! My goodness, i'm sorry u'r going thru all this! I agree with Uppity, go back to that doc and have him explain more about the back probs. Seems if u'r still having probs maybe something like physical therapy may be in order. U may need to see an eye doc after the neuro as well. These could be unrelated and just may need to be addressed one on one. Best wishes to u and please let us know how u'r doing.
