Hey y’all. I’m sorry I haven’t been a good member of this forum. I don’t know how to begin to explain. I don’t even remember what I have updated on. My memory is worse. Having lightheadedness and dizzy spells pretty often, like today.
OK I’ll start with the neurologist appointment. I have nerve damage at the C7 nerve root. I’ve got an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon on the 20th. My last appointment with the rheumatologist which was after seeing the neurologist and getting the results of the MRI of my neck, did not go well. I saw the lackey not the primary doctor again. I nor my husband like him at all! But despite what THE doctor has said and noted in my history and visits summaries, he thinks doesn’t think I have ANY autoimmune disease or rheumatic diseases. Yeah! I need a diagnosis and told him this. So he says osteoarthritis is what has caused ALL my problems. Everything! So I told him I don’t feel like anyone is listening to me. I know there is more going on in my body! I’ve never had any problems or accidents to cause osteoarthritis in my neck! . I got very upset with him. My husband backed me up on most everything but kept trying to hush me so the stupid ignorant jerk could just repeat himself. Ugg!!! Yes I’ve decided I’m going to find another rheumatologist.
Ok now most recently, I emailed both my rheumatologist and my neurologist last Friday. No response from the rheumatologist office at all!! Monday morning my neurologist called to schedule an appointment for Tues. Yes the next day!! I’m having all kinds of symptoms and pain that I wasn’t sure is caused by the problems in my neck and back. Evidently the neurologist doesn’t think they are and has ordered a MRI of my brain. It’s scheduled for the 22nd.
I’m sorry for keeping going on SO long. I think I’ve got to lay down now. Got some vertigo going on now. Ugh!!
Praying for each of you!! HUgs!
