In my case, my primary doc ordered the MRI and then referred me to a Neuro based on the findings. Try to take one step at a time and not get ahead of yourself. Good luck.
Thank you for the input- I do have problems with getting ahead of myself- I try so hard to be proactive I'm always putting the cart in front of the horse
Good to know, though, what I can probably expect after the MRI.
hi and welcome favabean
sorry to hear you are having a tough time.
have any of your docs referred you to a dietitian or nutritionist? has anyone analysed your diet/lifestyle for any possible contributions to chronic pain, numbness, emotional and/or vision issues?
No, I have only been to the Ophthalmologist so far, and haven't brought any of the other issues up with him. I have JUST gotten insurance for the first time in my adult life, so I have a lot of catching up to do! I have been doing a ton of reading, though, on ways I can improve my diet to help out with things, especially depression. I was a vegetarian from age 12-21, and I've been a pescatarian for the past 9 years and eat a lot of veggies and fruit with not a lot of junk (though they'll have to pry my coffee out of my cold, dead hands
). So it's definitely something I'm interested in learning more about. I read some of your other posts, and they're really interesting!
