Finally Getting Docs To Listen To Me

Posted Jul 25 2011 12:10pm
I just had an MRI of my spine because I told the doc about how my leg weakness is affected by the way I sit and he agreed that it was suspicious that it was a  positional thing, whereas my last doc just brushed it off.  Now I don't want to have a spinal tumor, but I at least want to be taken seriously!  Also, I am going back to physical rehab, probably tomorrow, and am getting a new AFO, one that fits.  I was told I could be in rehab for a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on how long it takes me to be able to get up stairs.  Now all this is dependent on the results of the MRI, if I do have a spinal tumor that will change things.  I don't know what to think though because they have raised the dose of my steroids and I am still very weak so its not just the swelling that is causing the weakness.   I have no idea.
