    davrunner - You are another example where MRIs did not find "the problem".  The myelogram found it.  When a doctor wants to use only an MRI to diagnose a problem, it is time to get another opinion.  An MRI is just one of many diagnostic tools available in trying to diagnose a spine issues. 

  • Not every neurologist is the same I've been to several that bluntly come out and told me I was not in need of a neurologist but need mental help , I even had one yell at me loud enough that the whole office heard him , I had been dealing with doctors since 99 when I was hit by a car walking into my job,  I started getting copies of every visit and had them write what the where telling me  that way when time for next appointment I'd automatically show them this is what was said and what we decided to do finally this year I was referred to neuro surgeon who was going to do a band aide surgery but after reviewing my records and see I have a blockage in the head decided on the epidural injection,  which I just had done on the 28th so far no difference , but unsure who your insurance is but mine is b/c b/s out of Arkansas and they have what's called Advanced Medical which is free if insured with them , but it's a group of doctors who view all medical records and give advice on what they think your doctor need to do or what doctors you may need to see unsure if this is helpful to you but may want to see if your insurance may have something similar  , it did help me with several things that my doctors missed .

    Best of luck to you and hope you find the help you need soon please keep us updated .

    May God Bless You
