My doctor just called.

The spine MRI showed a ruptured disc, but he said if I do alright with it like it is, I should leave it. He doesn't recommend surgery to anyone when it involves the back. Then he said that the brain had a lot of white spots, which usually means, MS. I have to see a specialist in November for that. The soonest I could get in, was November 7th. So for right now, I will just do some research on MS and find out what it is. This wasn't the news I was hoping for. I was really hoping for a pinched nerve. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'm in a little bit of shock right now. I'm anxious to see the Neurologist so he can explain things to me.

Hugs, Patt

Oh, I am sorry. At least, as Caarianna said, it's possible to get long remissions (which is very small comfort, I know). I hope the specialist has encouraging news for you. ::hugs tightly::

My doctor was really happy about the results because he was afraid I had a brain tumor. MS is much easier to deal with than a brain tumor. So I've got a much better outlook then if I was having to deal with brain tumor. Right? I'll be fine, it's just a little bit of a shock to begin with. I'm better at the news already.
