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, honey. Huge hugs.

MS is a tough diagnosis and there are several kinds. And right now, you don't know you have MS, only that it's a possible explanation of the results you have. What's important is that it's a manageable condition, if it's what you have. Try not to worry too much until you know for sure.

Thank you, Morgan. I won't know until the specialist does more tests. How exciting, eh? But I'm trying not to worry or fret. I'm just glad it wasn't a brain tumor. So actually, this is a relief.
