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, dear. I was really hoping it was nothing more than a trapped nerve. Though MS... I worked for several years (till I was transferred to another school) with someone who had MS and for months at a time she'd be totally OK; two or three times a year she felt a bit off and had to go to the doctor; she'd be off work for a couple of days, then she'd be fine for another four or five months. So it isn't necessarily a major problem. (((hugs)))

Thank you, Sheila for telling me about your friend. I could handle that, easily. Although they haven't done 'all' the tests yet, so I think they'll hold off on telling me that for sure until it's done. I'm thinking, swimming might be a good way to exercise and relax. So looks like we might be joining a gym.
