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, that not-knowing is the hardest part sometimes. Lots of times actually... I think you're doing a smart thing trying to educate yourself (though man, it's not hard to get freaked out about even a hangnail when you start reading about it online :-)). Sounds like there are a lot of positive stories should that be the eventual diagnosis, so I imagine that helps too. I hope that you will get a speedy diagnosis once you see the specialist! *hugs*

Thank you, Ainm. I'm feeling better about the entire thing now. I just had to get used to the idea. :)
