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

I'm sorry it wasn't the news you were hoping to hear, and while its not great, it could have been a lot worse, so keep your spirits.

Beth, I'm actually over the shock and looking forward to more tests and the ending results. It's still much better than a brain tumor.

I'm glad to hear that you're over the shock, maybe I should have read all your posts first eh. Aand yes it is way better than a brain tumor, my dad died from one of them.

(((((Beth))))) I'm so sorry. Those are horrible things to have. I'm so grateful that I didn't have that.
