Thank you so much for the information. I'm glad your doing well. After reading your information I realized that our symptoms are very similar. I have noticed some loss of muscle and I do get some pretty bad headaches. I also feel like I don't know how to walk. I have not told my Dr about my muscles because I really did not realized it until I read your note. Thank you so much. I'm going to call Mayo ASAP. I hope they take my insurance. Best wishes.

@candrgonzalez Here is a page where you can check what insurance is accepted at each Mayo campus. Dr. Fogelson is in Rochester, MN, and you can request him if you wish. I highly recommend him. He's s a great surgeon and all around nice guy which helps when you are the patient who is worried. He is a neurosurgeon and also has orthopedic spine training. He is one of Mayo's best and highly respected. His nurses are also very kind and supportive. https://www.mayoclinic.org/patient-visitor-guide/billing-insurance/insurance/accepted-insurance/contracted-health-plans

Hi. Called Mayo in Florida (where I live) and unfortunately they don't take my medical insurance. Had 3 injections on my neck, feeling a little better (about 10%). Hope to improve a little more with each passing day.
