Thank you trouse. I have been to one Nero surgeon and three neurologist in the past year. The worst was that I found out my dx by reading my MRI report not by my dr. So I got sick of him and found a dr who has dealt with it before. When I saw the surgeon he said I didn’t need the surgery, but when I saw my new dr he said that I needed surgery ASAP other wise I was a sneeze away from being paralyzed. So now I’m going to the mayo clinic in AZ. He put me on a bunch of meds and I still get no relief. I have been dealing with severe headaches everyday for over a year. How long did it take you before someone believed you about your pain and symptoms? I’m really glad that your doing so great. Here in AZ there are not a lot of specialist. I guess we will see what mayo has to say.
