went to a Nervoligist on Monday. He told me that I didn't need an MRI which is what my REGULAR Dr. ordered for me...the specialist told me there was nothing that an MRI could tell me that he couldn't...My Regualar DR Excepted the specialist to give me a nerce condince test with leads...I got a reflex test..the specialist never put his hand on me...I was trying to tell him my symptoms which I had wrote down, and he flat out told me to put it away and let him do his job..He told me after about 8 minutes that I needed PT and to lose weight...He didn't care that the insulin I am taking is for diabetics that are insulin resintent and stores in the fat cells and it is hard to lose weight let alone have the energy to take a walk when you have(diabetic nerophy) and you can hardly walk without pain...

So today (Thursday) I went back to my regular dr. and told him that the specialist was a jerk and very arigant. so we talked about other obtions and agreed to do the MRI and chiopractic treatment..had my first treatment today and I feel better, and on Monday I go for a second treatment and my MRI... So we will meet again next Wednesday and see what the MRI shows and go from there..
