Hi Jake,

Yes there seems to be enough reason for you to request a repeat MRI. Things can change it a short period of time. You're correct that these discs can heal in several months but sometimes they don't, or you can re-injure them. In some instances there can even be another disc that develops structural problems, often one that is adjutant to the primary diseased one. Stenosis may also be a possibility.

If you feel that your pain is not adequately controlled than please have a heart to heart with your PMP. Tell him/her how you feel. Your PMP may not know how you feel and how severe your pain has become. If he/she refuses to acknowledge your increased discomfort it may be time to seek out another PMP that will listen to you.

Please feel free to share with us the results of your next appointment. You deserve to be heard. Good luck to you.

Take Care,
Tuck
