Osteoarthritis



After going to all these Neuro docs, and them telling me that I am fine by my x-rays, I am having to change my PCP and I will be going to a Rheumatologist. My short term disability pay is about to end. I am waiting to hear from the insurance company on whether they will accept my disability or not. If they don't, I won't have a choice but to go back to work whether I can or not. I hate this ****.

I am sorry to hear of your pain. I suffer from post traumatic surgery which has caused permanent nerve damage. I have chiari malformation wich has ruined my life. I have had two brain operations among other minor procedures. I have seen 40 doctors in 8 years so I feel your frustration. My short term is about to expire and with waiting for reports from these doctors  is causing a delay on my appeal for SS benefits. I am 33 years old and feel like I am 60. My neurologists is wonderful although located in New Jersey sometimes it is worth the travel to find the right doctor. I have been to 4 states looking for the answer. Hang in there and make sure you get at least three neurologists opinions for your condition.  I have recently been trying acupuncture. It isn't working for me, but it doesn't mean it wouldn't work for other people. Ask your next doctor and see what they think. GOOD LUCK
