Spinal Cord Disorders Message Board

Lisa, you have never mentioned a primary care MD or osteopath in your notes, just your chiro. Do you even have a general doctor who knows you that you trust? If you do, even if you haven't been there in a while, perhaps they can pull some strings to get you into a neurosurgeon ASAP.

Xrays can't show damage to the nervous system. I think it's odd you spent all that time in the ER and nobody there would order an MRI or CT scan.

The unfortunate truth is most neurosurgeons take weeks to see the first time, and good ones are hard to get in to more than once per month. You will have a long wait with the diagnosis and treatment, but you need to get started. I don't know your age, but I bet even if you are young you could find other people who know folks that have gone through neurosurgery.

And I'll say this once more-don't let anybody mess with your neck until you know what is going on. Take care of yourself, and good luck!
