... Well to be fair the dr who told me that at the pain clinic wasn't actually charging me personally anything as it was all coveredby government subsidies, neurologist on the other hand not so much.

... Hey everyone! I found this board while doing some recent searching during what seems to be some progression of my cervical arthritis.
