I need some opinions please.
I'm having tingling & numbness just below the scapulae on both sides. I have pain in the top of the neck, mid-thoracic, mid lumbar, & Sacral-Iliac joints. My knee doc said I need a full spine evaluation. Most of you know my past spine doc always says, "there's nothing we can do for you," even though xrays plainly show disc & facet issues.
Do I return to them and take a chance they might actually do something after 3 years?
Do I go back to an old Ortho doc I wasn't that confident with (wanted to fuse SI joints right at the start)? He's in with the knee doc and very close by.
Do I return to my original Ortho group, who fused the cervical spine in the 90's? Driving there will worsen my tremors and fibro pain.
Do I ask my PCP to refer me to a university spine hospital, which would require me to travel overnight, several trips a must (not an easy feat)?
Just trying to unscramble all this in my head, and with the fibro fog, I could use help with "thinking outside" the fog! Lol 😉
