Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 30 years of patient experience and I am here to help you today. I'm sorry you are experiencing long term back pain.

The Brain MRI and blood tests to evaluate for Multiple Sclerosis may be a good idea, but back pain is not a symptom of MS. What you need to determine the reason for your back pain is a MRI with and without contrast to determine if you have a spinal stenosis or herniated disc. Also, your Fibromyalgia can contribute to your back pain and fatigue. Please discuss getting your lower back evaluated with your doctor. Once this is "fixed" you will feel a lot better.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
