That sounds s who I am seeing and he stated he could only handle one thing at a time due to insurance so he ask what was my worst and I told him my lower back and down my legs so he did a nerve conducive study and will following this wed with nerve block. Does this sound correct? I stated my regular Doctor said I have fibermyalgia too and he said when he is finished he can make his own diagnoses he is 73 but looks young and seems very knowledgeable but today I am unsure how to know the right thing is being done his credentials are good online except he doesn’t have the best bedside manner.

Sometimes I think if I go to ER and they admit me there would then be enough doctors to diagnose instead of being unique unless when things happen to your brain and nerves it just takes time to come back and heal it has been a year

it sounds like you are seeing a nerve doctor or neurology doctor

nerve conduction study and nerve block are not used to treat fibromyalgia

medications like lyrica and cymbalta are used to treat fibromyalgia

you should get an MRI scan of your back before you get a nerve block procedure

Thanks I do have an MRI they are using from 2016? It sounds like I am on the correct track and need to be patient and make sure the doctors have most updated information. I he said he will scan as doing the procedure and has 44 years experience his mind and body seem very young for a 73 year old

I would get a new MRI scan. that old one is 2 years old.

yes, it does sound like you are on the right track.

it sounds like you should trust this doctor

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
