Customer Question
I have been told...

I have been told I I have 3 ruptured disc in my neck and several bulging disc in my lower back and need surgery to correct. I then go to another doctor and he says i look like a normal 44 yr old female and mentions nothing about my ruptured disc in neck. Is there online doctors that will review my mri's ....i have them on a cd rather than me driving out of town to get a second opinion?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

This has been going on for well over 5 years. I have numbness and tingling that comes and goes sometimes last over 6 months

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have a cd of the images and then I guess all the reports r on therer...if you'll tell me what it is exactly that you're looking for I I can send it to you because I'm I'm sure you know when the whole CD because there's it's it's quite a few images on there but if you do just let me know. Also today I got a from a nap and my right arm has went numb again and it's not my hand has went numb....its not whole hand its more my thumb and my index finger and then I can't move my wrist up.... I can't really grasp things...i have limited movement and control....its just flops foward and can't go up with my wrist it wontallow me to raise my wrist. This has happened several times before and it's lasted anywhere from coupe of weeks to 6months at a time.

I can review your MRI scan

there should be a data folder....then numbered folders that contain images. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ahhx97tj09irj8h/AAABKxhT-pY0e17TZ_izwY2Aa?dl=0
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 1 month ago

yes, I was able to download the data and look at your brain and neck and lumbar spine MRI scans.

you don't have bulging disks

back surgery is always the last resort.

I don't see any ruptured disks in your spine.

If you found nothing I can't agree with that. i have had way too many issues with the pain being unbearable alot of the tmes for there not to be something. Several doctors have showed me issues with my cerviacal 4,5 and 6. My hand has gone numb again for about the 5th time and last for months which no one can tell me why. I was looking to get more answers but if you didnt even see what i already know then I guess I need to keep looking. This is not something new for me but have been dealing with it for about 20 years. Thx for your time but your findings do not coincide with my symptoms and what I deal with daily.
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 1 month ago

I don't see any ruptured disks

I would get copies of your prior MRI scan neck reports.

I would be happy to review them with you.

I also have fibromyalgia and neuropathy in my legs.... I;m sure that also plays a role of some kind. I'm not real sure what neuropathy all entails as it hasnt been explained to me for some reason but take gabapentin for it.
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 1 month ago

fibromyalgia can cause pain in your neck.

neuropathy means damage to nerves

have you worked on improving your diet, cutting out gluten, sugar, white flour, bread to see if this helps decrease inflammation in your body?
