~~MRI.....added more to this post

I have been so thankful for the prayers and concerns
of you my blog readers.
I did get my MRI results.
Without going into all the details, I have some stuff going on in my back, degenerative and bulging disks. She said my back is a real mess.
I have Tarlov cysts (link included)that are causing much pain, in the sacrum area .
Head MRI, abnormal no tumors,but affecting cognitive skills
I am headed off to a neurologist.
Can I share the JOY in all of this.
MY doctors appointment was the best I have ever had.
My doctor is a Christian.
She listened.
She understood.
There is a reason for my intense pain and loss of cognitive skills.
So, it could be worse. Many of you face much more than this,
it is just so nice to get answers.
She has also recommend a few things I should be taken to supplement my diet.
She gave me a hug before I left, how about that one?
I left her office almost in tears,
tears of joy and thankfulness to finally get some answers.
So right now I will go to the neurologist, a pain clinic and physical therapy.
Praising the Lord for answers.
keep a eye on my blog...a giveaway coming soon.....
that is UNLESS the Rapture happens...which would be
much better than ANYTHING I could EVER give away,amen !!

I hope you find something to help with your pain. It sounds like you have a positive attitude, and that's a step in the right direction. I wish you all the best.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

I know how important it is to finally get a correct diagnosis. I praise the LORD for putting you in good hands. I was tested for Tarlov cysts (have the symptoms but MRI showed I do not have them), so I read up on them at that time. So, I know that they are not easy to treat.

Still, isn't it wonderful to have a doctor who cares? And a Christian, too! I have some incurable diseases/disorders (4 that I know of!). Despite the lack of cures or even very good treatments, it was such a relief to finally have validation of my symptoms. I know that's what you're feeling now and I'm so happy for you!

gracy said...

hope that the Lord showers His indescribable blessings on you this week!

Deby, it's wonderful to have found joy in the midst of your pain. Having a compassionate doctor, one who listens, is so comforting, and having one who is a Christian, a special blessing. I pray you get some treatment options very soon.

I do pray they can do something to stop the pain.

Rejoicing with you!!!

I am glad at last that you have answers. Still sorry for the pain you are going through. But I know I would rather know what is wrong so I can attack it full force and live the best life I can. Prayers and hugs for you sweetie.

I am so thankful that we know and can talk to the Great Physician.

A good doctor is the BEST thing short of being healed! I am so thankful to have found one who really listens to me, also.

I hope that you are able to find solutions to the things that trouble your health.

So sorry you have had to go through the extra pain. Last thing you need! But I'm rejoicing you do have some answers. That alone can help sometimes!

Abounding Treasures said...

I am so glad for you that you finally have answers for why you're feeling the way you are!

How wonderful of the Lord to give you a kind-hearted Christian doctor who listened and understood and then to top it all off, gave you a hug of caring and understanding :o)

I truly pray that you will receive some relief at the Pain Clinic and help on the way as the Lord strengthens your inner man!


Jodi said...

((Deby)) ~ Oh, my friend, I do rejoice with you in finding a doctor that really hears you and is a Christian, too -- what a blessing! I am so glad that you are getting some answers to your problems. Not knowing what's wrong is beyond frustrating (my sister had a health issue that took years to diagnose). Praying that you can find some relief from the pain and other symptoms.

J-ME said...

Deby, I am so glad for you that the MRI showed reasons for the pain - that it isn't just the fibro. It's not good that you have things wrong, but I think you know what I mean - if you are going to have pain, it's easier to accept when you know the cause.
