Guest Julia59 Posted January 24, 2005 Report Share Posted January 24, 2005 Hello everyone---I hope tonight finds you all feeling well.I just wanted to let you all know my PCP found a neurologist who may be willing to work with Dr. Bolognese in New York.My situation has been getting worse and the instability is getting out of control with my upper cervical spine and cranial area. My cognitive function, leg weakness, pain, balance and POTS symptoms keep taking a downward spiral.I just can't keep track of what is causing what any more, so hopefully this neurologist can help me figure this all out---and relay information to Dr. Bolognese in New York. I'm afraid to cough, laugh, bend over, sneeze and GOD forbid if I had to throw up. I feel like there is a piece of sheet metal between my cranial and cervical spine area. The thoracic-cervical vest is actually making things worse. The only way it doesn't make things worse is to sit very still in a straight chair for the three hours I am to wear this.If I move about at all with it on, my lower back starts to bother me. I found out that I also have herniated disks, impingement on thecal sac and nerves on two levels---L2-3 and L5-S1. I just feel like my whole spine is falling apart. Now I have problems on the cervical-thoracic---and lumbar area's! Not to mention the cranium area. Sorry for whining---I just feel a bit under the weather tonight.You all hang in there in this nasty weather we are having. How are you doing in New Jersey Nina----how many inches did you get? WE got twelve in Toledo--on top of the 2 we had on the ground. I guess not bad compared to others.Julie :0) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
