L4-5, L5-S1, according to a two year old MRI. I've been feeling kind of put off by the doc. He has only spent 3-4 minutes with me, and in the meantime I'm suffering... I demanded another appointment, since my MRI and follow up are almost a month away, but my question is this... how do you get a doctor to REALLY listen and acknowledge that you're suffering, just existing, no longer living, and need some help? I'm suffering spasms, can't get out of bed in the morning for at least twenty to thirty minutes, and basically, I'm ruled by the pain. He pretty much threw me a script for tizanidine, once daily for two weeks, and now I'm feeling like, just unimportant and I can't suffer another minute!! It's affecting me badly mentally. How do I get him to see this tomorrow?
