Hi Ben. Because I've been dropping things (a lot), my arms keep going numb to the elbow (which might be because my hands are always clenched in fists) and because I said my neck hurt.

Why do you ask? Is it uncommon for a rheumy to order an MRI for an AS patient with neck pain? Maybe she is even more proactive than I thought ...

By the way Ben, I didn't mean that rudely. Just in case that is how it came across I wanted to let you know I'm genuinely interested in your answer.

Thanks!

one thingee doctors often want to do with MRI's is look at deterioration of the principal areas of prior complaint- it's a way of evaluating disease progression...before/after photo's.
maybe i'm missed the nature or extent of your 'new complaints' which certainly might pique your physicians interest...

i've never had an MRI, i've had successive xrays of certain areas which showed how bad things got to in si and lumbar...mri's are a lot more expensive than xray and use more radiation, which is a concern btw. many, many doctors own their own mri machine's and because insurance will pay and profit is high, well they order mri's.

i just wondered if/ why perchance since you have significant existing lower back stuff he didn't look at it all at once.

oh but then he can order and bill for another.

i take a very significant and critical view of any med professional who can't get it- this is and episodic and progressive condition...i oversimplify but 'it's all good' and it's all really just the same stuff moved somewhere else.

sorry i took so long, been busy
