At last I am having a full spinal MRI – my neck and thoracic pain in particular have gone worse over the last twelve months and we have tried lots of new treatments but none of the pain relief lasts long enough.
I had my last lot of injections in December but was struggling so much at that stage that my pain consultant told me to contact him if the injections didn’t work for long. Unfortunately I seemed to have got lost in the system, but eventually managed to get a telephone appointment with him.
I was then told to go to the Spinal Unit to see someone a couple of days later and it was decided that it was time I had a full spinal MRI. It will be a few weeks before we get the results but I really do feel that this is the right move.
