o.k. so I go to my P.m. and he sends me for yet another MRI at this time I'm hurting so bad, I'm walking with a cane and in tears in his office. He looks at my last MRI from over a year ago and says I feel like we have missed something. Lucky for me the have had a cancellation and can get me in later that afternoon. I take my son who is 13 with me. The MRI is so strong I can feel it in my teeth. Maybe this is good thing I think. I left my cane in the care and I'm very claustophopic and I pray the whole time. Kinda of like the little engine that could and Peter Pan rolled into one. I'm trying to think happy thoughts. Floating in the Bahamas with my husband on our first anniversary. i make it thru the 45 minutes without crying or throwing up. Yeah me. It's OVER! Guess what! I can't get off the table. They send in the most petite women I've ever seen with the tinest wrist and she says Please don't grab my wrist I have very weak wrist. Great I think. Now I start to cry. Finally I get off the table. Thank the lord!! But guess what!! I can't walk down the hallway to my son. SO here I am basically crawling down hallway to my son who runs to car to get my cane and says MOM WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOU!!!! Needless to say I barely made it to the car and drove my self home and my husband want to know if I wanted to go to dinner and a movie I said no I'll pass. I found out I have several bulding discs in my neck that are pinching nerves. Bulding and herniated and a ruptured from L2-S1 with pinched nerves. Has anyone ever had this happen and how did they fix it. My pain scale is a 9 and my husband couldn't figure out why I didn't want to go camping in a tent and sleep on the ground for our anniversary. Men!

Good morning!So I own a replica of the 1899 Merck Manual (of Diagnosis and so forth).I know how we get frustrated with modern medicine.So, from 1899, courtesy Merck...Note: The modern Merck Manual is well over 1000 pages. The original 1899? About the size of two iphones stacked atop each other. Maybe.***For the classic "dyspepsia", or "indigestion", which back then covered acid reflux and...
