I just got my appt. for my MRI next tuesday the 15th Gosh thats seems like a forever wait but o'well what do you do when u live in a small town... Does anyone know why my doc ordered an mri when i just had one in nov of 2007 its has only been 4 months and dont understand what she is looking for as i have been haveing some terrible pain for about 13 days that comes and goes in left side of my face... At first ithought it was an eye infection or something with my eye even though there was no signs of reddnes or itching really so went to doc and she basically said it was some sort of virus and named it conjunctivitis which is pink eye, which I DONT HAVE i kept telling her then why is my cheekbone severly hurt underneath my eye and why do i get these terrible spasms and feeling like my face is being electrically shocked and it goes into my temple and sometimes it goes down into my left upper gums and molars. This is just wierd i could not even touch my cheek bone when im like that at first it was like someone burned my face or rubbed sand paper across my cheekbone into my temple?? I know i prob. sound CRAZY but then the other day i had no probs it had complety stopped then when i layed down to sleep it came back and its different all the time i get these spasms and electric shock feelings that will come and go for hours and it hurts my face sometimes it goes into the left side of my nose. So anyhow im suppose to be taking LEXAPRO for my depression/anxiety but am afraid to start it now I have to go the physc. next week and should have already started but im scared with all this other crap going on Should i just take it????? What do you think my doc is looking for on MRI being that just had one 4 mo ago. I did not have anyerism or tumor then is she looking for that . Do most of you get the eye pain and feeling of sore and pressure along with cheek bone and temple spasms and pain of electric shock feeling that come and go ?? K thanks any help would be appreciated as im very worried >>> Sorry for the BOOK

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
