Changing your nutrition can only benefit you. Take this advice.
Thank you for the well wishes and the advice.

Up until about four months ago I used to eat very healthy and would take a lot of time in the kitchen preparing an organic pot of chicken and vegetable soup as well as eat a lot of salads with either fish or chicken

Unfortunately, all I have to do now is just look down for couple of seconds that allows nerves and bones start coming in to contact with each other and the pain is really excruciating

I received some pretty good advice from some paramedics tonight and I think I'm going to try to get into the VA Hospital in Gainesville to see if there's anything that can be done

Thanks again for your post

Let us pray! As a Viet Nam vet I had great care at VA especially at BAy Pines in St. Pete's. I agree with
above posters that a second opinion be considered.,but you first must get by the primary to a Rheumatologist IF you haven't been referred. Also pain management . Reschedule MRI. To avoid drug dependency. Inquire about high frequency therapy.

Maybe other parts, but not when it comes to the things of G-d. Peace

A little while ago I call 911 to ask what hospital they would take me to if I requested an ambulance. I told them I was going to try to stick it out and I would call them back later if I got worse but they sent the ambulance to the house anyway.

I declined to go to the hospital but the one thing that interested me that came from them was they recommended I get away from the Daytona VA that they said has a notoriously bad reputation and contact Gainesville VA hospital whom they said has a very good reputation.

I believe I'm going to do that and I am going to pursue my doctor to be held accountable for her incompetent dealings with me and her spiteful lies about me being a junkie and willing to lie to get drugs
Thanks and that's great that they gave you this advice. I highly encourage you to call them back if needed and when you get to the Gainsville VA request an MRI. I am certain they will recommend it. An MRI is exactly what you and the doctors need at this point so they can help you!

The MRI will help them be better able to find a definitive diagnosis.

Deal with the other doctor after you get the MRI and are on proper treatment. You need to focus on getting well now and keep your focus held there. You can deal with the incompetent doctor later. For now keep focused on healing.

Perhaps you should leave this post if all you want to do is try and insult me. Sure go ahead and think you have it all figured out...after all when you think you have it all figured out..that's where your learning stops. Like I said some think ignorance is bliss...that is certainly not me.

Excellent advice.

I wish you well, Livelystone. And an end to the run-around.
