MRN in Houston

Postby rea » Tue Oct 09, 2012 5:18 pm

I finally have an appointment in Houston, thanks to GregT. They are planning to do an MRN (pray my insurance helps). Will I have to wait for Dr. Filler to do a report? I know something is going on with my piriformis muscle now and know from this forum that he tends to focus on that area. Dr. Filler also mentions that the nerve can be entrapped there. He also mentions entrapment in front of the coccyx. Just found out my coccyx is curved inward (acute). That's from sitting on hard surfaces all those years. When I thought I had vulvodynia, I sit in a patio chair with my knees drawn up to chest for hours (about 2 weeks), crying from the pain/burn. Know I did more damage to myself. I hate waiting to know what is wrong with me.....
Had appt. on the 15th Oct but they called back and had to reschedule me to the 29th. How I'm going to drive is beyond me..also I get lost on a one way street :D
Symptoms began 6/27/12. Diagnosed with Vulvodynia.Estrace and Lidocane with no relief.
Uretha enlarged Aug. 2012. MRI of Lumbar in Sept. 2012.Normal. Did MRI 3 Tesla of ischial spine to Sacro Spin- Normal. Houston-Nerve Block 10-31-12 & MRI (MRN) entrapment of perineal branch, more on right side. Dr. Hibner- block of perineal branches and sclerozation w/relief over 1 month. SIJD/Piriformis Syndrome Left Side. Gabapentin 2400 mg.

Rea,
I am not sure how the Filler MRNs work but it is good to see you have your sense of humor. Maybe there will not be any one way streets?. Good luck and have a safe trip. I hope they can sort it out for you and determine some good treatment.

2007-08 pelvic muscles spasms (per colon-rectal dr.) treated by ElectroGalvanicStimulis(EGS). 6/27/10 sat too long on a hard chair- spasms, EGS not work Botox help, spine pain dr cortisone shots in coccyx help, still pain, PT found PNE & sent me to Dr Marvel nerve blocks & MRN, TG left surgery 5/9/11. I have chronic bunion pain started/surgery at age 21. TG gave me back enough sitting to keep my job and join in some social activities. I wish the best to everyone!

I didn't see any on Google Map but there are plenty of 6 lanes. Which way do I go? Which way do I go? runs through my mind now.
