Reply To: Searching for answers – 10yr old son

I’m sorry… I didn’t realize I came off so pushy and obnoxious. I am very patient when I feel like they are truly trying to figure something out but both my son & I didn’t feel like the neurologist has any care whatsoever. I asked when we would learn the results of the MRI and he told me I would have to call in to get them and then follow up with our pediatrician on our own…We’ve never experienced that before. Also that our ped will probably receive the MRI results before he receives the neurologist’s report from that appt. We have a wonderful relationship with our pediatrician and I had no intention of being a distraction or dictating the medical process. I want to advocate for my son and the appt with the neurologist left us flat. On 3 occasions I have personally had to go back in for follow-up MRIs with contrast after non-contrasting MRIs didn’t show anything… I hope to minimize MRIs and save money if possible.

As for Naturopaths and Acupuncture, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. This is my first post to this forum and you are my first reply… your reply totally caught me off-guard and felt like a slap first thing this morning. I’m hopeful that wasn’t your intent. Naturopathic medicine has provided answers for my family that years of testing never did. Acupuncture was the only thing that gave me full function and feeling back in my right arm after 3 years of sitting on the sidelines and hours in PT, MRIs and specialists appointments. In no way am I trying to change your mind, I just ask that you be considerate of others in your replies & support. We all have different experiences that lead us to where we are… but we come to these forums for positive experiences. I mean no disrespect…
