New diagnosis

    • December 31, 2017 at 10:42 am

      Brought in by ambulance to a small city hospital in greater LA on Christmas night. I thought I injured my back possibly pinched nerves, disk b/c of paralysis. Kept explaining the paralysis but was written off as a chronic bad back w/no intervention by a neurosurgeon who never saw me in person. terrible response blaimed on Christmas & flu season. Finally did spinal & found elevated protein. I’m on my second day on immunoglobulin. Still can’t move from the torso down. Grateful I have my arms & doesn’t seem to be diminishing my breathing. I’m scared though. They were trying to transfer me but I think they are talking about not doing that now b/c the treatment is “standard.” I don’t trust them but I like being close to my family, not sure if I should do the IV here or keep pushing to go to a center of excellence?? I’m 43 this came out of nowhere,I take care of my very ill father & daughter while my husband works to support us 60-70 hours a week. Any help is appreciated, thank you!!
