I was diagnosed with Myelopathy spastic paraparesis in 2010. MRI showed degenerative change from c6-c7 at C5 there was a broad based disc bulge with a superimposed central disc protrusion which results in moderate central canal narroeing. fast forward to 2013 solicitor asked Neuro for letter re condition for divorce purposes he seemed perplexed about this kept asking why solicitor wanted letter. He then proceeded to send me to Neuropsychiatrist who wouldn't have known the about auto immune diseases I have, lovely man gave me FND web address. Next appointment he said Mr ........ showed you the FND site I replied yes. He then said he'd discharge me when I asked would the back pain (which I have extreme for 5 yrs) he relied that my MRI didn't show anything wrong with my back and discharged my me. I was so confused I wrote to the benefits people and informed them that my consultant seemed to think that my problems are mainly from FND. One of the GPs seems to think I have both.
Got a copy of the Neuro Consultants discharge letter and he has said that I have functional leg weakness and non organic temor .
I am now up for a review of my benefits and terrified that the benefits people will think I have lied . Not to mention confused and depressed.
Do disc bulges cause pain and do the rectifie themselves over time ?
