Soooo............. Matt has been complaining for years that his back hurts. Years. He has been to various doctors who just pat him on the head basically. Well recently (and god forbid he knew I was telling the whole world this) he has started having incontinence, which he has never ever had. He was potty trained at 2 1/2 and that was that, he never even had one accident. He is now 20, pretty sure there is a BIG problem. So I take him to have an MRI, and it shows narrowing of the spine on both upper and lower spine, as well as minor bulging. The PA and DR told him that the results of his MRI were insignificant, yet I went to medical records and got the report, and I see where it states the above. Spinal stenosis, which is narrowing of the spine can cause incontinence, yet the 2 doctors have stated it is nothing. I am SO confused! Is it possible that even though the MRI states this, that since I am not a DR I am interpreting it wrong? (Even though it says in black and white - narrowing of the spine and 6 minor bulging discs. )? Or is it that in podunk AZ everyone is out to lunch. Sigh. I feel badly for the kid - who can go out in public and have a normal life when dealing with this? It is very embarrassing for him - yet he was bold enough to tell me about it to get help - so he deserves to get the right answers. Ugh............any insight?
