Hi, I have appointment to see a neurologist soon and I'm really scared. I'm going because I have back problem which is Scoliosis and I've been having so much back recently. I know they will give me muscle relaxers for my back because that's what I'm going to ask for and I'm wondering since it's my first visit with the doctor do they help with giving something with the pain that day or they make you do any certain tests? It's been days I've been scared and crying from pain and I'm wondering do they give something for pain on the first visit? Please let me know more about this soon.

Thanks for your reply. With all this pain I'm having it's all mostly in my muscles and with such back problem I have since the spine is curved it's causing me to have such pain like this even in my breasts. I wasn't like this before at all. I want to know do you think the neurologist will also help with muscular pain in and around the breasts or this is something I should mention to my oncologist? My oncologist told me about muscle relaxers for my back and I'm wondering if there is anything like this also for the breasts? I don't know if this is something to mention to the neurologist or my oncologist. Please let me know.

Hi Melissa,

Thanks for your question, sorry that you are going through so much pain. Since this is your first visit, I am sure the physician will be able to relieve your pain although, I don't think we can explicitly give you an answer since you haven't seen your physician yet but pain management is something your physician will certainly help you with. I hope this helps. Keep us posted.
