There are some good people in the medical field
Fast forward to last week, I had insurance again. Yay! Handed them the MRI report and disc. I have chronic tendonitis. He told me it was in the bicep tendon and the rotator cuff. He said I needed a cortisone injection. This will help isolate the pain.
The injection was today. The doctor looked at my chart. "You are autistic, so that means sensory issues. We will use two numbing agents." I never had that kind of consideration before. He warned me at each step. Very patient. He talked me through the procedure. I even saw a baby frog in the room (We are in Florida, they always find a way inside this time of year.). This gave me something to look at while he was positioning my shoulder.
When it was done, he even helped me up. Not all doctors are negative towards autistics and I fully appreciate him. Update in six weeks.
