I have a herniated disc in my neck so we thought that was causing severe nerve pain, and, after an MRI later, we thought we had located the cause of
my pain down the left side of
my back. We scheduled a surgery to
take care of
that when the second heart attack hit between the MRI and the scheduled date for the surgery. This time we knew we had pin pointed the problem so we told the ER about the MRI and the scheduled surgery so they just medicated.
