I had an MRI in March but am having worse muscles spasms lately. Will see my Dr next week and talk more but was wondering if anyone here has an opinion of when you should repeat MRI. Not even sure my insurance will agree to another in the same year. Thanks. I've been getting a lot of good info here and love the caring attitude from you all.View Thread
