A turn for the worse

This disease presents in so many unexpected ways. She has been feeling numbness and tingling in her right arm for several weeks now. She got a neck scan three weeks ago and it turned up nothing. Yesterday it got much worse and radiated up into her neck and turned to pain. I exchanged email with Kaplan last night and we are to have her scanned today in a broader area to see what is going on. Throughout the night it got much worse, and is up into her head, although connected she says to the arm. She is in a lot of pain and discomfort and hasn't slept much. I emailed him again a while ago and we may have to go to the hospital; am waiting to hear back from him. He thinks it is likely a tumor, but the question is what can we do about it.

This is the worst she has felt physically since this whole thing started.
