Is this a new DR. for you? Is he a Neurologist? To get the O2, have him make out a prescription for you, and look in your area for a medical supply place that will deliver. Have the doc specify a non-rebreather mask. Then you can get it done without him. I get my tanks delivered once a week. My problem right now is that I don't have a non-rebreather mask, but from the comments on this board, I need one! For what it's worth, 23 years or so and about a half dozen doctors and still no combo that works to keep these things away for good. It wasn't until I started reading this board about a month ago that I learned that there are chronic sufferers. I am at a total loss for words for what life must be like, or what comfort I could give them. I for one could not survive.
