MRI Question
May 18, 2018
... My appointment with my neurologist is not until June 19th. I got a copy of the MRI and I will be the first to say. That really could be somebody's elses' brain, but it has my name on it, so I guess it's mine. :) It really looks like a trainwreck in there so I know it is mine. 2013 was not a good year for me. January I had what was called "Brain-stem" strokes and in Sept.... (3 replies)
MRI Question

... Try not to panic! I have new lesions every time I have an MRI, which is yearly...I have over 200 lesions now and I am still independent and working. The number of lesions you have means absolutely nothing- its all about the placement of those lesions.

... Hi, All: As some of you know, I was diagnosed on May 13, 2013 following a bout of ON. The ON resolved with vision in the affected eye returning to 20/25. Thinking back, my first clinical presentation was likely a year earlier when I had a buzzing/numbing sensation in both feet. This resolved fully after a few weeks. An MRI of the brain, neck and spinal cord revealed... (5 replies)

... Dear Laura, I intended to mention in my original post (but forgot) that US B12 lab values are not reliable (nor are many other US lab values, such as thyroid levels).
