I went to have my MRI on the 10th June & have just got the results, the MRI was suppose to be done with/without contrast, but for some reason the contrast was not done.
Here is what the Neuro said in a letter to my GP.
This women's MRI scan of the brain & spine was performed on 10 June but has only just been reported. The MRI scan showed areas of high signal intensity in the white matter of both cerebral hemispheres, unchanged since previous MRI of the head in October 2008. Although the nature of these lesions is uncertain, from their position and lack of evolution, I think it more likely that they are ischaemic than inflammatory, she has a obvious risk factor for small vessel cerebrovascular disease in smoking and obviously any other risk factors such a hypertension, diabetes ect. I think it is unlikely that she has Multiple Scleosis.
The MRI scan of the spine shows some degenerative changes of at C5/6 and C6/7 and a disc bulge at C5/6. The disc bulge is impringing on the cord, but not actually compressing it and there is no evidence of signal change within the cord itself. I think this lesion could expalin the presence of Lhhermitte's Phenomenon when she flexes her neck and it doesn't look as if surgery would be indicated. She will be reviewed on 13th September.
I really do not know what to do, I am worried that I will be brushed off.
My doctor is sending me for a hearing test as my hearing is being effected, not sure if it is the Tinnitus causing this.
My right leg is getting worse, having so much cramping & numbness along with vibration. My right heel is really hurting now, doctor adviced me to do some exercises as soon as I get up.
My muscle spasms inside the private area & inside no2 area, has become so painful when it spasms, last time I screamed.
I could see maybe my neck could cause my right arm to keep going numb & with me dropping things but not my right leg & muscle spasms, along private area & along back, rib across front, complete tiredness.
What do of you make of this??????? Can anyone advice me on what you would do nx. Should I just accept this. I just want answers.
