MRI results
Anon_231625 posted:
Can anyone explain to me why do i have to see a head specialist about my mri results.. Then the following week i have to see my doctor about the same thing? Very confused and just wondering why do i have too see two doctors over the MRI results.. And no i dont know what the results are right now. I see the head specialist tomorrow..

Welcome Anon_231625!

You ask a really good question. When you see the head specialist tomorrow, perhaps you can ask him/her why follow-up with your regular doctor is needed. Then if you find out two appointments aren't needed, you can cancel the other.

Hope you get back good results. Please give us an update if you have a chance,

My counciler thinks its because They could have found something. And the specialist will tell me about it,Then i see my doctor for the treatement.. but yes i will ask my specialist today why is the other appointment needed. In away i hope the mri did find something cause i suffer from severe headaches on a daily basis,Forget stuff,Mood changes, neck pain and recently my eyes moved and i couldnt stop my eyes from shaking. Answers would be nice... I will update after i see the specialist today....

Thank you

Hello again Anon_231625. I was checking to see how the appointment with the expert went today. Hopefully he or she has some answers for your headaches and other symptoms.

Take care,

Anyways i still have the headaches and luckily my MRI didnt show i suffer from migranes or MS.. But my specialist is concerned where the lesions are and he did tell me that he never saw anything like this... So im a little bit nerved up..

Hi LiveLoveLaugh!

It sounds like you still have a lot of questions. Are you seeing your doctor again soon? If so, I'd suggest sitting down and writing out the questions you have before you go in and taking your questions on a notepad with you to your next appointment.

I know that when I am in the doctor's office I suddenly have a hard time remembering all the things I want to ask. It has really helped me to write them down ahead of time. I hope it will help you, too!

Keep us informed.

Take care,
