I was worried about my memory and CT of brain w/o contrast noted mild bifrontal atrophy. Saw psychiatrist for depression and memory questions came up and he did testing and thinks I could have start of some kind of demtia and wants to do a brain mri. Now I am really depressed and saw question similar in this forum by someone who said this was normal as we age. Forum answer was to ask dr. of for her age it was normal and she had already listed her age. I am a 54 year old female. For neck pain I take several 150 mg fenterol and 7.5 vicodin for breakthru pain, baclofin. For depression I take Lexapro, .05 Lorizapan, Ambien for sleeping. Feel free to shortin all this as my question is mild bifrontal atrophy serious cause to worry about dementia or Alzheimers based on medicine I take and being 54 years old? Also what will a MRI show that a CT did not? Please answer as I am a nervous wreck about all of this and affraid to tell anyone.
