Hi, could you please narrate your symptoms and why MRI is being done, what I understood is that you are having some autoimmune neurological issues and gets tremors.

MRI cervical spine or neck is done to rule out any pathology or lesions (nerve compression, any fluid filled cavity (syrinx), inflammation etc.

got results today from cervical mri .. its normal no pressure on spine, no hernations or disks problems.. both brain and cervical mri normal. still have some symtoms, but i  think theyre getting better, working with a chiroprator 5 days a week,  seems to help only on meds now to sleep, still feel a little bit in arms and legs, slightly and in back center, do you think that this will fade away over time ?, my doctors think it will due to good test results, exercising daily, walking  6 7 miles a day and doing light lifting, 8 months after  i became ill now, do i still have a chance atr 100 percent recovery? thanks

Hi, physiotherapy will be better alternative, although chiropractic treatment is fine but its role in treatment is still controversial. Visit website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiropractic for more information.

As you don’t have any abnormality in cervical spine as per MRI report, relax, probably it is muscular pain. Please carry on with physiotherapy.
