I am a neuor patient with 19 MRIs and my neuorologist wants me to continue with yearly MRIs. I am frustrated as one may wonder. What does it take to get an answer of what is wrong with me. My story with MRI diagnostics begins in the military. I was running when suddenly I spun around and fell to the ground. The run was routine. The regular 3 mile runs for fitness.
Then, there was the complete numbness and paralysis of my right arm and hand. Then I had another spinning sensation in my military quarters. So, it was recommended I go to have an MRI done. That was 2004. The results were not good so I was sent to Walter Reeds Hospital's Neuology Clinic.
There the specialist narrowed my condition down to two things. One it was a demyelinating disease or two migrainous. The Audiology specialist confirmed nystamus. And, stated condition was a neurology nature.
Then, I was honorably discharged and sent home. I was instructed to followup with the VA hospital's Neurology Clinic. That was 2005. Now, it is 2012 and I am still having MRIs.
The results are the same enhancement and then not enhancing. Then lesions are enhancing again. T/2 flares, and inflammation.
Help me understand what is going on in the minds of my neurologists.
