MRI tomorrow
« on: March 09, 2022, 02:12:43 am »
My neurologist ordered a brain MRI, which insurance approved, and my appointment is tomorrow. She ordered the results of two previous brain MRIís I had in 2007 and 2009, before I was prescribed all of these psych meds and when my migraines went from episodic to chronic. She wants to compare them to the new one to see if Iíve had any changes in gray matter. This can occur from migraines but also from pharmaceuticals. Iím scared to see the results but also curious if we are prone to permanent brain damage. Who knows, it might turn out that my brain is healthier than it feels. Anyway, if anyone is interested in the results Iíll post the findings here as soon as I get them. Since my benzo withdrawal case is complicated by a neurological condition Iím not sure that I will get the answers I seek but at least Iíll know if I should continue to hope for a return to the former me.

Did the neurologist do an ANA blood test to screen for auto antibody disorders?

Pretty sure my last neurologist did. Heís the one that loaded me up on all the meds. Definitely something I could look into though.
