Diagnostic testing question

Postby mcames12 » Wed Jun 04, 2014 4:38 pm

Is it typical for a neuro to repeat a cervical spine MRI but not the brain? What would be the advantage to doing that?

Some background -- I had negative brain and cervical spine MRI's on 3T last year, but symptoms of numbness/tingling/burning persist, particularly on left side. Also have weird throat numbness/tongue tingling at times and have had gluey eyes at times.

The cervical spine MRI showed a herniated disc at the C3 -- otherwise normal.

I"m planning to try to get him on the phone tomorrow, but would love to hear from some of you, too.

Thanks!

hi :) from my non-pro perspective it seems like the doc might want another look at the c3 herniation.

fyi here are some links from my fave site for spine info
