Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

I know you can’t use a blood test to determine if you have ms. :lol: I totally understand that. I was asking a more specific question which was answered by a poster about minerals and vitamin testing. Of course my ms neurologist followed protocol and did a large amount of blood work. “Ruling out ms”...

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

What kind of panel should I request for bloodwork to do an in depth check of vitamins and minerals? I feel like a lot of docs think this is quackery and give you the cold shoulder. I had about every blood test to rule out MS on the protocol. My thyroid was done in September and glucose. Both normal....

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

Hi ElliotB. She’s an MS specialist in Boston. She’s confused but searching. They had tested me for ALS too which was scary as hell. Thankfully nothing. If MRI’s are uneventful, I’ll be passed on to a “neuromuscular specialist” neurologist. The basic neurologist I saw first brushed me off altogether ...

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

Hi snoopy. Thanks. Good advice. I take no meds, just Advil for pain and some zofran for nausea at times. But no biologics. I’m kind of anxious about doctors, procedures and meds. The less the better because I don’t want to pollute my body. It’s why I’m scared of contrast and what they don’t know abo...

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

Thanks. I really appreciate the feelings aspect of your experience. When I look back, my problems escalated after I had my last child. I think my body had enough! Out of nowhere I was getting speech altering, vision altering migraines and psoriasis. My oldest son is autistic and I’m raising him with...

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

I don’t take supplements, if that helps. I’m wondering who has more clout in reading and interpreting MRI’s in general, Radiologists or Neurologists. Is it a gray area? I guess I just have to wait for my next round of images.

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

Not the question I’m asking, but thanks for your input. I’m really dying to get my original question answered as I can’t find much about this in my research.

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

Yes. All were normal. I don’t have results w me today but I went over them w neuro and they’re all normal. I eat a mixed diet. I eat some meat, eggs, fish and tons of veggies, some healthy grains. I’m not overweight and I exercise regularly. I’m really curious to know if anyone has had conflicting r...

Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

Happy New Year. I had a major episode that I thought was migraine related on 9/6/18. Went to ER and had a stroke workup done, they did an MRI of my brain. I’m 43 and relatively healthy but for psoriasis,arthritis and hemiplegic migraines. I’ve had migraines before many times, my type can mimic a str...
