    I recently had a Brain MRI done. Doc is concerned and wants more tests. The only reasons she even had it done
    were CFS, Fibromyalgia, and occassional dizziness. I have
    had all these symptoms over 12 years and NO doctor has
    ever responded this way.

    ANY IDEAS?

    Please e-mail me at mtgy@juno.com

    Thank you.

    I had a brain MRI, spinal tap, & many other tests at first, many are done just to rule out other mimicking conditions. Don't worry too much yet. My neurologist did a ton of tests because she didn't believe in fibro. At the time, I resented her attitude, but she actually did me a favor by ruling out many other conditions like lyme, MS, parkinson's, etc., before shipping me off to the rheumatologist in frustration.

    Let us know what you find out....
