    Hi all:
    I just went to go over my labs with my doctor. It seemed OK and now he said he wants an MRI of my brain.
    I asked him why and he said he just wanted a 'look-see'.

    He will rule out MS this way probably as it is one thing that will not show on blood tests. Either that or he has shares in the radiology lab(LOL)

    I think most of us have had to have MRI's as a matter of course in this illness.

    Don't worry, just tell him you don't want to wait for the results,want them the same or next day.

    PLUS good advice there from Wake. I asked the tech when they cleaned those machines and she said come to think of it never really, and you are inches from where someone with a vuirus was trapped in there and breathing all over the plastic. I swear I got my vertigo virus from the MRI machine.

    Love Anne C

    Yep, it's good to see what's what. I have some of those white matter lesions too. The MRI is very loud, but they give you ear plugs. Just relax, it's only a few minutes of your life and could answer lots of questions.
