Hi, I have not been diagnosed with MS but have many symptoms.
Im concerned about a head scan I had 3 months ago and not got results from!
My story in brief; In August I suffered my 2nd “trapped nerve” in neck which started off a whole host of symptoms, desensitisation in left forefingers, left foot and shin, constant buzzing in left foot and feeling like I’m being dragged to the left when I walk. Electric shock pains in left arm/hand and leg… not to mention bladder problems, fatigue and blurry vision.
My doctor sent me to A&E after I told him I wet myself and had lower back pain this was my first MRI scan showed up a bit of demyelination in upper Thoracic spine which led to me seeing a neurologist, she briefly went through visual and physical tests on me and arranged for a whole list of blood tests… it was the height of summer so all my symptom where coming at once!
Since that appointment I’ve had no contact with Nero but I can now identify my symptoms as worsening with heat, stress and when I’m pre-menstral
3 months ago I had a MRI with contrast on my thoracic spine and head, I’ve been patiently waiting for the report with no follow up appointment. I’ve had reports back for blood tests - all clear.
After waiting 11 weeks I phone the Nero secretary to ask about results - she said they went to my Doctors.
The doctors only have the report from the thoracic spine (no changes occurred) but she questioned if I even had the brain scan!!
I called the second time to the Neros secretary and she said it was here and been discussed in a meeting yesterday, this was over a week ago and I have all not heard anything, I’ve left several messages on her voicemail with no call back.
I’m worried they have lost my scan as I don’t understand why the spine has been reported but not the head, is this normal practice? Have they found something and need to look further but not telling me?
Im so frustrated and confused
