I am having another MRI soon which will be my second. I’m not worried about the process but am concerned about what the result may be as, and I appreciate it is hard for me, I’m afraid my consultant belittles me at every opportunity and I fear he may say the result is clear even if it isn’t. I don’t come to this conclusion easily but I have seen him 4 times now and each time he conjures a ‘diagnosis’ out of thin air - anything from migraine to lack of confidence.
He has now accepted it isn’t migraine but he is certain it is a confidence issue with my balance. however, I have never lost confidence and done the same as I have always done yet I continue to deteriorate rapidly. He mocked me for recording the number of times I stumble as though I am obsessing about it yet I am doing it to have to prove to him I am getting worse not better, Even if it was a confidence issue it doesn’t explain other symptoms such as double vision etc.
How can I get a copy of my MRI report independently of my consultant - is there a charge for this service? I don’t enjoy being sneaky but I do feel I am entitled to an accurate account of my results. I think I will have to get a second opinion as I have to fight to get any test done,
