Hi all, Ive just made an appt with my gp to get my results from an MRI of the brain. I did ask the receptionist what it says and she said its satisfactory but need to speak to the doctor. What does this mean, has anyone else had a satisfactory result and had more tests? I’ve read that you should also have an MRI of the spine. Is this something you should always have if MS is suspected? Thanks
How long is your wait for your appointment? Hopefully not too long. Afraid that’s the only way to an answer. Write down your questions in the meantime.
You have my sympathy. The word satisfactory is hardly reassuring! But I expect it’s probably a case of bad word choice rather than anything sinister. If they’d seen anything suggestive of MS I can’t imagine/hope they wouldn’t report like that.
I think if they’re happy with the MRI they normally leave things there. So you may need to be prepared to push for more tests if you want them.
Thank you for responding. My appt was over the phone. As it was a different gp to the one I originally saw he asked about my symptoms and said he is referring me to a neurologist. So hopefully they will do some more tests.
