I have suffered and suffered for about the last 8 yrs with muscle spasms, pain, numbness and weekness.
3 yrs ago I had ACDF, C-5,C-6 done and have never recovered.
I went to a new neurologist and he ordered a brain MRI with and without contrast. There seems to be something showing up around my brain stem that caused the neuro concern and he asked to speak with the radiologist that read my scan.
Now I'm freaking.....he said he would let me know if there is need for concern stating that it could be MS or mini strokes. I'm 48 yrs old.
Does anyone have any info or experience with this that would help me out?
I'm somewhat upset...and wonder how I'm not going to worry about a phone call from the doctor. Any thing else that may be causing a shadow there?
