Sorry it's long but I would appreciate some advice or input or anything really.
I have suffered with migraines for as long as i can remember. My first memory is a head CT. I was recently also diagnosed with fibro and am waiting on my first apointment with a specialist and pain clinic after finally finding a doctor that took me seriously. This situation is about my neurologist.
So I had an MRI Wednesday morning at 8 am, the turn around time for the results is 24 hours. I got a call at noon the same day. I was taking a nap so I missed the call. I called back and the nurse called me again Thursday. She told me "There is a CHANGE in your brain, POSSIBLY caused by migraine but NOT SURE." Um, what! She had no answers to any of my questions. Where is it, what does it effect, how big, will it get bigger, is it permanent, will it go away?
No answers. Just, "I will talk to to the doctor and call you back." 6 hours later got a call saying "I talked to the doctor and it SEEMS it is a result of migraine not a cause." I thought, What is that supposed to mean? Ok so are they causing damage? Whats going on? "Ummm, I'll call you back." Doctor calls, "It's hard to explain over the phone so I will show you at your next appointment, (end of October) but I THINK it is just what a migraine looks like active in the brain."
1st of all can nobody be sure of anything? And 2nd there is something like 8% that can actually be seen this way and I was not having a migraine. What am I supposed to think?
(The capitalization is just my way of punctuating their uncertainty whenever I spoke to them)
