MRI results

Posted , 6 users are following.

Quick question, i have recently had an mri which according to my neurologist said there was no indication of any issue to be associated with my symptoms however would do a second scan to confirm. I have this morning had a letter of appointment to see the consultant again. Would this suggest that their is in fact some thing that has flagged up on my mri. I am thinking if there wasn't Andy issue my results would just be sent to my GP to let me no all is clear

    If you are in the UK are you seeing him privately or as an NHS patient ?

    There is no way of knowing why he wants to see you again.. My neurologist said that I needed to see a neurosurgeon. The neuro surgeon then said that there was nothing there for his knife and I should see a specialist neurologist. Two years later I am no better or farther forward.

      Hi Derek through the nhs. When he first seen me he was annoyed that I was sent to him self as he said there was nothing in my mri that would point me in his direction. So after a second mri I'm surprised to be going back to see him. I'm assuming if it was clear he wouldn't waste an appointment just to tell me that and it would be my GP. I am hoping he has found some thing to explain my thoracic symptoms

    Hi can I ask why you had the MRI ? Is it so with your fibromyalgia or something else and usually they want to see after you’ve had even if nothing is wrong just yelp let you know if it was urgent they would have rang you and asked you to come straight in so my feeling is your ok stay positive I’m sure it’s just a follow up sending you my love and hope you get the all ok ❤️❤️

      Are you in the UK?

      What caused the fracture? My wife was getting nowhere with MSK so she paid for an MRI scan It showed that all of her disks are degenerative/dehydrated and with other problems and that she has two fractured vertebrae that are caused by osteoporosis. Two years ago our GP had referred her for bone density tests and after many months she was told that you cannot have them if you are 80.  

      She is now told it is an 18 week for an appointment with an MSK consultant.

      derek76 Wow! 18 week wait! No wonder I have heard nothing from ours in West Dorset ( Wessex WSK Triage Team). Ten weeks of severe sciatic pain so far, managed to get to see the GP after 5 weeks. He diagnosed L4 bulging disc. Since then, after another visit to him for better pain killers and a referral to Wessex WSK I have heard nothing. He sent the email in front of me ( hopping from one foot to the other as I cannot sit down ) and marked it as urgent. In the end, due to pain , I had to go private so consultant, MRI ( showing L3/L4 bulging disc ) then consultant again all in 4 hours. Following week had an caudal epidural but 6 days later it has not worked. We are due to go on 3 generation family holiday of a lifetime to Lapland in 4 weeks and I don't know how, as I cannot sit down on the plane, as well as all the pain anyway.. 😦

      The whole system is a mess. My wife just got an appointment offer to see the consultant on December 6th. She was given the choice of seeing him at the MSK clinic or at the hospital which since MSK got the contract has not happened.

      He is actually the one we went to see privately last year who I then and again this year was told that he only consulted privately or at an MSK location over two hours away by bus. Her doctor had written to his NHS secretary some time ago and did not get a reply.

    Did you see Neuro again ? Hope they could finally pinpoint the cause of your pain. I know this is an exhausting rollercoater within the NHS.

      Hi Laura. Thanks goes the message.

      Yes I have recently seen my consultant. I have slight degeneration in my lumbar and my l5s1 touching a nerve route ever so slight but nothing to give me my symptoms.

      He now thinks I have fibromyalgia which i had never heard of. I am now awaiting a rheumatology appointment and yes it is a roller coaster haha
