    Hi, im getting my mri results tommorow and i am also scared to see what they say. If your doctor said the inflamation is small then antiobiotics will most likely help with it but its good that your gonna see a neurologist. Im suprised your doctor didnt send you to a neurologist from the beggining. The neurologist will probably make sure its nothing serious and help with the medication and also probably do more test like the emg.

      Im pretty sure they would have seen if it was serious but just make sure to let them know the appointment is urgent and you need to know as soon as possible for the neurologist.

      The condition you looked at only is for when you get a blow to the head and it would have been swelled and showed up a lot in the mri. The symptoms you are having also are not the same with this condition.
