Saw my third neurologist yesterday (we thought I was seeing the neurosurgeon, but I'm glad there was a mix-up as she was so good with me). I spent almost an hour with her going through my issues, and I finally saw my MRI pictures - it's quite terrifying seeing a picture of your own brain. It turns out I have a Vascular Loop in my 7th nerve which needs to be dealt with. I am awaiting to hear back from her after she speaks to the head neurologist and the head surgeon because she cannot leave me with that in my head, or on the millions of tablets I am on.
I cannot express how relieved I am to finally see that something is happening. It sounds bizarre to say I'm glad they found something, but after a few years of twitching and unbelievable pain, it's a relief to know I'm not going crazy and there is something causing the pain. And now the neurologist can see why too, and she's getting the surgeon involved, my hope is that by the end of the year, the issue with this loop in my brain will be sorted out and I might be on the road to recovery.
Unfortunately, she did notice some spots on the MRI too which can indicate MS, but she wasn't 100% sure about that so she is going to follow that up with her colleagues, so for now we put that to the back of our minds.
