Re: More about my back
Posted by tim in I Feel Sick on August 20, 2009

Just a quick entry to keep everyone in the know.

I picked up the lab report from my brain MRI today. Here's what it said:

Findings: There is no evidence of acute infarct, intracranial hemorrhage, mass-effect, midline shift, hydrocephalus or extra-axial collection. There is no diffusion restriction. There is no abnormal parenchymal or meningeal enhancement. The orbits are normal. The paranasal sinuses and mastoid air cells are well-aerated. Impression: Unremarkable brain MRI.

I'm still feeling the numbness in my legs, a bit of it in my hands and arms, the shaking in my arms and hands, and the back pain and tenderness, but the doctors have said it's not because of my back or anything in my head.

While this is good news, I'm still frustrated that nothing has come of it. I guess I need to talk with my doctor again and ask if it's nothing nervous-system-related, what the heck is it?

Ok. You sensed a disturbance in the force. The truth is that you are adopted from a pack of bunny rabbits and your stepmother is really a witch that has spent your past lifetime poisoning you, making you suffer an agonizingly slow death. Pfew, Glad we got that out of the air.

I would like to point out that the two previous comments follow a similar format in the author's name. Furthermore, they have both logged the same IP address registered to an internet provider in the Netherlands. Thus, they are both Sean(Tech).

Nothing wrong with your brain if you ask me. :-)

That wasn't my idea; it was the doctor's. The MRI images are at http://www.skudd.com/brain/ if you're interested.
