The pain behind the eyes might be optic neuritis...you don't need an MRI to determine that. A neuro can look (with a small special microscope sort of tool) into your eyes and see whether the optic nerve is inflammed, or swollen, or paler than the nerve on the other side, all signs of optic neuritis. I don't think that necessarily shows up on an MRI.

Usually test results take a week or so to get from where you're having it done, back to the doctor. You should wait for a week, and if your doctor hasn't called you, then call her to ask about it. Don't assume that..if you don't hear anything, all is well. You need to keep on top of it!

Hey Twiggy

Uppity has answered u'r questions quite well and i agree totally with her about not assuming all is well if u don't hear back from the mri results. To add, if u can, get copies of the mri films (and cd if they offer that) for u'r personal copies. They can be so useful in future comparrisons or if u should need to seek a second opinion for some reason later on. I hope u'r mri is revealing and gives u some clear answers. I know it's scary to think u may learn u DO have lesions, but it's much better to know than to wonder. Please come back and let us know what u hear and how u are.

Anyone who has had an MRI is deafness in the ears normal afterwards and if so how long does it last. Right now it;s more in the left ear sometimes in the right anyway just was wondering. Twiggy2

No, it's not normal. You should be talking with your doctor. Maybe it's not related to the MRI, and you have some infection in your sinuses, affecting your ear, or in the ear itself.
