Welcome to the board. I"m so sorry for the reason u'r here, but glad u'r reaching out for answers and working with u'r doc to get things checked. As Uppity said, continue to do that. It's quite important to eliminate all possible causes before deciding on any one probability. Also, i agree with Uppity in that u'r smart not to try to self diagnose. That's a very scary thing to do. After all, u can look at many possible conditions/diseases and find u'r symptoms there. Many things mimic many illnesses...so keep u'r mind open and clear to just test...review the results with the doc and keep moving forward. Something u may want to do as u'r going thru this is to keep track of u'r symptoms...when they occur, what they are and how they feel, and how long they last. This can be such an insight to u'r condition for u'r doc. Also, as u'r having these tests run, get copies of the results/reports. Many times u can simply ask the facility doing the testing to also provide u with a copy, but if not u'r doc's office can and should provide u with copies. U can actually get films of u'r MRI's and/or the cd containing the images as well as the radiologists report. The reason for having these copies is that if u ever need to see a diff doc for any reason u can provide him/her copies of all this to either give him insight to u'r past condition or to possibly save repeating tests.
