I usually post over in fibro forum - but as I know a lot of you would have had MRIs for lesions, I wondered if anyone had stumbled across the following -

I had my MRI results back today through a letter in the post...In UK we have NHS, which means ages for appointments and often ages for results...

As I have been getting a lot of neurological symptoms, like twitching, vision problems, sleep problems I was a bit worried it might be MS

The results say they have found a cyst on the pineal gland and its believed to be benign...No advice on how to manage this, what treatment, is it dangerous, follow ups etc blah blah blah

So in my frustration of lack of advice I did the dreaded google for this....and guess what, not a lot of info...some say it causes symptoms (very much like fibro) some say it doesnt cause any symptoms...some say its rare...

Pineal gland helps produce melatonin, which might explain some of my severe sleep problems...

Problem is, it could have always been there and i might not have known...and the fibro could run along side it...

Question - does anyone else have this? Anyone heard of this? Can this co exist with fibro? I need help....

The first thing I am going to do is make an appoitment with my doc and ask for another consultation referral to the neuro again so I can ask all these questions...that seems a sensible option
Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in March and now looking for friends to help me in my fibro journey :o)
