I will be having a CT this coming week. However, to rule out MS, I would like to have the MRI. I have heard that the MRI is able to to get a better picture of the brain. Which one is more accurate? MRI or CT? I would really like to know. My grandmother had a sister who had the same symptoms as I did and ended up in a wheel chair in her 40's. With the symptoms becoming more and more prevalent and new ones appearing. I am afraid of this happening. I dont know what her diagnosis was. She was overseas. I would like to know what this is and treat it. I walk for a living. I am quite active and would like to enjoy my body for as long as possible. My left hip and knee dont have full range of motion, and my knees buckle. The muscle spasms and stiffness are coming more frequently and my sense of balance is worsening. Along with my absense for words. I noticed talking to a client yesterday, I was having trouble putting sentences together. Its just happening more often, and I am really getting scared. I need to find out what this is and either slow it down or stop it completely. I really think certain things need to be ruled out. I feel like a hypochoncriac asking for the MRI, but I really feel it needs to be done. I have already asked twice, but havent heard back about it. How can I get the doc to agree to it? My insurance resets the deductable in January, so I need to do it before then.
