I called the neurologist yesterday and they set me up for a repeat c-spine and brain mri today. Luckily, I knew the tech. doing it and he went over the scans with me.  Looks like no lesions in the brain and possibly same three in c-spine. Maybe one lesion is in a slightly different position. The nurse said it was good that I called because they need to know of any and all changes that are different than before.
I don't know exactly what this new information will do. I wonder still if this is due to low b-12 levels which I have been getting injections for since late June. I really see after researching all this how hard it is to get a diagnoses of whatever it may be:) Symptoms are webbed with so many possibilities. I guess now all that can be done is the waiting game.
Good luck to everyone in limbo and the already dx'd. All of you make this process alot easier to deal with and understand. cool

Depending on the skill of the tech, there may be lesions there that he missed, or areas that the doctor gets concerned about that the tech didn't note...so you realy need to wait for the doctor's interpretation

(unless the tech was a licensed radiologist, he really shouldn't have gone over those with you, even if you are his friend! )

When will you get to see your doctor again?

You're absolutely right.....we were in x-ray school together. So it was interesting to see cause I didn't get to do many MRI's. Not at all taking that as a radiologist reading and he wouldn't even suggest it. It was neat getting to see my mri's though. Definitely waiting for the radiologist to read it, they are the experts:) 

I really don't have an appointment with the doctor, I'm guessing they will call me with the results and go from there.
