Re: How common are brain anuresyms
ABC,have you had anymore testing done since the beginning of this thread?a CT can show many things but it cannot get down to the actual arterial level of seeing the blood vessels.a negative CT really dosen't mean a whiole lot when it cannot actually visualize many very real structres within the brain.you DO need that MRA and if you have not actually had one yet,an MRI with contrast.this is what should be done first actually.see what if anything shows on that MRI,then move onto the MRA,or these can also be done at the very same time too.thats up to your doc to order.but telling you everything is actually fine when they haven't really thoroughly checked the brain at every level is really just bad diagnostic work,really.you do deserve some answers here.ifyour doc refuses to help you with this,well its time to move onto a good caring doc who will.they ARE out there,you just have to find the right one.but something needs to change here or you will continue to have to suffer and with no answers.thats very very unfair to do to you.for your types of symptoms,a CT is just woefully inadequate.good luck hon and please keep us posted on how you are doing.i really DO feel for ya.Marcia
