Is this a Neuro muscular disease and i haven't had my mri results in two months ?

For a full year i have been having a feeling of tensed muscles in my right ear followed by tremors and fluttering from the outside since taking the drug (roaccutane) which is a form of Isotretinoin used to treat acne i must also add that this drug is a chemothearpy drug and has nasty side effects which i am now paying the price for severly. I had an mri at the start of december and haven't heard back in two months is this good or bad news because i cant keep living every day with a tensed ear it's got me at death point and i really need help because i don't know what is wrong with me but my ear muscles are severely tensed because of thus drug roaccutane what should i do i have been to an ent who didn't have a clue and a young neurologist who didn't have any idea and didn't even know roaccutane had side effects i am at braking point what should i do i'm only 19 aswell this is no way to live my life

Hey there,

You should have your MRI results by now. You need to call the person who ordered it and schedule a follow up for your MRI results. It sounds as if nobody called to set up an appointment which is not ok. I would definitely call who ordered it or the facility who did the test ASAP tomorrow. I'm sorry to hear you are going through this. Side effects are terrible things. I hope you get answers soon.

I would also make sure to get a copy of your MRI result as well. A muscle relaxant RX may help with the muscle tension until you can get the cause figured out. It may be that the nerve in your face is inflamed, so an antiinflammatory OTC med may help. Also for nightime, if it disturbs your sleep, Neurontin, an RX, may help quiet the nerve, and can be taken about 3 hrs before bedtime, as it takes a long time to kick in. I would ask your Dr about these unless the MRI shows a specific problem related to this. You may have trigeminal neuralgia, but with a slight variation of the usual pain.

is there any other drug you can take besides that one? if that drug is causing the ear pressure then i would stop using it. however i have NO clue what it's for... so i am probably not the one to listen to. i don't know your history or what is actually going on.

i am just here seeking answers myself.

I assume you are off the roaccutane and have been for several months, as it is usually prescribed for four months only. Did you call the Dr who ordered the MRI for the results? You must do that. If they haven't called you in 2 months, they aren't going to. You need to know what it showed, and get a copy in case you have to see another Dr.
