Re: why do an mri of head,neck and brain

i think you just answered your own question there.your symptoms are the reason for the MRIs.he is looking for things that could possibly be the cause or trigger of your symptoms.falling "only"twice is kind of a big deal.it all depends on what caused you to fall.what exactly is a VNG?i have heard of it but don't know what this test actually consists of,could you enlighten me there?let me know just what you find out.Marcia
