    Are you able to get a copy of the MRI written report? When you find out what is going on, please let us know. It is hard to wait for test results!

    Can i also ask I had a synovial cyst on the first MRI in 2016 but it seems to have disappeared from the MRI this year in June. I thought they don't disappear?

    Do you mean you saw it on the first MRI and now it was not visible? It could be that it just wasn't visualized by the MRI or perhaps, it was something that looked like a synovial cyst and it has now been reabsorbed by the body. Something like a hemangioma can and usually is reabsorbed by the body, for example.

    Also, if different people are reading the MRI, it can be that one person reports it while another does not. Sometimes something that appears significant at one point is not as significant at a later point. The radiologist writing the report usually never includes every little thing that is not normal. They point out the specifics of what the doctor who ordered the MRI is looking for, and then anything else that the writer deems to be significant and impactful.

    Well I have to have MRI of brain and cervical neck and thorax again in the next 2 weeks. The nerve roots impingement is on the report in the lumbar spine. I think they are they wondering if it's MS I'll know more after the MRI.

    What are your symptoms? Why are they repeating the cervical MRI?

    Sounds like it could be a compressed nerve in the cervical area. You should know something definitive soon!

    Thanks hun I doubt it but thank you, the only compressed nerve I have is in my back with the L5 nerve roots which is still there along with the bulging disc L5S1 on this latest MRI. The registrar said it could be an artifact on the MRI and he kept saying my lumbar problems are all on left side which I know. I'm just trying to stay positive but I think it may be MS will just have to see.
