"Scary Episodes" identified

I had posted earlier about unusual episodes I was having. I saw my Neuro yesterday and he says these are "Partial Seizures" but the cause is still not known (I am still undiagnosed).

He has ordered a Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) to get a better look at the lesions that showed up on my MRI and wants to admit me to the hospital for observation tomorrow morning. Has anyone else ever had to be admitted for observation or had an MRS? Any info would be helpful.

Hi -

No personal experience, but hope the findings are of no concern.

Where I live, the test is called a MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and you have to take off all metal before having the test because it really is magnetic.

Wishing you well - Barbara
