MRA Results…

Holy crap on a cracker, if this isn’t a time to let loose the tears… aww never mind, hate the stuffy nose, blood-shot eyes and head pain…

The MRA was negative for blood clots, fistulas…. everything… for that one section of my brain… It was negative…

So what does that mean next… 

Well I am having neurological deficits and it needs to be addressed… 

We could be looking at anything from dementia, to Parkinson’s, to multiple sclerosis…. I don’t have an answer for that question…

I am just relieved, no clot, no fistula and no fear of bleeding out… and it only took from 1967 to now to get answers…

Whats next… Well I am sure there will be some neurological tests done to determine why I am having problems…

It may be nothing more, than what I have lived with since the Texas incident and my 2 abnormal brain waves, may be normal for me…

Until I see the neurologist in February, I won’t have any answers… doubt any other tests will be ordered before I see him…

Mike and I are acutely aware I am having neurological problems… much like you would expect with dementia… but I just don’t know…

All I can do now is wait… the doctor did her job, she got the test done… it doesn’t explain my blood pressure climbing and it only does that when I have pain in my head… so is there a connection, don’t know… 

Findings:  There is the nomal appearance of the vertebral and basilar arteries, carotid arteries, and its branches at the Circle of Willis… The visualized intracranial arteries are normal in appearance without any evidence of aneurysmal dilation or occlusion… The intracranial carotid arteries have symmetrical flow and are unremarkable…

IMPRESSION:  No abnormality identified….

Yipee!!!! Until more test are done, I won’t know what is causing the neurological deficit… but at least we know it isn’t anything that is going to snuff out my light any time soon…

And I will never take that sedative for a MRI again… that crap made me super bitchy… I really hate drugs…
