@Kenny Banya 's thread (above) contemplating neurologists as the most-ignorant medical specialty when it comes to ME was the incentive for this question. Like @TrixieStix , I will be having a brain MRI next year to determine if there is another explanation (MS was suggested) for my worsening neurological symptoms. Perhaps I will be fortunate in avoiding a similar horror story to those recounted in Kenny's thread about neurologists, since my MRI has been ordered by my supportive GP. I couldn't help myself from "Googling" MS symptoms. I checked "yes" to most of them -- no doubt a common experience for many of us. Just wondering . . . . How many PR members have had a brain MRI? Was it helpful (i.e. did it show any abnormalities)?
