    Hi guys

    Just wondering if anyone has had any MRIs, PETs, lumbar punctures etc done to determine the extent of the neurological damage? I have heaps of neurological symptoms (caused by neurotoxicity) but I have trouble finding a neurologist who is sympathetic to M.E patients. Has anyone had anything checked?

    I had an MRI when the symptoms started to get severe, but I wonder what a repeat one would look like now? The docs would just think Im crazy for asking to get it done, but Im seriously considering it. Ive heard PET scans are the most accurate for M.E patients and show the areas of the brain most affected. Any suggestions/experiences?

    Best wishes to you all,
    Ivana
