Can anyone help me, my recent MRI report noted the above, and I was diagnosed with M.E. in late 2012. The Dr who arranged the MRI knew nothing about M.E. nor did the hospital staff that conducted and reported on the MRI scan even though I provided them all with relevant information regarding M.E. and MRI's. Does this finding support my diagnosis of M.E. and how? Sorry, the 'long-term' relates to 'past smoker'.
