I've heard this before several times, but wonder if it's true? from my own experiences, I suspect it is. i had MRI scan after getting worse, and testosterone levels fell to zero. Showed, according to the consultant, extremely large amout of lesions on the brain that were typical of ME patients (according to him) and slight malformation of the pituitary So I get yearly checks ups for the testoserone, but, despite the consultant wanting to do follow MRI and SPECT scans...nothing came about on asking my (new) GP recently, she basically laughed in my face and said those lesions could have come form anything and why would they do follow up MRI scans and ME is psychosomatic anyway... omg I am sooooooooooo sick of the medical "profession". meh. Um, why do follow up MRI? because my pituitary gland is screwing up, not triggering testosterone production, and it's a NEUROLOGICAL DISEASE? shouldn't it be sane common practice to do yearly MRI scans on us? or is that veroboten because a) it would prove there's actual brain damage etc going on b) cost too much ??
