the doctor probably feels that there still could be craniocervical issues despite normal seeming MRI. perhaps that is why some doctors want a DMX, Upright MRI, etc etcHi,
I have good news! Well, I think it’s good news. I sent in my supine 3T MRI scan to Dr B. However I haven’t been able to try traction since I live in the U.K. (have written a post explaining a few posts back).
“Your MRI imaging is quite normal in appearance.
Try cervical traction with your local physical therapist.
If you obtain dramatically positive results with the traction, then email me back about your feedback, and we will select you for a visit or a videoconference.
If the traction does not provide dramatically positive results, then proceeding with the next steps is not indicated.”
My question is, if the MRI looks normal, why would I try traction? Its made me confused and panicky :/ (i have severe anxiety and ocd so.. yeah).
Edit: but I’m so happy my MRI results are normal. As I’ve been very mentally unwell from this as well as very physically unwell (I have severe M.E) from the stress. Let alone the fact I can’t travel to America now or the fact I don’t have any money for surgery either!! I’ve got a lot of other issues anyway which I want to address. Copied from another thread where I posted: I have severe M.E btw, and I don’t have EDS. I don’t have normal PoTS, I have the hyperadregenic type if I have it. No hypermobility except the absolute slightest in my elbows which may not even be enough to say elbow hypermobility. I was however born with nervous system “fight or flight problems”, autism which requires a lot of daily reassurance (which wasn’t diagnosed until I was 27) and severe sensory processing difficulties which I never had help for. Just Incase anyone’s interested. )
