As the title says, I'm curious if anyone has ever had a pet scan of the brain and if so, what were the results?

Mine showed hypometabolism in the cerebellum, medulla, pons & occipital lobes. What exactly could cause this? I have a diagnosis of AE, but just in case AE isn't the right diagnosis, what else could this be?

any condition that affects brain blood flow, any condition that affects cerebral fluid pressure, etc!
