At the end of Oct 2007 - I got a terrible headache and was nauseous. Thought I was getting the flu. The symptoms lasted about 8 days and nothing helped either symptom. Sleep did relieve the pain until I awoke. Along with this was an odd feeling in my right side. It feels like my circulation wasn’t right or a clot.
I went to the doctor while still having the symptoms. She did blood work, EKG and sent me for an MRI. Blood work and EKG were normal. She did not test for lime decease.
1st MRI on 11/9 found a small asymmetric focus of increased T2 prolongation in the right pons. This may reflect an incidental capillary telangiectasia. Alternatively this could reflect a small focus of gliosis.
Referred to another MRI -
2nd MRI (11/20) with contrast the results were – There are 2 small nonspecific foci of T2 prolongation in the pons, unchanged compared to recent exam (11/9). These are without mass effect or abnormal enhancement. This is nonspecific and is uncertain etiology, though may represent minimal chronic small vessel ischemic change or gliosis. Minimal demyelination could be considered as well, though the appearance is not particularly suggestive of this. No additional abnormality is identified.
Symptoms have dissipated with the headaches and nausea but my right side remains sore, numbness in arm, back, leg and right side of head like a pinched nerve.
I will be going to a Neuro on 11/28.
Does this sound familiar to anyone????
