Im only 17 and I have had many radiation tests done. I had a brain MRI and CT all in the span of one week recently. I also had 2 nuclear bone scan test done about a month after that. Ive had at least three CT scans of my stomach, numerous sinus CT scans, etc. I think most of these scans are to take the edge off my anxiety but lately I have felt extremely sick which is only making my anxiety worse. My ears are constantly popping, I have facial numbness, and I cant even feel pain anymore. WHile the numbness sounds like a good thing to some who dont want to be in pain, sometimes its good to have that pain as comfort to let you know that there is a problem and your dealing with it. ANy correlation with the radiation and my symptoms?
