Mri and Cat scans ?

I have a friend who had a cat scan last week and it showed these results
and the person has been diagnosed with M.E./fibro for over 2o years
this was their first cat scan and mri of the brain due to slowed cognitive
thinking worst in all those years...and a tremor in the arm and
the cat scan came back as this...I wonder if anyone can tell me if they had one and
it showed this on the cat scan results?


no acute abnormality
extensive low density areas perventricular subcortical
white matter are indeterminate
this finding can be seen with small vessel disease
however deep white matter infraction or even small
metastatic lesions with associated vasogenic edema
are in the differential.


The nurse and another lady and ourselves thought it was brain cancer the way the
cat scan read, but the MRI said there was no brain cancer 3 days later.


I would like to know a Mri will be read by the radiologist doctor and come back
totally normal in a person after a cat scan with those results?
Do they recognize what Myalgic encephalomyelitis is from the white matter
described in the cat scan....but they do not even mention it on the MRI?
Two different doctors reading the cat scan and the MRI done 3 days apart.


We are just wanting to know if there is a doctor on the forum or someone who had a catscan
and these remarks in their lifetimes that has m.e. and fibromyalgia and also
do MRI's show anything that indicates you do have M.E. so that your internist
has proof you do have it, as an added test ?


Has anyone developed a hand tremor after years of having M.E.and their cognitive
thinking become much worse and their balance a problem now after years
of having M.E.?


thanks for your thoughts...

after having an illness that long the person is not scared they just want to know
more and no specialist in the area and could not afford to go to one
as they take private pay and no insurance...the ones we know of
out of state..

It's all way behind my pay grade but I found this fascinating: this finding can be seen with small vessel disease.

I don't think it's uncommon for brain scan results or other tests to show something that suggests a disease which does not pan out. This disease has a way of falling between the cracks. I had intermittent hand tremor and numbness on the left side that just eventually went away. My MRI was not normal but it was negative for MS...I was an inbetweener...

Hi Cort
well what color font do you want and size?
LOL let me know so I can accomodate you!o_O
LOL
thanks for sharing about the tremor and more with me..


I hope we get some replies to this..mri and m.e. from others who had those done...
and what their report said....

the cat scan was done on monday and on Wednesday I was having surgery and on the operating table
when I had told the operating room staff that my husband might have brain cancer as the cat scan
results handed to us one hour, before my surgery indicated...

he was to have a MRI ....after I got out of surgery...

a christian R.N.said to me while they were about to sedate me on the operating table...she
whispered to me...
I am praying for your husband..

perhaps his clear MRI....done the same day as my surgery.. after I got out of the operating room

I think it was a miracle

that he did not to have brain cancer...

so it was a friend...but it was my husband
we both have M.E. and fibromyalgia and multiple chemical sensitivity illnesses.
Diagnosed in 1995.


Thanks for answering,
Sheri

@sheri many of us here have serous neuro issues and are very sensitive to colors and contrast. It is not at all funny and you joking about it is sad.

Even with the option to change colors schemes using neon blue is almost painful for me to look at.

If you don't have this problem consider yourself lucky.

You can't go wrong with black.

Please
Go back and edit your text and change it to black.

Dear Cort
I was not making fun, I was trying to do the right thing with a little humor..as we do not feel humorous most of us
on any day..sorry you took it wrong..

I am a very compassionate person and caring...I am a giver not a taker
of others emotions or their health...
Again sorry you took it wrong..
