Hello everyone :). Wow, its been a while since the last time I was on here :( SO many things are going on in my life, I wish I could say they were all good. But anyway, the reason that I am posting today is because I had an MRI done of my brain/neck/upper and lower back about six weeks ago. Well, last week I went to my regular doctor (I made sure the radiologist sent him a copy of the report since he didn't order the MRI, my neurologist did) to talk to him about my meds and i figured while i was there I would ask him about my MRI. Well it seems that my brain is fine (Thank God!) and I have a few slipped discs and some arthritis. BUT the big one was that he said that the protective covering over my spinal cord is deteriorating....what the hell is that? He really couldn't give me any reasons for it but he did say it was pretty serious....well his exact words were "We need to follow up on this, its a big deal." I am truly scared to death and I don't think anyone really understands that. My boyfriend keeps telling me not to worry until we need to...until we find out exactly what it is. Well when my dr tells me something is a "big deal" and it involves my spinal cord it's time to worry. So I was just wondering if anyone has heard of anything like this...I can't find any info on the internet about it. Thanks so much in advance!
