I have a question about getting MRI's of the thoracic spine. The only time I have gotten the thoracic spine MRI is for dx. I have been having recent problems with more spasticity, weakness, and pain in my legs. My neurologist then ordered MRI of the brain and cervical spine. I asked why not the thoracic spine. He said b/c it is good at getting a picture for dx but you get a better picture of activity from brain and cervical MRI's. I got my results and those results haven't changed. Basically I think I'm getting more lesions in my thoracic spine b/c that's where all my problems are getting worse. Soooooo...... do I just let that go and then wake up one day without being able to walk or get extremely weakened legs because I keep getting lesions in my spine and not have done anything for it????? I am frustrated. What do you guys think???
