MRI Results

Hello everyone, didn't do a post yesterday as I was feeling terrible with pains in the tummy and a touch of the runs and just not myself. After I spoke to mum last night I went to bed and this morning I woke feeling like myself so all good.

Went to the doctors this morning and the MRI showed no signs of MS which will put Kathy's worry to rest. However, there is signs of borderline ventriculomegaly, yeah something I have never heard of. Dr Google tells me this about it:

Ventriculomegaly is a brain condition that occurs when the lateral ventricles become dilated. In fetuses, the most common definition uses a width of the atrium of the lateral ventricle of greater than 10mm. When the measurement is greater than 15mm, the ventriculomegaly may be classified as more severe. Enlargement of the ventricles may occur for a number of reasons, such as loss of brain volume (perhaps due to infection or infarction), or impaired outflow or absorption of cerebrospinal fluid from the ventricles. Often, however, there is no identifiable cause. The interventricular foramen may be congenitally malformed, or may have become obstructed by infection,haemorrhage , or rarely tumour, which may impair the drainage of cerebrospinal fluid, and thus accumulation in the ventricles.

Does that help, no, didn't help me either.................


Anyway I have to back and see the neurologist, referral has been sent off now I just have to wait for an appointment. I got the impression it isn't anything to worry about at this stage but it may explain why I get so many headaches.

  4. I don't know what that means. I hope your doctor takes the time to really explain it. Maybe you could make a list of questions for your healthcare provider.
