NEW STUDY! Parasym Plus™ for Multiple Sclerosis › Forums › PrettyIll.com Discussion › Skin › I have 2 CD discs of brain MRAs from 2006 and 2014.
I wanted to look at them to see if there were changes. I know that I have had a huge change in how I feel. The pressure that I get inside my head and neck have been more than I can handle. Activity makes it all so much worse. If you have intracranial pressure is it made worse with activity?
I am also trying to get all the info that I can to take to a doc that can help diagnose me. I’ve been looking up some online. We have none here. I continue to get worse.
That’s a good idea, I learnt a lot by looking at my ‘series’ of MRI’s spanning over several years. Have you managed to look at your disks, did you see any changes ? Just in case you’re having trouble, or nervous of how to access your images, the viewing software is usually supplied on the disk and often starts automatically, after you insert the disk (though I’ve had one or two that don’t!). Let me know how you get on.
Yes I have been looking at them. I’ve found other sites to compare. My uncle, now retired use to be a chief tech in brain scans. I’m going to see if he will look at them with me.
Yes, I went on many, many radiological websites, comparing MRI’s with anomalies against my own and found it all invaluable. It’s good that your uncle might help, he’s the ‘go to’ guy.
Movement and activity certainly worsens my intracranial pressure, any task that involves lifting, straining, bending, or particularly in my case (craniocervical instability) some head movements.
