Mri scan arm

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan arm


Avatar n tn I had a brain mri scan for recurrent 'auras' thought to be due to migraine. The result of the scan came back normal except for a few spots of plaques. I am 50, is this normal? I am concerned that it is indicative of early degeneration associated with dementia.
Avatar n tn I understand these should be avoided while pregnant, but what if they are medically necessary? Has anyone gotten an MRI or Cat Scan while pregnant? What was the outcome, did it have an affect on your baby? Was it worth it? I have been experiencing agonizing pain in my left shoulder, neck, and arm, that sometimes radiates to my chest, making it hard to breathe. I am having a really hard time sleeping, and even functioning, and my quality of life has gone down because of it.

Avatar f tn I had many tests performed at that time, all of which returned normal, including MRI scan of the brain. After a couple of weeks the paralysis in my face went away but I still suffer on occasion from weakness in my left arm. Recently, after spending a wonderful day out, I developed paralysis in the right side of my face, as well as slurred speech, but no other symptoms. Again, I was admitted to the hospital overnight where they started me on Plavix.

Avatar f tn My doctor has now referred me to a rheumatologist as it is only them who can decide if I need an MRI scan because I insisted to my doctor that I must have an MRI scan to get to the bottom of all this. Arnica gel seems to help, in the meantime I will keep you informed, but greatly appreciate your views on this latest development, thanks, Jojo.
4084741 tn?1350808485 What are "non-specific" black spots on brain from a MRI scan mean? I do have my MRI disc but unsure how to post it here if that wld help. I finally got diagnosed with migraines with aura last year after a MRI scan without contrast. The neurologist spent a few mins lookin at them before my visit and that's what he told me. He wasn't very communicative nor helpful. He did want to do more tests but I moved back home to Texas.
Avatar f tn I have just got a MRI of my brain done and the report came back saying they found a 'solitary high signal intensity focus in the left centrum semi ocale measuring 0.3mm and most likely to me a small glyotic focus. I have been having problems with numbness in my right arm as well as left when laying down or even something simple like holding a phone to my ear. Each arm has it different times they go numb and also having focus issues with my eyes.
459111 tn?1250038308 He has had a slighty headache last couple of days above his left temple and then moves to right eye. But prior to Mri Scan 15 months ago he did have left side temple headache above ear thats why scan was ordered.
Avatar n tn The pain is in the top quadrant of each arm and aches intermittently throughout the day and night. When I press in a certain area on each arm, the area feels very tender and also lumpy (not sure if it is muscle or lymph node?). Generally the areas feel sore and achy as if I had been punched there. I have no neck pain and good ROM with each shoulder. When I raise my right arm/shoulder up sideways though, I do feel the right arm pain.
Avatar f tn Another issue I am having is not being to wipe with my right arm like I have always wiped. My right arm is weak and painful. Feels like muscle strain and at the elbow feels like joint pain. This started 3 months ago. I almost dropped my 2 year old niece one day. Ever since then I will not pick her up with that arm. Just thoughts.
Avatar m tn 30 PM they cnducted the MRI. The following morning, he felt a little better however his speach was still slurred and he was complaining about sharp pins and needles in his right arm, right hand and his right foot. He had feeling in those extremities but had no control and he couldn't walk. :Ater that day, the neurologist came in after reading the MRI. The MRI showed no signs of a stroke and no damage to the brain.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your reply, I was first told it was a rota cuff then a frozen shoulder then neuropathic pain then a shoulder impingement.......I had a mri scan but all that came back was mild tendonitis mild arthritis and evidence of 2 small bursa , my GP and pain clinic doctor said that the result of my scan does not warrant the amount of pain I am in. I have an appointment in oct to see a shoulder specialist hopefully he will help me.
Avatar n tn This yr they finally did an MRI that showed no tears or such. She has swelling of her arm, turns purples, get cool, throbs & piercing pains. It seems it has more to do with nerves from thpain she is having, but the swelling, coolness & purple color point a different way. We go to a Neuloogist next week & Orthopedic dr has called for a Venogram CT Scan.
Avatar n tn I have a lot of pain running through my left arm that i believe are cause from the degenrative disc as diagnosed through a cervical MRI. I have pupils that are of different sizes and have had muscle spams and "vibrations" in my legs. Can this be from the nreve issues from the degerative disc? I have had a brain CT that was negative, chest x ray that was negative, and have been clearing through an opthamologist for optical nerve issues.
Avatar f tn I had a cervical MRI done 14 Oct 08. One of the findings was hemangioma in C4. I need to know how serious this is and could it be the cause of the severe pain & lack of control in my left arm?
Avatar f tn 3 years ago I woke up with numb lip, like a beginning of Bell's palsy, I had bad coordination and bad perception of depth for weeks after. I would go short when trying to catch objects. nobody cared so I did nothing. recently I had MRI but for a different reason and nothing showed up.
Avatar m tn Most beneficial is either a CT scan or a MRI scan. Your PCP will determine which scan will be the better diagnostic tool based on his clinical examination. It is also possible, as ChronicPain suggests that you actually injured the anatomy in your cervical spine. Again there are too many possibilities to "guess" which injury may have occurred when you pushed that vehicle. Please let us know how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Radiologists vary in how they describe the data on the MRI. I've seen so many different ways of describing lesions - hyperintensity, white matter changes, lesions, enhancement - that it can be very confusing. They really need to be more consistent. I think it's worth following up with your neurologist, if you can afford it. What strength was the MRI done at? You can call the clinic and ask what machine they're using. A .
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, I have been suffering from pins and needles in my left arm and tingling and weakness in my index, thumb and second finger for about 4 week after having severe neck and shoulder pain for 3 days. I would be very grateful if you would decipher the results of my mri scan as I have to wait some time for an appointment with a neurosurgeon. THERE IS A LOSS OF THE NORMAL CERVICAL LORDOSIS CONSEQUENT TO MODERATELY SEVERE DEGENERATIVE CHANGE AT C4-5, C5-6 AND C6-7.
Avatar m tn Recently while in the hospital for atrial fibrillation, I told my cardiologist that I am having intermittent tingling and numbness in my left arm. He ordered a CT-scan to evaluate for cervical disc disease or herniated disc. The three-page report impression stated "multilevel degenerative disease throughout the cervical spine, as detailed above..." and ended with "Correlation with MRI may be useful to further characterize central canal stenosis and disc disease.
