I'm not dying!
« on: June 26, 2018, 02:39:44 PM »
So,  I just have to share this news.  I've been having strange headaches for 6-8 months, above and beyond my usual migraines.  I finally went to my doctor about 2 months ago, and we started doing tests...

My gp ordered an MRI and referred me to a neurologist.  Saw the neurologist ~1 month ago, she said the MRI without contrast my gp ordered wasn't informative, and I would need another MRI with contrast, and a CT scan.  She was reassuring but we were trying to rule out an aneurysm or brain cancer....

Well, my results came in yesterday but the neurologist is out on maternity leave and the nurse was out sick.  Finally heard from her this morning.  CT and MRI with contrast let us rule out the big scary things like cancer or aneurysm!!!  I am so happy right now.  I've got a husband and young kids and I was just so worried.  We didn't tell anyone about the concern or testing; I didn't want to deal with their worry or questions.  I also didn't want my 10 year old to hear anything- she's a worrier anyway and I didn't want her freaked out.

So, TLDR I don't have brain cancer or an aneurysm, and this is one of the few places I can shout Yay! about it.
