I love how she pulled up my older MRI and compared it to my newer MRI and showed me what everything meant and decided that I needed a new your MRI to see how things have changed with the contrast even this time! Because my last MRI was not with contrast! And she also decided that with my MRI it did not mean that I had "MS" right off the bat... it could mean many other DIFFERENT things that I have to go through to figure out what it ACTUALLY is!
