Ok so that was that mystery solved but now what? Well, I’m currently waiting for an appointment for a MRI scan. This will establish if and where any damage has been caused. To either my brain or the spinal cord.
It’s fair to say I’m a little nervous. Having read sooooo much (maybe a little too much) I am well aware of the possible outcomes. Worst case scenario? Irreversible damage to either. I’ve read about SACD, subacute combined degeneration, which basically means life will never be the same. At the age of 34 this is kinda scary. I still consider myself quite young and have a huge amount of things left on my ‘to do ‘ list.
However, I have read that damage, if caught early enough, may be partially or even fully reversible. So I’m staying positive with that in mind. It’s a bit of a relief to have been able to eliminate some things straight away such as spinal cord compression due to passing tests for things like hyperreflexia.
