    not sure about mri result

    I have had a letter from the hospital dr saying my mri scan test results showed no significant abnormality. Does anyone know for sure what this means? The more I think about it means there is an abnormality but not what they suspected. Does anyone understand this for sure from their own experience. ? Thanks.

    It's normal. Nothing sinister. It's good news.

    They want to see me again though. That must mean there is something else they want to do?

    What was MRI for?

    I agree that "No abnormality" is good news. Nothing of significance has been found and appointment could just be routine follow-up to explain this to you in person.

    " no significant abnormality" so they must have seen something. I still have lots of pain every day

    Whatever it is that they've 'seen', it obviously isn't significant.

    You will have to find out what's going on if you've had pain for such a long time.

    KK77 I agree. That is what I have been trying to do for the past 8 1/2 years. I have had investigations and scans which have been repeated. I have paid for a private consultation as well as on nhs. Unfortunately , because the pain caused me anxiety and depression the
    drs insist a) its due to health anxiety and/or b) its functional pain. Well yes I have anx and dep. because I have pain almost daily. . Last night I was sitting in a car park on my own crying due to the pain. There have been irregularities on 3 scans and on at least 6 blood tests. I keep insisting there is something physically wrong with me because there is, although the m.h.u. were intent on trying to convince me I have health anxiety. Well , yes I'm anxious about my health. With good reason.I am waiting for my next hospital appt at the general surgery clinic and want to be as prepared as possible. I was thinking that they may have found something on the scan which although might not seem too important on its own, may provide a missing piece of the puzzle. Possibly they think I may panic if they put in in the letter and solve the thing myself! I probably would to be honest, I'm in such a run down state.

    Busterrufus, I just wanted to recommend a very good book which may help you understand your chronic pain better..It's called "Coping Successfully With Pain" by Neville Shone.
