Hi everyone and good evening
I've put a post on here before because I had a sudden onset of numbness in my left hip and mid-spinal numbness which led to being cleared by a neurosurgeon from the back point of view. I was also cleared of spinal cancer and multiple sclerosis which I hadn't considered so that was good news
Coincidentally I was also recently diagnosed with moderately severe endometriosis and have had recent surgery to remove non-malignant tumours and detach my left ovary from being stuck to the pelvic wall.
So this led to an MRI through the NHS where they scanned my pelvis scare-iliac joints and both of my hips. Both scans have come back unremarkable.
So my question is? My symptoms are not made up - they came on suddenly in my left hip when I was menstruating and before my endo diagnosis/surgery. Do I need a specialist endo radiologist to read if there is any nerve compression by endo tissue in an MRI or what is the best scan to have in your experience? I have asked my GP to refer me to a specialist centre which she has kindly done and I am chasing up to see that they have received my referral.
Or is it all made up in my head and my nervous system is playing tricks on me?!! I'm feeling very frustrated because I know I'm not making it up and it is a new symptom.
I would be grateful if anyone who has had similar experiences could benefit me with their wisdom?
Thanks very much!!
