Some may remember I had frantically posted a few times. I think we finally nailed it and I wanted to say thank you for the many support and responses.

I had a MRI due to some chronic neck pain which I've had a chronic pain issue for years especially after back surgery. My symptoms as we went back and looked started 3 days after MRI.

The last 3 years they have continued to do MRI and a PET scan since I was going downhill fast. Finally my gyno did a toxicity test. All my symptoms were similar to Neuro disease.

I have gadolinium poisoning which is the dye from MRI machine. Mine was Almost a 7 and suppose to be 0.019. My lead was up also.

I start chelation therapy next week. Thank you again for support. Bobbi Jo

Great news! And it helps pre-diagnosis people remember there are a lot of things (besides ALS) that can make our body act a little abnormally. Don't give up hope and jump to ALS. The anxiety will just complicate the diagnosis...
