Brain Stem, Axonal??? UGH…

I went back and looked at the MRI’s & MRA done on me in the last couple of years… as far as I can tell, they did not MRI the brain stem…

I know of the right temporal lobe damage and the blood stain showing a bleed or stroke on the brain… those I’m reasonably sure happended before I turned 16 years old… now, when did they happen????

We know that the occipital part of my skull recieved repeated blows…

We know that I was strangled….

We know that I was repeatedly beaten from infancy to 17 years old….

We know I suffered multiple TBI’s and concusions…. and one was severe….

We know I suffered blunt force trauma fractures and the picture evidence shows that as early as 5 years old… with 2 broken or fractured wrist and multiple broken fingers…

We know I suffered blunt force trauma fractures to the ribs, arms and legs… nuclear bone scans proved that when I was active duty…

Oh boy… I’m so tired of reading medicine… this pandemic takes a lot of my brain power and I just want to play for a while… please…

If a brain stem injury, I would expect to have some kind of lesions or damage to the axonal… thing… honest, I’m tired of reading medicine…

So do I ask for a MRI of the brain stem or has that already been ruled out??? I just read the 3 MRI/MRA reports and I can’t tell if I should push for one or not… so… punt….

I have a PT appointment this week and the kid is smart, which is why he got my repeat business and hubby as a patient… let him look at the reports and see what he thinks about another MRI….

Rereading the last MRI, I have 3 discs in my neck bulging, or were… when we heard that breaking sound, I’m guessing per the PT kid, that all went back in place and that instability I felt, was everything lining up and working right again after that surgery on the El Paso VA table, that nearly took my life in 2011…. just wow on VA death care…

Anyhow… the exercises for my neck, it feels more stable… I still hear clicking and crunching sounds, and I’ve heard those, since Japan… so 50 years of noise, that I now get… go figure…

If brain stem injury… it would explain the memory loss and may make it so, that those memories will never appear again… but I got doubts on that… what I’ve remembered recently….

Mommy and sis would be running for the hills to hide… oh that legacy they thought they were leaving so squeaky clean…. not any more…. boo….

Margie, I remember….
