You need to ask your dr if your MRI’s were done with contrast. You need the contrast to see inflammation.

Emily had cranial nerve inflammation on her 1st brain MRI & the dr said she “lit up like a Christmas tree from the lower lumbar down”. Her 2nd brain MRI showed no inflammation – that was after 8 months of being on an intense IVIG schedule. She still had the inflammation on her spine. She hasn’t had an MRI since.

Diplopia (blurry vision) is common when you have cranial nerve inflammation. You need to find a specialist for your eyes. Just going to any old regular opthamologist isn’t a good idea. The eye dr should dialate your eyes & look for inflammation at the back of the eye.
