    Default Fainting, MRI & feeling unwell

    Hello all, just seeking some advice or support.

    I fainted last week and I'm not sure if I hit something on the way down, but my head hasn't been the same since.

    I had an MRI, no results yet. Not sure what they show.

    I've been getting cold and hot flushes, dizzy spells, feeling sick and just tired.

    Ideas?

    concussion?? I really don't have a clue, but I am hoping you get some results from the mri. I hope they make a very close examination of the mri. hugs, marie.

    I hope results are good also. I feel very tired. My head hasn't been the same since then. Def not pregnant. I get dizzy spells without warning. Scary.

    What is the hold up with the MRI results? They should be able to give you results on what is happening in your head very quickly. I would definitely push harder. Have they given you any indication as to what could be amiss?

    Have you had a headache at all?

    Default Fainting, MRI & feeling unwell

    Absolutely push for results, they normally take 24 to 48hrs to get to the doctor quicker if need be. I have a brain mri every year due to a cyst in my brain and generally its maximum two days for results.

    I've had a headache and feeling unwell since I fainted last week, I'm sure I'm just run down, I had the MRI earlier this week.

    I'm sure if there was anything they would of rang. Right?

    Plus I think I need my eyes checked, it hurts when I do screen time a lot, but these specsaber and opsm always find something, so I think I would need an eye specialist? Do they exist?

    A cyst? Really? Can I ask if you had symptoms? No need for surgery? Do you get days when your not well?

    My dr doesn't work everyday. I'm hoping his there on the weekend.

    Ring the doctor surgery and ask if results are in, if not ring the MRI place and tell them the doctor has not received.

    I would trust OPSM and Specsavers if for no other reason an Opthalmologist will cost a lot more money just to have your eyes tested.
