But again: if no MRI was done, SM way well be part of the problem and just be masked by whatever medication regime is being used. Any painkilling medication will help with SM symptoms too, and all the other kinds of scans will not supply any information that would help determine SM. If the meds are helpful then that is really good! And in that case I wouldn;t be pursuing an MRI. But the meds may well be helping with existing SM.
We did various tests and x-rays before we came to that conclusion. Neither of them needed an mri to see if it was SM and are doing well on meds.
