So, my health anxiety has definitely calmed down a bit... I'm worrying, but not actively worrying, if that makes sense. Anyway, last week I went back to the neurologist for a follow up appointment, and told him about all my symptoms (including the palinopsia- trails off of moving objects and after images), and he wasn't concerned.
He said neurologically he can't find anything wrong with me, and basically said bye until anything comes up. He reviewed the MRI I had done in November, and said it looks as normal as normal gets, and if that was his MRI he would be happy.
My problem is this: how am I supposed to trust his judgement when palinopsia is a symptom of a brain tumor? He said it's really not, and things like double vision and loss of vision are. Can I really rely on this MRI that was taken months ago, without contrast?
I have an ENT follow up appointment on Tuesday for my tinnitus, which is STILL there, so hopefully I can convince him to send me for another MRI. It's just hard too say, "Ok, I don't have a brain tumor" when palinopsia is linked to them... It makes me not trust the neurologist.
