I went to the ER yesterday for a couple of fainting spells and they did a head CT. While they did not find the cause of the fainting spells, this morning when I was reviewing my test results from the ER, I noticed that the head CT said "Slight prominence of the CSF spaces could represent premature atrophy. Correlate clinically. " Of course I immediately thought of Alzheimer's, but a Google search turned up all kinds of other fun diseases that cause premature brain atrophy, like Huntington's. Now I am scared to death. Obviously they didn't think this information was important enough to share with me in the ER, but I have an appointment set up with a doc on Friday to discuss these results and hopefully NOT "confirm them clinically." Please help me! I am freaking out! I should add that I have no neurological symptoms like weakness or blurred vision or any symptoms of dementia.
