Ok, so I had a head CT scan done about two weeks ago that showed possible premature brain atrophy. Am following up with a neurologist on Thursday just to be sure that it is nothing. Both a neurologist I paid to talk to online and my family doctor reassured me that I really shouldn't worry about this, that the wording of the radiology report is very reassuring, and that it is a common finding with no meaning. I also have no symptoms of neurological disease. However, I had a head CT done 5 years ago for migraines that was normal, as far as I know, but it has not yet been compared to the one done two weeks ago because the imaging place that did it can't find it. Long story short, my family doc is going to have my records from 5 years ago pulled out of storage and dig up that old CT report and call the imaging place with the chart number so that my neurologist can compare the two when I see her. I know this is RIDICULOUS, but despite TWO doctors telling me not to worry, for some reason I am worried because the neurologist is going to be able to compare the two studies and I am just sure she will find something terrible. I feel like if she could only see the most recent CT scan, everything would be fine, but being able to do that comparison somehow makes me way more nervous. I can't exactly figure out why, but I can't even heed the advice of two doctors not to worry. Is that just how HA works, that is has some mysterious, quasi-superstitious element to it?
