Endocrinology Questions? Ask an Endicrinologist for Answers ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry about your daughter
it sounds like she could have a slipped disk in her neck causing pinched nerve and numbness of her arm.
steroids are good to decrease swelling in the spine.
but need to be tapered down slowly when stopped to prevent steroid insufficiency in her body.
it sounds like she would benefit from an MRI scan of her neck and upper back spine to look at bones and nerves and disks in the area to look for pinched nerves.
let me know if yo have questions.
did she get a brain MRI scan?
I would get copies of her MRI scan reports
I would be happy to review them with you
make sure the MRI scans were performed with IV contrast
if she has numbness, she should ask her GP doctor to refer her to see a neurologist nerve doctor for nerve testing.
