Customer Question

I had an MRI on my brain a year after complaining of sudden bouts of exhaustion after i felt something like a fuse blow in my head. Doctors still searching for cause of exhaustion. NHS neurologist stated from MRI that Brain looked normal.
However I have continued paid deep inside my ear radiating down my neck and up to the skull where I felt the fuse blow.
I feel I should have someone really examine the Brain MRI in that specific area to see if that is the cause of the problem. What do you think?

Hi there,Thank you for your question.I personally think that you could be having a nerve pain i.e. neuralgia.Nerve pain medications like pregabalin (lyrica) should be tried in your case to see if that helps with your pain.Neuralgia is something that is not seen on MRI.Let me know if you have more questions.I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options below.
