    You will get a lot of good advice so that you can make the best decision. It is clear something must be done.

    Hope you get to a good doctor that can help!

    Lots of love

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Ok we saw a doctor yesterday. I'm truly not sure what I think. He says this cycst is not big enough, nor is it pressing on anything to cause her symptoms. Rae has had migraines since she was 12. That being said, Dr, thinks most of this is a chronic migraine. He prescribed a short round of steroids. They can knock out the migraine pattern. Also(which she has taken before) and gave her imitrex for the really bad migraines. He also suspects ADD which would explain the lack of concentration and forgetfulness, she is being sent to a specialist to determine if she truly has ADD. They will run another MRI in 6 months to see if the cyst has grown. I'm not sure I buy this, but the treatment for a cyst like this is radiation or brain surgery. So for now we will see if this brings her some relief. In the mean time, I got a copy of the MRI and am sending it to my son in law in Tacoma. He is in medical school and doing a internship at neurologist group. They said they would gladly take a look and give a second opinion on it. For now her symptoms continue, but we are hopeful this works. She really got upset at the doctors and told him what about this THING in my brain, he told her, Rae, this is not life threatening, but treating this is going to be a process. I pray he knows what he is talking about.

    Thank you for all your prayers and the letters. You have truly touched my heart and Rae's.

    Well I sure hope he is right...I mean he IS a specialist and should know right? It's a relief that you can get a second opinion though I am sure! And what an opinion! From someone who is being taught by the best! That will be a big relief I'm sure. I hope that she can feel better and that the new meds will help! (((HUGS))))

    Liz, it sounds like a positive visit, if he is right. I hope and pray that the 2nd opinion confirms it.

    My son takes Imitrex for his migraines - thankfully, they figured out some of his triggers and he has had very few in the last couple of years. He could take it at the first sign of one - he got the auras (I don't) and lay down for 20 minutes or so and then he could go back to class in high school. Before the Imitrex, he would have to come home and would miss a couple of days of school.

    Breaking the cycle of the headaches will also help with the concentration and forgetfulness. When the pain never really completely goes away, you just aren't your usual self. Keeping all of you in my prayers.
