anyone have advice on how I can get MRI of the chest/abdomen done?
I think I have Tapeworm
or roundworm... I can't really be sure what from my perspective but I lean towards some type of roundworm [but there are many many roundworm species so that doesnt narrow it down much]
I still feel heavy movement in my chest and upper back area and belly... I am not sure if it is in my intestines or around them or outside of them or what... the stuff in my chest is really bad and when it starts moving I have to lie down with exhaustion... there are audible squirting noises often also
the ideal MRI for me would be of chest+abdomen but I would settle for chest only... however I have no clue how to get it
I have been trying various parasite
drugs with little-to-no results
I intend to get tests like metametrix done sooner or later but for now I want to ask you all about medical imaging tests
I have had these medical imaging tests done:
-xRays of chest and ab
-Ultrasound of liver
-CT scans with contrast of ab and lower chest
I do not think the MRI will really be that helpful but I am desperate and it feels like the next logical step as far as medical imaging is concerned... I am very sick and going through all my options
the tests I have were not really helpful although some gave various results like the CT scan said I had stuff that was interpreted as inflamation but could have been anything really
the next test I want to get done is MRI of the chest/abdomen area in hopes that it might show inflamation or even worms and
I am seeing welfare doctors at the university of louisville area because I have no money
and I am trying to get MRI of chest done and I am not sure about how to go about requesting one...
should I tell doctors x symptoms to get y test? I doubt if i simply request one I can get it on demand since they are welfare doctors and mri is expensive? I do not want to tell them I think I have worms for obvious reasons... if I say I think i have mucous congestion or something they might not do MRI
I was considering going to a private hospital and paying for it if possible... anyone know how to get MRI without referral?
need advice on this one
