Question about Magnetic resonance neurography (MRN)I am suffering from eye pain and headaches continuously for more than 30 years. The medical condition has not been diagnosed after taking CTs and several MRIs of the brain does not detect any abnormality. I have bruxism, pain in teeth,occiputal pain etc. Will MR neurography help?
No. If this has been going on for 30+ years with a normal MRI than you can be sure there is no serious cause. Pain is like a fire alarm, important to warn of danger. If the fire alarm has been sounding for 30+ years then that is really distressing but there is no point in looking for a fire! The fault lies in the electrical system and it is very likely that a head pain expert can help you: but not by taking more tests, you need to settle down the overactive pain nerves. If the brain is a computer, you have a software not a hardware problem.
