I had the MRI on my head and neck last night. I didn’t know what to hope for: that it would show something to explain the numbness in my jaw, or that it wouldn’t show anything. Either outcome seemed unsettling.
I just heard from my doctor with the results: both scans are fine! She can’t explain the numbness, but it is not tumor in my brain or neck!
I am extremely relieved! I had really blocked off thinking about it, so I was surprised at how intensely relieved I feel hearing this news… or rather, lack of news.
I don’t like not knowing, but in this case knowing could signal imminent disaster.
