Pineal Gland And Mri Dye

So I got an MRI last Friday, and they called me up on Monday to tell me they found something abnormal with my Pineal Gland. They wouldn't tell me anything else about it, so I had to go back in this past Friday and get another one with extra scans....I don't go to my Dr. to discuss the results of my MRI until next Tuesday. My question was, has anyone else had problems with their Pineal Gland?

Something wierd about the dye for the MRI as well, it's the first time I've "passed out" laying down that I've been aware of. They came and put the dye in me, and about 2 minutes later I was counting the little lines in the light above me (because I was bored) and suddenly I jerked waking up. I was wide awake before that, so I don't think that I fell asleep. It was totally a surreal experience. I had really bad tachycardia at the time, and I know that some people have problems with needles, but I'm definitely not one of them (I think needles are fun! hehe). It felt like I wasn't even in my body. I dont normally use a wheelchair but I literally couldn't even stand up after it...which was wierd because I'd had an MRI the Friday before, and had no such problem.

Anyways, does anyone have any ideas?

Hi-

I've also got a pineal cyst. It was found during an MRI of my brain. I think it's big enough to almost be blocking my cerobrospinal fluid from circulating freely. It really freaked me out at first. I had follow-up MRI's every 6 months for a while. But, it never grew. I saw a specialist at Emory in Atlanta who speculated that it might give me problems when I was a little old lady. (I was in my early 30's at the time.) He told me to frequently roll my eyes back in my head B) . As long as I was able, the cyst wasn't growing. I've been following his advice. i haven't done any further MRI's. I think pineal cysts are relatively commonly and extraneous findings on MRI's.

Definately, follow your doctor's advice and look into it. Hopefully, it'll just be one of those weird thing you get to live with...

All the best-

Julie
