I just got a spect scan back that says I have inflammation

Customer Question

I just got a spect scan back that says I have inflammation in my blood vessels in my brain. Do you know the cause? Can it be from being exposed to chemical spray that was sprayed in my apartment that I was allergic to? Methoprene???
Or could it be from a neck with narrowing of the stucture and C1 through 7 being degenerated discs? Please advise or from a hit in the head? or from an abusive boss always threatening me.. setting me up to get fired.. and ruin my reputation and make me drive past my driving restrictions when I have a neck full of herniations and bulges?

Do you have the SPECT report? was it HMPAO tracer? Showing reduced blood flow. Vertebrobasilar insufficiency? Do you have arthritic change in your cervical spine? You can lose blood perfusion in that situation. Please get back with me with information so I can give you a better answer. I don't think it's your boss.but that is not what you want to hear.
