Until then, could you shed some light and maybe give me a question or 2 to ask when I do go. I was told, 'There seems to be some thinning of the lining of the nerves in the brain. There are more tests that the Neuro can and will do." end of statement. From Nurse. My eyes must have been large because she followed with , It may be nothing more that normal ageing. I am 56. I was rearended in a car wreck in 2000. My carotid artery was torn, the mussels in my left shoulder were torn(-seat belt) pressure- and I have had 2 ops on my neck to repair disks. I also have had TIA's and seem to be having some memory problems now. any info? Thank you so much for reading.

The doctor is implying there might be demylenation.

This can happen on multiple sclerosis.

So, neurology consult and further testing are needed.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
