    Hi @gillian72 :)

    I'm afraid I haven't heard of this test before. Have you spoken to your doctor to ask what you can expect from the test? Are you worried about it?

    Hi @gillian72 - I haven't had this evaluation, but all it really is is an ultrasound scan to either side of your neck, which will take probably 15-20 mins if that. :)

    @chiarieds hiya char thanks for replying back to me , well this test seems easy paesy don't think they we'll find owt in my neck it always feels like it's hanging on by a thread like one of them bobble heads u see in people's cars lol ? May I ask char as iv read some of ur replys on some other ppls posts on neurological posts if my Mir test was narrowed down to two conditions is that it for me so I've got one or the enough condition I know we can't give medical advice on here but would be good to know someone who has experience or has neurological disorder themselves it's much better then mr Google answers lol thanks xxx?

    If only life were that simple @gillian72 - I know I've got 2 conditions; one being neurological, & we have other members that have 2 or more different disorders, so it's not always clear cut. You might have just one thing or the other, but that's why we get tests done so Drs can confirm a diagnosis, or rule one or both out! Nice to hear from you. :)
