I'm supposed to have one for my migraines. The neurologist I went to didn't recommend it...I insisted, just to rule anything awful out like tumors, or God knows what else...he said my reflexes were good and since I had been having the migraines for 15 yrs. and they seemed to be related to my menstrual cycle, and/or were stress related, he felt the catscan was unnecessary. I did some research last night and found out that one brain catscan is equal to 4-8 months of background radiation...the kind of radiation that we are exposed to on a daily basis, I'm thinkin of baggin the whole thing 'cause that just doesn't sound good. What do you think I should do?
