I am 9 years post ck and I still have bouts of dizziness and facial numbness. They usually last a couple weeks or so and time in between episodes vary. Does anyone else have these issues? I haven't been for a follow up MRI in a very long time but called today to schedule one and it will be 2 weeks before they can get me in. I feel so frustrated and worried that something new is going on since it has been a very long time since my last "episode".

Get the MRI, but this is not all that unusual

Definitely getting the MRI. I was hoping to get in sooner than the 2 weeks I have to wait. Thanks for your reply :)

I had the MRI today and there are no changes since my last one...doc thinks its a flare up and prescribed some steroids.
