  • How can I interpret the results of my MRI or CT scan?
  • Can I still have an MRI if I'm not a fan of enclosed spaces?
  • Will my condition or treatment affect my lifestyle, work, or life?
  • Is my condition caused by my genetics, or are there lifestyle choices I'm making that could be exacerbating it?
  • Are there any lifestyle changes I can make to reduce my symptoms or the severity of my condition?
  • What can I expect from my condition in the short term and long term?
  • What treatments are available for my condition? Are there any side effects of the condition that can affect my lifestyle?
  • Can I expect any changes to my quality of life because of my condition in the short term or long term?
  • Are there any restrictions on my activities due to my condition or things I should avoid that will make my condition worse?
  • Will I need anyone to help with my daily tasks because of my condition in the short term or long term?
  • Will I need live-in assistance or nursing assistance at a facility in the short term or long term?
