Hi doctor,

I have headaches and double vision. I am in depression, crying at any time and not concentrating on things. I visited a psychiatrist and she advised me to get an MRI of the brain. Is her advise right? Is it necessary to get an MRI?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • But, the presence of headache and double vision point towards some intracranial pathology such as tumor, abscess, complex vertebral malformation among others and this cannot be detected without test.
  • In my view, you should go for the MRI test without delay as it is necessary.
