Do you know if they are willing to do a MRI on my 11yr. Old. I’m Wondering because she had a MRI when she was younger just thinking maybe they could compare the two.

I really don’t know - it depends on your insurance of the healthcare program that your daughter has (e.g. Medicaid, etc.) - but I agree, it would be interesting. I’ve heard of this being done just to eliminate any concerns that it may be an organic issue (e.g. brain tumor , etc.).
