What does brain herniation mean and can it be detected through MRI ?

A year later i still have... -Tingling in face , tongue,hands. Severe pains in my neck,head which are mostly rite on top or at the base of my skull.Feeling off balance,feeling of burning sensation on tongue and in head, neck pain , lower back pain ,facial pain,vision disturbances.Im in pain all the time, not just when I stand up I dont think but it does feel like pulling sensation on my head. have seen 3 nuerologist a infecious disease, cancer dr,autoimmune dr and stayed in the hospital last year test done were mri / mra of brain ,neck,lower spine,spinal tap,Ct of brain and mri 3 days after the spinal tap. Bloodwork showed b12 deficiency and vit d ( LAST YEAR THEY ALSO FOUND ABNORMAL ANTIBODIES IN MY BLOOD ), im miserable and have a 3 month old.I am only 21 years old.I have no energy and always feel ill.I had a compound fracture above my elbow ten years ago which I don t think has anything to do with it, but it was a major surgery. I have not had any test besides a CTscan of brain and a brain MRA ( not MRI )for about 6 months because drs. dismissed me and said it was stress or migraines. Is there a chance of brain herniation or anything life threatening after almost 10 months with nothing found on tests or the spinal tap? Could this be a CSF leak...or MS? Chiari? would that not show on those mris?What else could it be?

Thanks for query,
As all reports are normal you do not worry,
It seems that you are having anxiety neurosis.
There is no question of having brain hernia.
Forget all and develop self confidence.
Take B1,B6,B12,medicines.
If anxiety persists consult psychiatrist.
ok and bye.

I do believe that from not feeling well, I have developed anxiety about something happening to my head i.e ( herniation ).Or something more than it may be.I only know of certain things because, they were brought up by doctors in the beginning of the search for what was wrong. I will continute to take my vitamins and b12 injections but am still hoping for another answer for my pain not just for my anxiety.I know it is not just anxiety because I did not have this untill the onset last year and when ABNORMAL ANTIBODIES were shown on the titer.
