Point of clarification so that you are clear about concussions and TBI's. If you had a "momentary loss of consciousness" then, by definition you DEFINITELY suffered a concussion and even more to the point, a TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
That event by itself should get the attention of at least a neurologist
with a subspecialty or interest in this type of problem. I suggest you see such a specialist.
You are a bit on the young side to have PARKINSON'S DISEASE and there is no correlation between your cravings and the onset or risk of developing PARKINSON'S DISEASE.
In fact, perhaps it would help to understand that PARKINSON'S DISEASE comes about as the result of a LACK or DEFICIENCY in dopamine
in the body.
If you have read that smoking
and banana ingestion RAISE dopamine then, clearly this is against the notion of developing PD.
I am not sure what the MRI
scan is actually going to show in your case and yes, you are correct.
PD is not something that can be diagnosed by MRI or any other imaging study. It is still a diagnosis made on clinical (not laboratory or diagnostic testing) grounds.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
