How do I go about getting an Angiogram and MRI scan for my schizophrenia? My negative symptoms are horrible and I want to check my brain to see if the arteries in my brain are clogged from all the Fat in my system. I have high cholesterol and high blood pressure and I saw a study that negative symptom severity was linked to Cholesterol.
My negative symptoms are:
My internal monologue is disappearing at this rate. Your own voice that you hear in your head when you speak inside your head - it is fading, as in like the volume of the sound is getting lower or smaller.
My emotions are fading. Every emotion in fact, not just pleasure or anhedonia.
My cognitive abilities are fading. My ability to think is just getting weaker and weaker. Everything you can link to the ability to think and problem solve - It is fading. Sadly, I’m not even joking.
My memory is getting worse.
What steps can I take to get an Angiogram and MRI scan to find out what the problem is? I believe the arteries in my brain are being deprived of oxygen. It makes much sense to me. If it’s not the problem, then I’m still going to try and find out - so I can rule it out of the equation.
