    Why do they want a PET scan? A PET scan is normally a scan of your whole body. There is a MRI, and a Cat Scan, that can be done. But I'm not sure what that will show (unless your planning on doing ECT). Have you spoken to your doctor or just randomly requesting the scan...? Keep in communication with the doctors, and gather a good support system.

    In addition to your doctor, maybe see an allergist or nutritionist. It's just a guess, wondering if you may be allergic to something. I had an EEG scan done which was compared to a database to see what medications I'd be responsive to and found a psychiatrist which used it to recommend medication. Been on my medication for 6 weeks, definitely improved my anxiety but depression and lack of motivation still here, so might still be a process to find the right meds. Here's the company which coordinates scan, database, and psychiatrists.
