Neuralgia is pain due to nerve damage or irritation. In the head, the most common ones are Trigeminal (pain around face, jaw) and cervical (pain to the scalp to the back of the head and neck). Dr. F READ MORE
Could be thyroid, carpal tunnel syndrome, anxiety. Talk to your doctor to determine the best path to evaluate your symptoms. Dr. F READ MORE
Seems that your friend has a lot going on. May I suggest you demonstrate your earnest concern for your friend and get her to see a doctor to evaluate all those things going on with her. Dr. F READ MORE
I suggest talking with your Rheumatologist again and repeat tests for SLE and associated MCT disorders. From what you are manifesting and the pictures, it certainly looks like that's a possibility. One more thing to consider would be getting tested for Lyme disease. It can certainly manifest with many of your findings. Dr. F. READ MORE
Although it could be lack of geographical knowledge: If in fact he has memory problems (check with something you know he knew in the past) and does not seem to be acting normal, then he should have a Neurological evaluation and a Neuro-psychological evaluation as well. One more thing to check would be to make sure he is not engaging in recreational pharmacology (drug use/abuse). Dr. F READ MORE
Check the vitamins and supplements you are taking. If you are taking too much of the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K), that might be the culprit. There may be other supplements (blood builder) that may cause the same. If that doesn't solve the issue, call your Dr. for a visit to evaluate your problems. Dr. F READ MORE
Anatomical variant may or may not necessarily be associated with your back pain. See your doctor for further assessment and treatment if it persists. READ MORE
Yes, absolutely. It is done all the time to treat seizures with EXCELLENT results. Dr. F READ MORE
To answer your question specifically. Yes, you could open doors while having a "wondering seizure", you can also do many other things. Seems like you had the seizure at the precise right (or wrong time) when the front door was left open. Glad to hear you were alright after waking up unconscious on a bridge. This is very concerning however. I suggest you see your Neurologist and get an EEG and Sleep study to determine what is going on exactly. I would also revisit "A Lot" of the medications you are taking to make sure some may not be the culprit. Last but not least to make sure you stay home deadbolt the entrance and exit doors with double key when you go to sleep, that way, there's less of a chance of you wondering away while having one of those wondering seizures. No telling where you could wind up next time. Dr. F READ MORE
I do not have a specific name for your symptoms as described. There may be a problem in your vision pathways and its input to the balance center in your brain, brainstem, and cerebellum. While psychogenic symptoms cannot be ruled out, I think it warrants an evaluation. Talk to your parents and have them take you to a Neurologist for a detailed evaluation. Dr. F READ MORE
This is something that you need to have it looked at right away. It could be problems related to your fusion or adjacent areas. Call your doctor and get in rather urgently. Dr. F. READ MORE
It depends on the damage. Some may be permanent, others may take months (up to 6 months). Also, you may experience partial recovery. Take vitamin B6 25 to 50 mg daily and it will help with nerve repair. Dr. F READ MORE
It's hard to say, but I suggest you contact your doctor and get a scan done and possibly refer you to a Neurologist. Dr. F READ MORE
Long-term use of lansoprazole has been associated with dementia. Talk to your doctor about stopping this and try using tums as an antacid with some eating habits modification. See a Neurologist with regards to treating your dementia. READ MORE
I suggest you stop therapy and have your neck and shoulder assessed for any problems by your doctor. Get some imaging studies and make sure there's no acute process going on. Dr. F READ MORE
Sounds like complicated migraines, other problems need to be ruled out as well. Talk to your doctor for a referral to a neurologist for further evaluation. Dr. F READ MORE
Without all your clinical information, a whole conundrum of problems or diagnoses come to mind. It sounds concerning about all the areas of increased signal and enhancement. This is suggestive of inflammatory and/or infectious or malignancy (like I said before it is hard to say without your whole history). I suggest you get in touch with the Dr. that ordered the MRI and go in for a follow-up visit and further testing. Dr. F. READ MORE
Quite candidly, I cannot come up with a likely possibility. I suggest when this happens again take pictures so that would make the description a bit easier. I do not know of scars that appear and disappear spontaneously. I as well share the skepticism of freezing something that one does not know what it is. Talk to your Neurologist and if he/she does not know what it is once they see the pictures, then ask for a referral to an appropriate specialist. Dr. F READ MORE
You need to see your doctor and get a scan of your brain and middle ear. Do not let this go on without getting it checked. Dr. F. READ MORE
This can happen occasionally and is not a major concern. It often lasts a couple of days and goes away to again happen down the road and at different or the same area. It can be associated with high caffeine consumption (try cutting back if it's the case). If it persists for over 1 to 2 weeks, then have your doctor see you and/or see a Neurologist. Dr. F. READ MORE
