Diagnosed with cavernous malformation. Have high pressure in head. Tingling in back. Arteries fine. MRI fine. Suggestions?

Hello my father was diagnosed with an cavernous malformation 8 years ago and hasn't had problems until recently. He's been having high pressure in head (like beating) that wakes him up at night, headaches, tingling in the back and top of his head, and also high blood pressure even though his arteries are fine. He had an MRI less than a year ago and everything was fine. Could this new symptoms be due to his cavernous malformationt?

Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.

Cavernous malformations can bleed at times, causing headaches and other symptoms depending on the location of cavernous malformation and bleed.
Whether or not the malformation has bled, can be found out by doing a CT scan of the brain.

As of now, these symptoms can also occur due to his high blood pressure.
I would suggest to control his BP for now. Symptoms should settle down. If not, then, you can see a doctor and get his CT scan of the brain done.

I hope it helps.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
