Hi and thanks for the query,
Hepatitis and Neurocysticercosis have no relationship. Neurocisticercosis is a brain infection due to migration and scarification of a worm in the brain. This infection is usually gotten from eating beef or pork meat, which most of the time is uncooked or not well cooked, causing the infection to be transmitted form the animal to man. This infection has different characteristics in different persons, and has different areas of predilection amongst different persons. I suggest it could be the brain in your case. symptoms like headaches and fits could be experienced in your case. I suggest you run some serological or blood tests for this infection which actually do exist for further confirmation and the opinion of a neurosurgeon or neurologist could be worthwhile.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
