Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

The definite treatment for brain aneurysm is surgery. This is a complex surgery and you should discuss it with her neurosurgeon.

Regarding control of seizures, medications are required to control them.

Multiple medications may be required at higher doses....

Hello! After going to the beach I started having a discomfort on my left side of my frontal lobe when I moved my head suddendly that discomfort dissappeared after a couple of days but after that I have been experiencing an almost continous pain on my left temple for about a week, then my left ear started ringing. I am on nasal spray and antibiotics now although the pain has not subsided. what should I do?
It could be a type of migraine or vascular headache you are having.Ear RINGING is not usual here.However you may try 10 mg of Sibelum for 5 days at night.If no improvement it may be better to get an MRI scan of your brain done and evaluated by a Neurologist or ENT surgeon.

Given the history of head injury and the subsequent onset of symptoms of fatigue, you are suffering from possible consequences of head injury itself rather than multiple sclerosis (MS).
You are having frontal lobe lesion on MRI which can explain the extreme fatigue, excessive sleep and sometimes...

Some times calcified granulomas are also seen in post tubercular resolved state of the past in which the TB may or may not have been diagnosed or you never had any specific symptoms of TB and it got resolved on its own. Get a TB immunological test done by Serum(blood sample extract) TB IgG and IgM.

my boyfriends son fell 15ft back in 2007. he hit his head , he has started havind nose bleeds that take awhile to get stopped. he also seems bippolar at times, could these be from his injury. I work as a cna on a nuero/stroke floor and u see what frontal lobe injuries result in, usually we get the sh*t beat out of us.the boy is 10 it happen in 07, now he has a knot on side of his neck below his ear . He will not listen to his father, could any of this be related to the fall or is it typical 10 yr old
Hello!
As he fell in 2007 and this neck swelling appeared in 2011, I think there will be no relation between this swelling and a past injury. So, don't think about this. You should consult to an ENT specialist for this neck swelling. It can be due to infection in the parotid gland ( a salivary...

i have this strange pain in the back of my head, like pressure, and it isn t a migraine , it hurts even more when i press against it and i ve searched online and from what i ve seen i should get it checked. I saw that the pain i feel is in the frontal lobe , and the symptoms described all match to what i feel. Changes in personality Swearing or behaving in a way that you normally wouldn t (loss of inhibitions) Losing interest in life (apathy) Difficulty with planning and organising Being irritable or aggressive Weakness in part of the face, or on one side of the body Difficulty walking Loss of sense of smell Problems with your sight or speech they all apply to me but i have been in therapy for a while and diagnosed with depression , anxiety, bipolar and they even checked me for schizophrenia as i hallucinate and hear voices. Could this be linked and should i be worried?
Hi there, Thanks for asking. You have a careful observation. Change in personality (and also aggressiveness as you mentioned), as well as change in smell, may be induced by tumors (benign or malignant) in front part of the brain. Weakness in one part of the face and on one side of your body are...

Well, I am a 17 year old male, and yesterday, i was just sitting down relaxing looking at my laptop. And out of no where i just felt a jolt type shock. in my head. say either you got shocked by a plug or along the lines of that. and although it didn t hurt, or anything, I did feel a little dizzy so i layed down fully and let it pass. I would just like to know if any symptoms involving this is serious or maybe it was just a weird thing with my frontal lobe , to central cortex. (that is where it sort of happened) Thank you for any information given, thank you in advanced.
Abrupt symptom shouldn't repeat again if does , go for check up with a medical practitioner who will check your BP, pulse, pupils. Syncopy has many reasons and often may require little treatment as well. Good thing that you lay down immediately. Watch for headache and visual disturbances if any....
