Hi, I had lasik 6/19/12. During the Alegretto procedure, I did not feel anything until the flap was being smoothed back in place on my right eye. I could feel pain with the pressure (5 out of 10). When I went home to rest (I was told to just take...

I can understand your discomfort because of repeated headaches and the unsuccessful outcome of LASIK.

However, I would like to reassure you that the chance of any nerve damage during LASIK is remote. Also, the fact that regular headaches started almost a month after the procedure rules out...

It looks like you are suffering from ischemic changes of the brain. Since it is in several areas I suggest you get a Doppler cv done.

Hi, I m a high-school student taking Human Anatomy & Physiology and I have a question dealing with brain damage to the Occipital Lobe. Can the injured suffer from symptoms like hallucinations and speaking impairments if a large Occipital hemorrhage is subsequent in the Occipital Lobe due to severe trauma from a car crash?

But that is just one possibility.

I slipped on ice this am onto concrete hitting my occipital lobe. No excessive dripping bleeding, just blood on my hand if I touched site. No change in pupils, no other symptoms except slight headache maybe five hrs after fall and again maybe 8 hrs after fall. Could that just be from stress, I hope.

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms and wish to reassure you that they are suggestive of mild head injury and there is no need to worry.

Yes, possibly stress is the cause of your headache; in addition, fall could be partly responsible.

If pain is more, you can take...

42 y/o female. non-smoker, healthy although suffered a stroke 4 years ago due to blood clot and a PFO. Recently had some vision problems with vertical lines appearing in my vision for about 10 minutes. Am also experiencing a very heavy feeling in the back of my head when I bend over. Scheduled for a MRI, but is the head pressure something to be concerned with?

Thanks for the query,

I understand your concern

The possibilities of this vison problem could be due to n intermittent poor blood supply to the eyes or even some seizure like activity in the occipital lobe (situated in the back side of the brain). Your MRI will guide us better to deal your...
