I just had a follow up with my neurologist after

I just had a follow up with my neurologist after having an mri w/o contrast done of my brain. My chief complaint was having headaches since childhood, occasional dizziness and facial numbness that comes and goes. My symptoms are not severe but the dizziness and numbness were new symptoms so my PCP wanted to r/o any serious causes. However, he said that my mri report said no significant findings other than a “prominent pituitary gland” and didn’t have much to say as to what would cause it, after seeing my concern he offered an mri follow up in 6 months to see if there are any changes. Is it normal to have a “prominent pituitary gland” should I request a second opinion? What are the odds that a tumor or something serious was missed with an mri?

5 weeks ago I tripped, fell face first and hit my cheek bone on the edge of a counter, fell backwards and hit the back of my head on a hardwood floor. Went to the ER, had CT scans, and steri-strips put over the gash. Diagnosed with a mild concussion because I pass out. 2 days later, went to my PCP s PA. She said just ride it out, don t do anything that aggravates the symptoms, especially screens and call if no improvement in 2 wks. 2 wks. later went to a DO who basically expounded on the PA s recommendations. I have a follow up with the DO in 4 days. I followed doctors orders, but I still have a constant headache with pain ranging from 5 with flairs up to a 9. If I drive, I start to see double after driving about 15 mins. and/or a head pain flair. Other recurring symptoms: severe eye strain pain, problems finding words and completing sentences, light headedness, delay in processing thoughts. All that to ask... Should I go to my appt. in 4 days with the DO? (He specializes in pain management). Or, should I see a neurologist?

Hello Sir/Maa m, My mother got pain over face and gradually a marks starts appear from forehead to nose . Then we move for a doctor checkup where they said that it is harpies. Since its swallowing is near by right eye so her eye is not opening. In addition to this she is feeling pain in right part of head. Doctors had given medicine ans saying it will continue to around 6 months. After that if pain continues in head the they will refer to any neurologist . Just wanted to know that we should follow in this way or must took another opinion. Thanks in advance for your reply.

Started with signs of amnesia, mostly short term. About 2 years passed but behavioral changes were seen by family members. Could drive well, do coding well, but was not focusing on what was according to my plans. MRI showed swelling in brain. So,treatment with Acyclovir was done[Intravenous] for about 8 days and tablets for 5 days. No virus was found. Blood serum and water from spinal chord was sent to Barcelona. Only antibodies were found. EEG was OK. So was full body pet scan I am, as per my neurologist, taking Lamez 100 in morning, Valence 250 OD at noon, Libotryp and Lamez 50 in the evening. All seems well but once perhaps every day, for about 5 minutes, the environment looks a bit different. Especially at about 4 PM, sometimes later. I am well educated with high intelligence, 54+ years old. What can be my problem?
