Pressure in ears, head and stiffness in neck after doing a colon cleanse. CT scan of brain completely normal. Detox effects?
The road to health..: ...does NOT lead through your rectum. Colon cleansing can cause vomiting, electrolyte imbalance, dehydration, jaundice & kidney failure. It was discredited a century ago. It may sound appealing but there is NO scientific evidence for it. Claims that toxins in your GI tract cause health problems eg arthritis, allergies, asthma are nonsense. Be a wellness skeptic, not a wellness sucker. ...Read more
Hit in the back of the head with a foam dodgeball 12 hours ago. No loss of consciousness. No severe headache. Brain damage likely?
Not likely: Healthy 22 yr usually has a pretty hard-head. It has been 12 hours and you don't really have any concerning symptoms and so significant brain injury is highly highly unlikely. If u were 72 it would be a different story because of a possibility of a very slow bleed. So, just be careful playing sports/protect your head, otherwise you are lucky this episode. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Similar: Brain tumors can cause an increase in intracranial pressure but there are other things that can cause this. Increased intracranial pressure is just the pressure inside of the skull. This pressure can be increased by tumors but also by injury, bleeding, swelling and fluid blockages. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can my nerve irritation in head and lack of emotion be a syptom of neurological based behavior after hitting my head ?
Head injury: Head injuries, even those thought of as "mild" can lead to cognitive (thinking) problems, emotional changes etc. Headache is common, of various types as well. You need to see your doctor as soon as possible and likely a neurologist. If you had the MRI and it is normal, it is reassuring, but your symptoms could certainly be the head injury. There is treatment, depending on specific diagnosis. ...Read more
Can you have bleeding in the brain 28 hrs after a minor hit on sides of head and no apparent signs of concussion besides headache/pressure in temples?
Injury to head : Some of the blood vessels speclly in the temples in our heads are very close to the skull Therefore susceptible to minor trauma to the head. Persistent headaches, mental status changes, drowsiness are all worrisome signs.

70% brain damage, not in a single area, due to lack of oxygen (caused by asphyxia), what are the chances to awaken and regain full consciousness?
Unlikely: The extent of brain damage is not as important as the specific areas of the brain that are affected. So, if the pons or medulla were affected, you would be considered brain dead already. But, if you loose that much area, you will have significant mental status changes and impairments of motor function. This is not a good circumstance. ...Read more

Does a head injury cause floaters? I've had them since I was young and also had a head injury at the age of 8 (fell down flight of cement stairs).
Annoying: Floaters represent a consolidation of the normal "Jell-O like" material within the eye, called vitreous. When light passes into your eye, through the vitreous gel, the consolidations block the light and cast shadows on the retina. This is the essence of a floater. Very annoying. However, if found upon examination not to affect of the retina, then just annoying. ...Read more
Migraine with head shaking and tensing of the body combined with blurred vision and loss of balance upon standing. Is this a sign of another seizure?
Had a lot of head CTs (7-8) & CTAs (2) due to TIA / stroke symptoms over the years and injuries associated to illness. Scared of brain cancer.
Induced Ca unlikely: I worry more about history of "TIA/stroke" and "injury" in a 38 yo. Radiation risk for the listed studies is well under 1 in 500 or so and "brain cancer" is even less likely. MRI is a great test for the brain and vessels as there is no ionizing radiation, BUT you must be able to have the test. For example no metal shavings in your eye from an injury and no unstable implanted ferrous metal. ...Read more
