I have a 8 mm calcification on the right frontal lobe of my brain. Can that cause issues with word finding, brainfog and give intermittent headaches?

I have a 8 mm calcification on the right frontal lobe of my brain. Can that cause issues with word finding, brainfog and give intermittent headaches?

Most would not cause headaches, and would be unlikely to cause "brain fog" or word finding troubles unless it is causing seizures. Medications are probably the most common cause of the symptoms you mention. ...Read more
