When body parts start to "fall asleep" due to sitting or laying in certain positions, how does this affect oxygen/blood flow to brain and body?

When body parts start to "fall asleep" due to sitting or laying in certain positions, how does this affect oxygen/blood flow to brain and body?

It doesn't: What you're describing is usually due to nerve compression. Certainly brain blood flow is completely unaffected by anything that doesn't affect blood flow in the arteries leading directly to the brain. ...Read more

My dad fall and have a blood in the brain, he doesn't need  a surgery, he have amnesia and hallucination. How can I help him?

Watch him.: Make sure the neurologist follows the patient with imaging studies ( ct or mri). He/she may order medicines for hallucinations . Amnesia may improve by itself or stayed the same. There are drugs for hallucinations. Just be supportive taking pt to appointments and reminding him what he has to do. Read about falling precautions . He might need institutionalization if difficult to handle. ...Read more

I lose my balance, fall, feel light-headed and sometimes faint. Had a heart MRI, brain MRI, blood tests and all came back normal.What's up?

Balance: Falling is a concern because it can lead to injury. If lots of tests do not show the reason, it may be a medication you use. Side effects of some medications include imbalance, and that would not show up on any tests. There are other possible causes that will not show up on MRI also. You should consider a movement disorder neurologist, as they also have experience with many balance disorders. ...Read more

Dr say 5-10% chance of brain bleed from blood thinner meds is high risk? Mom has blood clots from fall in brain and DVT 1 dr says meds, 1, 1 not sure

Dr say 5-10% chance of brain bleed from blood thinner meds is high risk? Mom has blood clots from fall in brain and DVT 1 dr says meds, 1, 1 not sure

Filter: It does appear that anticoagulant therapy would be risky in this situation. An alternative is to insert an IVC filter to prevent the blood clot from traveling from the leg to the lungs. Of course the attending physicians ,who know all the findings, are best qualified to give advice in this case. ...Read more

I have had a lot of head injuries in the past year and and fine now should I worry about blood on the brain? meaning concussion not knock out

No: It is important to continue to follow up with your physician for serial neurological examinations. Bleeding on the brain (stroke/hemorrhage/hematoma) would be indicated by noticeably worsening neurological symptoms (vision change, focal weakness or sensory loss etc), nausea or worsening headache. If you continue to feel well, then bleeding would not be suspected. ...Read more

If you had a concussion and a little blood on the brain that they thought would desolve or go away on its own but showed up on a MRI 3weeks lat then?

If you had a concussion and a little blood on the brain that they thought would desolve or go away on  its own but showed up on a MRI 3weeks lat then?

MR is very sensitive: Mri is very sensitive in detecting blood products. It is even capable of staging the age of the bleed as the imaging characteristics of blood on MRI are variable and change with the age of the blood. So as long as your hematoma is evolving in expected fashion (based on mri) and have not changed in size it is ok. Hemosiderin (blood break down product) can be detected on MRI years after the bleed. ...Read more
