Brain Psyc Mental Confusion
My mother was recently diagnosed with two brain cysts located at the back of her brain. Size 7 cm. Could these cysts be causing mental confusion?
Probably not answer: Might suggest that the cysts could be benign and of arachnoid cyst origin, but cannot exclude an infection such as cysticercosis or even a new tumor presence. Mental confusion in older folks often due to medication reaction, but may be of alzheimer origin. In summary, have all of this directly evaluated by an expert neurologist, and maybe even get a neurosurgeon involved. So, get answers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was told I have ms, but I have a lot of pain , can that happen after several mris, and lab work i was told I have several markers for ms, ie: blurry vision, dizzy, increasing muscle weakness, mental confusion, MRI showed nerve white matter under attack,
Pain and MS: People with MS can experience pain symptoms directly related to their disease, or from muscle spasm/tightness, or to orthopedic problems related to weakness. Pain is not normally a hallmark of MS, many people with MS have no pain. Perhaps it is time to have a face to face visit with the doctor and review your treatment options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I sometimes headbang hard, i read that it can cause brain damage, I am passing through confusion maybe b/c am not getting out of home. Should i worry?

Please see a neurologist as soon as you can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could violently snappin my head back and forth to style my hair all my life cause head trauma or cause my brain fog/head sensations/confusion? I'm 19
No: The movements would have to very violent and rapid to cause any neurologic damage. Make sure your doctors rule out sleep apnea as a cause of your symptoms you list above, as this is frequently missed in young people. At the very least, a home o2 desaturation test should be run to rule this possibility out, followed by a home or lab sleep study if clinically indicated.I hope other docs chime in als. ...Read more

Brain fog occurs: The term "brain fog" is used in many different contexts but it has applicability when discussing things such as Lupus, Sjogren's and their treatments. Other metabolic parameters should also be checked such as thyroids, B12, folate, (folic acid) Vit. D and then there are interventions that can be employed.

But it has to be tapered slowly and carefully if a person has been on it for a long time or withdrawal can cause confusion, agitation, sleeplessness and seizures! The are other causes of confusion as well. See doc to sort out. ...Read more
My last question- if i had a MRI of my brain with the dye, would this rule out dementia? 19 male, have severe confusion/memory loss/depersonalization
You do not have : Dementia. It is possible that an MRI with die could find something else that is causing your symptoms, but it is impossible to have dementia of the alzheimer's type at your age. In fact it's highly unlikely that you would have dementia of any kind at your age. The fact that you have confusion, memory loss, and depersonalization, all make me wonder if you do not have some form of dissociative disorder secondary to trauma. You could also have that combination from temporal lobe epilepsy. Sleep apnea can cause cognitive deficits as well. Please see the finest neurologist available in your region for a thorough checkup. If nothing comes from that then see the finest psychiatrist in your region that you possibly can.Share with them some of the thoughts that i've shared with you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
