Simple partial seizures common idiopathic epelipsy? Brain tumor? No other symptoms. Passed neuro exam - reflexes, gait, strength, eye exam -perfectly.
Brain tumor: An MRI of the brain will determine if there is a brain tumor. Reducing or eliminating the seizures is the first priority. The anti-convulsant (anti-seizure) medication prescribed by your neurologist is specific to the seizure type. Discuss the side-effects of each medication to help you cope with seizures. ...Read more

Yes/ it depends.: If there is a tumor in the cerebellum, like cerebellar astrocytoma, coordination, etc. Might be affected, but if the tumor is in another place, like in the body of the cerebrum, it might have no effect. Many brain tumors cause their effects by mass or pressure effect, like on vision, seizures, headache, or herniation of brain effect. ...Read more
Yes, but not likely: Sometimes, the tumor may still not interfere with neurological function if slow growing, but they are more likely to present with symptoms like headache, personality change, or dementa, at least. There are no systemic features of malignancy, but there is mass effect on imaging and hemorrhage into the tumor can occur, giving stroke-like onset. A gait problem is a big sign. See your dr.

Can a person with no brain activity and on a breathing machine still move and have reflex ? My grandmother moves when I speak and touch her.
Yes: I assume that "no brain activity" means a flat EEG. EEG detects cortical activity, so the brainstem & spinal cord can still be active. There are many "primitive" CNS reflexes that a conscious brain suppresses that are DISinhibited when cortical function is lost. So yes, brainstem and spinal-cord reflexes that you never see in a conscious person can appear and become quite prominent. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My neurologist ruled out MS just by checkin reflexes, walking, etc. And a brain scan done 3 yrs ago. Im still worried. Should i take his word for it?

Might propose you seek a second opinion, and if again, not supportive of MS, hopefully will calm your fears. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
