Can A Cerebellum Stroke Cause Personality Change
Usually not, but....: Typical probs. Resulting from a cerebellar stroke include poor coordination of arm/legs, equilibrium/balance problems, ataxic gait, visual disorders. But well done studies have found that if the posterior part, or the vermis are damaged, there are complex neural pathways to prefrontal, temporal and parietal connections affected that can cause pers. Changes--cerebellar cognitive affective disorder. ...Read more
Personality Changes (Definition)
Personality change is a symptom in which a person's personality (the sum of his traits, emotions, behaviors, and thought patterns) has altered. Temporary changes can be due to fatigue, hormonal changes, drug abuse, medication side effects, etc ...Read more
Hard to say...:
Dopamine (DA) is not measured in clinical labs. It's extremely rapidly metabolized along a variety of pathways. Further, DA levels in blood bear little resemblance to DA activity in the brain - even less to the small brain regions and synapses where DA signaling is concentrated.
Though DA *might* be relevant, the symptoms you describe could have a very large number of non-DA causes. ...Read more

What do they mean by personality changes with concussions/brain injurys? Does that mean person who likes red now likes blue, or goes from art to sport
DEATH OF TISSUE: Stroke causes death to brain cells in the area of absent blood flow, and these losses can result in paralysis, numbness, loss of vision, compromised focus, memory, concentration, etc. Depending on the size and location, profound permanent problems requiring assistance and/or nursing care may be outcomes. ...Read more
Many causes: Hemorrhagic stroke can happen from severe elevation in blood pressure (most common), or from an ischemic stroke transforming into a hemorrhagic, or a subarachnoid hemorrhage from a ruptured aneurysm, or from an AVM (arteriovenous malformation), or a large cortical brain hemorrhage from an amyloid angiopathy (in elderly with dementia) etc etc ...Read more
My dad had a brain stroke and was treated but his creatinine is 2.17. .. doesn't decrease. Would you please advise what may be the cause.
Size vs location: The brain is a complicated organ in the sense that there are some highly specialized areas where a lot of function (speech, language, swallowing, breathing, movement, vision, eye movement). A very small stroke in one of these areas can have devastating effects whereas a larger stroke in other areas can be tolerated very well and with rehabilitation even be overcome to a surprising degree. ...Read more
Yes: Other causes include multiple sclerosis, infection (e.g., abscess), and tumors in the pituitary gland that press on the brain. Visual field defects can also be seen with diseases of the retina or optic nerves. Also late in the course of some neurodegenerative disorders such as alzheimer's disease higher centers for vision can be affected and visual deficits can be seen. ...Read more
Stroke: Hi, strokes are cause by a loss of oxygen to a part of the brain causing that part of the brain to die. There are 2 types of stroke; ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic is caused by blocking a blood vessel. Hemorrhage is caused by a vessel bleeding. Thus, the blood is diverted away from the brain and it dies. One can have bleeds without stroke, if the brains blood supply is not compromised. ...Read more
Probably not stroke: Multiple small areas of signal abnormality in the brain can result from many things. In older patients or patients with risk factors like high blood pressure or diabetes, these often do indicate previous strokes. This would be very uncommon in a 30 yo. Multiple "lesions" are usually nonspecific and can result from migraines, demyelinating disease (ms) or autoimmune conditions among other things. ...Read more
Recent MRI due to headaches discovered brain infarction. Could that be the cause of my headaches and is it possible to figure out when I had a stroke?
Not all strokes same: An MRI can tell a tremendous amount about a stroke, including approximately when it happened, the size, and the location. Many people have microvascular disease that leads to small strokes as they age, and they rarely have much significance. An acute stroke, on the other hand, is an emergency. Have a closer look at the MRI report and talk to your doctor about the details of the implications. ...Read more
Besides a brain tumur, bleed and stroke what else can show up on a MRI that causes severe headaches?
Other things: Here are a few others I can think of--hydrocephalus, brain infections, vascular malformations, congenital malformations (chiari, etc.), sinus problems, spinal fluid leak, fractures, sinus thrombosis, certain demyelinating processes, vasculitis, certain toxicities. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Can a vascular AVM in the brain cause brain cancer or any type of cancer or stroke down the line?
Cancer-no, Stroke-?: AVM's (artero-venous malformations) do not cause cancer. Whether or not they may cause a stroke, depends! The location, size, luck, and other risk factors all must be figured in. Lots of people have AVM's in their brains and elsewhere and never know they have them because they never cause problems. ...Read more
Can gram negative ecoli sepsis cause brain disorders years after the episode. If so ;what kind? I ended up with lesions and a stroke. Can this be?
Sure: Micro emboli of organism can lead to brain abcess and worse plus vasoconstrictors used to support blood prressure in sepsis can critcally constrict blood vessels leading to thing cerebral ischemia these these things can combine to cost limbs the brain is infinitely more sensitive to vascular interruptions than limbs. ...Read more

Will improve: Given time and rehab you will improve you can also talk to your neurologist for assistance and help ...Read more
Brainstem: Brain centers that control alignment of the eyes are located in the brainstem (lower part of the brain such as medulla, pons and midbrain). Damage to these areas can create a misalignment (or a skew) which can be defined as hypertropia. ...Read more
