Cerebral Cortex Damage Symptoms
Probably not : The exact cause of multiple sclerosis is not well understood. However, researchers have looked at a link between brain injury and ms. It is a very weak relationship. About 1 person in 5000 who has a brain injury may get ms, so i wouldn't worry too much about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Contralateral weakness can be present. Sensation is altered on the same side, and pts have trouble localizing motion in time and space. Extinction phenomena occur, position sensation can be lost, the affected limb may not be recognized or even thought to be part of another person. ...Read more
Depends on timing: Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS), a condition characterized by reversible vasoconstriction and sudden thunderclap headache, is often confused with cerebral vasculitis (CV). In general, CV is treated with steroids and cyclophosphamide (or rituximab). Discuss the diagnostic findings with your neurologist for further evaluation. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3002614/ ...Read more

No: The x ray radiation in a CT has no measurable or known effect on neural tissues. 1) dose is way too low and 2) nerves are relatively radioresistant since the cells don't reproduce very fast, if at all. There is a theoretical risk of cataracts and cancer years later, but this is incredibly small esp. for a single scan and controversial anyway. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually not: To call the seizure as a febrile seizure, the age of the child should be between 6 mo and 6 yrs, the seizure should be associated with the sudden raise of high temp, the sizure should be generalized and less than 15 mins, even if it is prolonged and it was purely a febrile seizure, it does not cause permanent brain injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Before we had the current DTaP vaccine in the mid 90's many kids had fever & an occasional one had a seizure (with fever). The only benefit of the vaccine hater activity was enabling the "clean up " of early vaccines to the point they are truly safe & effective. Over the years. vaccine haters claimed it as a cause of crib death, CP & now autism/brain injury. Over time each claim is refuted. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the differences between symptoms from permanent brain damage and symptoms from temporary brain damage?
Usually: Most people with demyelinating disease of the brain (ms) do experience any of a wide variety of neurologic symptoms (e.g., visual changes, numbness/tingling, weakness), these may be intermittent. There are certainly cases in which a person has convincing MRI findings of ms but has no objective clinical signs or symptoms, though even these people are likely to develop symptoms at some point. ...Read more
A few: A brain attack or stroke maybe from lack of blood flow(ischemic) or a bleed(either clot/embolism or aneurysm) in the brain(intraparenchemal). Both results in death of brain tissue. Other sources of hemorrhage can be in the surrounding tissues such as subdural(around the brain) or subarachnoid(around brain or spinal cord). ...Read more
Post-traumatic: Repetitive head trauma results in tissue changes quite similar to alzheimers but the lesions are closer to the brain surface. This was first noted in "punch drunk syndrome" in boxing. There is likely some affect on blood flow (ischemia), as one could conceive of a local type of bruising, but this not fully clarified. Regardless the nfl and nhl are both paying a lot of attention these days. ...Read more
Age 23. Coma patient. Diffused axonal injury. Intraventricular hemmorhage. Bleeding in frontal lobe. Chances of survival? Any possible impairment?
Not good : Sorry about this one, but there will be a suboptimal outcome at best. Survival may be issue, talk to your doctors, and perhaps an eeg can guide decisions, but hard to predict outcome of comas. Sounds like a profound traumatic event, and since young and severe, have a family conference with the treatment team, and get all your questions answered. ...Read more
Lumbar puncture: Lumbar punctures can cause headaches from low cerebrospinal fluid pressure but this is usually temporary. Brain damage is a rare complication related to a large mass or pressure in the brain that can cause brain contents to herniate into the spinal canal or against the brainstem. Vomiting and aspirating after a lumbar puncture could lead to pneumonia. ...Read more
