Dad(52yrs)diagnosed w/cerebral vermian atrophy. Symptoms:uncoordinated movements, speech, swallowing difficulty(at times). Non-drinker. Is there a cure
Search for cause: The term "cerebral atrophy" is generic and does not explain why your dad is impaired. You truly need to have a full neurological evaluation, as the symptoms do raise concerns regarding many potential problems. Some of these issues could be associated with vitamin deficiencies, some from an inflammatory condition. Even might be due to a prion infection. Need to vigorously pursue. ...Read more

Not Enough Current!: Yes..if you are a flea.But to get from your skin through your skull past the cerebrospinal fluid deep into your brain would take a lot more than a little static spark.Of course then there's the topic of 'human spontaneous combustion.'but I'll leave you and Google for that.Now, static can screw-up other things,like electrical circuits, and some fine machinery,or the Hindenburg or a gas tank(BOOM!) ...Read more

Can Endolymphatic Hydrops cause 24/7 rocking/jerking dizziness instead of episodic spinning? Bilat Conductive hearing loss ECOG Left .36 Right .39
Sounds Good to me: I would guess that though you have 24/7 rocking/jerking dizziness that there are SPIKES of significant worsening of those symptoms....and that's where I would place your ACUTE EPISODES of Meniere's or whatever you'd like to call it. That's almost like my headache patients who have CONSTANT HEADACHES but there are episodes where it gets HORRIBLE....those can definitely be migraines! Make sense? ...Read more

Who knows!: So sorry about your son. All of his conditions you could think might cause a shorter life span for all sorts of reasons, but with good care one never knows. Accidents, poor nutrition ( because he doesn't eat well), progressive brain deterioration if repeated seizures, infections, general stress with its harmful physical effects, all could contribute to premature death. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Arachnoid cysts usually aren't the cause of problems, they're found when doing a scan because of the problem, but are usually not the cause of the problem. Removing the cyst wouldn't be expected to benefit the psych problems or change personality. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
