Venous angioma left temporal lobe. Being on the computer gives me bad headaches, so does bright lighting in stores. Epilepsy? Also have fasciculations

Venous angioma left temporal lobe. Being on the computer gives me bad headaches, so does bright lighting in stores. Epilepsy? Also have fasciculations

Analyzing this:: Venous angiomas are usually benign congenital vascular variations, and typically cause little or no pathology. Unless you are experiencing episodes of altered consciousness, you do not have epilepsy. Rather, i would suspect migraine, and suggest a visit to a neurologist for further diagnostic confirmation and treatment. ...Read more

Vasculitis?: Vasculitis in the brain is a serious condition. Sle is a possible cause, but there are other causes. Mri is useful for structural defects but may not be useful in conditions like this. A negative MRI does not rule out vasculitis and does not rule out serious disease. ...Read more

Wouldn't brain inflamm.Show on brainmri? My MRI normal.I get frequent debilitating lightheadedness&headaches. Prednisone 10mg/day resolves it. Have lupus.Neg neuro exam

Not necessarily.: Headaches are generally not a component of lupus unless they are secondary to high blood pressure. A normal MRI makes brain involvement in lupus less likely but does not completely rule it out. Evaluation of the spinal fluid is a better test if your rheumatologist thinks it is necessary. ...Read more

What can brain lesion and white matter changes mean in Sjögren's and lupus.numbness,confusion,tremor,headache,off balance,weakness,brain fog,brainzaps?

See your neurologist: Without looking at your actual brain scan, it's impossible to tell with certainty the cause or significance of an abnormality. Lupus cerebritis can put white spots on the brain. More importantly, how are lupus and Sjogren's affecting your daily life? The key is improving your quality of life, not treating the appearance of your brain scan. Good luck! ...Read more
