The Chiari malformation is a broad label covering this defect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chronic head & back pain 10 months after brain surgery (removed malformation causing epilepsy in the left temporal lobe) and spinal tap. Why?
I have chronic severe ear infection w/csf leak since brain decompression for chiari malformation. Could inner ear & ear bones be malformed also?
Unlikely: Unless your inner ear was involved in the surgery or you were born with inner ear or ear bone malformations, the inner ear and ear bones were likely unaffected from surgery. A suboccipital decompression typically does not affect the inner ear or ear bones. I would consult your otologist for a more precise answer. ...Read more

Check EEG: Right frontal AVMs can produce peduncular hallucinations due to seizures that may worsen with Geodon (ziprasidone) (which lowers the seizure threshold) Methylphenidate also lowers the seizure threshold. (as does ECT) Paranoia may respond to seizure meds if due to sub clinical seizures. (Interictal seizure activity may be difficult to see on the EEG if the frontal lobe lesion is near the under surface. ...Read more

I took escitalopram 5mg for three days, had bad side effects: headaches, eye disturbances, weird thoughts. I have been off the medicine for almost two months, questions is has this medicine altered or damaged my brain, eyes? I have dry eyes now.
Not likely.: Medications like escitalopram, a cousin to citalopram (Celexa) can cause weird symptoms both when you start it & when you d/c it. Your symptoms are particularly unusual but, if they were caused by this med, they will go away. However, please contact your doctor. You may need a different type of anti-depressant OR those symptoms may be totally unrelated to it. Best wishes. Dr. Anne ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
