Mri Scans Eeg Electroencephalogram
I have severe sudden-onset migraines that present with multiple symptoms. Had normal mri/eeg. Could a pet scan be helpful? I know something is wrong.
Probable not...: Pet scan is a very sensitive and pretty specific exam that detects cells that have an unusually high metabolic rate, such as cancer cells that are rapidly dividing, or areas of active inflammation. Most has, especially "migraine" type, are not due to cancer or infection, instead they result from alterations in blood flow. The very rare ha caused by a brain tumor would be easily detected by mri. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more

What can I expect from my first appointment for a diagnose of multiple scelrosis? I've had a spinal tap, CT scan, and MRI. Haven't had a EEG yet
Enough workup: Hi. Once your diagnosis is established (and it sounds like it is), your neurologist will discuss things like treatment options, lifestyle factors, prognosis variables, follow up testing and management, acute flare-ups, etc. Good luck! ...Read more
What kind of headache is unstoppable and makes standing up unbearable? I've had 2 MRI's and a CT scan. They were normal. My eeg was slightly abnormal.
You have a: postural headache. Your workup is nearly complete, but has a lumbar puncture (aka spinal tap) been done yet? Without fever, altered mental status or meningeal stiffness it is not likely to be meningitis. If you have postural headache, that probably means you are dehydrated or volume low. Take in 3-4 L of fluid daily. ...Read more

Been having headaches migraines most of my life I've had MRI, CT scan EEG and I was always told I had maxillary sinusitis disease what is it?
It's migraines: The maxillary sinuses are air spaces in your cheekbones. Mild chronic sinusitis is common (it's not true that all Texans got fleas, but they all do got sinusitis). All those dopey people out there who say they got "sinus" headaches - 99.9% of them don't. Most sinus disease causes no pain at all. Of course all your tests are normal. You have migraines & you also have sinusitis. Totally unrelated. ...Read more
I have been experiencing vertigo for four months now had MRI CT scan they found a tumor behind my eyes now going for an EEG can vertigo have anything?
I get dizzy every day since I gave birth 4 months ago. I had a CT scan, MRI, EEG, blood work done with normal results. What could it be?
Suggestions: Your testing appears to rule out central causes of dizziness in brain, and systemic causes due to anemias, or bodily disorders, BUT does NOT exclude inner ear pathology, which should be evaluated. See an otolaryngologist and get appropriate testing, as inner ear pathology can be treated with vestibular rehabilitation by a skilled physical therapist. ...Read more
Had CT scan MRI both of brain, neurological exam, EEG and evoked potential test all negative 1 year ago. Should i still worry about a brain tumour?
Probably not: Given that your exams were negative a year ago, it is unlikely that you would have a brain tumor if your symptoms have not changed. However, consider seeing your doctor if you are having any worsening or new symptoms and he or she will determine if it is appropriate to repeat any of the exams. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
