My 12 years old son has adhd. One year ago he was diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst. Now he has severe headaches and lost vision in his right eye. I would like to know if this is related to the arachnoid cyst.

Location & size of : The arachnoid cyst on current MRI compared to prior MRI or ct scan determines likelihood of its causing headache & vision loss. While some pediatric neurosurgeons dismiss the possibility, others like dr. Benjamin warf at boston children's hospital, assess each case & perform minimally-invasive endoscopic surgery to divert fluid from an arachnoid cyst if needed.

Concerned: mixing several types of antidepressants with TCA ( nortriptalime) has potential for some serous side effects. If pain and headache started soon after you took new medicine I would stop it and see a doctor or ER. Make sure to bring all of your meds so they can check for interactions. ...Read more

13 yr old boy my 13 yrd old son has been having headache issues along with eye rolling, and ocassional clearing his throat noise.Has been to doctor, nuero, psych, recently diagnosed with mood disorder and low vitamin d.The headaches and eye rolling has me

Other : Other diagnoses include a chronic motor tic disorder and tourette's syndrome. If the eye rolling can be suppressed that would be a sign of a motor tic and if it can't be suppressed or involves loss of consciousness i would be concerned about a seizure. But most likely, a chronic motor tic disorder and possibly tourette's syndrome. The constellation of throat clearing, noises, and eye rolling would make me concerned about tourette's. ...Read more

My 16 year old son had blind spots and a severe headache today. Tylenol didn't seem to help.

My 16 year old son had blind spots and a severe headache today. Tylenol didn't seem to help.

Migraine: May be the reason. Often blind spots precede the headache...Then the headache. Pounding, worse light or sound; better laying in a dark room, cool rag on head. Try ibuprofen.. If it is not getting better it may be helpful to go to the emergency department. Acupuncture can help a lot as can craniosacral therapy...I have seen headaches disappear on the table with those modalities. ...Read more

My 3 yrs old son had a lumbar puncture on friday, yesterday he started to feel a terrible headache,  is zs normal? Wt is z reason, how long it wl last

Lumbar punctures: After a lumbar puncture it is not uncommon to have a headache. If the headache responds to common meds like tylenol or Ibuprofen i would not worry. Also if it lasts several days this may be due to a small leak around the puncture and can be remedied by the doctor who did the lumbar puncture. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

I've had headaches for 4 months now and severe pain on right side radiating to right eye which is drooping, what is happening?

Danger: The eyelid drooping is concerning for a partial cranial nerve palsy. You need an eye exam asap to find out what's going on. Sometimes we need to do head imaging and other tests to determine the cause. You need to have your pupils checked out soon as well. Could be an aneurysm. ...Read more
