Spine evaluation: It sounds like you had imaging ordered by a specialist. I encourage you to follow up with a specialist in spine surgery for a full history and physical exam. Your physician will evaluate the spinal imaging you had performed and also evaluate you for conditions such as spinal stenosis and possible problems with cerebrospinal fluid circulation and your headaches and neurological symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

Mri (Definition)

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

Long term numbness on left side eyesight blurry. Been over a year now symptoms getting worse more numbness earache what could it be? Brain MRI clear

Need a long-term doc: Your condition sounds serious. You should establish care with a doctor who can follow your symptoms & guide you appropriately (perhaps whoever ordered the MRI?). Alternatively, use HealthTap Prime. Since the MRI, I assume, is negative, thoughts of a complicated Migraine and Temporal Arteritis come to mind. Other tests (mainly clinical exam) establish these conditions - won't show up on Radiology. ...Read more

See your doctor....: Not knowing your age or medical history makes answering question difficult. You should certainly return and see an ophthalmologist and relate to him/her your previous history. An ophthalmologist would be best able to find out what is going on with the eye at this time. The double vision a year ago could be related. Check it out. ...Read more

Went for MRI last year for tinnitus and found out I have arachnoid cyst and chiari malformation recently have worsening tinnitus blurry vision, why?

Went for MRI last year for tinnitus and found out I have arachnoid cyst and chiari malformation recently have worsening tinnitus blurry vision, why?

Blurred vision &,: Less commonly, tinnitus, can be symptoms of a Chiari Type I from the cerebellar tonsils' causing pressure on the brainstem &/or spinal cord or blocking flow of CSF. Arachnoid cysts may have no symptoms or may cause pressure on the parts of the brain they overlie, especially if there is an increase in size of the fluid-filled sac. Thorough medical & neurological re-evaluations are warranted. ...Read more

Monocular Diplopia, halos, and glare. Ghosting images, blurry far away. 3 eye doctors said eyes healthy, MRI said brain healthy. What could it be?

Monocular Diplopia, halos, and glare. Ghosting images, blurry far away. 3 eye doctors said eyes healthy, MRI said brain healthy. What could it be?

Monocular Diplopia: Monocular Diplopia is almost always due to something in that eye: cataract (PSC), irregular astigmatism (send us copy of your Pentacam), irregular nerve (send us copy of your nerve photos and HRT and HVF), and/or tear film abnormality (send us copy of your Lipiscan). Consult with us to help solve this issue. ...Read more

Talk to your doctor: You may want to see a neuro -ophthalmologist. Your symptoms are very concerning. It's possible to have normal exam and negative MRI and still have something wrong.

MRI (d/t HA) shows 3mm meningioma in left Interhemispheric falx. Recent pregnancy. HA incr. Frequency over past year with blurry vision and R arm/hand weakness. Suggested F/U?

Follow-up tests: Your doctor who ordered the brain MRI is your best guide for future follow up. Since you do a small lesion in your brain, this should be followed up with a repeat MRI at least once more within the next year. Then you will know if the Meningioma is growing in size or remaining static. ...Read more

MRI brain results, atrophy & ex vacuo dilated lateral ventricles. TBI 10yrs ago. Headache, nausea, blurry/double vision. Is it acquired Hydrocephalus?

Possibly: Ex vacuo is usually ventricular enlargement due to decreased cerebral tissue. Usually asymptomatic, your acquired hydrocephalus and its underlying mechanism of traumatic brain injury are likely related to your symptoms. Please speak with your health care provider about symptomatic treatment. ...Read more

I have been suffering with constant headache and pressure/pain behind my left eye and down my face, blurry vision and spaced out for nearly a year now. After a Mri scan they discovered a 2cm cyst on my left maxillary sinus. Could this be the cause?

I have been suffering with constant headache and pressure/pain behind my left eye and down my face, blurry vision and spaced out for nearly a year now. After a Mri scan they discovered a 2cm cyst on my left maxillary sinus. Could this be the cause?

Possibly: A cystic lesion in the sinus can alter and block the natural production and elimination of fluids in the sinus. This could increase pressure in the sinus. You should have an ENT doctor examine you to determine the relationship of the cyst and the discomfort you are experiencing. ...Read more

Have symptoms of MS (blurry vision, pain, fatigue, muscle weakness) but have normal evoked potentials. Brain MRI w/ white matter changes? Still be ms?

Have symptoms of MS (blurry vision, pain, fatigue, muscle weakness) but have normal evoked potentials. Brain MRI w/ white matter changes? Still be ms?

Recommend:: Your symptoms are nonspecific and could be due to many conditions. Mri lesions could be due to migraine or prior head injuries, and your doctor could describe whether the pattern is consistent with a specific cause. I no longer use evoked potentials to confirm ms, and rarely use for any reason. If things seem unclear, a lumbar puncture may be useful. Discuss all of this with neurologist. ...Read more

Did I maybe have a brain-stem stroke? Took pseudoephedrine, BP shot from 110/55 to 217/117, was vomiting, dizzy, blurry vision, migraine. MRI normal.

Did I maybe have a brain-stem stroke? Took pseudoephedrine, BP shot from 110/55 to 217/117, was vomiting, dizzy, blurry vision, migraine. MRI normal.

Adverse Effect: I think perhaps you were given a larger dose than needed or you have a hypersensitivity to this medication. Pseudoephedrine usually used just to decrease symptoms relating to a cold or flu. (Watery eyes, runny nose, stuffy head/sinuses, scratchy throat). Adverse effects of this OTC med is to raise BP, cause restlessness, tremor, insomnia, nervousness, to name a few. ...Read more

Neck pain, major headache, pain back of head, nausea, tachycardia, blurry vision. Had brain MRI which was clear. If not tumour what could it be?

See a neurologist: Did you get brain vessel imaging? There are many types of headaches, including migraines, cough, cluster, occipital neuralgia, muscle strain, etc. Keep a log of the timing, duration, severity, and location of your headaches. Also try to identify any headache "triggers" (stress, not sleeping/eating). Take this information to a neurologist. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/headache. Html ...Read more

Diagnosed w/ Vestibular neuritis on left ear, I got tinnitus, MRI of brain shows no issues. Since then right eye a bit blurry, is there a connection?

Diagnosed w/ Vestibular neuritis on left ear, I got tinnitus, MRI of brain shows no issues. Since then right eye a bit blurry, is there a connection?

Probably not: There is no direct connection between the vision of one eye and the ear (vestibular system), so it seems unlikely that there is a relationship. However, if you are still having some jumping of eyes (nystagmus) from the vestibular neuritis, you might note visual blurring, but in BOTH eyes, though you might perceive it as only one eye. If this is the case, this symptom will gradually resolve. ...Read more

I was told I have ms, but I have a lot of pain, can that happen after several mris, and lab work I was told I have several markers for ms, ie: blurry vision, dizzy, increasing muscle weakness, mental confusion, MRI showed nerve white matter under attack,

I was told I have ms, but I have a lot of pain, can that happen after several mris, and lab work I was told I have several markers for ms, ie: blurry vision, dizzy, increasing muscle weakness, mental confusion, MRI showed nerve white matter under attack,

Pain and MS: People with MS can experience pain symptoms directly related to their disease, or from muscle spasm/tightness, or to orthopedic problems related to weakness.

Pain is not normally a hallmark of MS, many people with MS have no pain.

Perhaps it is time to have a face to face visit with the doctor and review your treatment options. ...Read more
