Disequilibrium x1 week - only sometimes when walking. Feel off balance. Normal MRI of brain 6 months ago. So scared this is a brain tumor? 27/F.

Consider other cause: Since you had an MRI of the brain 6 months ago, and it was normal, you should not think of brain tumor as the cause here. Other causes are more likely and more common. These could be medicine side effects, changes in the sensation of the feet, changes in the inner ear sensation of movement, or changes with your strength. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Is it possible to have a normal MRI of brain (without contrast), but still have a clot or clots in small/medium blood vessels of brain?

Is it possible to have a normal MRI of brain (without contrast), but still have a clot or clots in small/medium blood vessels of brain?

POSSIBLE: Depending on resolution of mri, and thickness of cuts, is possible to miss small stroke, and not visualize minimal pathology, but a clinical exam by a neurologist should be able to correlate a potential stroke if exam is consistent, regardless. In some cases, a followup image is useful. ...Read more

I have clonus and hyperreflexia.Also have sjogren's, low B12 but normal MRI of brain and spine.Burning weak arms legs. Can clonus caused by sjogrens?

I have clonus and hyperreflexia.Also have sjogren's, low B12 but normal MRI of brain and spine.Burning weak arms legs.  Can clonus caused by sjogrens?

Sort this out: Both sjogren's and b-12 deficiencies can cause small fiber neuropathy, which can promote limb burning. The weakness could involve large fibres, but the clonus and hyperreflexia may be a sign of upper motor neuron problem within brain or neck, and thus might require imaging studies. A few tests can be useful, such as mri, and skin punch biopsy. Although sjogren's could mimic ms, and cause clonus. ...Read more
