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.

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

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

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

Possible causes of ear pressure, tinnitus, facial numbness around ear to cheekbone, clear fluid on exam, normal MRI of brain and also C-spine.

Possible causes of ear pressure, tinnitus, facial numbness around ear to cheekbone, clear fluid on exam, normal MRI of brain and also C-spine.

Mastoiditis: You may have had an inflammation in the area of your inner and middle ear. You may also have affected your mastoid which is in this area. Extensive inflammation in this area could cause irritation of the ear and facial nerves causing your symptoms. You need evaluation by both an ENT and neurologist. ...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

Well, it sounds like: you have had a good evaluation already. The most serious thing, a brain tumor, has apparently been excluded. I know it is VERY anxiety producing to not have a concrete explanation for your symptoms. Unfortunately, to your doctor's frustration as well as your own, this is sometimes the case. More often than not, in these situations, the symptoms resolve on their own...how long is another story:( ...Read more

You are still too : Young to be concerned about serious medical conditions. Dizziness is a very common complaint among our patients and oftentimes they are benign and not serious. Yours may be from anxiety, panic attacks, drop in blood pressure with sudden standing up or head turning, inner ear problem, sleep deprivation, medication side effect etc.If all work up are negative, then say to yourself, i'm not dying yet. ...Read more

Does a normal MRI on the brain with contrast rule out serious neurological causes of my constant, severe vertigo/dizzy episodes?

Does a normal MRI on the brain with contrast rule out serious neurological causes of my constant, severe vertigo/dizzy episodes?

It depends: how the MRI was performed. If it was tailored for that purpose, with special techniques to evaluate the regions often involved with vertigo etc..., then it would rule out most inflammatory or neoplastic causes. ...Read more

Very mild diplegia in an 11 months old with normal brain MRI, lab tests, improving with physio, what is the cause?

Injury to motor cntr: This generally represents an injury to the motor cortex either prior to,during or after delivery.It is more common in premature infants who have delicate blood vessels in the brain.It could involve a period of poor oxygenation or poor blood flow to the motor cortex of the brain devoted to the lower extremities. The event may be so mild that no symptoms ever surface at the time of the event. ...Read more

Is it possible to have an unremarkable normal brain MRI for an infant that endured a brain trauma? If it's normal does it rule out brain damage?

Is it possible to have an unremarkable normal brain MRI for an infant that endured a brain trauma? If it's normal does it rule out brain damage?

Yes and No: First question a definite YES....not only infant...ANYONE....people suffer traumatic brain injuries all the time clinically but have normal MRI's and certainly it is also true that a normal MRI does not rule out brain injury since we cannot see all the possible ways a brain can be injured using MRI. There are newer sequence acquisitions that are getting around that problem though but not right now ...Read more
