Is it possible that I have subarachnoid hemmorage? I've had these off and on headaches around the parietal and occipital lobes of my brain.

The occipital lobe: Is inside the brain. Perhaps you meant the occipital area (nape of neck), as that can happen and be bothersome. You rate it as 2-4/10, which isn't bad, and you might have a muscular contraction, or vascular issues that's causing this to occur. So, it's best to see your doctor, and have it evaluated, if it hasn't changed or improved by now. ...Read more

If there is enhancement, they have to be watched closely or biopsied to make certain it is not a tumor. ...Read more

Can gravity cease?: The answer to MY question is YES! No way-Yes, way! There's a calculable probability that a ball dropped to the floor ENOUGH TIMES will go UP on at least 1 trial. Unlikely you will live long enough to see it but it's not an IMPOSSIBILITY. Translate to hallucination- 24/7- same image (s), sequence, everything, for that long? Highly unlikely but then, there's gravity Has the patient had an EEG? ...Read more
