Age 23. Coma patient. Diffused axonal injury. Intraventricular hemmorhage. Bleeding in frontal lobe. Chances of survival? Any possible impairment?
Not good : Sorry about this one, but there will be a suboptimal outcome at best. Survival may be issue, talk to your doctors, and perhaps an eeg can guide decisions, but hard to predict outcome of comas. Sounds like a profound traumatic event, and since young and severe, have a family conference with the treatment team, and get all your questions answered. ...Read more

CT Brain shows mass prepontine cistern CPA meningioma. Symptoms consistent with diagnosis. MRI contrast show no lesion. Symptoms persist! Now what?
Very strange: Not certain what to make of the disparity between the CT scan and the MRI. In some cases, a lesion is so small that it is missed by the artifact created by the thickness of the MRI slices. I would ask your doctor if an MRI of the brainstem with "thin slices" might be reasonable to confirm/refute the CT--with and without contrast. Take care and stay healthy! ...Read more

Here are some...: As alluded in another Q you posted, bleeding into the tissue like around prostate as what you have worried about, if it was mild & stopped, pain from expected healing and inflammation would intensify for 1-2 days and then settle down in 3-5 days, and take weeks and even months to resolve; but the eventual outcome may widely vary reflecting personal unique healing ability, degree of bleeding, or... ...Read more

The mother may not have any symptoms (except painless vaginal bleeding in case of ruptured vasa previa) but the fetus can rapidly exsanguinate and die if this dire complication occurs. Rare intracranial hemorrhage is seen in the fetal life; this can be lethal or neurologically devastating, although mild cases can even go unnoticed. ...Read more

The most dramatic thing is the bright red blood which can spread. Some sense a little fullness and slight blur. Pain is rare. Resolution is the rule and no treatment is required. ...Read more
I'm on meds but i really think its more serious i think its hemorrhagic cystitis because of my symptoms , can this be treated?
Meds for what?: Hemorrhagic cystitis can be due to either bacterial or viral infection of bladder. Some utis are associated with blood in urine ; usually not serious. Blood in urine (hematuria) can be a side effect of medication. However, without UTI needs to be investigated to rule out malignancy. Hemorrhagic cystitis responds to appropriate antibiotics just like non-hemorrhagic cystitis ; thus not very serious. ...Read more
It's possible: Aphasia (inability to speak or understand speech) is caused by damage (ischemia or hemorrhage- bleeding) to certain parts of the brain (usually on the left brain for right handed patients) that control speaking and understanding speech.

I have heavy bleeding and I have endometriosis. I was symptom free fo about 2yrs but the pain and heavy bleeding is back. concerned that I have cysts.
Endometriosis: Endometrial tissue can invade the uterine muscle, and cause difficulty in effective uterine contraction, so bleeding is much heavier, and with clots on occasion. This is called "adenomyosis", and can be very painful as well. Oral bcp's (if there are no contraindications) will stop ovarian production and control both endometriosis of the abdomen and the uterus. ...Read more
Varies: The symptoms may vary depending on the type of bleed. The most dramatic are bleeds from aneurysms in which the classic symptom is the sudden severe "worst headache of one's life". These may be coma producing. The intracerebral hemorrhage or hemorrhagic stroke frequently presents with sudden onset of neurological deficits like weakness on one side, speech problems, or altered level of consciousness. ...Read more
Hi, I have splinter hemorrhages on both thumbs but have no other symptoms. Can this be endocarditis.
Possible - unlikely: Splinter hemorrhages can be a sign of endocarditis, although they will generally then appear with lots of other signs and symptoms.

In isolation, as you are describing, endocarditis sounds very unlikely but further evaluation may be worthwhile. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not necessarily.: We don't consider bleeding to be normal in pregnancy - but it can happen. I would be sure that you are not having a miscarriage or a tubal pregnancy. Your doctor may do a pregnancy test and a pelvic ultrasound to clarify what is going on here. These are not difficult to arrange, and would give you important information. Lgromko md. ...Read more
