First seisure at 56'. Very high blood pressure on 4meds. Slow brain waves. Dr said no brain tumor?

First seisure at 56'. Very high blood pressure on 4meds.  Slow brain waves.    Dr said no brain tumor?

MRI?: You have not supplied enough data. It may be that your doctor has good reason to rule out a brain tumor, or it may be that more information should be obtained, likely from an MRI scan. Have a detailed conversation about this with your doctor. ...Read more

Can giving birth (pushing) cause a brain aneurysm or bleed on brain?

Can giving birth (pushing) cause a brain aneurysm or bleed on brain?

No: There has been no association between pushing and formation of brain aneurysms. There have been concerns of increased risks of pushing in patients with certain specific neurological conditions (shunts, strokes, etc). Patients with neurological conditions should ask their OB and neurologist about the safest mode of delivery. ...Read more

When after concussions do brain hemorrhage occur?

When after concussions do brain hemorrhage occur?

Not direct: There is not a direct correlation between concussions and brain hemorrhages. In people sustaining bruising or hemorrhage into the brain with a significant brain injury, the highest risk for expansion is generally within the first 24 to 48 hours. ...Read more

What brain test can pick up brain tumors?

What brain test can pick up brain tumors?

CT OR MRI: A ct scan of the head or an MRI of the brain can pick up brain tumors. An MRI is a more sensitive test but takes longer to do. ...Read more

Can subdural hematoma cause brain damage 3 years after it happened?

Can subdural hematoma cause brain damage 3 years after it happened?

Possible: Subdural hematomas can sometimes rebleed. If the new episode of bleeding is large enough it can cause pressure on the brain and new symptoms. ...Read more

Can throwing up cause brain hemorrhage?

Can throwing up cause brain hemorrhage?

Usually the reverse: A person with an expanding hemorrhage deep in the brain will first feel nauseated, then throw up, then maybe die of the hemorrhage. The family may think the person's hemorrhage was caused by throwing up. Occasionally a berry aneurysm ruptures during delivery of a baby, but the straining of common vomiting is much less and would be unlikely to rupture anything. If you have a loss, i'm sorry. ...Read more

Bleeding at lower brain stem?

Bleeding at lower brain stem?

Bad event: Brain stem hemorrhage is not great, as relatively small area with critical nerves and connections. Hard to control once started, and often pts left with chronic disability. I know this is not good news, but hopefully careful inpatient medical care will lead to survival and rehabilitation measures to restoration. ...Read more

Can subdural hematoma lead to brain dysfunction?

Can subdural hematoma lead to brain dysfunction?

Yes: The subdural hematoma if present for a long time and sufficiently large can compress the underlying brain leading to local ischemia and shift of the brain. This can lead to damage to the underlying structures. Even if it is evacuated, there can still be long-term sequelae--ie. Brain disabilities. ...Read more

Is chronic nose bleed, slurred speech, frequent headaches a sign of brain tumor?

Is chronic nose bleed, slurred speech, frequent headaches a sign of brain tumor?

Very Concerning!: When people have slurred speach it is always very important to have that evaluated right away. It becomes more worrisome when there is a headache involved. It sounds like a person with those symptoms should see their primary care md without delay! if the symptoms are sudden in onset, then that demands an er visit urgently. ...Read more

Can brain inflammation like encephalitis lead to a brain tumor later?

No: Inflammation of the brain is not a general precursor to brain tumors. Occasional brain tumors such as lymphomas, may present with an inflammatory picture. ...Read more

Can 2 minute heart stop cause brain damage ?

Possibly: Any time your heart stops pumping, the blood in your arteries and veins stops flowing. Therefore all of the organs are not getting the blood they need to function. The brain is a very sensitive organ and can get damaged if it is not receiving proper blood flow. There are ways to check the brain for such damage. Talk to your doctor about seeing a neurologist. ...Read more

Can a slow brain bleed show up days after an initial cat scanafter head injury?

Can a slow brain bleed show up days after an initial cat scanafter head injury?

Possible: Delayed expansion of hemorrhage after an initial head injury is not unusual. In addition, some may evolve a subacute to chronic blood collection (called a subdural hematoma) days to weeks after an initial injury. ...Read more

It happens that a rebleed occur after 10 years from brain aneurysm clipping ?

Yes: It depends on whether or not there was any residual neck of the aneurysm. Post-operative cerebral angiograms should be done to examine the details of the clipping. Furthermore, surveillance angiograms are often done to see if there are any changes or "outpouchings" particularly at the base of the aneurysm adjacent to the clip. ...Read more

Do brain tumors cause depression?

Some do, some don't: A lot depends on the location of the tumor, it's size, the swelling around it, which fiber tracks are blocked and chemicals emitted from the tumor, as well as the person's psychological reaction to having a brain tumor, family support, accurate and timely treatment, etc. ...Read more

Do ruptured Blood vessels from hemmoragic strokes ever heal on their own so bleeding stops?

Do ruptured Blood vessels from hemmoragic strokes ever heal on their own so bleeding stops?

Yes: if they didn't heal, all hemorrhagic strokes would be fatal. The problem is the portion of brain that is killed by the pressure created by the bleeding, and depending how much and where that is, there are differing degrees of damage from such strokes. ...Read more

Slight and transit brain injury?

Slight and transit brain injury?

Good question: The brain is very complex. Brief disruption can happen, and full recovery can occur. A transient ischemic event can happen. Concussion can happen. A seizure can happen. A migraine can happen. A psychotic break can happen. All can recover fully or leave deficits. A good neurologist can help determine cause and effect. ...Read more

Cause of death: subdural haematoma, fall exasperated by anticoagulants. Father fell - brain bleeding caused brain squashing = death Explain please?

Cause of death: subdural haematoma, fall exasperated by anticoagulants. Father fell - brain bleeding caused brain squashing = death  Explain please?

It pushes on brain: A subdural hematoma, as a result of a head injury, is a collection of blood between the covering of the brain and the surface of the brain. The bleeding after an injury fills the brain area very rapidly, compressing the brain with the pressure from the enlarging glob of blood (the hematoma). Our brains do not tolerate compression, which stops some of the normal brain functions, and then we die. ...Read more
