My 20 mth son shows seizure for 1ess than 10 seconds 1/2times/day.MRI told swelling in the temporal lobe and stroke in frontal lobe.Is it curable? Pls

Need further info: It is unclear what is meant by "swelling" in the temporal lobe as that could indicate several things and a previous stroke can certainly be the cause of seizures. Likelihood of curable is low but these seizures are often treatable as there are many effective anti-seizure medications available. Please see a pediatric neurologist or make a consult appointment with me for further guidance. ...Read more

Can you tell me the long term effects of a t.I.A. In the temporal lobe?

Can you tell me the long term effects of a t.I.A. In the temporal lobe?

Risk factors: If this was a true TIA, due to blood vessel obstruction or distant embolism, you are clearly at high risk for another TIA or even a full blown stroke. You do not indicate if your doctor provide medication, but at the least, you should be taking an anti platelet drug, or even a anticoagulant. The cause needs to be evaluated fully.

Once in a while i have a freezing sensation in my temporal lobe, and in lasts about a minute,is that serious?!

Once in a while i have a freezing sensation in my temporal lobe, and in lasts about a minute,is that serious?!

No you don't: You don't really explain what you mean by a "freezing" sensation. Temperature? Freezing of movement? Something else? Regardless, whatever you're feeling, it's NOT in your temporal lobe. The brain is where all sensation is perceived but it has no local sensory nerves. It can't sense intracranial temperature or touch or anything. You need to study harder if you want to pass the next quiz. ...Read more
