Temporal Lobe Headaches
Been suffering from frontal and temporal lobe headaches for the last 3 weeks, almost in constant pain. Been for physio which helps intermittently.?
Imaging Tests, Labs?:
A painful headache for 3 weeks needs to have a CT Scan done to rule out brain pathology. Have you had this done? Other problems such as neck arthritis can cause a headache. There is a reason for the pain
Has the doctor given you any oral medication to help with the headache?
A specialist in this area called a neurologist may be helpful. Primary care doctors in the US treat headaches as well ...Read more
Sir I fell headache for a while as my head is gonna bust at my temporal lobe and some times at occipital lobe please recommend some medicine or tips?
Is it normal for a right temporal lobe tumor the size of a golf ball to cause dizziness and bad headaches?
Yes, this person: Should be under the care of a neurologist or neurosurgeon. If not, get this person to an emergency room. ...Read more
I have a developmental venous anomaly left temporal lobe. Got the MRI for headache x10 days and fasciculations x7 months. Is the dva the cause?
Depends on where: The fasciculations are. You should discuss this with the neurologist who referred you for the testing. Based on your clinical exam they can see whether it correlates with the radiological findings. Best wishes for a happy new year. ...Read more
5 month continuous headache. Stays in top of head and moves to R&L temporal lobe. Mild pain just tired of it. And around back of ears. Any ideas?
Five months: Is a long time. It could be any number of things. You should see a doctor for this problem. ...Read more
Can developmental venous anomaly of left temporal lobe cause epilepsy? I think I have mild epilepsy (fasciculations, headaches, aura, migraines, etc)
Epilepsy: You should be evaluated by neurologist to determine if your vascular anomaly is causing your problem. ...Read more
Venous angioma left temporal lobe. Being on the computer gives me bad headaches, so does bright lighting in stores. Epilepsy? Also have fasciculations
Analyzing this:: Venous angiomas are usually benign congenital vascular variations, and typically cause little or no pathology. Unless you are experiencing episodes of altered consciousness, you do not have epilepsy. Rather, I would suspect migraine, and suggest a visit to a neurologist for further diagnostic confirmation and treatment. ...Read more
I got a nose bleed the other night after having a headache in the back of my eyes and a top my parietal lobe and down to the temporal lobe?
Nose bleed: An occasional nose bleed is not be concerned about. For good health: Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. ...Read more
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. Do you have a skilled neurologist?? ...Read more

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
Sometimes I feel freezing sensation in my temporal lobe, and by freezing I mean temperature, is that a problem?!!
Strange sensation: Its not your "temporal lobe" its just your temple. You cant feel your temporal lobe. You are experiencing a facial dysesthesia or neuralgia. You have not provided us with absolutely no information about yourself, not even your age let alone any medical history to allow us to offer you a relevant response. If you remain concerned please see your doctor or neurologist. ...Read more
Sylvian fissure: You might be thinking of the sylvian fissure, which separates the temporal lobe from the frontal lobe of the brain. The temporal lobe is part of the cerebrum, just like the frontal lobe is. ...Read more
EEG finding: I assume you received this as part of an EEG report. This is not specific but can relate to a localized difference within the functioning of that part of the brain. Sometimes those findings are associated with seizures, but not always. You should follow up with the ordering physician to have further discussions about the finding. ...Read more
Abnormal function: The term might refer to anatomical variation in one temporal lobe, but could also involve, epileptic activity due to focal pathology. Would urge full discussion with your neurologist, as this may correlate with your problems. ...Read more
Need more detail: One of the main questions I would ask is whether the tumor is in the brain or outside of the brain. Tumors that are outside of the bridge over 9, but they still have to be watched. If this is in fact the tumor growth, I don't agree that we should not worry about it. What's a doctor May mean is that it is not malignant, but still needs watched ...Read more
Followup studies: Your small lesion could be congenital, post-traumatic, or acquired, and management depends on what symptoms prompted discovery. Typically, if you have epilepsy or focal weakness, we would obtain followup mri's about every six months to make certain this was not enlarging. Would get visit to a neurosurgeon, and talk about future management. ...Read more
Hi. 27, male-diagnosed with dai grade3 (multiple petechial haemorhage in right temporal lobe)-not aware of his surroundings nw-80days over nw-recovery?
DIFFUSE AXONAL INJUR: Is a serious brain injury. One might never recover from it. The hemorrhage is just one example of the brain damage. There may be secondary atrophy. You should have extensive therapy and a neurologist followup. I assume you have these all scheduled. Imaging can be done with advanced MRI such as quantitative MRI imaging and also diffusion tensor imaging. I am hopeful your friend will improve. ...Read more
Advice: If you have episodes of altered consciousness, this needs to be fully explored and diagnosed. You will need a neurologist to work with. Schedule an appointment. In meantime, do not drive, operate power equipment, do activities at heights. ...Read more
Temporal lobe sz.: Intense emotions, medications/illicit substances/medical conditions, changes in intensity of perceptions such as sound/light/temperature, are few examples. ...Read more
Depends on severity: Seizures during brain surgery are rare due to the presence of anesthesia but if a seizure did occur during a surgery, the brain pressures could increase and hence be life threatening. Most neurosurgeons are properly trained to deal with the situation but a very large seizure during surgery could be life threatening. As your physician for more details. ...Read more
It depends: Temporal lobe epilepsy is an old term for a partial seizure that seems to come from a temporal lobe region of the brain. It can be simple, complex, or can secondarily generalize. Initially a good quality eeg and MRI will help to localize and characterize the process. Initial trial of medication is appropriate, and consideration of epilepsy surgery is appropriate. Some cases are very difficult. ...Read more

doctor wants to keep me for ten days under watch because of a temporal lobe injury. Is this routine?
Depends on severity: Some people may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (tinnitus, difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. Length of hospitalization is based on many factors including seizures, duration of blackout, coma, etc. Speak to a neurologist for discussion. Http://www. Webmd. Com/brain/post-concussion-syndrome ...Read more
Is it possible that I could become a vegetable if the surgeons make a mistake during the temporal lobe surgery?
Cured?: In the hands of an epilepsy specialized neurologist and a specialty trained neurosurgeon, it can be a well treated condition if the focus is truly in the medial temporal lobe and it can be resected. Only those specialists can tell you if the disease is treatable or possibly without symptoms- cured is the difficult word. ...Read more
If untreated maybe: Death risk far higher if seizure generalizes to grand mal, and occurs while at heights or driving. Also, something called sudep, which is death during sleep. But, if one takes appropriate anti-epileptic drugs and prevents the seizures, these episodes are rare, if ever, and may very well have a normal lifespan. ...Read more
Need more words: Simple and complex focal epilepsy are difficult to diagnose, ; represent 40% of all epilepsies. Presentation varies from small motor tics, unusual perceptual disturbances, time-distortion, derealization, panic-like sxs, compulsive behaviors, catatonic variants, atypical aggressive outbursts, obsessions, and much more. See a specialist in 1) epilepsy or 2) behavioral neurology ; neuropsych. ...Read more
Complex partial szs.: These previously were termed "temporal lobe epilepsy", and the temporal lobe is involved, especially in case of congenital or acquired, "mesial temporal sclerosis". So, in part, your seizures emanate there, and this could be a site of surgical intervention in some cases. We also are aware of more widespread provocation over the circuitry called the limbic area, so it may not be so anatomic. ...Read more
Primary and metastat: There are two types of primary brain tumor basically. Glioma are made of support cells of the brain and neuroma consisting of nerve cells. Both are found together in ganglioglioma which is a relatively rare tumor. Gliomas are more common. Metastatic tumors from breast cancer or ovarian cancer is more common in older age groups. Older patients may have a more aggressive and malignant form. Vascu. ...Read more
