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
Neurologist requested MRI due to severe headaches, migraines, numbness, etc. Nurse called, result is angioma "not serious". Could that be the cause?
Venous angiomas: Or developmental venous anomalies (DVAs), if that's what the nurse is referring to, are generally incidental findings and, in the vast majority of cases, of no clinical significance and requiring no treatment.

I have venous angioma, I take valparin 1 pill and eptoin 2 pills) every night. I had my last seizure before 8 years. Should I continue my medication?
RISK ANALYSIS: It is possible that you could be stable enough at this point to consider modifying your medication, but when tapering an epilepsy drug, there is risk of withdrawal seizure even when done properly. If you do wish to proceed, first make sure your physical exam is normal, and an eeg also normal, then slowly taper one drug only, with close doctor followup. Do over at least 3-4 month period. ...Read more

Hypoglycemia can also cause seizure occasionally- to avoid that eat small frequent meals of low glycemic index foods. ...Read more
