Hey! I saw your posts about pineal cysts, and I was diagnosed with a 9mm cyst about 3 years ago--my symptom was a seizure. Recently, I have been falling and having a bit of dizziness. I have an appointment with a neurologist, but I am quite frightened. Are there any questions that I should ask my neurologist, or details that I should not fail to give to her?
Your information and advice on pineal cysts was very informative and useful. My 18 year old daughter was just told she has one on her brain and was given a second MRI with contrast this time. I will use your information when moving forward. Thank you
Hi My 19 year old daughter has been diagnosed with a pineal cyst that is only 4 mm big ( although we are having a repeat MRI with gadolinium). However she displays all the symptoms of having a bigger cyst i.e. headache at the front of her head every morning; nausea after she eats; fatigue;a "numb spot" on one of her legs;mood swings. She has been diagnosed with anxiety and also has polycystic ovaries and acute acne ( now under control as she has been on metformin and Yasmin since age 14). Since age 7 she has had numerous black-out episodes. What do you think?
