Calcium Deposits or small calcified meningiomas in brain
I have had migraines since my early teens (I am now 29). About 7 yrs ago I started having different types of headaches (the migraines didn't stop).. these were more like a horrible pressure in my head. At the time I had an CT scan that showed either calcium deposits or 2 small calcified tumors... the neurologist said this wouldn't be causing the pressure in my head and that same week I lost my insurance. Later I had another neurologist look at my films (which I still have) as a favor and he said I should have an MRI every 6 months (Ihaven't had one since because I have no insurance). Soon after this I started having horrible nose bleeds where blood would pour down my face for up to 45mins... the nose bleeds actually made me feel better, these have since stopped but I have other problems now like trouble judging distances... I get dizzy and lightheaded... can't focus... when I get the pressure in my head I get blurred vision (its like looking through fog or smoke) and my eyes look glassy... I have been trying to go to drs and hospitals again and no one seems to take me seriously... they tell me its just a headache or stress... I finally have a ct scan scheduled for a week from now... my question is if all they find this time are the calcium deposits... what if anything can be done? at this point I am actually hoping for a tumor... at least that is something a dr will take seriously and treat...can calcium deposits cause these types of problems? what other diseases could cause these symptoms?
