Hi, I am a 31 year old female. I have a subarachnoid cyst on the left frontal lobe of my brain. At age 9 I was hit by a van and had to have surgery to remove pieces of the skull out of the brain. Now I suffer from Complicated Miagrains, epilepsy and memory loss. I have been diagnosed with Encephalomalacia and it seems like my medical problems are getting worse, quite frequently the past several months.I went to the Er about 2 months ago and they said if the problem persists to have an MRI done. I again went to the ER three days ago for the same problem. Crushing miagrain on right side, seizures, weakness on right side, and passing out. Is this something I need to be alarmed about? I have a Neurologist but can't get in to see him for another six months. He has me on norco 10, dilantin 400 mg, daily, and miagrainal spray. where can I receive information about this condition? He doesn't look at my cat scans and tells me I am fine but I know i'm not. Something is wrong but I can't get any help. Is Encephalomalacia more cysts? more memory loss? What is going on? Is there a cure for it? What are the symptoms? I have done research on the net and can't find any helpful information. My brother has a cysts on his brain also, he's 9 months older then me and has had a mini stroke, my mother and grandfather ruptured aneurysms, and my uncle a massive stroke. I am scared and need as much information as possible on this condition. Please help someone if you can! God bless and thank you!!!
