Is there a link between schizophrenia and a cavernous hemangioma
Can a cavernous hemangioma in the sub-ependymal region of the left frontal horn of my brain cause schizophrenia like symptoms? The cavernous hemangioma was first found back in 2000 when my whole right arm went numb for about 2-3 hours in a lecture. I also fainted that evening. Schizophrenic symptoms became apparent soon after but were ignored until it got worse, with a diagnoses being made in 2005. I am experiencing trouble with short term memory, a fogginess in my thoughts regular bouts of pins and needles / numbness, voices, delusions of being psychic, visions of hurting myself and others, isolation, paranoia and trouble taking care of myself. Is there a link and which symptoms relate to what?
