I was searching for reasons why my Right Cerebral Hemisphere is smaller than my Left, Asymmetrical. I ran across a post "Can Anyone Help"? and Dr. Christopher R. Dewey DO of this site mentioned that a possible CSF leaks could cause this condition.
My MRI report mentions a mildly enlarged Posterior Horn of the Right Lateral Ventricle. It also mentions mild Right Parieto-Occipital volume loss in the setting of Traumatic Brain Injury may be present with a similar finding. I also have a retention Cyst in my Right Maxillary Sinus and a 2mm Flair on my Right Frontal Lobe. At the spot of the 2mm Flair is some sort of Matter that looks like it's coming out of my Frontal Sinus. This Matter is pressing against my Right Frontal Lobe and changing it's shape. When I was about 4 years old I had a Knife accidentally stuck into my Head, the Radiologist did not have this information when he looked at my MRI Images. The only information he was given was, Behavioral Changes and Traumatic Brain Injury. The location (above eye and below Brow Bone) of where the Knife entered is where this matter is going from my Right Frontal Sinus into my Cranial Cavity. I've also had many concussion (15) that I believe was caused by a personality change at a young age. I've been fearless for many many years and continue to be to this day. I believe I'm leaking CSF from my Right Sinus. I do get an Orthostatic Headache as the day goes on, Sinus Drainage on the Right side. I do believe I've had Frontal lobe damage that has effected my Executive Functions. I believe I'm where I am today because I've damaged my Executive Functions. I've driven my self into the ground. I'm having to use the Local Health Facility for low income people. The use PA's for seeing Patients. I think their doing their best, but I feel in this situation I need a specialist. If you would like to see my MRI Images, I would try and send them to you. What do you get personality wise if you have a Holistic thinker that has had an Executive Decision Dysfunction and does not make longer term goals and likes instant gratification and a youthful/childish manner to them. I hope this helps you help me. Thanks and take care.
