I have been experiencing for the past 2 years off and on for brief 2 to 3 week periods and now for the past 3 months straight the following: 1)world tilts and sometimes just disappears with me than on the floor 2) intense zapping electrical feeling in head most all the time now 3) Intense headache that never eases 4) wobbly most of the time, cannot keep balance turning corners, sitting, standing 5) slurred speech began week and half ago 6) brain foggy, cannot concentrate, cannot recall things, remember places, people, like a wall is between me and the memory of things 7) cannot communicate my thoughts into words correctly all the time 8) extreme fatigue, extreme muscle pain/soreness, weakness, sudden shakes similar to electrical current going thru my limbs or parts of body 9) I seem slow to respond to my surroundings, like I cannot quite grasp what I am to do at that time for a minute or two 10) insomnia 11)nautious all the time 12) New symptom last week or so, cannot hold bladder/bowels sometimes and I do not realize it is happening for a few minutes, almost like I am having lag in my brain
I have had a gambit of tests, EEG/EKG, halter heart monitor, blood tests and now an MRI. All the tests are coming back normal.. I am crying a lot, due to loss of ability to function, work, drive, dress normally, walk normally, I am losing control of myself and I am always in control of everything.
MRI shows everything is normal I think.. except for a few things below.. I do not understand what these mean really and if this is causing my problems.
1. Left atrial trigone posterior parietal region venous angioma;
otherwise, the brain exhibits an unremarkable nonenhanced and enhanced
2. Relatively extensive paranasal sinus disease
MRI of the brain without and with contrast.
Multiplanar/multisequence imaging of the brain was performed without
and with intravenous contrast.
New onset severe headache.
There is no cortical mass or mass effect. There is mild cortical
atrophy. There is a cavum septum as an incidental finding. There is no
evidence of hydrocephalus. No cortical or deep gray matter infarct is
evident. There is a somewhat prominent draining vein radiating from
the region of the left parietal atrial trigone region white matter.
Appears to have a small caput medusa. No arterial contributor is
evident. There are no suspicious foci of periventricular or
subcortical white matter signal prolongation. No diffusion weighted
abnormality is evident. The cerebellum and brainstem exhibit a normal
nonenhanced and enhanced MRI appearance. No abnormal enhancement is
evident. There are no abnormal extra-axial masses or fluid
collections. The pituitary gland and pineal gland appear normal. There
is no obvious ocular region abnormality. There is no obvious brain
anomaly. Flow-voids are identified in the basilar artery and both
internal carotid arteries. The left maxillary sinus exhibits moderate
mucosal thickening along with fluid. It is almost completely
opacified. There is moderate to marked right maxillary sinus mucosal
thickening. There is ethmoid sinus mucosal thickening. There is a
trace amount of fluid within the right sphenoid sinus. The patient
appears to have medial wall antrostomy defects along with questionable
postsurgical changes sphenoid sinuses.
