    Extensive White Matter Disease

    I recently had an MRI with and without contrast. The results came back saying there was extensive white matter disease. T2 and Flair hyperintensities scattered in the white matter of both cerebral hemispheres, abnormal for patient's age and relatively severe. They said with the contrast there were no active lesions which ruled out active MS. But is this something they need to keep testing to find out what it is? Is there any cure for this?

    Second opinion? Ideas on what this could be?

    4 months I have had lack of sensation on the ride side of my face on forehead, temple, and upper cheek. This problem first began with headaches which then turned into numbness of my entire right side of scalp, right nostril, forehead, and temple. However, these past 3 months the headaches have left and the numbness is now only in my right forehead, temple and upper cheek. I have had a brain CT scan, an lumbar and cervical mri with contrast, and blood work-complete panel with thyroid and vitamin levels....

I cant fix it & I feel like I’m losing him. Last year we moved from the only place he called home to Waynesboro pa.

    6 ER Visits, one nerve block, and still no answers

    After 6 ER visists, one nerve block, and one night stay in the hospital my husband is still very ill.

CT was negative, MRI with out contrast did not show anything. The neurologist does not care that my husband symptoms are getting worse and just treats it like a migraine. He has not even looked at....

    Help-160+ "head rushes" or "brain zaps" everyday!

    Hi Folks – I’m a 49 year old male and starting in May this year, I started experiencing some very weird “head rushes” or “head zaps” as I have seen other folks make reference to. I’m now 4 months in and they are continuing - getting worse and more frequent. I actually know exactly when I had the first one – I was on holidays and departing the hotel and I got this head rush that was very sharp and lasted only a few seconds. It felt like someone stuck a needle in my brain full of adrenaline. I could....

    Hemiparesis Full Left Side w/Clear MRI and CT

    Thought I was having a stroke due to paralysis of my left side, arm, leg, trunk and neck with partial dullness to my face but had full facial movement. Rushed to the ER and admitted with TIA (which was later dismissed, an EMG/NCV is scheduled) MRI and CT was clear. Had been having headaches off an on for a few weeks (and a couple years), no migraine and no headache the day of the "event". Joint pain along with swelling in my left first finger and sometimes left thumb for about 6 months....
