    Disorientated, confusedT

    2 months before, I headed a football from the middle of my head. I was near fainting after that as i wall already exhausted but I didn't. Then I felt okay. The next day at night, I had a simple seizure. Just trembling and change of taste and a small fever that disappeared overnight. I had diarrhoea and swollen lymph node in abdomen that healed after I went to a doctor who treated my condition as a viral gastritis. That day I also ate something from outside so maybe that was it. Then everything....

    Brain Aneurysm Mass Effect

    I know the symptoms of a brain aneurysm's mass effect (when it presses on a par of the brain) but what sort of pattern does it happen in? Is it continuous or does it come and go? Do certain symptoms not happen with others because they're in different parts of the brain? I've been having heavy health anxiety lately and haven't been able to get an MRI or see a neurologist. It started one day in class when I had pulsatile tinnitus for a brief period in one ear. I went to an urgent care....

    Blackout sessions with memory loss

    In the past two weeks on a daily basis I have been having these attacks. It starts with a tic and then ends up in full body tremors, stress, high anxiety, blurry vision, sensitive hearing, headache, memory loss to the point I forget who my husband was or where I am, minimal speech or a just a humming noise, until I eventually pass out. I do have mental disorders but nothing like this has ever happened before. Any ideas or answers for me?

    Leg Pain/ Arm Pain tingling and arms tired

    I'm a 14 year old male and a few days ago I started feeling like my arms are tired and I feel leg and arm pain. I am so scared that this is ALS. I've had a MRI for head pressure that I have had before and it was perfectly fine. I also have tingling in my feet and hands, but not too frequent. I have been stressing a lot over it. My arms can pick up things and move it just hurts and they are tired and want to stop moving. Could this be Als, MS, or the stress could cause these symptoms?

    Sudden Pricking/burning sensation inside head

    Over the past week, it happened twice, don't remember experiencing it before. A pricking/burning sensation at the back left of my head. Felt inside, not scalp related. It happened again earlier today, this time, lower (closer to the base of the skull at the back) and on the right side. The pain lasts for 2-3 seconds and is noticeable, but bearable.

    Shooting pain in head after turning head to the left

    Hi there. A couple of times now I've noticed that when I turn my head to the left, and in some occasions even when I just look only with my eyes to the left, a shooting pain hits my brain - primarily at the very top of my skull. It's very severe for several seconds (I suffer from migraines, and it is on migraine-level for those moments), instantly makes me dizzy, and an ache in my entire head lingers for a few minutes afterwards. I'm not certain if this is related, but I do have non-epileptic....

    Identify a brain disorder?

    Hello, So, in my elementary school, there was the son of one of the secretaries. He was 24, and would come to work with her frequently, so we all saw a lot of him. He was very friendly and kind, but he definitely had a brain/neuro/developmental disorder. I can not seem to figure out which one. Until recently, I had completely forgotten about him but now that he is back in my mind I am wondering if I can figure out any answers. These are his symptoms to the best of my memory (it was 15 years ago)....
