    Side effects?

    Hi I'm 13 and I get headaches a lot and my pediatrician is trying to get me to see a neurologist. And she ordered a mri so the don't have to do one when I go there. She ordered one with contrast and without. What I'm wondering is what is the fluid they put in the IV?! Can it have side effects or what? I'm just really confused about what the fluid is for a mri with contrast???

    Concussion 2 years later

    I never thought I had concussions. turns out all the times I saw stars after diving for balls were all mild concussions. Jan of 2016 got a concussion playing volleyball. 3 days later I got pushed into a wall playing basketball. Started feeling like crap but did not know why. I played again a week later and the rest is history. I came home from that game and could not leave a dark room for over 3 months. The next year was terrible. Every day I was nauseous and bad sensitivity to light, sounds, etc....

    lightning bolt spasms back of the head , followed by tremor, brain fog ect...

    First of all let me say first and foremost. What I and others are experiencing around this topic is unrelated and has no correlation to anxiety. Anybody who says it is not going through this, is being hard headed and as well in a hurry to jump to a conclusion. Yes the symptoms include anxiety but it is not the root cause of the problem. Unfortunately when bringing up this topic with most health care "professionals" they just write it off as. I first started noticing the effects of this....

    LOSE OF STRENGTH IN LEGS

    I unfortunately had a heavy object hit me in the head. I have always been an active person lifting weights and running. After the incident I have lost lots of strength in my legs and I also have not been able to run anymore because of imbalance and head pain. My gate has gradually gotten worse and I still stay active by doing lots of walking? Any ideas??

    Hand Tremors? Please Help Me Identify What This Is!

    I am 17 years old and I developed a hand tremor in my right hand a few months ago that only occurred once in a while, usually when I was holding something (a glass of water, my pencil when doing homework, a fork when eating dinner). Now, I have a hand tremor in both my left and right hands, the right a bit more severe than the left, that would occur at rest and when holding something. I also noticed that I can't smell things as easily anymore, and can only detect super strong or potent smells....

    frustrated, no diagnosis

    In October 2016 at the age of 55, I noticed a slight tremor in my thumb, which continued over a period. I went to my PCP, who observed marked cogwheel ratcheting in my right arm, and we both suspected early Parkinson's. The neurologist observed the same thing and said he also suspected PD. Neurologist started me on amantadine. Right after this, I started using estrogen cream for urinary problems. As soon as I started the cream, the stiffness in my right arm went away, as well as the tremor. My....

    muscle twitch

    Hi, I am a 22 year old male and I've had random muscle twitches ( mostly upper body, no legs) at different times a day ever since middle school; in addition, when I move my head side to side fast, inside my head hurts, and I can't balance on one leg. I think there is something wrong with my nervous system - neck and spine but Im not sure.. I also think my neck and spine might be curved a bit weird because my neck is shorter than normal. I don't know if this has to do with my problem but....
