Brain abscess journal

Common Questions and Answers about Brain abscess journal


579258 tn?1250652943 Woke up at 4 am and noticed an area on my abdomen, below the lowest of the four previous abscesses, that is the size of a pencil eraser. Not too big yet, but definitely abscess .. and hurts. Since I have been on antibiotics since the first week in May, this really should not be happening. Decided to go to the ER, where they know what this is, and beat the 8 am rush. The doctor who was the one who made the correct diagnosis, nocardiosis, is the one I was fortunate enough to see.
Avatar f tn I had to start the Vicodin again to ease the pain but have to tolerate the nausea. How do you know if your brain is swelling? So many questions and no answers....

Avatar f tn Well here I'm again.. writing in my journal. it seems lately the only time I write is when things become overwhelming to me.. I can only hope that my pictures show the love and reverence for life that I do.. On drugs it was not always so. on drugs we can not see outside our own prison.. now free I see and sometimes it hurts and I do not know what to do with the pain.. MY oldest sister Ida Kathy has stage 3 breast cancer I had just found this out 2 days ago after a wonderful trip to china town S.
Avatar n tn I've given up on mine - he resents anyone else with a brain. Looking elsewhere, cuz I've given enough of my life to this stupid disease and refuse to give up my brain to my PCP. Thanks to all you great people here, I know what I'm lookin' for and refuse to stop until I find it. Already discovered a conversion problem (no thanks to my pcp) and started on cytomel (also no thanks to pcp) - what a difference!! Woohooo - feeling better than I have in a long time.

Avatar n tn Nevertheless with tears in my eyes in face of worthless local anethestic he cut open the abscess. 2 weeks later I was back at surgeon #2 since the abscess was reforming again. He told me I had a fistula as a result of the anal plasty (flap over the fissure) that was done. So we went to the operating room for examination under anethesia and possible fistulotomy. surgeon #1 had already done a full colonoscopy so there was no concern over other conditions.

Avatar n tn Can ALS be ruled out with a clean EMG on just one limb? I had a brain MRI one year ago due to headaches which was normal. Could a syrinx or spinal tumor cause these problems? I'm afraid I'm going to end up in the ER soon. My thryoid levels are normal and I am not an anxious person. I'm a 32 year old female and just want to feel normal again. This progression of symptoms is affecting my daily life. Thank you.
Avatar m tn If you want to know what causes sinusitis, and why the saline solution works, go to Part II of this journal. PART I 1. MAKING YOUR OWN SALINE SOLUTION WARNING: Do not use tap water, unless it has been boiled first. There is a rare microbe that can get in your brain from some water systems. Saline solution is salt water. You can buy a bottle of saline solution in a drugstore, and it works just fine.
1809070 tn?1402577679 Using a journal is a tool we use in treatment, and there is a journal here that works wonderfully for addicts. I hope you consider supporting our boys to open up here and by doing so, give them another tool to fight the devil. Thank you Alexandria and Ashellofme for caring so much about your boys. I truly had a tear as you described you son Alex, my own sounds so similar. We are truly blessed.
Avatar m tn You actually have a sensory seizure disorder, which is caused by a slight chemical imbalance in your brain. Unlike motor seizures, sensory seizures are partial seizures and they don’t manifest in a loss of motor control. Instead they affect how people perceive sounds or images, or in your case, smells. Your seizures are activated when you stimulate the nerves in your nose by laughing or talking.

551343 tn?1506834118 This mri took 15 months to get which must be an NHS record. My brain mri showed no further changes so I was discharged after being with him for 4 years. I went into lock down mode as I always told ms specialist I didn't feel it was ms. I gave up with the nhs for 3 years only having support from my GP. Last year I plucked up the courage to have a 3rd opinion. Two neuro's examined me and felt it was either progressive ms or a rare form of progressive neuromyelitis optica.
Avatar m tn So, this word of advice to anyone whose dog is on phenobarb, who is terrified by symptoms that mimic an aggressive brain tumor--don't panic. It might be a tumor (heck, my dog still might have a tumor), but it is also possible that it's the phenobarbital. Try to keep a log of what your dog does every day. Does he stop tripping one day? Does he manage to stand all through dinner one day? The progress is very slow. But if it's just drug side effects, it will get better.
356518 tn?1322267242 I had the pleasure of talking with a couple of them today who have brought to our attention on the SA forum that there was a lady on here who had an awesome journal about pregnancy and pain meds. This will be a life saver to us when we get moms over on our side who have no where to turn. Just thought you should know how much it is appreciated!!!
Avatar f tn I never know when they might happen. I started a journal and can't link them to any single thing., My temperature is normal during these episodes. My entire body is chilled & I wrap myself up in a blanket & cover my body shakes & my teeth chatter. I become so tense that my body does ache when I am finally over it. They are seeming to last longer than when they first started. I don't have an infection that I know about--no glands are swollen.
Avatar f tn I wrote to this doctor and he said it is definately associated with my demyelination (a brain abnormality) and i should search a solution in that direction. In another forum someone had demyelination too and the doctor said it has nothing to do with it. I am really frustrated... I don't know what to do...! Everything stinks, tastes awfull and i can't enjoy my life.. really! What do we do??
Avatar n tn I've been suffering from generalized anxiety since 1998 and now a clonazepam dependent. Feel better now a days but I am still desperately searching for my real self, I mean, the way I was when anxiety was not yet controlling my mind and body. Don't you feel it too? That the REAL YOU is not there anymore, no where to be found? Don't you always say to yourself, "This is NOT me!" What do you think, guys, will we ever get back to our own world before?
660300 tn?1224793961 Hi Naygirl and everyone else still on this thread I am glad to hear things are back to normal for you, i am losing my mind - i have had the numbness for over a year an am beginning to lose hope, I had an abscess after an extraction after a filling that didn't work, I had to have many operations to fix the abscess and at the end of it have been left with a numb bottom lip and gums behind, it's been over a year and I am at the end of my tether, i have recently found out that my jawbone is still i
Avatar n tn I am on no meds but I have this really strange feeling that I might be having a reaction to the titanium. At no certain times, during no certain functions I get like this brain fuzz/fog (sort of electrical buzz) that lasts for only a second or two. During some of them there is a chemical/metal type smell that only I smell. Has ANYONE else had this. I am very unsure of telling my surgeon because he may want to do more surgery and I have had enough of the neck surgery's.
Avatar n tn Since your liver enzymes are raised, possibility of liver infection is there. An abscess in the liver at the site of surgery could also be the case. This is often missed if not searching for it carefully. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Yrs. ago, I also went through this terrible problem & ETD is just the worst thing to dx/treat/fix. My case was unilateral w/ ear but bilateral w/ nasal prssr-hdprssr. I also went through several ENT's/Neurotologists scans & tests. Cause can be 1 or multi-problems. It's a rule out game. Hm-journal, like a sm- calendar bk is great since it's dated & can go back to see date of matching events/symptoms. Use abreviations. The ET's are in the back of the throat & connect to middle-ear.
