Fetal development of skull

Common Questions and Answers about Fetal development of skull


Avatar n tn I have a 7mm mca aneurysm and I am waiting for my second meeting with a neurosurgeon. Over the last six weeks I have had a fluid rushing sound in the back of my neck at the base of my skull. No vision changes, no headache at that time just a sound I hear that makes me nervous and lasts for between 1 and 3 seconds. I have also been getting headaches for about three weeks now and have never had headaches in my life but did recently start taking 10 mg of Lexapro.
124426 tn?1239931600 There often is mucgh overlap among ADHD, Bipolar D/O and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. And Fetal Alcohol Syndrome can yield a number of emotional, behavioral and cognitive difficulties, icluding limited IG, impulsivity and unstable/inconsistent behavior. But medication is used to address particular symptoms, regardless of the diagnosis (a particualr symptom itself can be symptomatic of any number of conditions). It's not the diagnosis that's treated, it's the symptom(s).
1065941 tn?1265062699 Fetal ventriculomegaly occurs in approximately 1 in every 1,000 births, and in roughly half of the cases, there are no other findings or abnormalities in the baby. Diagnosis Fetal ventriculomegaly can be detected through ultrasound (sonogram) towards the end of the first trimester. Evaluation of the brain and cranial structure is part of the routine ultrasound examination done by many obstetricians as part of their prenatal care.
1432741 tn?1300202363 In fact, your baby actually goes through 3 sets of kidneys during development with this week's development, being the second set. Both the hand plates and the genital tubercle are present this week, but you can't tell whether it's a boy or a girl by sight at this point. Nasal pits are also forming. In your womb, your baby has already become active swimming around inside the amniotic sac and kicking.
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm not a health care specialist, just someone that has had chiari malformation surgery and has done research, so don't take my word as gospel, but basically "yes" to both questions. All types of Chiari are congenital - that means you are born with it. And you can pass it along. That's not to say you will for sure, I've heard the statistics are around 14% chance - not a huge number, but a number to pay attention to. I believe there are 5 types of Chiari.
Avatar n tn A long standing cyst could be due to a parasitic infection or due to an aneurysm or it could be a cyst formed during fetal development such as colloid or dermoid or epidermoid cyst. You need to get a MRI to assess whether the cyst has grown in size and causing pressure symptoms or not. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn Enlargement of the ventricular system, the fluid filled spaces in the brain, can be caused by the overproduction of CSF, inadequate brain development or destruction of brain tissue. In a normal fetal brain, the ventricles are less than 10 mm wide. When the ventricles are between 10mm and 15mm wide, the baby is diagnosed with mild ventriculomegaly. If the ventricles are more than 15 mm wide, the enlargement is considered severe.

1160836 tn?1332333769 I am now on my 3 and last round of Clomid I am on 150mg 3-7 days and I hope that this time I O because on my last round they told me I O early on cd 15 I have never O in 11 years so that was a good thing. But doc said that the numbers where not where he wanted them to be at so that is why he up my clomid this time. As for side effects on 50mg I had mood swings and hot flashes and the wonderful headaches... On 100mg I thank god I did not have any but did have crazy dreams with them.
1434024 tn?1329816440 I recently described in my last post about some strange click/tap/pop sound along with some pain in the lower, left area of my skull. (read most recent post before this to understand) I only got one reply of advice/opinion, mentioning Arnold Chiari Malformation.. So I decided to look it up to do some research on it... I read many different articles which all sort of stated similar facts: symptoms, causes, treatment, etc...
1434024 tn?1329816440 the hear the sound as i feel what kind of feels like someone poked me in the back of my skull and its an uncomfortable feeling, like as if someone took a slingshot with a penny, quarter, dime, w/e metal coin, aimed it at the back of my lower left skull, and it hits me..., its NOT in my neck or when i move my neck or bones...
Avatar n tn It can be caused by structural defects in the brain and spinal cord that occur during fetal development, whether caused by genetic mutations or lack of proper vitamins or nutrients in the maternal diet. This is called primary or congenital CM. It can also be caused later in life if spinal fluid is drained excessively from the lumbar or thoracic areas of the spine either due to injury, exposure to harmful substances, or infection. This is called acquired or secondary CM.
Avatar n tn He told me that you can not determine the type of cyst unless it is taken out. I've heard of a lot of people who know what type of cyst they have. So my question is, can you determine what type of cyst it is by reading the MRI? And also, how likely is it that a cyst will pop? Are there precautions that need to be taken so they don't pop; should she not particpate in sports, or spin around or go on rollar coasters, etc? Thanks for the help.

Avatar n tn Briefly, the foramen ovale is a communication between the right and left side of the heart that is present during normal fetal development but closes off in the general population. In as many as 10-20% of individuals, this small hole persists providing a pathway for blood clots to travel from the venous circulation (right heart) to the arterial circulation (left heart). If blood clots are present in the left heart, they can then be pumped out of the heart into the brain causing a stroke.
Avatar f tn and is quiet common mine is about the size of a.golf ball it has left me with a bit of a tremmor through the left side of my body but they r usually harmless so I hope that.your little 1 might.just have something like that other than a.tumor.
Avatar n tn Although there is a school of thought that they are a congential defect, that is they appear during gestation and typically in the first 2 - 5 weeks of fetal development. This means that people who are diagnosed with having them have had them from since before they were born and will continue to have one throught their lives. They typically are either catagorised as symptomatic or non symptomatic.
Avatar f tn First let me say I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at 18 in 1990.The docs said it was so bad I was born with it and it was altered from the norm, mutated.It required me to have 4 surgeries. Those surgeries removed neck muscle. I mention this as Ive been in constant spasm at least since 1994, if not longer. Ive had neck problems documented since 1994 theyve progressed and I am in constant severe pain. With development of always tingling both hands-thumb, pointer & middle finger.
Avatar n tn i know someone whos fetus had one of those so severe they were worried about airway obstruction. she had a choice of a very complicated inutero surgery or abortion as the baby definitely would not live if born with the hyrgroma... she sadly chose abortion because $$ and rist of future fertility was a huge risk, but as i said her baby's was very severe...
Avatar n tn My first US scan showed a gestational sac consistent with that of a 5.5 week old pregnancy - no fetal pole as yet. 2 weeks later I did a follow up US and this time it showed identical twins with good measurements and strong heart beats. I was at that stage 7.5 weeks pregnant. I was in total shock but was extremely excited at the same time - can't wait to tell hubby when I get home. For the next week and a bit, I felt like the luckiest person to ever live - felt sooooo blest.
363682 tn?1299492962 I've recently had Botox injections in my neck and the base of my skull and was doing well until the last few days. I want to be able to enjoy a drink out with my husband, but can't keep taking migraine abortive meds for prevention. Guess there aren't any answers, but I just wanted to put my 2 cents in and let people know there are a lot of us out here.
Avatar f tn I don't know if my shakes are due to meds or just part of the disease. So many effects of the disease and so little knowledge about it. I hope someone can advise you a little better, I feel for you, 24/7 must be wearing for you. All the best.
Avatar n tn I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much. I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of.
Avatar n tn I do get heart palpitations from time to time and they just come out of know where. I do feel a tad frustrated as there is no drug for this condition. A lot of friends and family do not understand this condition as a result can never understand/relate to me feeling the way I do. #1 Always feeling tired. I want to do things and go out and have a great time but there are times I have no control over it and I just need my bed and need sleep.
Avatar n tn but not this mysterious pain..... ahhh about 5 years of frustration now----with no end in sight-----kinda like gurgling, pulled muscle, twitching feeling inside that drives me crazy....I'd like to reach in & grab it out if I could.... something is being missed.... some pancreas inflammation type thing ?? spleen ??? scan says all is fine and blood readings OK... hmmmmm DOCTORS you are missing something... arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !! frustrated Rob ....take care all.....
Avatar n tn I had my first round of IVF in February. I asked the doctor about bed rest, and he said basically spend more time "down" than you do "up". So, get out of bed to go to the bathroom and shower, but other than that stay inactive. It is very important that you stay on bed rest for the first 2 days. Stock up on books, DVDs, and even trashy tabloid magazines (what celebrities go through will make your life seem uneventful!
Avatar f tn i often notice it after eating and a lot of times when i go out at night and drink alcohol. a lot of times ill get abdominal pain after eating.. do you get any of these other symptoms as well or no? i'm only 23 but have been dealing with it since i was 17.
Avatar n tn My suggestion on how to sleep....is already known! Ok, I don't want to transform all of you in a bunch of drug addicted, but have you tried a tranquillizer just once? Just to see whether your tingling diminishes the moment you calm down? @rnneeedshelp: as my "colleague" has written, you are anxious over the symptoms, not the opposite, and the same is for all of us.
Avatar n tn In other words no heroics. And an accurate assessment of level of consciousness may be skewed in the presence of drugs used to make the person comfortable. However, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep you alive longer, and it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain and/or anxiety control.
