Common Questions and Answers about Medicines in neurology


Avatar n tn Hi! In clots around the dural space which develop slowly, symptoms of compression develop slowly and progress with the level of compression. The usual treatment is to drain the clot. This is because the symptoms will subside once the pressure is removed. To remove the pressure, blood has to be drained from the space it is occupying. Thereafter the patient may need physiotherapy and medications. Please discuss the best treatment option with your neurologist. Take care!

Avatar n tn Although there is some research being run now to test the effectiveness of this drug, I found an article about this drug (see the link). Based on the literature, this drug is being used in China in patient with brain injuries such as stroke 48 hours following a stroke. and the result doesn't seem surprising especially that the recovery rate following using this drug is not interesting, at least for me.

Avatar m tn Hi there. Humming in the head could be due to tinnitus or ringing sensation in the ears. The causes of tinnitus are ear wax or foreign body in the ear, loud noise exposure, drugs like aspirin, meniere’s disease, brain aneurysm or tumor. Consult a neurologist for a detailed clinical examination, audiogram, auditory brain stem response and CT/MRI as deemed relevant by the otolaryngologist. Therapy would be guided by the diagnosis. Take care.

3109057 tn?1341701952 Hi, I'm a 31 year old mom of three little ones and I've been having some symptoms consistent with MS. For at least the last four weeks I've had tingling and numbness in my toes and feet, especially when I'm working out hard, and I've been feeling dizzy, foggy, off balance, and very tired. I chalked most of that up to being a mom until I saw my doctor on Monday about the tingling and numbness in my feet. She thought I might have a slipped disk and ordered an x-ray.
Avatar f tn Personally, I had three flares the first year on Copaxone, 2 flares in the 2nd, and 1 flare in the third year. It's very common to have multiple flares in the first year after being diagnosed, even if you've been in limbo for some time. It was hard to distinguish between being in a flare and recovering from one, but by my count, it was at least three in the first year. The real key will be to see if your brain has gotten any new lesions since you've been on Copaxone.
Avatar n tn Long term use of PPIs like aciphex causes decreased absorption of vitamin B12 leading to a deficiency in this crucial vitamin. Vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms include numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. Permanent nerve damage will occur if vitamin B12 deficiency has has gone without treatment for a sufficient time.

Avatar m tn Sounds just like peripheral neuropathy to me. I have it. At first it came from a bad back, I had neuropathy just a little in one foot and up into my lower leg, to where I couldn't feel those pins they stick in me. It was in the sole of my foot on the side, had the same swelling as you, stingy, and redness, pain.
Avatar f tn t done back exercises all these years, I would have probably wound up in a wheelchair by now. And in addition, you MUST see the neurosurgeon, whether you wind up with surgery or not, because you do not want to put the spinal cord in any kind of danger, depending on how big this shift is. I've lived with minor shifts for many years, but the time is coming where my neurologist is gonna have to do SOMEthing different for me.
