Mri scan of inner ear

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan of inner ear


Avatar f tn Since then I have pressure in the back of my head on the right side (Cerebellum) area. When the pain gets really bad, I feel alot of pressure in my ear and I lose most of my hearing. At times stationary objects appear to be moving, and I have dizzy spells (standing/sitting). There are mornings when I wake up after 8-9 hours sleep, and the room is spinning like I am intoxicated or all the oxygen has been cutoff to my brain. If I don't get up right away to stop the spinning, I vomit.
Avatar n tn I am going to see an ENT when my GP can get me in but I was wondering if anyone could suggest anything that helps to remove maybe too much fluid in the inner ear or help balance it out. I had a cat scan it was normal but the GP said maybe the ENT will want an MRI of the ear area if they feel there is something going on. I suffered in the 90s with dizzness and vertigo due to ear infection but this time there was no infection or cold etc. Just a little dizzy and the major problem is the balance.
Avatar n tn an mri, hearing and eye tests... one ear test where they squirt water into your ear...found that i had an inner ear injury. now... they didnt want to tell me for sure i had miener's disease for some reason... but im pretty sure it's what i have. I found this blog because i still dont feel right and i want to know if there are any other options than what ive done so far. my doctor has given me water pills... which i guess keeps the water out of my inner ear.. and i havent been dizzy since...
175861 tn?1428186013 A LIKELY CULPRIT Vestibulo-cochlear nerve damage or inflammation, especially when only one side is affected, or one side is worse than the other. The inner ear consists of a system of fluid-filled tubes and sacs called the labyrinth. The labyrinth serves two functions: hearing and balance. The hearing function involves the cochlea, a snail-shaped tube filled with fluid and sensitive nerve endings that transmit sound signals to the brain.
Avatar f tn Meniere's disease is a condition of the inner ear, where in, the inner ear apparatus is filled with fluid and the fluid pressure is high. This produces symptoms of fullness of ear, headache etc.
Avatar m tn I just wanted to know if a CT scan from the head shows an inner ear infection or any ear infection that might cause dizziness and derealization. I have been having some derealization and dizziness and feeling a little dreamy with some eye problems lately and i was thinking if i should see an ear & throat specialist or its anxiety related. I had the CT scan about 4-5 months ago and i haven't had any cold or flu from then. I also did an MRI from my neck which came back normal.
Avatar n tn MRI BRAIN: Multiplanar multisequences scan performed with thin slices to CP angles without contrast. - There are multiple small high signal intensity areas in white matter on both side in FLAIR sequence without any mass effect. This is non-specific. This could be due to ischemic changes from small vessels disease.

Avatar m tn I have an appointment with my ENT on may 3rd, but i would love to take an MRI of my ear to rule out anything else. I call the clinic for MRI, they need to know exactly what MRI to ask. Can an MRI identify eustachian blockage?? Thanks.
Avatar m tn He had to have stitches, they said he had a concussion and his inner ear was bleeding which they said was a tympanic membrane perforation and that it will have to heal on its own. The ER did a CT scan and noted mild right frontal periventicular white matter density. This could represent mild chronic small vessel ischemic change thought this would be atypical for patient's age. Nonspecific gliosis is a consideration.
Avatar m tn I tend to think it *might* be an inner ear thing because I do get a clogged feeling in my right ear that comes and goes frequently and no amount of blowing or chewing seems to make it "pop." Unfortunately, the doctor says my ear looks fine through his scope, but then again it only can go into the middle ear. I'm just curious as to what people with migraine issues think of this.
1441177 tn?1294228218 The symptoms may be described as iam unable to balance myself, cant properly walk, cannot move or tilt my head (for this makes the symptom got worse) and this dizzy/vertigo feeling, ringing in my right ear and feeling full, and FEELING NERVOUS, That's all of the symptoms, other that that NO MORE ELSE, no pain in any part of the head or nape, no weak arms or legs, and i can talk straight.
Avatar n tn tinnitus as we call it), is pulsatile, that is oscillating in intensity, another but less likely possiblity is a problem at the jugular foramen (an area in the skull base close to the inner ear) such as a tumor or blood clot in the jugular vein.
Avatar m tn I was just wondering if a CAT Scan from the head can show any sign of inner ear infection. I also took an MRI from my neck that came back normal. I have been having some dizziness, headache, vertigo and a sore throat that just started yesterday and i was wondering if these could be the sign of an inner ear infection? Yesterday i visited my dentist for cleaning and i realized that when he was cleaning my gum my ears got blocked for couple of seconds.
Avatar n tn Can either an inner ear issue, such as fluid on the ear, or a chronic sinus infection lead to seizures? I have been suffering for about 7 years from chronic sinus infections along with a tremendous amount of fluid on my ears first thing in the morning. I have seen an ENT 4 times who repeatedly tells me there is no fluid on my ears. ( I know what I feel when I first get out of bed in the mornings.
Avatar n tn I am not saying that I do not have NDPH, but I wanted to see if what my problem truly was had something to do with my inner ear? Could you have an inner ear problem with out getting true vertigo and with the symptoms I described above? Thanks in advance for any advice or insight!
Avatar f tn I was sent by an ENT consultant for an MRI scan to investigate my problem with imbalance in January 2008. I have since obtained a copy of the radiological report. which states the following: "Scattered high signal white matter change is noted bilaterally in a mainly periventricular distribution especially in the parietal and temporal lobe/regions.
Avatar f tn Have any of the many Doctors you have seen --- taken any kind of a CT scan or MRI ? Or are they just looking in your ear and not seeing anything so figuring nothing is wrong? I did not have pain, I had pressure. Until my face went numb, no one took an MRI. And an ANA coming back positive can be anything. It is an autoimmune test, but can't pinpoint why it is showing up until you find out what is wrong. Could be a simple infection. If no one has taken an MRI - ask for one.
Avatar m tn Other than a 21% weakness in my left ear (supposedly a low number), all tests were fine. No sign of a Labyrinthitis so my ENT took me off the Topamax and put me on Elavil and a diuretic. He thought I might have Meniere's and that it wasn't presenting as typical Meniere's. After over 5 weeks of taking the prescribed meds, I began to feel worse. My ENT brought me back in and was clearly baffled. By this time, I am walking with a cane and not driving. I asked the ENT if I was crazy.
Avatar n tn Now he says I have some abnormality in the inner ear. Outer ear is clean and no infection and perfect and hearing is normal. I experience the following problems. 1. I feel like the left ear is always full with pressure. And most of the time it gives head aches. 2. I feel like something is in the ear, and there is little ringing sound. 3. When I do exercise I feel like the ear become full, like no air flow some where. 4. Is my escutcheon tube is blocked?
Avatar n tn Hi, Does anyone know the minimum age an infant can have an MRI or CT Scan ? We need to check our sons inner ear anatomy. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I've seen a neurologist ent dr, had mri and ct of brain, ct scan of ear bone and sinus, multiples blood tests, vng test, and everything has come back normal. Even though its all come back normal I will continue to find answers. Basic symptoms are constant dizzy/ poor balance, spurts of vertigo and my vision moves up and down when I stare at things, and clicking in ears every time i swallow. Could this be caused by wax build up in the inner ear?
Avatar n tn I'm 35 male, take Prilosec OTC, 75 mcg synthroid, and 162 mg aspirin (PFO). I have not has a stroke before or a DVT... In 2005, had complaints of numbness in my extremities. Had brain MRI, spine MRI, and spinal tap. Spine MRI and lumbar puncture normal, but brain MRI revealed small area in right midbrain that was suspicious, although it didn't show any effects of the contrast material. Followed-up with a Multiple Sclerosis doc who said he didn't think it was MS.
Avatar n tn I am calling my neurologist back next week and am requesting either an MRI or a CT Scan of my brain. None of us should have to live with this type of or as much pain. Maybe the pain is not coming from our backs as I have been reading on other websites, maybe it is truly a neurological thing. But I will see what he says. God Bless you all.
5531927 tn?1445278519 Hello, I had a CT scan of brain and inner ear yesterday without contrast. I'm not confident that they will find anything based on all the other posts I've been reading. The Anisocoria is intermittent still and I feel slightly dizzy still. The headaches are confined to a dull aching on the side that I have hearing loss as well as stiff neck on that side. I'm kind of all over the map I suppose. Hopefully I get the results soon.
Avatar f tn For the past 10yrs I have had many symptoms that really resembeled MS. But 10yrs ago I was told anxiety problem.....I accepted that and moved on. Well 4 yrs went by and I started getting bad dizziness ( off balance) and much pain in my back and hips....went to another DR, DX'd with Fibro and Oesteoarthritis in my lower spine. Last year the pain got so bad I went to get help. I made an appt with a Rheumatologist, he is NO GOOD!!!!!!!!
3051583 tn?1352469361 sinus CT scan, MRI head, checks of ears and nasal areas with hand scope, blood tests. No signs of infection or abnormalities. I've never had any fever. I have had a history of tight knotty neck muscles. I had a chiro look at me but after 2 sessions I haven't been back as I haven't felt any better. But I am wondering if I should now see a masseuse. Thanks.
Avatar n tn You would need to see an ENT specialist. If the doctor feels that he or she needs to investigate the inner parts of the ear in more detail, you may need to have a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Let us know if you need any other information. Regards.
Avatar dr m tn For example, I saw a man in his late 30’s who came to see me with 3 days of left ear sound distortion and reverberation with mild fullness. He had no other problems, including hearing loss. His exam was completely normal. Most doctors at this point will give a diagnosis of Eustachian tube dysfunction, where due to mild nasal inflammation, the tube that connects to the ear is partially blocked, leading to pressure changes that can cause ear problems.
