Arrow *1st post: MRI help

- I have had daily headaches for around 4-6 months now, especially in the morning. It feels like constant pressure, and always worse after sleep.

- Dizziness

- Blurred vision at times

- Loss of balance at times (running into walls, accidentally broke a hanging picture recently). Maybe unrelated, but still.

- Bad nausea. Some days are worse than others, but often bad in the morning. Side note: not pregnant. This has been going on for months, and still the same.

- Tingly feeling on my head, and sometimes that with a mix of numbness on my face.

- Had an MRI done, waiting to hear results but do have a CD with the images.

- MRI (large brain bulge in front one the one) black dots, not symmetrical, uneven center nerve T part, ...

- No known biological family history

- All of these symptoms are new within the last 4-ish months or so.

So sorry if way too much info, just trying to get what I can think of.

I would love to upload pictures, but it looks like that is not an option here.

Any information and/or knowledge would be amazing. Thank you so much!

Nothing looks like hydrocephalus imaging that I've seen, but I don't think you've got the best views of ventricles shown. I will look later on an actual monitor, maybe the phone screen and viewing before morning caffeine changes my perspective. Note there are pics online that show examples of hydrocephalus on imaging. It may be that a more general forum or chiari forum might be appropriate places to ask in, any forum people with more familiarity with imaging hang out.

The bulge you refer to, if you mean 7006 image, is in the back of your head. I'm not sure if you are saying front of pic or other. Any time a view like that isn't symmetric is notable, so expect them to note that in the report. Some odd looking imaging can just show odd, but not concerning, things. I do know some tumors can cause hydrocephalus by blocking csf flow.

Hey Rainbow,
I have to agree with what has been said by Pogo. I cannot see signs of hydrocephalus from those images, but can clearly see a shift in brain anatomy. You state you have a CD of the images, does the CD also contain the radiologists report. You need that report
Vision changes is something that is often a sign of something neurological occurring BUT sight is a complex sense. Many years ago it used to be thought that specific areas of the brain controlled certain parts of the body. Now it has been established that parts of the brain interact with each other to form and process sight and not an individual process of a single area.
Dizziness is another sign of something neurological is occurring and this too can be linked to a loss of balance and nausea. Personally I'd say that without the radiologists report, some dr's could simply label it as possibly 'hormonal changes' and I am not saying this as a sexist comment, but a statement of fact. My issues, for many years were put down as hormonal changes (as a teen) prior to MRI and CT scans being readily available.
It was more than 20yrs later that I had a scan and it was only after my dr's had received the radiologist report that immediate action was taken.

Best of luck with it all and please do keep us informed. I would be more than interested to know.
