Explanation Of CT Scan Results And Their Treatment?
hello, I want to ask … a few months ago I underwent a ct scan of the head, then got the results of cerebral edema, chronic sinusitis, as well as cold allergies. Within 2 years I suffered from headaches like vertigo but migraines … the pain is also different and moving, but lately it remains on the right. I’ve been to the hospital many times, usually given nerve relaxants but that doesn’t work either …, what do I actually have? That is all and thank you
Hello Barra, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Cerebral edema or swelling of the brain is a condition where there is a buildup of fluid in the brain. Cerebral edema can occur due to various things, here are some of them:
head injury and bleeding inside the head (for example after an accident and impact to the head) stroke (either ischemic stroke or hemorrhagic stroke) infection in the head such as encephalitis (brain infection), meningitis (infection of the lining of the brain), brain toxoplasmosis, subdural empyema (present pus in the brain) a brain tumor
Some of the symptoms that can arise from cerebral edema include:
headaches and dizziness neck pain and stiffness nausea and vomiting respiratory problems visual impairment motor and motor coordination problems (inability to move hands or feet, or difficulty controlling hand or leg movements) seizures
Chronic sinusitis can lead to cerebral edema by spreading the infection to the brain. The sinuses are cavities in the skull and have a direct connection with the brain. When the sinus cavity is infected (especially chronic or long-standing infections), it can spread to the lining of the brain and brain and cause conditions such as subdural empyema.
In cases like yours, you should immediately consult a neurologist. Bring your laboratory results and CT scan results for further examination by your doctor. Cerebral edema can be dangerous if not treated promptly.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
