How To Deal With Swelling In The Brain?
I was diagnosed with swelling in the brain but it’s still unknown what the exact cause, it has been 1 month I continue to experience dizziness without stopping. Now, what can I do to get better?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Brain swelling in medical language is called cerebral edema, and occurs when there is a buildup of fluid in the brain. This condition can cause symptoms such as dizziness, difficulty speaking, and can even be fatal if the swelling is caused by a dangerous cause.
Among the causes of brain swelling are:
Air pressure drops at height
Infections, such as meningitis, encephalitis, or toxoplasmosis
And it could also be other causes depending on the results of the examination. Regarding your question, to be cured, first you need to ascertain why. So if your doctor can't find the cause, check yourself with another neurologist. This is very important because each of these conditions is handled differently. Swelling of the brain due to head injury and due to stroke is certainly not the same treatment. For treatment can not be with over-the-counter drugs, must be with an action or prescription drug that can only be issued by a doctor. Therefore direct examination is very important.
In addition, if your doctor is not communicative, you should actively ask what the diagnosis is, hope for recovery, treatment options and so on. It is your right, and your doctor's obligation to explain you until you understand. So, hopefully answering your question.
