So I went to te doc today to get the MRI result.
I got the MRI referal because in the last month I got some brain zaps followed by ear ringing ,but only 3 or 4 times in my whole life.I rarely get headaches ,but always feel tired ,sometimes I feel like I walk like a drunk person.The I smoked weed and got DR/DP.

The report says : Small right AICA vascular loop abutting but not overtly impinging the cochlear nerve within the right internal auditory meatus ,of uncertain significance.
Incidental note of small left frontal lobe cavernoma and minor sinus disease.
A cavernoma is a cluster of abnormal blood vessels, usually found in the brain and spinal cord.

The doctor said I could be born with it (inherited) or developed it.
I have to see a neurosurgeon soon to discuss treatment ,either a surguery to remove it or radiotheraphy.
It is not cancer or a tumor ,but a bunch of entangled blood vessels.

What do you guys think ?

My advice to anyone here ,press your doctor for an MRI scan.Who knows maybe the weed affected me that way because of this issue.

Tell the doctor you are getting brain zaps ,and when you drive a car it scares you ,so you might lose control.

interesting, i have had similar issues for 7 years, but cannot seem to get a MRI refferal, how did you go about this, make up tumour symptoms or what? all the best,
Push for it, it depends what health care you have really, sometimes you just got to spend the money, mine only cost £300

Hi
I've had a brain mri and was diagnosed with a occptipal caveanoma mine had bleed , i was rushed to a neurosurgeon for a follow up as my dr freaked out which freaked me out lol lol lol
Anyway the neurosurgeon said its nothing to worry about at all as its small and normally will not bleed , mine had so i have to have follow up brain mri every 2 years to make sure its not grown .
My caveanoma is in a place that affects vision so the neurosurgeon wouldn't remove it unless absoulty needed as the risk off blindness is quiet high .

Funny tging is other doctors have said caveanoma are not a big deal unless there is a lot off them and they are large .
So i wouldn't stress to much you will find the neurosurgeon will say the same

bro WTF. have you had any neck injurys or whipash in the past?
Hmm I dont think so.But as a young kid I played lots of soccer (football in europe) in Germany in our local football club.I spent most of my youth doing it ,got lots of ball hits on my head.
I asked another doctor the same day abouy cavernoma ,he said dont worry nothing serious ,looks like I inherited such thing.

But the other issue is the AICA vascular loop hitting the cochlear nerve ,which is all in the ear section.
There is a strong link between the vestibular system and DP.
