Persistent headache in my frontal lobe area?


I've taken ibuprofan but I won't go away. It's more to the sides of my frontal lobe and just above my eyes.

It hurts like hell and nothing I take makes it go away. I've got a wisdom tooth coming thru but I don't think it really hurts that much.

Download what you have written here and take it with you when you go and see a doctor. Ask the doctor to have some tests done so as to eliminate that it is nothing serious. Ask the doctor to do an eye test as well, as you might need reading glasses.  (+ info)

Is there a cure for frontal lobe syndrome?


My sister got knocked down accidentally by my sister's boyfriend when she was really little and had a couple of concussions. She has had a history of fainting , headaches, speech problems and explosive anger at times.

What is a small hypodensity in subcortical white matter on the left frontal lobe???
----------

A CT scan corresponds to how well a particular tissue absorbs X-rays - as X-rays are developed on film, the more energy that is absorbed results in a darker colour being produced - thus, on an
X-ray (and a CT scan) bone is white (it absorbs more X-rays than surrounding tissue), air is black (it absorbs very little), and brain matter is a midlin' shade of grey (it absorbs some). Things darker
are hypodense (lower density).

Sounds like some form of trauma,lesion/hemorrhage(maybe stroke related),toxin exposure,low oxygen or infection .This link will go into further detail.
MRI will provide a more precise diagnosis,ask for information in terms you can understand.  (+ info)

What are the effects of drinking with a brain injury?


Well i have a Frontal Lobe Brain injury.I'm 19 and i want to start going to bars with my friends.I feel no urgue to drink and i personally do not like it at all, but i feel pressured into it as EVERYONE i know does it even people i never expected.I feel if i dont do it that i am a loser,especially being 19.So what are the effects of drinking with a Tbi?
----------

The disinhibition from the alcohol may be even more pronounced with a frontal lobe injury. It could be very, very risky, indeed. Drinking alcohol with your TBI would be foolish, to say the least. The people that are pressuring you are the "losers" - not you! If you want to participate socially with your friends at the bar - go ahead. Simply order a soda and leave it at that. You owe them NO explanation whatsoever - other than the fact that you are mature enough to make your own decisions.

how long do brain tumors in frontal lobes last?


How long can the brain tumor located in the frontal lobes last before resulting in death without using antibiotics.
----------

That's hard to say. If benign, it will "last" for as long as the person lives. Tumors don't just go away. Because of the location, frontal tumors can have a big impact on behavior and can cause reckless, irresponsible behavior which could endanger a person bringing about an untimely death.

If malignant and slow-growing, it could take years. If malignant and aggressive, as long as 18 months. Depends on at what stage of the tumor the diagnosis is made, how long the tumor has been present.

Antibiotics aren't used to treat tumors, they are not a bacterial infection.

You'd have to be much more specific in your question.  (+ info)
