Hello, I had an appointment w/ a doctor at the hospital in the Neurological/Psychiatric office and she told me that my C.T. Scan showed that I had swelling in my brain and a possible pinched nerve in my neck. I was diagnosed some years ago with Thoracic Kyphosis-Acquired, an abnormal curve of my thoracic spine, could this be causing all this? I was in a serious drunk driving auto accident decades ago as a toddler and she thinks that maybe I am having problems related to that. I have another appt. in January and a appt. with my P.C.P. in December, which is closer now than it was when it was given to me. Any ideas to the causes would be greatly taken.
Has anyone checked the circulation in your carotid arteries?

I have had more concussions than I have fingers and toes and have had my melon split and stapled more than I can remember. I woke up paralyzed on my left side April of 2016. After 28 days in the hospital and 7 MRIs I found out that I have a lesion on my brain probably from a past head trauma. Could you have a lesion on the brain? I sure hope not cuz I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. I have terrible nerve pain and no longer go to pain management and am prescribed gabapentin and it's a huge help! Maybe you can look into that. I hope I was helpful? I am new to this site and hoping to find people who have similar and maybe even the same condition as me. Hang in there. I strongly recommend gabapentin.
