Migraines can be treated and need a thorough headache evaluation to determine the source and triggers for the same. It is possible to eliminate them with the correct medical treatment and lifestyle changes.

I get sudden severe pain shocks in the back of my skull sometimes. It occurs sometimes monthly, and sometimes quarterly. It lasts for hardly 1 second. Is there any brain/skull related problem to me?

It may be due to cervical spine disc lesions or may be due to spondylosis changes, start physiotherapy asap, use comfortable cervical pillow, use proper mattress.

There are 2 different thing 1.-fracture ankle2.-numbness in ankle .numbness may be because of uncontrolled diabetic status for which he need diabetes control & take neurotrophic drugs I think surgery is advised for neglected fracture ankle which is causing painful ankle now.

As per MRI, I have small 6 mm calcification in right parental love. Please suggest what it is meant? What to do?

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Hi, how old are you and when was the first time you discover about calcification. I think you are talking about right parietal lobe (6 mm calcification), it may be just incidental finding or may be related to some underlining cause, for that I need detailed history of yours, why you need to MRI head done (did you have any recent history of head injury, any problem like seizures, as per if you don't have problem in day to day life then it may be just normal incidental finding. You can give me more details to relate clinically.
