It could also be occipital headache that is caused due to strain and tightness of muscles that connect skull to the neck. You can consult a Physiotherapist specialized in manual therapy and see if that helps decrease the pain Also stretching exercises for upper neck muscles can help. Good Luck.

Acoustic Neuroma - Know Its Treatment!

Acoustic Neuroma - Know Its Treatment!

Acoustic neuromas are tumors that develop on the nerves connecting the ear to the brain. Being non-cancerous in nature, they do not spread to other parts of the body. However, they are characterized by symptoms such as gradual or sudden hearing loss, more pronounced with either of the ears, a ringing sensation in the affected ear, weakness, facial numbness and dizziness.

Causes:

Acoustic neuroma can be of two types: one is sporadic in nature and the other is associated with a condition known as neurofibromatosis type II (NF2). NF2 is basically an inherited disorder identified by benign growth in the nervous system. NF2 being a rare disorder, makes the sporadic type the dominant one. Although the causes behind this type of neuroma are still unknown, long term exposure to radiations, especially around the neck and the head, could be one of the most important triggering factors.

Treatments:

Once the diagnosis is done, treatments for acoustic neuroma depend on the growth and size of the tumor.

  1. Diagnosis with the help of monitoring: Small tumors exhibiting no such symptom or slow signs of growth need to be monitored with the use of hearing tests and regular imaging. In case, the MRI scans are able to trace any sort of development on the part of the tumor or if the tumor poses subsequent difficulties, opting for treatment becomes the need of the hour.

  2. Stereotactic Radiosurgery: Also known as Gamma Knife, radiosurgery is a treatment method wherein controlled radiations are used to treat tumors, thus doing away with the need of making any incision.

  3. Surgical Removal: Surgery performed under general anesthesia is directed towards removing the tumor; that helps to preserve the facial nerve and thus inhibit facial paralysis and hearing loss. The tumor is usually removed either through the ear or through the skull.

Dear Jana, You should ask your doctor rgis question. Or you can ask your family member who took you to the doctor. With the available information, i think that you were going astray probably on weed or alcohol. It might be due to your depression for which Escitalopram is prescribed. May be you had irregular sleeping habits for which a hypnotic Zolpidem 10 prescribed. Probably your family would have thought if you sleep well and feel happy and confident, you may not seek alcohol or weed. Alcohol, weed, zolpidem and escitalopram work on the various neurochemicals in the brain to make you feel happy and confident. Together, the dose may be too much for you, making you croggy, imbalanced, poor reflexes while riding leading you to accidents, dizziness, drowsiness etc. Please remember, it all depends on the dose of alcohol and cannabis - what drink, how much quantity, the duration of drinking, type of food along with it, etc. Better to avoid alcohol and weed and continue to use escitalopram and zolpidem. All the best
