what are current tools to localize a neurological problem?–Dofake, Phd in Engin. Sc.

ANYTHING NEW RE: PARKINSON

After a ruptured intercrainial aneurysm has been clipped and the patient shunted, if the patient eventually develops shunt malfunction symptoms like nausea, neck pain, dizziness, and memory problems, could these symptoms become permanent if it took to long for the new shunt to be put in?

Has there been any new developments on treatment for Frontotemporal Degeneration and Dementia? Any sign we’re making progress toward a cure?

Hi @dofake,
Thank you for your question. In very broad terms, here are some of the diagnostic tests that are used for nervous system disorders http://bit.ly/2tJy5YC. A medical history and physical exam would determine which tests to order. Are you currently seeking answers to an unsolved diagnosis?

Welcome, @sandycerem. Good question for the Video Q&A panelists.
I’d also like to invite you to the Parkinson’s group on Connect here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/parkinsons-disease/ I encourage you to introduce yourself to the group, where you’ll be greeted by other members, like @hopeful33250, talking about living with Parkinson’s as well as the latest research and treatment guidelines.

Hi @21yearslater, welcome.
Your question, along with the others posed by members, has been submitted to the panelists. In the meantime, you may also be interested in this past and upcoming Video Q&A related to aneruysms.

I also invite you to join the discussions in the Cerebrovascular Diseases group: http://mayocl.in/2nI5fV2
Do you feel that too much time lapsed before a new shunt was put in, in your situation?

Hello @sandycerem. Thank you for your interest in new developments in Parkinson’s. I am looking forward to find that out as well. I would like to encourage you to become part of our Parkinson’s discussion group at the web address provided by Colleen https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/parkinsons-disease/ Can you tell me a little about your interest in Parkinson’s? Do you personally have this diagnosis or does a family member or friend? Teresa

Thank you for that info. I have spent over 18 years trying to find out why shortly after my second daughter was born I started feeling sick. After bringing myself to every specialist there is, from my eyes , ears, stomach, to my hormones, and after seeing at least 6 neurology specialists, I got a new primary care Dr. That doctor finally sent me to a neurosurgeon who diagnosed me with a shunt malfunction. At this point my original shunt was about 31 years old but I started complaining with symptoms when the shunt was about 13 years old. So even after the new shunt was put in 3 years ago I still have chronic symptoms of dizziness and nausea with some memory issues. I would love to get some insight on what I believe was untreated hydrocephalus and the effects.

How do you treat secondary dystonia?

Hi I suffered an AVM rupture in my cerebellum on 1.1.16 I’m still recovering it’s like a mild stroke would this video be good for me ?

I have gastroparesis, and I wondered if there is anything new in regard to treating a damaged vagus nerve?

Welcome to Connect, @smack. Are you watching the video live right now? I also suggest you watch a couple of relevant past videos.

Re: Regenerative medicine, is it possible to regrow cartilage for bad knees? My Mother Dr. told her she has none,so her knees hurt all the time and especially when walking. Mom is 80 yrs. old.

Hi @neenee,
Questions are closed for this live event. However, we have a few active discussions on Connect where members are talking about regenerative medicine and knee pain. I invite you to join in:
