Thanks for your questio n
i am an ENT doctor and wants to help you
Do you have ear ringing?
Great. Thanks for your help. Obviously I have many concerns not the least of which is the order in which the tests were given and the conflicting comments
I do not have ear ringing
Do you have vertigo?
Would an abnormal ABR indicate an aneurysm??
Thats what i am coming to
ABR is very much specific for acoustic neuroma
Your report must be showing acoustic neuroma
My wife had an acoustic neuroma and had brain surgery about six years ago
because in the scenario of hearing loss, ABR abnormality, MRI should show acoustic neuroma rather than aneurysm
acoustic neuroma origantes from nerve responsible for hearing so causes ABR abnormality
oh i am sorry to hear this, hows she doing
She is doing great.
Some tinnitus and minor hearing loss
Had I just had the hearing test and it came back normal, why wiould I have had ABR or Cat Scan?
Should i rule out aneurysm and not lose sleep? I am going to an ENT at the Cleveland Clinic on 3/22 for a second opinion
in initial stages hearing test can be normal so thats why your doctor ordered an ABR , and that shows problem so he went straight away for MRI
I think you should get your report reviwed
thats how you can get confirmation
but so far in this scenario, its likely to be acoustic neuroma
if they suspect aneurysm, suppose, then you will be in need of MRA rather than mri
so i think donot worry about that and relax
for your knowledge, donot worry about aneurysm either, its treatable
