I have been told I have a big signal lesion deep posterially

Customer Question

I have been told I have a big signal lesion deep posterially frontal lobe surrounded in white substance. I have been diagnosed with panic attacks but I have short memory loss and can't concentrate that well before this was even found. I have severe back pain too and pins and needles in my right hand. I am 41.

I also suffered over a year ago with severe headaches and neck pain and felt my head was too heavy for my neck to hold. I also had a bout of uveitis not long after that. I told my doctor all this and they say it's all connected to anxiety! Also I go to the toilet a lot the past few years up to 6times a night! They also did a lumbar puncture which came back negative. I am so stressed out that I don't feel me any more and they won't listen to me and sent me to a psychiatric evaluation. I had that and she said I was mentally stable. My back pain is severe and I still cannot concentrate at all everything makes me want to switch it off . It feels like a foggy brain if there is such a word?

Do you have your MRI report? Could you attach it using the upload button? Having a normal CSF analysis really helps in the diagnosis of something severe, the uvietis may be not associated to the brain lesion issue. Please reply with a specific question as it is difficult to diagnose you here online and I will respond. Dr Frank

If you can write your reply that would be fine.

Hi Dr Frank.I cannot upload my MRI report because it's all in Norwegian. It only says I have a high signal lesion deep posterially frontal lobe. It's surrounded in white subcutaneous substance. They say it's irrelevant to my problems but my question is - what do they mean by this lesion? And what could have caused this lesion?
Thanks Lindsey.
Sorry for the late reply it's just I live in Norway at the moment so we are 6hrs ahead of you in time and I had fallen asleep.
Expert:  Dr. Frank replied 10 months ago.

You can take the report and copy/paste it into google translate and get a rough translation. Edit it and send it to me or just send me the file in Norwegian and I can do it. It is hard for me to make comments on a lesion without some information. It could be irrelevant but I could tell you why they feel that way possibly. Lindsey there is no rush and I will reply to you when I see that file. You should get an email when that happens. Have a great day. Dr Frank
