Customer Question
I have been having...

I have been having some issues where I feel like my brain starts to shake for a few seconds and I feel out of it, nausues, and unsteady. Then it goes away. I still feel a out of it for abt an hr after. I have an apt on the 25th but want to know if I should be concerned. My biological father died of brain cancer in his 30s, and my uncle on my moms side just got diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Unfortunately I have not because it happens so sporadically. It started about a year and ahalf ago-2 years ago and was only occurring every 3 months or so but has been happening more frequently...once-twice a month

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have an autoimmune disorder-unspecified juvenile arthritis and am 27yrs old. I take actemra infusion for the past 7 months

Have you ever had a bad conscience?
dizziness?
tremors in another part of the body?
have you been under stress?
what is your job?

I do get dizzy often, sometimes when I am standing still I get unsteady and almost fall over. Not really tremors in the rest of my body. I am under stress but this has been an issue for about 2 years, and has been getting slightly more often than before. They started before I started my current job as a dispatcher for the state police.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I actually just had one again. My brain feels like its shaking and I cannot focus, my muscles go week and I feel nauseas and out of it.
Doctor: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Dear friend, in this case it is necessary to perform a cranial CT scan.
At this moment you have several antecedents that can generate some alteration, for having an autoimmune antecedent you must look for some degeneration or cerebral atrophy.
and a family history should be looked for a tumor cause.
Your symptoms are very unspecific as it does not lead to a single cause, since in patients with migraines, labyrinths, Meniere's disease, cerebral cortex atrophy can present these symptoms.
I think you're a young man and you're very anxious about all those things that affect your nervous system, so in some cases, somatization may be important.
I suggest we perform a detailed neurological examination for better orientation, but you shouldn't be alarmed.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
