White spots on CT Scan
An_253073 posted:
I know, of course, that no one can give me a medical diagnosis based on the following information- but, before I can see my doctor, I need to know something.
I ended up getting a ct scan because of a sudden "thunderbolt and lightening" awakening that turned into one of the worst headaches of my life. I didn't see a doctor about the headache until I couldn't function- lights were hurting my eyes, sounds, moving.
The one slide that stuck out to me and my untrained eye is the with 3 or 4 white spots in the middle of my brain that look like one large spot from one picture, to several in the next, and then slowly fade out.
What could these spots be or be an indicator of?
To note:
*They told me I had a migraine, but it is my first and has now succeeded in lasting more than 15 days, none stop
*I have a tingley feeling on the back of my head, along with pain through out my head, like a vice.
*I have hypertension, controlled with medication.

Can anyone give me a little insight, hope or just plain shared experience?
