I know that I'm sure I will be told to ask this to the neurosurgeon, and I will, but I was hoping if someone could kindly explain a rational explanation if they could. I have been having lower back pain for about 5 years (am 35 y/o male), and this past Nov., I had three of those crazy seizures back to back to back. About one month after having the seizures, my lower back was killing me bad and I could barely walk. I can walk now, although I am still in pain. I had an MRI of my lumbar back, and it revealed that I have a small midline posterior disc herniation that touches the anterior surface of the thecal sac, degenerative disc at this level, as well as a 10 mm size high signal T2 and low signal T1 on the right side of the canal at the mid S1 level, which at minimum, is a perineural cyst and potentially a nerve sheath tumor. I have to have a follow up MRI with contrast to look into or rule out the nerve sheath tumor. But also, I am also having a weird sensation, that feels like someone is prodding the right side of my upper head with a needle, along with constant ringing of the ears, more on my right ear, constant headaches, etc. Now, given that your CNS involves both your spine and your brain, I am wondering if there could potentially be some cyst or tumor in my head that is causing this. When I was hospitalized for the seizures, apparently I had a CT scan of my brain, but I am wondering if they looked carefully at the covering of my brain carefully to explore any potential lesions that aren't terribly large. I know this is a lot, but maybe someone could point me into the right direction. Not that I am trying to jump ahead of myself, but say if I were to potentially have a schwannoma in my lower back - couldn't that also mean that something traveled up or down my spine and is also growing in my head? Should I request the images of the CT scan to have them reviewed again? Bottom line is that someone in their 30's doesn't get back to back to back seizures for the first time in their life. It's a convoluted situation. Thanks, and looking forward to some insight here. And yes, I know that cancers of the spine and neck can cause seizures.
