Re: sharp head pains with albendazole!

Hi thanks for the posts.:) I will try the tumeric, (and lots of curry) Yes i read its good for inflammation! Hmm.. but i wonder if they have it in pill form?

I had to go to the doctor(different ones) few times before they would give me an mri. I went to many walk in clinics, and then the clinic sent me to neurologist, when i told them symptoms, and got the mri. BUt it is well worth finding out, just in case there is damage. But i read online that Ct is good also,but not as good a s Mri..

The diagnosis of neurocysticercosis was greatly improved by the introduction of computed tomography (CT) and
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These techniques demonstrate the number and topography of lesions, their stage of
involution, and the degree of inflammatory reaction of the host against the parasites and have largely replaced previous
radiological procedures such as plain roentgenograms, pneumoencephalograms, cerebral angiography and myelo-
graphy. In general, MRI provides better image detection and definition. The possibility of multiplanar reconstruction
of images, its capability to visualize the posterior fossa without bone artifacts, and its high contrast resolution (far
superior to that of CT) allow MRI to recognize many forms of cysticercosis not visualized on CT. However, the costs of
MRI are high and the equipment is scarcely available in many endemic countries, and its sensitivity for the detection of
calcified lesions is poor. CT remains the best screening neuroimaging procedure for patients with suspected
neurocysticercosis, and MRI is the imaging modality of choice for the evaluation of patients with intraventricular
cysticercosis, brainstem cysts and small cysts located over the convexity of cerebral hemispheres. Its better image
definition also suggests that MRI is superior to CT in the follow-up of the patients after therapy.

I am waiting for my scan in January. :O!
(sorry so long!) Actually feeling better, from the albenz, i think the one dose did something..but still wondering if should take the brain pain.. was scary...:(.
