My husband 33yrs, 100kgs has been having severe head ache since 2 months. Diagnosed with hight BP was taking medicine for BP and hypertension. His CT scan report also looked normal then. One week ago he started feeling dizzy and vomiting. Was taken to the hospital wher he was treated for food poisoning. His head ache and dizzines has still not reduced. Yesterday he again vomited yellow fluid. Doctors suggested an MRI scan and CT scan. During MRI scan doctors told that there is some abnormality a the back of his brain. They could see some white patch which they told is not a clot. They think it might be some infection or an extra growth.
Thye suggested to admit him so they can conduct some more tests to see what it might be. They wanted to put him on some injections and medicine to bring the pressure in the brain down and then collect some fuid by puncturing the spine.
We did not agree for this now as we wanted to first show the report to some other doctor for second opinion.
My husband has been given some tablet for headache and vomiting. But he is still feeling dizzy.
Can you please tell me what according to you can be the reasons behind this and also suggest what we should be doing?
