I too, like all of the other comments, Have ACM Type 1. About 9 years ago, I started having horrible unbearalbe pain in my head. I went to the hospital 2 times, before they figured it (2 days in a row), however, after putting me through a spinal tap and 2 cat scans, they told me I had a brain tumor! I had to see a neuorsuregeon the next day. He told me not to worry, it was not big enough, just to have it check anually to see if it grew. I had it checked 2 years later, they said the "TUMOR" was still there, not any bigger, and "don't worry, keep having the MRI's" they are expensive and I went along time with out having one. Then one day, I got horrible symtoms that have not stopped & they said it was not a tumor, I had ACM type 1. Don't worry though, it is only 7 mm. It is not causing your symptoms. I have been to several doctors in a circle, they refer me to each other. They also said that the MRI showed that I had panisinitus (severe sinus infection) after several rounds of antibiotics, they said it was clear on the CAT scan, 2 of the doctors told me that, the 3rd one said, it is still there, I am reading the results right here. Nice, Can't anyone ever tell the truth, I think it is half the ACM and half the sinus infection, due to the symptoms I am having. Anyway, I had MRI's and CAT scans when I was little and there were no signs of any trauma or ACM or "BRAIN TUMOR!". It wasn't until I was older that anything showed. I had a car accident and stuff, in which could have caused it, they said.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
