Hi everyone

I was recently diagnosed with an AVM in my left frontal lobe which was ONLY found with an MRI with contrast dye. It is currently 4 cm and has the potential to continue growing and/or bleed out into the surrounding tissue.

I've had and still have vision problems, horrible migraines, headaches on a daily basis, numbness in arms and legs, poor circulation in arms and legs, pain over the eye which swells and changes colors..etc.

These symptoms are not normal!

I suffered all of my life with these symptoms trying every medication possible only to be told that my headaches and other saymptoms were stress or food related.

Brain malformations, if diagnosed, have the potential to be life threatening if not treated or monitored.

So whether you just began experiencing these symptoms or whether you have had them all of your life, please check into getting an MRI with contrast. It will show more than a regular brain scan.
