Ask a Neurologist and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Did all these symptoms start at same time?
Also are they worsening over time?
Do they appear together time and again and subside?
Progressive worsening and not subsiding suggest less likelihood of psychological symptoms.
When you say urinary retention, do you have urinary leakage and lack of ability to start urination?
Once you start urination, do you have good flow?Also do you have any problem in holding urine for long time?
Ok that suggests more likely prostate problem or overactive bladder problem.
Not likely neurological the bladder symptom at least.
Yes that is correct incontinence is more consistent with brain or nerve problem.
With brain disease usually there will be loss of peripheral vision ( more like tunnel vision), or there will be double vision.
Any other type of vision abnormality is less likely.
In case of brain degeneration related dementia, memory loss is not noticed by the patient himself. The patient may find difficulty in remembering events, doing complex tasks like managing finances, finding right words during conversation.
MRI scan with contrast should show degenerative brain disease as form of brain volume loss, or hippocampal atrophy or dilated ventricles for example.
