Re: Calcium build up in the brain?

Sorry to hear this. Were you having headaches or other problems that led you to see the doctor and get the CT scan?

Re: Calcium build up in the brain?

I did a little researching about calcium in the brain. It sounds like you have a complicated situation. I hope your seeing a specialist who deals with this type of medical issues such as at a major medical center. Let us know how you are doing.

Re: Calcium build up in the brain?

Have you been seen by a neurologist or a neurosurgeon? A specialist physician who can deterimine what treatment you might need.

Re: Calcium build up in the brain?

I too have multiple unusual calcifications in the brain and the doctors do not know what it is. The possibilites were a stroke, cystercycosis or a malformation. I have had 3 scans in the last 18 months and there are no changes.
I do take alot of calcium because of the osteroporosis but I don't think it is connectedd
