HI! I'm writing in on behalf of my Dad who is presently admitted in the intensive care unit of a renowned hospital in Mumbai (Bombay), India. He is 60 and it all started with mild headaches roughly from 20 Nov, 00. WE consulted a leading neurologist as dad not only had these headaches but also there were some evident changes in his general personality as in he wouldn't talk much neither could he walk much. The doc sent us for an MRI both contrast and plain, the results of which were fine (as per the docs performing the MRI and this neuro). he was given some sedatives and medication for headaches and asked to return after 3/4 days. Dad would just lie in bed all day and his headaches would gradually reduce and one day he even got up and went for a walk around the apartment. On 02 Dec Dad got this really severe headache and we knew that he had to be hospitalised immedaitely. he was admitted and since then we performed all sorts of tests an MRI once again, CT scan, Lumbar Puncture.....all this has draw to a nought. He would then fell very drowsy and it was presumed to be due to lack of Sodium content in the body, which again has since been brought to normal. The bottom line is that the docs have still been unable to diagnose the cause he has put forward three theories a) Brain Tuberculosis b) viral infection and c) some kind of a stroke. He is now on life support and is slowly deteriorating. He is very critical and any suggestions would be throughly appreciated. PLS. email me at [email protected]
