Discussions that mention tylenol

Brain & Nervous System Disorders board

I had a colloid cyst of the third ventricle removed Nov. 2000. The first MD that diagnosed the cyst told me not to worry about it. 3 years later, I was having continued horrible headaches that tylenol would only bring to an ease. One morning I awoke with "the Mother of all headaches". I went into my bathroom, turned on the light and could not see from my left eye. The cyst was resting on the optic nerve. 3 days later, I had emergency surgery to remove the cyst.

From all the material I have researched and read I know our brains cannot accomodate extra growth because of the closed encapsulating skull.

Please continue to talk to your neurologist about this matter, and if necessary, see another MD.

I wish you the best of luck, Dodi
