Cavernoma in Right putamen

Postby Tigerfan » Sat Nov 11, 2017 6:41 pm

Hello- I am a 47 year old female and have had muscle weakness in my right bicep since an ulnar nerve surgery in 2009. Fast forward to 2017 and a shoulder injury shed light on how little muscle is really there. A nerve test of the musculucutaneous nerve showed nerve damage. Checked my left arm and it has weakness in the bicep as well. Hand and elbow doc ordered an MRI of neck and brain and referred me to a neurologist.

Like any curious person, I read my MRI results and it showed a 9 x 8 x 8 mm cavernous malformation.
From what I have read, it seems logical my issues could be a result of the cavernoma. Anyone else have symptoms present this way? I have also had trouble finding my words for years and explained it away due to stress.

Anxiously awaiting my neurologist appointment on Thursday. Scared to death of what the future holds.........
