Spasm of cerebral vessels, which can cause, symptoms and treatment
Spasms can occur quite early, inage, when a person does not think about illness, at 30 or slightly older, when he is full of energy and imagines that many more years of active life are ahead. The reasons for this state can be very different. Often spasm of cerebral vesselsarises from osteochondrosis, there may be other causes of the onset of the disease: overwork, stress, or lack of sleep.
Causes of spasms
Nutrition of the brain, its blood supply canbe disturbed due to the narrowing of the holes in the cervical spine, in which the arteries of the basilar artery pass (located in special holes in the vertebrae). A sharp narrowing of the lumen in the vertebrae at certain positions of the head (occlusion) or due to osteochondrosis is accompanied by a violation of the blood supply to important parts of the brain, which leads to the appearance of the above symptoms. Spasm of cerebral vessels is a serious illness that should not be ignored, it is necessary to have an ultrasound examination of the cervical spine and the passage of an MRI (magnetic resonance tomography) of the neck and head.
The cause of the disease can be an aneurysm,the emergence of which still has no common opinion in the theory of medicine. Presumably, the cause may be degenerative changes in the walls of the vessels, which contributes to the occurrence of an aneurysm, as well as the factors contributing to its change and causing hemorrhages in the brain. Spasm of cerebral vessels can cause:
- Defects in the muscular layer of the vessel.
- Damage to the elastic membrane inside it.
- Damage to the fibers in the artery itself.
- The increasing rigidity of the artery wall in combination with the decreasing thickness of the vessel.
Often spasm of cerebral vessels can beconsequence of increased blood pressure, anomalies in the development of the arterial blood supply to the brain, or the consequence of a tumor. The reasons can be different, as a consequence and signs of the above diseases, and the manifestation of the priests of ischemia or infarction. Do not delay with treatment, do not be treated yourself. It is necessary to address to the neuropathologist, and in case of the put diagnosis - an osteochondrosis, to vertebrologu.
What symptoms may indicate a spasm of the brain

In the case of an aneurysm, soreness in half (left or right) of the trunk, loss of orientation, memory dips appear, a person does not recognize relatives.
Narrowing and spasm of cerebral vessels canarise in case of a hemorrhage, the patient may be in a wakeful state, but be late with a reaction to requests and recommendations, unable to speak or whisper, food chews for a long time, keeps it in the mouth.
