I’d see your doctor about your ear, it’s not something I’ve experienced sorry, so I can’t help you on that one.
Regarding the MRI of the pituitary, on the very first page of this topic I think the MRI is what’s called a ‘T1 weighting’, which portrays fluid as dark, whereas if you look at the post at the top of page 3 (this page?) you will see a ‘T2 weighted’ image, showing the fluid as light. The grey area here is the pituitary. These images were taken at different times. In this one on page 3, you can clearly see the extent of the fluid above the pituitary, within the sella turcica.
Regarding the bright spot at the back of the pituitary, on the image on page one, I’m unsure what it is, though I have seen it many times on others MRI’s. Many moons ago, I read about a bright spot in the optic chiasm – but as far as I remember, that’s higher up. Does anyone else know what this bright spot is ?
