Follow up with neurology and get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> second opinion if they cannot figure things out. Sometimes it takes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> time to get to the bottom of neurological problems. You need to stay closely under a doctor's care and report any new symptoms, no matter an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> odd or unrelated they seem. Good luck to you--it really stinks having to deal with this when you have a new baby.

She refuses to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> shunt because according to her doctor there is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> 40% chance success rate. I have a shunt myself, and was born with hydrocephalus. I can tell you that i dont even notice the shunt. after 27 years you forget you have it.
Thank you for responding to my question. I talked with another doctor on Justanswer and apparently my stroke was a "mini stroke" or TIa. It wasn't as deep in the brain as yours was so it didn't cause any problems. They still didnn't say why I have the dizziness though. So I guess I'll just have to learn to live with it.. Thanks for the tip about the stomach muscles --I;ll be trying it. Hope things have gotten better for you .
In case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURaTION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>er.
I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> stroke at the age of 8 and I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> siezure just l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st year at 21. My doctor said it was because of the scar tissue. I am a student becoming a physical therapist asistant, and I learned that anyone who has had some injury to the brain (concussion, tramatic brain injury etc) is at risk of having a siezure. anyways I was put on Keppra because on my mri &amp; mra it san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ed that they were lining up. I haven't had a siezure since then but it was definitely scary. I hope this helps.
I find these symptoms worrying as you feel like you are having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> stroke. all have been ittermittent/on and of everyday but not constant apart from the tongue numbness, it is painful to move my tongue and talk, feels weird. My question to the forum is: an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> anyone know if migraines hit in the same spot each time. Like my numbness on my face is always on the same area (path pattern if you like) and same with leg.

Unlike everybody else here, I am the husband and my wife had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> TIa (mini stroke) in June 2009. The reasons behind the stroke to this day have never been answered. The doctors initially tried every test (apart from the TEE - transesophogeal echocardiogram). No answers were found. The background of events behind the stroke are what we truly believe hold the answer to the event itself.
I am 33yrs old I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> stroke l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st year and I'm on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> lot of meds. I had my tubes tied 7yrs ago and now want another baby so I have to do IVF and I have to go see a maternal fetal medicine dr next week to determine if I can do IVF. I'm so scared they say I can't.
Thank you.
Thanks for your comments. My husband has the same family doctor that I have recently started seeing. That is the doctor who originally sent me to be screened for ms. Yesterday my husband had a doctor appt. and the doctor asked an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> I was doing. My husband told him the neuro said the lesions on my mri was probably due to aging. My family doctor said he was suprised by that because lesions usually do not appear in a person of my age (49).
Probably one of my most life changing symptoms is the fact of not being able to handle crowded areas such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> store like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> WalMart or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> auction house during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> auction any place with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> lot of people and a lot of visual and audio information coming in.
I had a TIa(mini-stroke) just after the first of the year. In the ER they asked if I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> living will. My DH and I looked at each other blankly...thinking, wow this coudlbe serious! I said, "Honey, don't let them turn the machines off untill they are sure." He said he'd never let them turn anything off! Ha Ha!I guess this is not enough. I went so far as to bookmark some do it yourself sites. They had our states forms. So I will if the rest of you an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> don't have them will.
I was certain I had cancer, a huge blood clot,mini strokes,was heading for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> huge stroke(still worried about that one),<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> heart attack..I mean it's very scary. I wish I had an answer for everyone, but I keep seeing the same symptoms and nobody knows what the hell it is about. The best thing you can do is remain calm.
I am so afraid that they are going to continue to get worse until I end up having a major stroke. Has anyone had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> stroke or know someone else with Lyme disease that suffered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> stroke? I have not seen much in written symptomology about causing stroke but with this disease I "never say never".
I had another one a few months later, which they blamed on me adjusting my buspar dose, and didn't ave any more until I got over heated at the air san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st weekend. When I got home I felt like I was having mini panic attacks and they would stop right before they got really bad. I took an ativan and it didn't help so it wasn't anxiety. That night I had 2 seizures in my sleep (I always seem to have 2 in a night).
They did all the normal tests MRI, MRa, and tons of blood work. although the CT scan san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ed something that they thought may have been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> mini stroke the other tests ruled it out and they diagnosed me with a silent or atypical migraine. I had all symptoms of a stroke. The numbness, tingling, drooping of the eyes and mouth on one side, no facial expressions and I could hardly talk. It has been one week and my strength is still not back on my right side and and my speech is still very slurred.

, then you need to stop. I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> friend in high school who did it once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> month or every couple of weeks for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> time (2 or 3 years) and it really messed his brain up. He's never been the same, and he's 30 years old now. He hasn't done it since those days, and never fully recovered. The reason DXM makes you "trip" in large doses is because it's a dis-associative (spellcheck?) which quite literally means that it seperates your mind from your body. DXM is a morphine derivative.
go figure) recently I have had difficulty swallowing as I feel there is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> possibility I will choke. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> headache becomes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> stroke, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> leg pain becomes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> blood clot, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> chest pain becomes a heart attack or pulmonary embolism. (** Just to inform you I know these thoughts are completely irrational and crazy, but at the time I simply cannot control them, no matter an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> hard I try) I constantly have a lump in my throat and I often cry.

I was reading a story to them aloud and suddenly my speech started to sound slurred and I felt as though it was a weak tongue, I called it my “Lazy Tongue”. This didn’t l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st too <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> and I let it go. I did not go to see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> doc. because I was young and had no idea that it could have been serious. around 3 yrs later, it happened again.
