Hopefully we will have some others with more experience comment on this post. I am still recovering from it but everything I have read says I should have already recovered from it but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> 5 days now, I'm just starting to get my balance back and strength in my left side, but it seems to come and go.
I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mini</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> behind my right eye now I have a headache all the time is this normal?I had a carotid endarterectomy on the right side of my neck dec 20th 2013 ,Feb 18 2014 started having problems with my right eye.I went to the eye dr and he sent me to my dr that did the carotid endarterectomy and he said it was a mini stroke.I have like a gray fog over my eye all the time and like northern lights in the corner.My head hurts bad sometimes and I get nauseated.
The EKG, CT-Scan and blood work all came back normal and later during the week, so did the ultrasound on my neck arteries and the echo on my heart. My internist said it could be a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mini</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> but the symptoms persist a week later, with complete numbness of the tongue and lips. He told me it might be a side effect of my anti-depressant, Pristiq, and has taken the dose down from 100mg to 50mg. I am to report in next week to let him know what my symptoms are doing.
Dr Santos. I am a 61 year old with high cholesterol. I had a terrible bout of vertigo one morning and then for about a month an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> was sick as a dog. My eyes hurt I had headaches. I was dizzy and my head felt like it was surging. I felt like I was walking sideways. I have a hard time finding words when I feel dizzy. Like i am in a fog. had an MRI that said acute lacunar infarct on my right thalmus.
Just diagnosed with complicated migraine, told the oxygen deprivation was not important. Residual symptoms - tremors, weakness, confusion, exhaustion, all psychological. ain't medicine cool? Stay away from those darn first-day-in-the-hospital Dr.s!
I told him I could be his friend, but he said he has feelings for me and liked me too much to be just friends, and that i'd distract his recovery. anyway I just wanted to know if a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mini</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> could cause hydrocephalus? He had been saying he felt dizzy, was vomiting, lost weight, headaches, felt as though he was on a boat and had sea sickness, no energy, sleeping a lot, couldn't concentrate, his vision was odd and I'm sure theres other things he told me.
Hi there! I too am a young <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> survivor with left side weakness. The arm and hand are very frustrating, aren't they? Thankfully,I had my 2 daughters before my stroke, but my youngest was only 13 months when it happened. It took awhile for her to get used to me, but with some practice I eventually was able to change diapers, bathe the girls, and now 2 1/2 years later with some more progress under my belt, I can carry my 3 year-old to bed or short distances if I need to.
I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> when I was 29...2 weeks <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'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> I gave birth to my first child. I had a bilateral carotid dissection. I am now 33 and am thinking about having another child, but none of my doctors know for sure why I had a stroke in the first place. Both my ob and neurologist think that I should be fine, but they really have never seen this before. I keep looking for other opinions....and suggestions? anyone out there that had a baby an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> a stroke?
I too had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> when I was 29...2 weeks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> I gave birth to my son...That was 4 1/2 years ago. I have been fine ever since,even though my corotid arteries are still occluded. I had a bilateral corotid dissection. I would also like to have more kids and my doctors THINK it should be ok, but there are no guarantees!!
I didn't have a brainstem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span>, but I did have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.
I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> in the cerebellum and signs of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mini</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> that they classified as 'old'. I fortunately did not have ongoing loss of speech, or weakness in limbs etc...but have suffered from weird dizziness and electric shock feelings in my head. They seem to get better - but then get wrose again....Dr's are saying it is maybe anxiety --but is not. I have had anxiety before and these are different.
as an update to my post - fyi - <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'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> seeing a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> specialist, my husband is now on Cardizem (Dialtiazem ER) and these episodes are being controlled - he can still feel them starting for a few seconds but then they seem to shut down - possible vacular spasms or something similar is what has been diagnosed - no definitive test is available to be sure. We are blessed to have found a way to control these to some degree - never give up trying.
Next day visited my GP who said it was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mini</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span>. The treating at Hospital told me that he received my MRI test report which indicated that my blindness was due to accummulated wide spread of white matter at back of my brain which blocked my vision which had resulted in my blindness.So please I would like to know whether my blindness was caused "white matter at back of my brain which blocked my vision" or due to other eye problems I had prior to MRI?
She IS still on Lamictal, taken twice a day, and Plavix with aspirin, etc. So I'm just not sure if she had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mini</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> or another seizure. So that's my question - Did she have a mini-stroke or a seizure (today)? any relevant info is greatly appreciated.
I told the doctor and he said that sometimes that happened with allergic reactions. <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'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> that I noticed that I was gaining fluid and my shirts were tight around my neck . I also had a dull pain in the back of my head were I had felt the pain the night I was in causality. I attended an immunologist approximately 3 months an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> the incident and complained to him about my headache.
31/F. Had classic symptoms of stroke, when I was taken to the ER I was told I was having a strokeby nuerologist. Right side of my body was paralyzed, and left side of face was affected. CT w/out contrast,MRI,EEG all came back negative. When reading over nuerologist notes from ER he stated that Spasticity was observed also.
He went to urgent an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>carean> again, where they said it could have been a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mini</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span>, but to go to the er, if it gets worse. The next day, he woke up feeling the same sensation, only now in his leg as well. He went to the er where it got worse to where it was very painful and his chest was in pain. He ended up having to be admitted to the hospital where he seems to be getting worse.
My mother, who is 57 and takes good <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'>c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>re</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> of her health, suffered a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span> two days ago and is in the hospital as we speak. The stroke occured in her brain stem and the top/side of her head. Through an MRI and a certain procedure I forget the name of, the doctors were able to determine the reason for the stroke on the top/side of her head, which was blockage, i believe, of the vein.
Hi - unfortunately, the baby did not have a heartbeat when they checked 8 days <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'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span>. They performed a D+C. I have a few follow-up questions for you: Would a stressful month at work lead to hypertension? You asked if my stroke was ischemic and it was. I have HSV-8 and had an outbreak 2 weeks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> the stroke. Would Moya Moya have shown up on an MRI? also, could eating a lot of foods containing Vitamin K have triggered hypercoagulation? Thank you for your help!
The headache was worse and my neck was stiff in the back. I went to the walk up <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'>c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>re</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> center and was sent to the hospital for stat CT scan. The scan was normal and was given Rx for pain. Got up next day felt even worse..still repeating words, headache, when I would bend over and get back up it felt like my head was going to explode. I was queasy and having trouble keeping my balance. Called Dr who told me to go to ER. When riding to ER when car would stop I felt like I was still moving.
