Signs of mild stroke treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Signs of mild stroke treatment


Avatar_n_tn I went to the PCP and Neurologist two days later and had an MRI 5 days later and they saw a stroke in the cerebellum and signs of a mini stroke 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.
Avatar_n_tn An noteworthy area of increased signal intensity in the left medial occipital lobe. There is no bleeding into the lesion on the gradient-echo study. The lesion is in the superior bank of the calcarin cortex and to a lesser extent into the parietal region, consistent with her inferior contralateral visual field loss. The area had increased signal intensity on the diffusion weighted image, but I do not see a similar dark area on the ADC map, raising curiosity that this area is somewhat older.
Avatar_n_tn I recommend keeping a journal of events-- then you can look back for patterns. A stroke can mess up ways of processing information, of communicating. The stroke person and the significant others need to learn to communicate anew which can be done with good humor and attention. My mother can't get pronouns we've joined her in screwing them up and we now rely on context more than precision of language.
Avatar_n_tn Unfortunately docotrs and therapists do not know nothing they do not even have a progressive treatment for stroke in US hospitals. Just for curiosity go to and read about stroke treatment and you will understand what am I talking about. Sorry that I do not sound to positive but I went through too many stages of her strokes and spoke with too many doctors to ubderstand that I know more then some of them. Funny, ah?
Avatar_f_tn I don't have any family history of glaucoma - only of heart disease and stroke. My grandmother lost all vision in her left eye as a result of a "blood clot". I have no visual field defects and the RNFL in both eyes are "borderline", so I see the ophthalmologist again in a few months to see if there is progressive damage. I have a few questions after doing some reading on the topic: 1. How are decisions regarding NTG treatment made? Is wait and see an option? 2.
Avatar_f_tn I suspect an EMG is next, but i would still like to know from an outside source what some of the possible causes of upper motor neuron signs (along with the sensory signs). ALS usually doesn't give sensory signs that I know of. (I am a 43 year old female with a 10 year history of extreme fatigue, some elelvated body temp,and nightime myoclonus). Any info. greatly appreciated!
Avatar_m_tn If you are e-positive then the end of treatment is becoming e-negative. If you are e-negative then the end of treatment is less clear and needs further discussion.

Avatar_m_tn He had arrythmia's all the time and had a CVA at the age of 48. He died of CHF at the age of 66. We found out at his funeral that his sister was diagnosed with IHSS and died the following year of CHF. He had another sister who also had a CVA and died in her early 60's of CHF, and his brother had a CVA and died of CHF at the age of 62. My aunt (father's sister) family have been tested (ECHO) three of the six children have HCM.
Avatar_n_tn No headache, nausea, muscle weakness, bels palsy or any of the other signs of stroke. I'm 38 and otherwise healthy. I have had some jaw pain the last few weeks. My dentist says I grind my teeth. I have been under a fair amount of stress lately. It's not debilitating, I'm just not sure how concerned I need to be. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks.
748543_tn?1443740527 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar_n_tn IV tPA can be dangerous if used too late, or for too large a stroke, or in the presence of a CT scan showing signs of an early infarction. It would also be an unnecessary risk if the stroke is too mild, or rapidly improving, or if there is diagnostic uncertainty about the event. The benefit of IV tPA is increasing modestly the number of patients that will eventually have a good outcome.
Avatar_f_tn As the disorder progresses, muscle weakness can evolve into paralysis.
Avatar_f_tn Instruct your family about the signs of a stroke. Just go to any stroke website that will describe them to you. I am normally very sensitive to the slightest change in my body, but that morning I woke up paralzyed on my right side and then could not tell the cleaning lady what to do in the detail that I wanted to give her. I could still talk some. I just had to point at things. A friend of mine also had a stroke who couldn't talk all day and didn't realize anything was wrong with her.
Avatar_f_tn Was diagnosed as a spinal stroke - vet said some dogs recover without any treatment. Sounds like your case, keep encouraging him, but don't over work him. In our Golden's case he was not able to walk or use his hind legs for some days and we'd used a sheet under his stomach to hold up his rear so he go do toilet outside. Happily the weather was still mild.
Avatar_m_tn Hope this helps, please keep us informed, and we likewise of any further developments. Thanks Dave n Nicola 3years ago I had a mild stroke, and since that day, ive been having TIA type attacks near daily. WHY? I need answers and help PLEASE. Hi my name is Dave. I am requiring any help feedback, as to whether anyone else seems to have or have had recurring stroke like symptoms, 3years after a small stroke. With the help of my wife and others, I have compiled this.
Avatar_n_tn he has been under a great amount of stress lately and i suspect that he is perhaps haveing a mild stroke. Yet dispite all that has happened he still refuses to go to the Doctor. it would help if i have documentaton of stroke symptoms. and i plan to call 911 if he refuses once more. Thanks for your question. There are indeed quite a number of points of concern in your father's scenario: 1.
Avatar_f_tn I am due to see a 'Neuro-Physio' who has stated i am to be treated for Mild Hemiplegia. Does a mild stroke/Meningitis always show on a scan? Could these symptoms be the cause of an unseen head injury from my accident 2years ago? Something is obviously wrong but i am not receiving treatment due to all tests being clear. Any help would be greatly appreciated as there does not seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel!
Avatar_f_tn The fact that Im sitting here, posting a comment on a stroke survivor page speaks volumes of what is, and of what could had been. Will I ever be back to most likly not. However, I am leaps and bounds beyond my starting point, and even if I didnt improve at all, I still gave my recovery my best...refused to give up. no matter what. A lot of those days weren't pretty, stuck up on a physical or mental plateau but thats life right? Make the best out of what you've got!
Avatar_m_tn Cocodamol and Paracetamol for pain management. However from the moment I had this mild stroke I have been getting recurring stroke like type symptoms, for now 3years after from 3 to 7days a week during my sleep and frequently during the day. Initially my left leg had a small shake uncontrollably, however since being prescribed Pregabalin in the 1stsix months,its virtually stopped.

695000_tn?1316139648 I was not motivated by fear to start treatment. I was motivated as a result of educating myself through the reams of literature I read (New England Journal of Medicine; Journal of Multiple Sclerosis; Journal of Neurology; etc) which favour early treatment to potentially prevent irreversible neurologic damage. Forgoing DMD treatment and hoping for the best was not the right choice for me.
Avatar_m_tn At what time does the clock start counting down until the end (can a person have lung cancer for 2 years, have NO signs of cancer AND still be living) 2. How long does he have 3. When the end is near, will there be any signs or could there be none I’ve read many posts on the internet regarding Stage 4, people saying that a person had died after finding out 3 months, 2 weeks, 1 year, etc. I’m confused at what point did the clock start when the end came.
Avatar_n_tn If they are, it could represent a stroke. However, the location of the brain lesions doesn't exactly explain your symptoms. Depending on exactly where the pons lesions is (I would have to personally review the films and examine you to make an accurate diagnosis) it's a possibility that the left sided weakness could be due to that, but it would be more typical for the symptoms to be on the right side of the body due to crossing fibers.
139792_tn?1447663565 e in you are insulted by somebody, visualize that you were apriciated.. Of cource this will be faking. Fake it till you make it. that should be the sloggan.In this way one can reduce the effect of trauatic events and be from the past garbage. Similarly all the failures should be turned into successful.Here also faking is used to vonvert the failures into cuccess.Some plausible story has to be formulated and convert the result into success.
Avatar_n_tn I think you should get your current symptoms properly checked out as they may well be the signs you are asking about. A TIA is a warning of a stroke wanting to happen & you don't want to go there. Also please pull back & rest when you have symptoms or fatigue, it's your body saying "enough". Brain injuries seem to create fatigue unlike any other fatigue we have know.
Avatar_n_tn Hi, Consulting the dermatologist it is Miliaria profunda, what sort of treatment should I get, shall I stop workout in the Gym and squash.
Avatar_f_tn There are doctors visits and tests that should be performed for proper monitoring of blood level during treatment. It is good that you are determined to rid yourself of the virus before it has life-long affects on your life. Good luck with your decision!
147426_tn?1317269232 Says MRI shows well delineated white matter changes. I show signs of a neurological disease...possibly demyelinating. She isn't quite ready to dx me, but says she will follow me. Which is all I've really wanted!!!! Sorry I wasn't so brief. But, I think my story is unique. I have become more and more disabled finally getting SSDI after a three year fight. I know something is terribly wrong and I just want answers and treatment. So, Quix, I think you are right in your assessment.
