but the last few day it seems that the memory and speech of getting out what he wants to say has gotten worse is the normal in the healing processes or could he have had another stroke
When I'm in a room with florescent light or outside I get nothing but white. It's not getting better, it's getting worse. Oh well sunglesses and one good eye will have to do.

Like it was tired or something. Now it is getting much much worse. Now it is to the point that I am limping all the time and it feels like it is going to fall off or disconnected from me. Like one leg is bigger than the other - really I don't know how to explain it...I can just feel it. Okay well mainly it feels like I am going to have a "drop attack" (had those before my first chiari surgery), and like I could fall to the ground at any moment.
I have no other symptoms or problems such as dizziness, tingling, fainting, numbness, etc. and my vision is fine, however I have noted that of late it is getting worse, but no severe changes. Again, my many thanks !!!
He went to urgent care again, where they said it could have been a mini-stroke, 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.
I just wanted to add, that you know your body better than anyone else and if it was a TIA/Mini Stroke, those are temporary and usually do not show up on x-rays but people that do have TIA's have something like a 30% chance of having another TIA or actually stroke within the following year. So you really need to be aware of stroke symptoms and if you get any of these symptoms you need to go straight to the ER.
I have been having chest pain, a heaviness with shortness of breath for several months, with symptoms getting worse. I have dizzy spells, very often during the day, have some pain under the rib area, It seems worse with exertion. I have had a thallium stress test, that showed no blockage, but some irrigularities, don't know what yet, have appointment next week with a cardioligist. On a ER visit, had CT scan with dye, nothing found.
All of my tingling is still there (actually getting worse), I have constant headaches and am always fatigued. I get muscle weakness on a daily basis. I am having a hard time believing that the calcification has nothing to do with it. My initial thoughts when I first had something similar happen last year, was MS. MRI showed now lesions. Any ideas? Thanks!
I have noticed no correlation between the occurrence of the episodes and any other conditions, other than the progression of the stroke- like symptoms in and around the time of the racing episodes. A neurologist that I saw Tuesday ruled out MS and other neurological conditions, based on several clear MRIs, nerve conduction tests, and lumbar puncture results. He said that all of my symptoms were likely due to an electrial misfire in my heart.
my condition is called electromagnetic sensitivity and test like MRI and CAT scans which are very high in radiation only make the symptoms worse. Best of luck and feel free to write with any furhter questions.
All you can really do at this point is try to stay calm ( easier said than done) until you get your results on Thursday. If the symptoms you have been experiencing get worse I would go to the ER to be checked.
Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle.

I have been having more mini-strokes lately so that may account for the symptoms getting worse and more loss of eyesight. You may want to get a neuropsych evaluation that will help pinpoint where the damage is. My damage was to the left frontal and subcortical lobes back then. In 2004 I didn't even know who my kids were and have been listed as having mild/moderate dementia since then.
People I love have had major strokes that rendered them unable to move or speak and left them hospitalized for months while they regained use of the side of their bodies effected. An acquaintance of mine is always looking for attention because of his lonely life. He was posting one night, two weeks ago, and the next morning posted that he was in the middle of a massive stroke". He said he was dizzy and it was difficult to swallow.
The neurologist thinks these headaches are migraines and not related to the stroke, but he also says that the headache symptoms she describes are not typical in migraines. Could her headaches and cerebellum stroke be related also? I'm concerned that the doctor is being too quick to assume the stroke occured before birth when he also says that an MRI can NOT show the age of a stroke.
My mother had a stroke in july (massive) appetite has gotten worse over time. Mom is now in a nursing home and says she cannot eat. She is able to swallow minced food but is suffering from a severe loss of appetite. She says either, she is full, the food is too sweet, she can"t get it down, she makes repulsed faces before she even gets it into her mouth. She cries that she can't eat. She is peg fed at night. She often throws up, water.
The MRI showed no signs of a stroke and no damage to the brain. The nuerologist simply said he had symptoms of a stroke but the MRI didn't conclusively show anything. He simply said they would treat it as a stroke because he didn;t have any answers as to what was really going on. Lather that night, my dad stated that the pins and needles were getting worse in his hand and feet as well as up his right arm.
I stopped seeing my family doctor all together now for over a year but my symptoms are getting worse and far more intense. There’s been days where I felt I must go to the hospital but fear it would be all for not. There is about an 8 hour wait just to get into emerge in my area and unless with have a condition that they can treat right away then they usually send you home without answers. They just say "go see your family doctor.
It comes and goes throughout the day, but more often than not, either my left hand is numb or my vision is spotty and distorted or both- oddly enough, I have noticed that caffeine appears to make the symptoms dramatically worse. What have I done and how can I resolve this ASAP?
5 for the last 3 nights but I was as you say trying to do it to quickly and my symtoms are getting worse again. I think I will heed your warning and go a little slower for at least the next week or so. I was thinking of never taking another one after last night but now that I read your post I know its not just me and i will slow it up some.
This was four years ago and symptoms are getting worse (plus inflammation is also progressing. Thanks for your response!
Does a relation exist between a hemorrhagic stroke causing Vasculitis on the affected side? After a stroke in 2005, doctos are at a loss of why Sed Rate keeps increasing and recovery is getting worse (I have tested negative to Lupus and MS.).
For the past 4 days I have been feeling really off. At night it hits me worse. I feel my insides shaking, I go from hot and sweaty to chilled and shivering, my blood pressure rises to 163/111, my pulse runs at 97 to 99. I feel fuzzy in my vision not blurry just fuzzy...like I'm not awake all the way. I have small pains in my right foot, and feel itchy at times. I went to the dr. and they sent me to the ER. I had chest xrays, EKG, urine testing and everything came back clean.
