Avatar n tn When I'm in a room with florescent light or outside I get nothing but white. It's not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting better, it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span>. Oh well sunglesses and one good eye will have to do.

Avatar f tn Like it was tired or something. Now it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting much much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span>. 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 don't want my life in danger nor the baby , will my doctor do this for me ?.
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span>, but no severe changes. Again, my many thanks !!!
Avatar n tn He went to urgent care again, where they said it could have been a mini-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span>, but to go to the er, if it gets <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span>. 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.
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span> within the following year. So you really need to be aware of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> and if you get any of these symptoms you need to go straight to the ER.
659608 tn?1318292966 I have been having chest pain, a heaviness with shortness of breath for several months, with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span>. 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.
Avatar f tn All of my tingling is still there (actually <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span>), 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!
580765 tn?1274922960 I have noticed no correlation between the occurrence of the episodes and any other conditions, other than the progression of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span>- like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> 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.
Avatar f tn my condition is called electromagnetic sensitivity and test like MRI and CAT scans which are very high in radiation only make the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span>. Best of luck and feel free to write with any furhter questions.
Avatar f tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> you have been experiencing get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span> I would go to the ER to be checked.
500374 tn?1210075013 I have been having more mini-strokes lately so that may account for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span> 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn The neurologist thinks these headaches are migraines and not related to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span>, but he also says that the headache <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> 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.
Avatar n tn My mother had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span> in july (massive) appetite has gotten <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span> 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.

You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional.

Avatar m tn The MRI showed no signs of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span> and no damage to the brain. The nuerologist simply said he had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span> 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.
Avatar m tn I stopped seeing my family doctor all together now for over a year but my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span> 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.
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> dramatically <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span>. What have I done and how can I resolve this ASAP?
Avatar n tn 5 for the last 3 nights but I was as you say trying to do it to quickly and my symtoms are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span> 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.
368646 tn?1208397487 This was four years ago and symptoms are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>worse</span> (plus inflammation is also progressing. Thanks for your response!
368646 tn?1208397487 Does a relation exist between a hemorrhagic stroke causing Vasculitis on the affected side? after a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stroke</span></span> in 2005, doctos are at a loss of why Sed Rate keeps increasing and recovery is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>get</span>ting worse (I have tested negative to Lupus and MS.).
