He is currently having problems with hallucinations after an EGD procedure. The hallucinations are still happening. He had the procedure on Tuesday, which was three days ago. Is this normal? If so, when will it dissolve? Thank you for your help!
I have only read the article and have not seen a patient with musical hallucinations. So, as you, I do not know how long this will go on for. However, if these hallucinations are like other senses, they should resolve overtime but how long I can not tell you. It may be many months. If the hallucinations are caused by seizures (not indicated by what you are telling me) then they may never go away. I have not seen or read about a musical aura, so I doubt the latter hypothesis.
Yes, dialysis can cause hallucinations, and so also deteriorating kidney function. Usually hallucinations and violence are seen in psychotic disorders, especially schizophrenia. Kidney failure can also precipitate schizophrenia like symptoms. The other possibility is a brain infection. Please discuss this with your nephew’s doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.

Hi, it’s unlikely its stroke. It could be a bad dream. And everybody has these occasional stressful dreams. But if they occur repeatedly or are interfering with your sleep schedules, you can consult a sleep specialist. It could be a nightmare disorder. This can be assessed by a sleep questionnaire and therapy is based on the severity of symptoms. Best Regards.
I had an ischematic stroke in August 2006, when aged 51, and since then have suffered numerous neurological 'episodes' which were initially diagnosed by the local hospital as TIA's (mini-strokes) but which I'm now informed are a rare kind of migraine. I don't get the blinding headaches that I'd normally expect with a migraine, but I do get the same sorts of symptoms you'd expect with a stroke - head floppiness, slurred speech, inability to flex the fingers of my left hand etc.
Most persistent and unchanging are lingering hallucinations. Objects wave, grow and shrink, vibrate. Tracers follow moving objects and and things begin to look 2-D, while shifting in color. The good news is i have not lost any motor control. one item of note: since this i have had blood pressure issues, once being as high as 190/96, accompanied by heart palpitations. i have since lowered it to around 160/80. before this, however, it was 120/60.

My grandmother, 92, has been having episodes of hallucinations, mostly visual, occasionally auditory. She sees animals, people and relatives she has known, or hears someone out her bedroom window. She lives semi-alone. We live in the front house, her house is in the rear. Her primary care doctor has ruled out stroke and has her on Haldol (5-10 mg.) at bedtime. She is also on Inderol, Isodril, nitro-durm patches and Choline Mag Tristate.

My Mother-in-Law suffered a Spontaneous Hemorragic Stroke on the Left Side at the Occipital Lobe...(whew!) approx 3 weeks ago. Her symptoms are unusual, so needless to say my research is bordering tedious/non-productive. I will keep it as brief as possible. She is Very fortunate that there is Not Any physical paralysis OR Any speech impediment. The 'bleed' has made a significant impact on her vision. There is also the added Anton's Syndrome. (No, a Dr.
I am a 56 year old woman and suffered two bleeding strokes while camping in the mountains, far from help. The first stroke was what I thought was a migraine. The second one two days later was more severe and I called hubby on his cell so he could come in from fishing and drive to the nearest hospital, maybe 50 miles away. THat's the last I remember. I have had many migraines in weeks previous which my doctor had blown off.
Hi I have had some extremely weird symptoms lately and my doctor looks at me like I am nuts. All of this has happened progressively over about six months. It started with having an odd feeling in my arm...sort of tingly and limp. I thought I was having a stroke, and actually thought about going to the ER but it seemed to pass. Then I started waking up in the morning with completely numb hands, and/ or shoulders. Then some part of me would fall asleep during the day....
Hello and hope you are doing well. What you are experiencing could be hallucinations and delusions and they can occur with certain medications, stress, sleep deprivation, in certain brain disorders and with schizophrenia or bipolar disorders. They can even occur due to extreme depression or dementia. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Many of the early symptoms of methanol poisoning are non-specific eg. headache, dizziness, malaise, generalized weakness, altered sensorium, acute mania, and paresthesias.
If you didn't have the spine imaged, you should talk to your doc as MS can show up there too. Hypothyroidism can certainly be a cause of your symptoms. Once treated adequately, your symptoms may improve. Another test that may be helpful is an EMG to see if this a problem of your peripheral nerves. Laboratory workup such as ANA, sed rate, blood count and electrolye profile can also help rule out other potential problems such as lupus and other rheumatological disorders.
I'm not a doctor, either, not even close, but his symptoms sound to me like those of a stroke. I don't know why a stroke, if that's what it was, wouldn't have shown up on brain imagery. Maybe it was too soon, and maybe new imagery would show something now. I just don't know about that, but he's got to have medical attention, as soon as possible.
I just went to the hospital on Easter with Stroke like symptoms and was treated as such. I am 35 years old. They did all the normal tests MRI, MRA, and tons of blood work. Although the CT scan showed something that they thought may have been a 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.
well anyway. Shakes and sweats were nothing. Visual and auditory hallucinations were quite exceptional and debilitating. Skin was on fire and all the rest. Symptoms lasted for three to four weeks. Even had to learn how to walk again. My choice the last time was to get someone to sign me into the psych ward at the hospital. I got help and support and am doing well.
Sorry to hear about your symptoms. Visuospatial problems, cognitive changes and hallucinations in a previously high-functioning individual are concerning for a progressive dementia caused by neurodegenerative diseases such as Lewy Body disease (usually has some parkinsonian features also), Pick's disease, ALzheimer's , etc... or infection such as herpes simplex virus or prion disease.
I know I want to speak (to my adult child), but all I can do is moan, point, groan, plead etc. As this goes on, I get more and more withdrawal symptoms, and have in the past, lost all ability to communicate or relate properly to medical staff etc. (by now, I've been taken to the hospital). There were also times that I experienced hallucinations as well. This has happened in varying degrees many times, however recently, my son was home when I first started feeling the inability to speak.
constant dizziness and blurred vision on one side of my head; whenever I leaned my head to the side the room would spin and I would become light-headed.) After various thyroid tests, an MRI for possible brain tumor, MS, and stroke, my MD decided it possibly could be a weird side effect of Effexor. I took 37.5 mgs for 7 days, and now have been Effexor free for 5 days. Until today I really havent had any withdrawel although my dizziness and blurry vision have remained constant.
Hello, I am writing today because I have been struggling with a lot of symptoms that I don't understand. I hope this is the correct forum to put this in and I want to thank anyone who stops by to read this for taking the time to do so. I really appreciate it. For over a month now I've been experiencing a lot of problems with my vision. I am also experiencing a lot of other things, such as dizziness, unsteadiness and vertigo.
Hi! I am a young adult female who's recently had a terrible onset of severe anxiety and panic attacks. I've suffered from migraines since I was a little girl, but one Sunday night this past April (after a busy weekend) I was laying down with a migraine about to sleep it off, when all of a sudden I felt like I couldn't suck in air & I felt this very strange/painful drop of pressure in my head. After several doctors/ER trips, everyone thinks it's a panic attack.
Hi, I am quickly learning lots of new terms as i am researching my son's recent seizures. He has had migraine with aura for some time. It is only receintly that additional symptoms started to pop up. Now my son has reported extensive visual hallucinations that have drastically been getting worse.
I've researched the possibkle side effects of these medications and they seem to have the potential to cause many of the symptoms she is complaining about. She had symptoms of early stages of Parkinson's before her sroke; could it be causing some of the problems she is currently having? she had trmors in her right hand for awhile before and about 6 weeks after her stroke. Even though they have subsided,her right hand is week and her writing looks like chicken scratches. Am I over-reacting?

After I had my daughter in 1996 I sowly started to develope symptoms... First it started with stiffining in my fingers of both hands, then migraines. Then over the years the pain worsened in my hands and started in my knees, hips, and back. I was and still am CONSTANTLY tired, no matter how much sleep I get. Then over about the ast 6 months, things have seem to have gotten worse.
Probably not a precursor to a stroke. Research Hypnopompic (?spelling) Hallucinations. Don't worry it's not pyschotic. Could also be migrainous. Doubtful it's a stroke as this would be accompanied by other symptoms which you didn't mention such as headache which wakes you in the middle of the night, loss of consciousness or speach problems. Best wishes, Sincerely, Timothy D. McGarity, M.D.
