Stroke symptoms shaking

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms shaking

stroke

I worked it by rubbing it and shaking it alot but while I was doing that I also got a sudden burst of numbness in the right side of my nose and mouth. The tongue became only slightly numb. This only lasted a few short minutes but made me go nuts at the same time. I have a 3 year old son who is very much a "Mommy's boy" and tend to hold him alot. I'm just wondering if he may be the cause to the numbness or if it really could be stroke related.
2 /12 years agao my step-father began having stroke-like symptoms. He lost his balance, stopped walking, began choking when swallowing, etc. He went to 2 different neurologists, both id MRI's and neither found anything. Both had the same conclusion, its degenerative, one said maybe hereutary, go home and die. Last month, he began having swelling in his face and arms. He had a chest x-ray and found a lump. He was diagnosed with Small-cell lung cancer.
My girlfriend started having these shaking spells a few weeks ago. It started out with just her hands/forearms...shaking like the muscles were spasming...and now it has started turning into her whole body shaking at night. Most of the time it happens after she goes to sleep. Last night it was so bad that I tried waking her up, and it took almost ten minutes to get her to sit up and be able to talk to me... and she was still having the tremors the whole time.
When I was a teenager I had what they called a "mini-stroke" couldnt move either side of my body, severe pain, terrible headache. Besides a slightly crooked smile I fully recovered with the help of a naturopath. Since then I have had two episodes where it feels like my brain is shaking/vibrating. While it happens I cant focus my eyes, my balance is off and I have to hold on to stay standing. It lasts probably less than a minute and leaves me with a slight headache.
My brother was just sent to hospital for what we thought was a slight stroke. He was shaking uncontrollably, sweating, lack of memory, and just acting very strange; he also said he had a lot of excessive rectal bleeding with extremely runny stool. He is on 4 types of medication (2 for a slight irregular heartbeat problem, high blood pressure, and cymbalta, may have misspelled these).
Hi, These symptoms could be due to heat exhaustion and dehydration because symptoms of heat stroke are quite severe and long lasting. I would suggest you to wear a hat when venturing out in the sun and drink plenty of water to avoid this from happening again. Take care!
About 4 months ago my son and I were cooking dinner and I got some pressure in my eyes and between above my nose... I got a little disoriented and lightheaded and leaned on the counter.... then I couldn't move the whole right side of my body for a few minuets... I don't know how long but I was so freaked out... I started thinking of what my mom said ABC's and that commercial about not being able to brush my own hair so I got as calm as I could and tried as hard as I could to move...
She recently had a CT scan to check for stroke damage and has been told she has severe vascular disease causing mini strokes (possibly?) - but can the symptoms include shaking? We have mentioned to Dr's that her right hand sometimes shakes, now her right leg and the other day her whole body shook whilst standing up nearly causing her to fall. It passes after a short time. It doesn't seem to be connected to her other illnesses and i can't help feeling the Dr's are missing something else.
i to have the shaking on the inside this started after i had a thyroid lobectomy had loads of blood tests, only thing showing is raised white cells, had three lots of antibiotics no change still getting them, my whole body feels like it is shaking but no one can see it, i hate it. The doctor is sending me to see a neurologist i hope he can figure this out, i feel like i am going mad as i know its there but no one can see it. my thyroid function is normal, so are all other blood tests.
They are use to me hop a long harry lol with my feet on a stool, but today i was weak and tired on the onset and i got this shaking jaw which i have had many a time but normally at home only once in public when i went to A&E with bad vertigo and after the shot in the bum lol i was ok and the shaking stopped too.
I saw my neuro today and it didn't turn out well. After I told him the symptoms I've been having he did pretty much a full neuro exam again (haven't been there in well over a year). He had told me last year he was testing for MS, so I knew that much. But during the exam and before he even looked at the recent brain MRI he said he doesn't think it is MS and doesn't know what it is, maybe anxiety. He saw that when my arms are outstretched my hands tremble violently.
My mom had a stroke in 2005. She progressed from the stroke until about 2007 when all of the past symtoms came back (equilibrium, gait, etc.dystonia where she no longer has use of her arm). We have 5 neurologists and each have told us she has not had another stroke, but they have not been able to diagnose the downfall in her health. They have attributed it to parkinsonism and menieres, although one contradicts the other. The issue to address is a chronic pain and pressure in her head.
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. It happened again last night and I'm getting scared.
Walked over to the fridge got the door open about 2 inches when I started shaking and convulsing and ended up on the floor face down and weak almost completely cleaned off the counter and stove this is not the first time it has happened and I want it to stop ... Any ideas what it is ?
I had to lift it with the right one and move it and my left hand kept shaking. I broke this arm, two years ago and thought that it was reinjured but since talking with a friend, I wonder if I didn't have a minor stroke while undergoing the surgery. My whole left side felt weak but since my left leg was opened up and a vein removed, I didn't think much about it until now. Does this sound like a minor stroke? Any ideas what could have caused this would be of great interest to me.
About a year later I had another episoode and went to the hospital, this time it was a little worse, all the other symptoms plus weakness and shaking. Another Neurologist ran another MRI-no change. He did all those push, pull, squease, toe heal, follow the pen tests. Then he tells me it isn't MS, isn't strokes, its coming from migrane. He put me on Topomax and the problems were worse.
What's the difference between a TIA and a Stroke? With a TIA they say your supposed to recover from all the symptoms within 24 hours. My question is that true for everyone? Does it take some people to recover longer than others? just curious?
So we finally had proof that it wasn't an overdose or over release of medication in his symptoms. However, these new seizures began coming every 3 to 4 days. He would first begin staring in space, then you could see the left side of his face drooping, then his hands would curl into a partial fist and his shoulders will droop forward. His speech gets impaired and he is extremely slow to respond. His vision is impaired, says he sees double, he gets very cold and is very unsteady on his feet.
I am not a medical professional - just a person who has had a few neurological glitches. The first symptoms sound like seizure activity, to me. The language, numbness sounds strokish. My second stroke set off seizure activity and they couldn't figure out what was going on because it was not "typical" seizure and not "typical" stroke. Later, they found that I had a stroke that set off the seizures. The CTScan, as usual, didn't find the stroke.
I'm not a medical doctor, so I would definately suggest seeing a doctor. Couple possibilities though...one might be a reaction to the new meds. You might want to see if your new med has increased side effects during intense activity. Secondly could be "heat stroke" which often has some of the symptoms you described (neurological in nature) and would explain why gatorade seems to cure it, at least the initial symptoms. Possible that your new med is increasing dehydration?
I am 34 and had a stroke during my 25th week of my pregnancy. I had AVMs. I had my first stroke at 25 also by an AVM. I was told by my neurosurgeon it was ok to get pregnant but I don't think any human can predict if its safe to have children if you had a previous stroke. Now the doctors say its up to me if I want to try again. They just don't know. I am in the same boat wanting to know if their are others out their that had an ok pregnancy after a stroke.
My father had a similar sounding stroke on Dec. 8, 2006. He seemed pretty alert, spoke well, could swallow, etc. His major problems were left side paralysis and double vision. After about three weeks, he took his first steps and within 2 weeks of that was walking 40 feet with a walker. He was not able to start moving his left hand until about 4 weeks in. At that point, he could move all fingers and make a loose fist.
probably not a stroke but a neurological problem of a different type. eyes rolling in the back of the head what do you mean exactly? left side of the body paralyzed do you mean it literally? you can't use the arm and the leg on that side?
This is more for my records, but if anyone has any thoughts on any of it...do share.
He can't cut any food that takes any effort blames the food or utensil every time, he is extremely slow in dressing himself, can't put his belt through loops anymore, can't write hardly only a tiny bit and its so small you can hardly read it, he is so slow in a lot of ways, he drags he feet and stoops, he has pee on his pants after he visits the loo (every time) wondered if from the shaking? it takes him so long to do anything i.
I had a stroke caused by the medication risperdal. My dr. was very negligent in giving it to me. She took me off the meds that were woking cold turkey which is a no-no as well. 1mg clonapin 3 times a day to none overnight. This alone is dangerous but to then prescibe me ridsperdal on top of that is attempted manslaughter. If I had the money I would sue them. Has anyone else had a stroke due to risperdal? It has been 6 months and I am recovering.
When the stroke happened, I ignored my symptoms and they went away. Just to be on the safe side I saw my family doctor 3 days later, and he immediately sent me to emergency where I had blood work and CT scan, which showed I had a stroke. I asked if there was any connection between my nose injury and stroke, and told there was none.
My sister-in-law had a hemorrhagic stroke with a intracerebral hemorrhage. This was on May 18th. They have done a Ventriculostomy. The gas man found her in the driveway. We figure it had been somewhere between 20-35 mins. before she was found. They have her in a medically induced coma where they say she will stay for the next 3-4 weeks. Is this normal? Also, they did a cat scan on the 18th, and 19th and we were told the bleeding had stopped.
