Avatar m tn My physician diagnosed as a case of psychosis and gave haloperidol and planned for CT/MRI next day. In CT it was found that he had acute ischemic infarct on bilateral mesial frontal lobe and corpus callosum. He was given anti stroke treatment such as LMW Heparin and others along with haloperidol. There was improvement on part of recent forgetfulness but little effect on irritability and restlessness. Then after 1 month he developed excessive salivation,tremors(hand and perioral).
Avatar n tn This seems like a very complex situation especially for her doctors, so it's difficult to answer some of these things given the limitations of this venue, but I'll try to give you some information that may answer your questions. It sounds like your sister has had an acute event with progression or a series of acute events in succession.

Avatar n tn While a real central post-viral syndrome (ADEM = acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis), and real peripheral post-viral syndromes (Guillain- Barre syndrome and neuralgic amyotrophy) exist, the existence of a myalgia-chronic fatigue syndrome following viral infection is certainly quite debatable. A cervical disc herniation, no matter how severe, should affect neither BAER nor VER.
Avatar n tn Depending on how an MRI scan is completed it can show both acute and chronic strokes. Radiologists comment on the fact that there is no acute stroke either to indicate that they did special imaging to look for an acute stroke, or because this is a common reason to obtain a MRI of the brain. Chronic strokes can be seen with standard MRI techniques, and therefore the comment normal MRI excludes the presence of chronic strokes.
Avatar f tn This is the only MRI done since his initial stroke. The MRI showed old infarct in pons area + acute infarct in anterior portion of corpus callosum + subacute infarct in the other side of the corpus callosum. It also showed lesions in the thalamic portion + basil ganglia. The neurologist resident stated that my dad had a TIA (or stroke) 2 weeks prior to his stroke on February 19,09 (at home-it was never noticed).

Avatar n tn My mother recently suffered an acute stroke after a mini-stroke two weeks earlier. While at the hospital the neurologist told our family that had they known she had atrial fibrillation in her first mini-stroke, they would have prescribed coumadin and the acute stroke would likely have been prevented. I was told by a geriatric nurse practitioner friend that they should have done the Holter EKG rather than the short EKG as it would have detected the atrial fibrillation.
Avatar n tn Its quite similar to what we narcotic people know as PAWS (post acute withdrawal syndrome) and is very real. In fact thats where the term "dry drunk" came from. People would quit drinking and then much later would exhibit the signs of a drunk. But they had been "dry" - not drinking.

A bleeder and it affected 25 % of her left side brain. she is having severe headaces. Can't move her right side, can't eat or drink. The drs. are going to start intense rehab. Is there a chance for recovery or are we just biding time. I want to give her every chance possible. I quess I may be in a state of shock just looking for answers.
Avatar m tn If my memory serves me right, acute ischemic event is just the medical jargon for a stroke. Congratulations, it looks like you are in the clear.
Avatar n tn Rapid assessment of acute ischemia is critical for the management of acute stroke patiens who may benefit from thrombolytics or neuroprotective therapeutics. Differentiation of acute from chronic stroke, which may all appear hyperintense on T2- Weighted Imaging(T2WI ), is essential in determining the management of patiens.
Avatar m tn In the case of acute infections such as Ebola, or more commonly in the flu syndrome, there may be one episode, which The creation of dysfunctional viruses by ozone offers unique therapeutic possibilities. http://www.triroc.com/sunnen/topics/virology.
Avatar n tn Acupuncture treatment, used in its aftermath and recovery period can also be used in the acute phase. In recent years a large number of shows, stroke acupuncture treatment time is very important, no matter what type of stroke should seek early treatment. In addition, some recent acupuncture workers started to attach importance to the cause of stroke and certain mental obstacles to the treatment of mental disorders.
