Common Questions and Answers about Brain stroke pictures


Avatar m tn Hello Dear Respectful Doctors my Father ( 59 year old Orthodontist whom is not diabetic nor hypertensive but has general neuro weakness all over his body developing since the last 2years) was admitted into the emergency department one week ago after he developed what the Doctors first diagnosed as Stroke then Transient Ischemic Attack and then unknown due to the CT Scan and MRI showing nothing according to the neurologist present, he was sitting on the couch normally speaking when suddenly he fe
Avatar n tn My Dad, age 70, just suffered an ischemic stroke on the left side of his brain. He was at the hospital within 2 hours of the stroke, but the medicine to dissolve the blood clot didn't seem to have much affect. Right after the stroke he had no movement on the right side of this body, could not speak, and was having trouble swallowing. We have seen very small improvements...he is mostly swallowing on his own, he has said the odd word (but not when he tries)....thats about it.
Avatar n tn The physical functions return to normal once the brain edema subsides and hematoma dissolves, but sometimes if the stroke is severe it may take longer.
Avatar m tn Did you get a copy of the report? The report itself would tell you exactly what those white items are or how it was read. I am only a layman - but after a stroke, that is likely white matter ischemia from the stroke. I don't know about the black circles. Please get a copy of the report from the imaging center or your doctor.
1138565 tn?1297104312 I have pictures posted on my profile of my MRI, and was wondering if anyone could tell me why I have a white spot on the back of my brain? This MRI was taken one year after I had the symptoms of a stroke which included nausia, pain in my legs, inability to speak, numbing of my nose which then spread to my entire face, and weakness. The symptoms started one by one, and lasted a total of 30 minutes. Since then, the left side of my face doesnt move like the right side does when I smile.

Avatar n tn Hi Robbie, Yes you did have a small stroke. Your headaches are common after a stroke no matter how big or small the stroke its. The bad thing is that a headache caused from your stroke is that there is not much to do about it. I had monster headaches after my stroke. The good news is that it will go away in time. Your brain is re-wiring itself around the dead spot and all of the extra activity are probably causing the headaches.
Avatar f tn I recenly had a stroke, I now having spasm in my brain and they go down to my right side of neck ,arm , shoulder. The muscle do not contract , you can even see it,it feels like my head is on fire and wants to explode.
Avatar f tn My stroke doctor has told me that my basal ganglia has been affected by multiple strokes. I have had 12 CT brain scans and one MRI brain scan. Now he says I am no to have any more and for him to be notified whenever I am taken to hospital. I read that basal ganglia problems can be caused by radiation, so I am thinking that this is the reason for my problems-which affect my brain activity and walking.
Avatar n tn I have Fibromyalgia and was having some real bad headaches and quite by accident they found a 6mm brain anyurism on my interior cartorid artery. My neuro doc said many people have them and they need no treatment but I have to go once a year and have the CT to make sure there are no changes. Please insist on all the tests you want to ease your mind and be thourogh.
Avatar f tn That would be due to the stroke. Strokes affect your brain and body! If you had a stroke then it will take time to recover, just give it some time. I know it is frustrating and I know you want to get back to normal give it some time and work hard at it.
Avatar f tn t imagine anyone going through all those motions while in the process of having a stroke. Only someone who studies the brain, would be able to describe it like that. Even though they always said she didn't, I believe my Auntie had a series of small strokes, which ultimately caused her dementia.
Avatar f tn my husband had a massive stroke about a year ago which affected his left side. He had craniotomy surgery. my question has anyone fully recovered after such surgery?
Avatar f tn How long does it take for a patient to recover his memory after a stroke? When will the memory stop improving? My boyfriend of 3 years suffered a stroke last November after surviving cancer (he'll turn 30 in a month) The doctors said the damage in my bf's brain is permanent, the stroke was not severe enough to handicap him but it has affected his memory and mental capacity. They are unsure if he'll ever recover his memory fully.
Avatar f tn Well as correctly said, there are various reason of stroke and stress response / sudden change of posture causing pressure changes in the brain can lead to stroke. Any event causing increased pressure in the brain or it's important arteries can result in the stroke (disruption / rupture of the blood vessel). I hope it satisfies the query. Feel free to discuss further. Regards.
5621588 tn?1371086206 Hi, my name is Adam and I recently had a brain stem stroke. (About 2 weeks ago) I lost my ability to eat and my right side is fairly numb. I'm 35 years old from upstate NY. I know now after reading up on brain stem strokes that I am lucky to even be alive. I also suffer from pretty sever anxiety and panic attacks, which doesn't go very well with being a stroke survivor, as the symptoms of my panic attacks often mimic stroke symptoms.
Avatar f tn My mother, who is 57 and takes good care of her health, suffered a stroke two days ago and is in the hospital as we speak. The stroke occured in her brain stem and the top/side of her head. Through an MRI and a certain procedure I forget the name of, the doctors were able to determine the reason for the stroke on the top/side of her head, which was blockage, i believe, of the vein.
Avatar f tn My LLMD is getting copies of my MRI of the brain from when I was in Texas and was told I have brain lesions and some of my white matter was destroyed and will never come back. The doctors there won't give you a copy so my LLMD is getting it from the facility that took the pictures. Thanks for this.
Avatar n tn This happens due to infarction,stroke,TIA etc causing brain injury leading to nerve cells death followed by fibrous tissue formation.
Avatar n tn // Please stay in touch. Do you also get some respite care so you can get a break from care giving? Take care of YOU tool. Hang in there, I'll be thinking about you.
Avatar m tn My Dad had a stroke 8 days ago, The doctors say it was an Ischimec stroke as the CT scan showed no bleeding. He has retained movement in his limbs and can walk with some assistance, However he has no memory or recognition function. He does not recognise his own family which is heart breaking, He is extremely restless and irritable. He cannot communicate, some words are understood but most are slurred, he cannot feed himself or use the bathroom. He sleeps for hours on end.
Avatar f tn As my father is affected by Acute Brain Stem Infarct (Pontine Stem Stroke) which has all the vital functions like breathing, swallowing, sleeping, thinking, movements etc. He got the stroke on 2nd Mar 2012 and now he is able to breath by himself. Swallowing is not properly done, so Ryle's tube is inserted through the nose for his feed. He is not able to move and he is bed - ridden. On 26th Mar 2013 he vomited some black particles through the Treacheostomy tube.
Avatar m tn My husband suffered a Brain stem stroke July 2007.. At the age of 29. He is doing very well. He has had follow up MRI since. There still shows a very small spot of blood on the MRI. Each time it is smaller. Is this normal 1 year later?? Will it go away? Also, The affects have left him with a crossed right eve. It now comes out to the center but not further? Any suggestions to retrain?
Avatar m tn The CAT Scans do not show any trace of a stroke and the EKG do not show signs of a heart attack. the doctors tell us that there is damage to the brain, but they won't know the extent until my father regains consciousness. He is non responsive to voices and the little movements that he makes that doctors tell us that those are just reflex actions. What can we expect from all this? should we get a second opinion?
Avatar m tn High blood pressure would not likely cause unequal pupils without a major complication like stroke. You do need to see an ophthalmologist Eye MD. When you go in 1. take 5-6 good facial pictures taken over the last 10 years that clearly show your pupil size. 2. Do not let the technicians put any drops in your eye til the eye MD looks at your pupils.
