Avatar n tn While visiting me on Thanksgiving, my 86 year old aunt had a massive left brain stroke. This has left her completely unable to speak, swallow or move her right side at all.My question is: How are you able to know how much she can understand what you are saying? I see her almost every day, and I talk to her, play music, show her pictures, etc. Sometimes I don't even see any eye contact. Is there any way to know how much she understands. The drs.
3055976 tn?1340377077 My father got a stroke twice but on different years. First was on October of 2008 and the second was on November of 2009. Thankfully, he recovered. But there are times,especially during the evening when he starts talking about things in the past, most of them are not familiar to us. Or sometimes he takes anything random as topic like pictures or any objects or words he hears. I'm worried because he never stops talking. Then, what worries us more is the next day, he starts being hot-tempered.
Avatar n tn Depression is a frequent result of brain stem stroke (and most other stroke locations, too) and antidepressants are a useful therapy. You can help by treating him in exactly the same way you did before the stroke. He still has most of his faculties and his personality probably has not changed, he is now locked inside this uncooperative body. Tell him about family and national news and help him to express opinions as he will have done before.

2175879 tn?1338355028 My MRI results came in. This time my neurologist actually found proof that I had a stroke. First they thought it was a TIA, then an ear ache, and then I kinda forced the issue, they did another MRI and actually found a small "disruption" on my right side of my brain. I can't tell you how relieved that makes me.

Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?

Avatar n tn My MRI showed an old stroke, but all doctors say the vision problem is not due to the small grey area in brain (stroke). I have been told it might be retinal vascualitis, but nothing can be done. The pictures taken behind the eye show inflammation of the vessels and lots of dark spots. I live in a small town and need to get to a good doctor. I would like to see a top retinal doctor to get another opinion. Could you please refer me to a doctor that can help me?

Avatar f tn My boyfriend of 3 years suffered a stroke late November 07 after surviving cancer, he was 29. The doctors said the damage in my boyfriend'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. He is recovering slowly but still has trouble remembering people including me.
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.
551789 tn?1237180929 That's the only way i can describe the strange feeling I get in my head. It's almost purely physical but it send me into a panic attack. I get almost convinced I'm having a stroke or something and the feeling lasts about 30 mins.
Avatar m tn 10 years ago I suffered from severe headaches as well as anosmia. It was suggested that an MRI brain scan should be undertaken (presumably to rule out the remote possibility of a brain tumour). The MRI scan was more or less normal - except for some white spots (perhaps 10-20 on one of the "scan pictures") each measuring ~1 mm x 2 mm. The neurologist commented that these white spots probably arose from "exhausted/thrombosed blood vessels".
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 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 f tn My 74 yr old mum suffered a brain stem stroke after a bilateral knee operation of 16 April this year. The sad thing is she had suffered arthritis for many years. And this year when both legs gave way there was no choice but to do a knee replacement . The orto surgeon suggested bilateral. Mum was so looking forward to being independent again.
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.
Avatar f tn If a grand mal seizure lasts for a long time in a person with seizure it can lead to brain damage. Seizures are caused by brain scarring, infections such as meningitis, tumors, surgery, stroke, and Alzheimer’s and related diseases. They can be triggered by stress, lack of sleep, infection, alcohol, and certain medications and, in children, fevers. Similarly brain damage from traumatic injury, brain tumor, a lack of oxygen to the brain all can lead to scar tissue to form.
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.
