Avatar f tn Though they are of no immediate threat, all these causes, and the presence of ischemic changes can be a risk factor for future stroke. Hence, prevention methods should include a healthy lifestyle, and a combination of diet, exercise, and medicines. Please discuss with your treating doctors. If you have migraines and a demyelinating disease then these changes are expected. Take care!
Avatar n tn If an infarct has already formed then there is damage to that part of the brain and consequently loss of function that corresponds to that particular part of brain. Most stroke patients experience some permanent disability that may interfere with walking, speech, vision, understanding, reasoning, or memory. Prognosis depends on the type of stroke, the degree and duration of obstruction or hemorrhage, and the extent of brain tissue death.

Avatar f tn The causes and effects they have on your brain health are different, strokes can look like seizures and seizure can look like strokes but a stroke occurs due to a disruption of blood circulation in the brain, a seizure occurs due to a surge of electrical activity in the brain....
Avatar f tn There's a book called "My Stroke of Insight" by Jill Bolte Taylor, a brain scientist who experienced a stroke and documented the experience and her 8-year recovery in detail. My mother recently had a major stroke and my family has just started the book. We've already come across many passages that describe emotions and reactions our mom is having to a tee. You can see a video of Dr. Taylor talking about her experience and her book here: http://www.****.
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.
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 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.
5848391 tn?1380728642 You should really see a doctor if the headaches are so bad. If you keep taking any pain reliever it just causes rebound migraines. If it is the worst migraine that you can imagine, go to the ER. It could be a stroke. That's how my stroke started. It went on for 3 weeks before it fully erupted. See a doctor.
Avatar n tn My recent MRI of my brain found mild T2 and Flair signal changes in the perivenricular white matter and subcortical white matter compatible with minimal chronic microvascular ischemic disease. What does this mean?
Avatar n tn its a nerve problem dat sends signals from brain to the organ n vice-versa.smetimes d person may feel lke nt understanding what to do..gets depression..mainly if a person may be lacking vitamin B12. I suggest u to get a checkup..as prevention n safety r better den waiting 4 any risk to come.. here is a website which u can refer to in regard with my context. http://medconnect.
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 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.
Avatar m tn Of course there is a difference in preparation and lowering your risks to help prevent stroke or heart attack. Prevention is always the best approach, as much as possible that is.
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 n tn I thought he had a heart attack, stroke, etc....My husband is 38 years old, six feet one, and weighs about 240. He recently (within 6 months) was told his cholesterol is about 130+. The first episode happened about 1.5 years ago. He has a very high stress job that requires a ton of flight time. There is no history of heart disease in his family. So, what do you think? He is trying to shrug it off, but I have insisted he go to get a stress test.
