Common Questions and Answers about Brain stroke symptoms in dogs

stroke

Avatar n tn They have got to decide what happened, be it a regular minor heart attack, or a bleed in the brain, or an allergic type reaction to too much Zoloft, or some kind of seizure perhaps from another medication he's taking. Gosh, I know you are just worried sick, and I'll be thinking of you, dear one.
2186126 tn?1384961026 Prior to taking the meds, she was always happy and interested in a walk - granted always hungry, but vivacious, full of life. After taking trilostane, it's as if she shut done. I feel that in some dogs, the medicine stops their cortisol production and then somehow it triggers something else that causes them to shut down. I've read now that internal medicine veterinary specialists believe in not treating Cushing's and letting it run its course.
Avatar n tn Good to hear from you again partner in brain warrenty wearout. Maybe one day we can but a new one!
Avatar n tn Small pieces of the calcified disk material can break off, travel around the circulatory system and cause blockages to the spinal nerves in the hind end, and can even travel to the brain and other locations as an embolis. This is a type of stroke and it may have occurred in your dog. Aspirin acts as a blood thinner and in some cases could help move the embolis. The euphoria you describe could have occured as the embolis was moving.
675347 tn?1365464245 How Aspartate (and Glutamate) Cause Damage aspartateAspartate and glutamate act as neurotransmitters in the brain by facilitating the transmission of information from neuron to neuron. Too much aspartate or glutamate in the brain kills certain neurons by allowing the influx of too much calcium into the cells. This influx triggers excessive amounts of free radicals, which kill the cells.
Avatar n tn If the damage is severe, recovery may not occur at all. I do not know the incidence of infarcts affecting the brain in dogs but I think it is pretty low. Even when dogs do not recover fully from peripheral vestibular syndrome they normally have a good life. They adjust to residual problems like head tilts and do not seem all that bothered by them.
Avatar m tn Often stroke symptoms in dogs cannot be identified, unless it's been a slow and steady process. Some of the signs to keep a check on your pet are losing control over bladder and bowel movement, losing balance, sudden blindness, not responding as usual and seizure of twitching of the body. What would you do if you find that your dog is having a stroke?
Avatar f tn However, I have been in touch with patients with symptoms very similar to mine who got it here in the States. My symptoms mimiced MS and IBS. My coinfection of Bartonella has made the GI and neuro symptoms worse. Joint pain is very common, but is not a required symptom. To me, it makes sense that a different tick can result in a variation of the bacteria that results is a somewhat different disease presentation.
Avatar n tn When there's widespread numbness and tingling along with other scattered symptoms, it's difficult to localize the lesion to specific spots in the brain that may be damaged by MS. However, there is a small amount of patients who DO have nonspecific, vague neurologic symptoms that don't localize anywhere and the MRI shows classic MS spots throughout the brain and spinal cord. In your case, though, the MRI (should have brain AND spine) was clean which makes the diagnosis of MS much less likely.
724734 tn?1230944872 Hello everyone, 25/M About a year ago I began experiencing some strange sensations which I sometimes have trouble finding the words to describe, but their presence is definitely there regardless. In a nutshell my symptoms seem to be fatigue, lightheadedness, "brain fog", trouble focusing, numbness and generally just feeling disconnected. I'm "not there" so to speak, both physically and mentally.
Avatar f tn I was referred to a new Dr as mine was retiring and this Dr doesnt believe in Narcotics so I was taken off the vicodin--cold turkey. this Dr would not even give me enough to taper off. The only thing that works for the pain but what was worse was the withdrawls for 3 days. Needless to say I am seeing a new Dr this week. To me there is a diffference between head pain where your whole head hurts to touch and a 24/7 headache (sometimes cluster headaches).
Avatar f tn It could also have been caused by hypoglycemia. It could have been a minor cerebral accident (mini stroke). If it's a brain tumor, they will happen again. If it was hypoglycemia, as long as her blood sugar doesn't crash again, it should remain an isolated incident. If it was a cerebral accident, it may or may not happen again. At 15, though, I wouldn't start her on serious meds like anti-seizure meds unless the seizures were happening on a daily or even weekly basis.
Avatar f tn He can't manage simple task like taking a shower or feeding his dogs. I will tell him to go feed the dogs and he will say "ok" but then it's like his soul leaves his body and his eyes glaze over, kinda like the lights are on but nobody's home. He has also wandered off to a neighborhood that is about a mile and a half north of town out in the country all by itself.
Avatar n tn I knew that theres something wrong, but I come from different country and never had a chance to met and drug usser in my life and i wouldn't know the symptoms. Anyway he was compulsive liar. The things started be mising on me. At the begining i felt that the loves me, but when i was susspecting his addiction he stopped give a f$% about anything.
Avatar n tn as this can do permanent damage to the nerve cells in your central nervous system(brain and apinal cord), cardiopulmonary system and smooth muscle in your digestive tract( mainly the large intestine as these are the areas of the body where opiate receptors are widely spread. Tapering as slowly as possible will almost eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once you stop taking them you will probably feel some withdrawal symptoms so always taper as slowly as possible toward the end. xoxo- D.
15442 tn?1316521989 So when I was in his rooms after the FLAIR MRI and he told me that he wished he could say his brain was as good as mine........ what the (blankety blank) was he thinking? I'm hoping in a few weeks with more information under my belt I can then start looking for a "real" neurologist, one who has better communication skills. You have to remember that this is the man who posted out my initial abnormal MRI results when I still had about five weeks to wait to see him.
Avatar n tn So, I am seeing a neurologist, had a brain MRI couple weeks ago, having spinal tap in 2 weeks, many lesions in my brain areas, she says I might have MS, snall vessel stroke disease, or something else, waiting for spinal tap. I am on neurontin, 3 weeks now, headacjes, improved, but the head sensations have not, in fact, Sunday night they wre so bad, I dropped a glass cause it threw my thoughts off. Last night, they happened almost all night and I couldn't sleep.
192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, there are a whole bunch of postings under "chronic cough" which seem similar to this. And some good ideas I am going to try I have had a constant cough for 3 plus years and for last year it has been phlegmy like yours. I am always coughing and clearing my throat at meetings like an old man. Worse in a.m. when I wake up or out in cold walking the dogs. Or.... talking on the telephone or in a meeting. Always have a "frog" in my throat.
572651 tn?1531002957 That meant Bomber, his new partner, would also be living in the house with us. K-9 dogs are also very much a part of their families. But Bomber is a 100 lb German Shepherd ... he is generally very docile around the house (unless someone he doesn't know comes to the door or breaches the perimeter of our property, lol), but we just were not comfortable introducing a small bird into the equation. Plus, Cosmo was used to being out of his cage whenever I was home.
Avatar n tn (1) It is a muted sound, much like when you pop your ear to try to equalize the pressure, but not as loud. (2) It is irregular, as in it doesn't follow my hearbeat in any way... but it is happening 14-15 times every minute. (3) It does have a feeling to it... as in, when you hear a noise, it doesn't feel like something physical is happening to you... this feels something like pressure being relieved from the ear... Anyone have a clue?

Avatar n tn Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
Avatar m tn What this meant was that my esophagus (the top of my stomach) had been widened and could no longer hold the acid in my stomach in place. Every time I felt the same symptoms as you all been describing (my heart dropping), it was due to the acid rushing up in my esophagus and coming back down.
Avatar f tn Inability to find words, short term memory failings, brain fog, and mishearing things in conversation constantly, but after a second or 2 usually my brain catches up to my ears and finds the error. Ears fine, brain isnt. Due to length second post incoming with all signs symptoms tests etc.
Avatar f tn Unlike SPECT and PET images which assess brain function, MRI captures the physical structure of the brain. Inflammatory abnormalities in the brain are also assessed with MRI scans. In children with neurologic Lyme disease, the MRI may reveal white matter hyperintensities suggestive of inflammation or areas of demyelination.
Avatar f tn I take phenergan myself for constant nausea, and discovered late in the game that dogs can also take phenergan. It didn't work quite as well as the reglan, but at that point we tried anything we could get our hands on. Over the counter Dramamine for motion sickness can be tried as it is metabolized in the liver - got that info from an ER vet nearby.
Avatar f tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. It is possible that your symptoms are due to herniated discs. It is not necessary to have neck pain with herniated discs. I would suggest you to get a clinical evaluation done and may be an X ray of cervical spine to rule out any recent changes. The possibility of panic attacks and over anxiety also cannot be ruled out. Since your cardio logical exam was normal, the possibility of heart disease is very less.
Avatar n tn I'm a 26 year old male and since October 2006 have been experiencing 24-7 sinus pressure in the upper corners of my nose (always one side at a time), but NO allergy symptoms (i.e. no running nose, sneezing, coughing, itchy nose/eyes/throat, etc). The pressure is so bad that it presses back onto my brain, causing terrible lightheadedness, forgetfullness, and general mental impairment.
Avatar m tn He pants a lot and we live next door to two very terretorial barking big dogs; he sometimes runs right back in the house when they bark at him even though he is bigger (but much older!).
Avatar f tn The best part of the diagnosis is nothing is detected in CT scan, MRI. That clearly shows that he does not have any major anomaly in the brain. I have to tell you that puberty or growth spurts are not related to Epilepsy. Some children have them with high fever and many causes are unknown. They decrease by themselves and giving Valproic acid/Phenobarbitol depending on the diagnosis is the best way out. Please visit a good neurologist and follow up on EEG.
