Avatar m tn Canine Stroke Recovery Dog's suffer from brain strokes just as we do. However the chances of complete recovery are greater. Find out about canine stroke recovery period and how to look after your dog post attack... Dogs usually suffer from strokes only after they are over 8 years of age, unless there is something drastically wrong with the dog's health. Strokes never do come with a warning and often just happen without any prior signs.
Avatar n tn Many owners confuse the symptoms of a stroke in humans to a stroke in dogs. In fact, they are quite different.

Avatar n tn Had stroke symptoms.
Avatar n tn And without oxygen, nerve cells in the affected area of the brain can not work properly, and die within minutes. This leads to the symptoms of stroke such as numbness or paralysis. Depending on the vessel affected, paralysis may only manifest on one side or both. However, the usual presentation is in one side of the body. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Infarcts (blood clotting leading to lack of circulation in part of the brain) occur in some dogs. If the damage to the brain is minimal then recovery may occur quickly. 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.
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 I recently suffered a stroke and spent a week in the hospital. As part of the testing, my doctored ordered an MRI and an MRA. After seeing the results he told me that I possibly had an anuerism and ordered an A-gram. The A-gram showed a 'curled' vein in my brain rather than an anuerism. I cannot find any information on this condition.
Avatar m tn m posting here today because i am very worried about someone that i know that had stroke like symptoms but the doctors believe it was no a stroke but a brain cramp.
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 From the symptoms I think your vet is probably right on the money with the diagnosis of a mass in the brain, but I doubt that the tremors signify pain because you said they are of short duration. Pain wouldn't be that transient, so it sounds like she may be having a neurological reaction to the mass. As long as she is eating her food, eager to go outside and is alert and happy to see you when you talk to her, just let her be. You will know when it's time.

Avatar f tn Radiation causes calcification of the basal ganglia and stroke causes damage to them .
Avatar f tn Dogs can have strokes, which is what a brain aneurysm amounts to. Sometimes a dog that has a stroke will recover, just like people can recover from a stroke. Other times, a dog will not recover or at least will not recover well enough to have good quality of life. I think what I would be doing now would be to have a heart-to-heart talk with the vet to see if he or she thinks that yes, this probably was a stroke.
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.
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
Avatar n tn Yes dogs can have strokes, but it is rare. If she's showing no other signs/symptoms then I wouldn't be too concerned about a stroke.. Other symptoms are head tilt, turning the wrong way when called, lethargy, vision and balance problems, incontinence, and more.. Does she have any underlying conditions that you know of? ie kidney or heart disease, diabetes, thyroid issues, recent head trauma, high blood pressure all increase risk of strokes.
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 Very good day, drove a lot. Had a decaf latte and in went downhill from there. Thinking I had a stroke or anurysm or something.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with MS in 2009, and am taking rebif medication. I've had about four experiences in the last month and a half of a surging feeling in my brain. It occurs when I'm asleep, and actually jolts me awake. Does anyone else get this symptom as well?
Avatar f tn My husbandf took me to the hospital and after ct scans and MRI I was told I had a stroke. I fel blessed tho, I ahve no lasting affects accept bouts of being dizzy and headaches. I am frustrated tho because my questions have not been answered. Why did I have this. My cholesteral is ok, my arteries are ok. The doctors don't have any answers. Ok I do need to lose 20lbs well now 10 and my blood pressure was borderline which I am taking medication for.
Avatar n tn Does this mixture of symptoms connect in any way? I find it hard to believe I have developed all this around the same time, with any connection. If you have any insight I would appreciate it. Thank you so very much!!!!!
Avatar n tn I am a 51 year old female. In 2005 I had an MRI done one my brain because of migraines. The findings were as follows: "There is a moderate volume of periventribular, deep, and subcortical cerebral white matter foci of T2 hyperintensity. There is no eveidence of acute cortical infarction. There are no mass lesions or extraaxial collections. ventricles and sulci are normaal size. Normal vascular signal voids are demonstrated." They told me it looked like an MRI of a 70 year old.
Avatar f tn I have been told I have an imbalance in my brain. The symptoms I have are as follows. I feel as if I am going to pass out, I have a burning sensation across my back and down my right arm, My blood pressure goes really high, the pupil in my right eye dilates and my eyes go cloudy. I have been prescribed sodium valproate. I also have hypertension and under active thyroid can you give me any idea what is going wrong in my brain. Thanks.
Avatar m tn (mini-stroke)? From what I find online, hypodensity on a CT scan in a patient who has had a stroke is bad news.... this is something you and your dad (if he is able) need to discuss with his physician. In patients who've had a minor stroke or a transient ischemic attack (mini-stroke), hypodensity in the white matter of the brain means extra risk of the potential for a future stroke. (See PM) I have a parent who suffered from a T.I.A.
