Common Questions and Answers about Can stroke symptoms come and go

stroke

Avatar n tn 2010 and since then I have talked to dozens and dozens to stroke survivors and have found out that there are so many different symptoms that can come from a stroke that there is not a perfect answer. Each stroke is different to each different person. One thing may happen to your aunt that didn't happen to me, but may happen to thousands of others. Sight problems are common after a stroke and many times do go away after some time. If it gets worse or she is worried, see her doctor.
Avatar n tn 31/F. Had classic symptoms of stroke, when I was taken to the ER I was told I was having a strokeby nuerologist. Right side of my body was paralyzed, and left side of face was affected. CT w/out contrast,MRI,EEG all came back negative. When reading over nuerologist notes from ER he stated that Spasticity was observed also.
484698 tn?1208823583 If I go out today (which I shall in fact, do) and clear brush, dig, till and plant the garden, chop firewood and spread mulch around the flower beds, at the end of the day when I partake of that wonderful clear liquid known as a martini, I'm going to ache all over, I'll be sunburned on my neck, I'll have chigger bites itching the dickens out of me, I'll stink, be exhausted and sweaty, have achy muscles and be I'll be cranky (until the martini kicks in).
Avatar n tn On its own dizziness with bilateral hand tingling is not very suggestive of a stroke and may be more realted to blood pressure, heart causes etc.
580765 tn?1274922960 All of these episodes were preceded by extreme fatique and had racing heart as an ingredient. My racing heart episodes can go up to 215 bpm and last up to 15 min, but sometimes they come and go within a minute. They 'click' from normal to high speech and back again; they do not work their way up to racing.
Avatar n tn When the stroke happened, I ignored my symptoms and they went away. Just to be on the safe side I saw my family doctor 3 days later, and he immediately sent me to emergency where I had blood work and CT scan, which showed I had a stroke. I asked if there was any connection between my nose injury and stroke, and told there was none.
Avatar n tn can a stroke be faked, or caused by drug abuse and is it normal for the flacicity to come and go randomly sometimes with in 10 min or so.
Avatar n tn Be careful with chiropractors too, if you're spinal cord has been damaged, which is likely, you can have a stroke. My neurologist told me to NOT GO TO A CHIRO, that I could have a stroke and die. Please be well. Take it easy but don't stop moving your neck. GENTLE MOVEMENTS of the neck. USE ICE for inflam. AND DO NOT IGNORE PAIN that is "bearable".
2175879 tn?1338358628 Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. As your doctors have ruled out stroke and suggest that your symptoms could be due to PTSD, you could go for professional counselling and see if it helps to resolve your symptoms. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I am wondering if I should go ahead and have these seen about or just wait and see if they do not resolve in a week or so? Can you advise?
Avatar f tn He seems to have no use of his left side and of course, has the slurred speech. This stroke happened 4 days ago. The neurosurgeon told us today that he will have to have surgery as the blood is not re-absorbing and the swelling has restarted. My question is---how successful is this surgery? How dangerous? I realize that without it, we will basically watch him lay and die. The doctor called it an "intracranial" bleed or stroke. His blood pressure is great and always has been.
473703 tn?1207761354 I was just hopeing that some one can tell me some of the symptoms of Ms. I was in the hospital due to stroke like symptoms spend a few days there and had many heart test done, come to find out that I did not have a stroke , well that's a good thing I thought. And then a Neuro came in to see me, and told me that on my MRI he had seen somethings that he was not happy with, He said I think you might have Ms, and that he wanted to do a few more test.
Avatar n tn One area of the brain takes over the functions that were previously managed by a different area. Remember, people can and do recover from a stroke! Incase of a brain damage, it may take a little longer.
1438751 tn?1285093678 It is best that you discuss this with your attending physician since he or she knows your medical history and can correlate your symptoms with other medical conditions that you have. Try not to listen to speculations of psychological treatment if they are not psychiatrists or experts in the field. Take care always and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Hello Dear, You probably have hemiplegic migraine where , the symptoms are indicative of vascular disease and can be thought to be stroke. Migraine-specific abortives, the triptans and ergotamines, are currently contraindicated in the treatment of Hemiplegic Migraine because of their vasoconstrictive properties and concerns about stroke You should consult your physician and monitor your blood pressure for there may be chancec of hypertension with migraine.

233915 tn?1218816727 It has been discovered from an MRI that my 13 year old daughter has had a stroke. Her only symptoms are headache, dizziness, and nausea. The headacheas are what brought us to the doctor who ordered the MRI. When the MRI showed signs of a stroke, she sent us to a neurologist. The neurologist seemed to think the stroke was "old" and occured before she was born, or as an infant because other than the "migraines" she suffered no symptoms.
Avatar n tn I feel dizzy. I have dizzy spells that come and go. I have trouble with conversations and speech. I can listen well, but it is hard sometimes to gather my thoughts and return speak answers to others in conversations. I saw the neurologist a couple of days ago. He suggested I stay on my baby aspirin regiment. Popping like tic tac's thorough out the day just to keep the headaches away. I had a EEG test done the other day. Hopefully the results come back ok.
Avatar f tn I have had to be given medications to make my pressure come up and stabalize. Even if I just go to have blood drawn and the tech cant get my vein so they dig around- i'm hitting the floor. Now if they are good and hit it right away Im fine. My husband is so worried about me and with all the doctors that I've seen they havent told me anything new. I have not had the table test done. They take blood, urine, and regular blood pressure readings- thats about it.
Avatar m tn I found ways to coupe with the discomfort and my symptoms seemed to come and go. I had given up on my family doctor and just figured I would have to deal with this until I found another doctor. My symptoms were starting to increase to the point where I had constant neck problems. I've had a stiff neck for years but only on the left side. I had very frequent chest pains around where my heart is and oddly enough I would have tingling sensation in my left heel and sometime my left arm.
Avatar n tn Sometimes the symptoms can go very non-specific too, while sometimes people don't even remember they got any ARS at all.
Avatar f tn But during this whole process, while at home, I was talking to God, and praying that he would not allow me to die at home, because I didn't want to leave this world knowing that my kids would come home and find me there. I just didn't want to leave that burden on them like that. That was my only fear through it all, was leaving my kids behind to find me lying on the floor.
Avatar n tn I can only speak for myself, I am 62, had a stroke last July, 04, when I woke up 7 weeks later in the hospital, my wife had orders to find a nursing home. I was as weak as a kitten, prior to going in I was very strong but the stroke and subsequent hospital stay took it away as well as much of my body weight. Today I am almost back to normal, still a bit weak but with a good exercise program I am getting back to complete normal.
Avatar n tn And ever since that day, I have had horrible chest pains, head aches, body aches, back aches, tingly arms and legs. Most the symptoms come and go, but the one that is constant seems to be the chest pains. I am over weight ,so I worry that its a heart attack. I have been to the ER before and had an EKG done and had chest x rays, and everything came back normal. My regular doctor has taken blood tests to check for diabetes and cardiac levels, and everything came back fine.
Avatar f tn The best advice i can give you is that you need to scroll back up to the top of your medhelp screen and log onto the "stroke" site and re post your question there. The chances of finding another person who has gone thru the exact same thing is very very strong....you are more than welcome here however i want you to go to the specialty site that others can weigh in on their experiences....good luck to you....
Avatar n tn If the bubble test shows right to left shunt, then there is the theoretical chance for small clots to cross the heart and go to the brain. Yes, small clots can induce strokes. Whether the small bright spots on your MRI are do to small clots is probably not known. It is alittle worrisome to have more on the left than the right side of your brain. But what you need to know is that many people have bright spots on their MRI without a PFO and without any effects.
Avatar n tn My husband arrested while playing basketball at our recreation center on Monday and was revived by a defibrillator, taken to the hospital and the next day a defibrillator/pacemaker was implanted, he was discharged on Wednesday. He seemed ok on Thursday. Friday AM he got up and while we getting ready to go to the recreation center he said his eyes would not focus together.
1763947 tn?1334058919 For the next 4 yrs and 8 months, I had unexplained bouts of disabling fatigue and headache that would come on suddenly and last 1-3 weeks. They would go away and I would feel "fine" again. Then, in Aug 2010 after 2 years of chronic stress, my chronic symptoms began. It was 16 months before I got my diagnoses and began treatment. So, I believe it's possible to have periods of time mostly symptom free.
Avatar m tn Botox has greatly helped my severe migraines which were caused by my stroke. I still have leg pain and can barely use my hand, plus my arm doesn't work that well. But nothing like the pain that you are suffering from. And what about the Butrans patches? Can you try the Botox or Butrans patches? You take care.
Avatar n tn One approach is your doctors' approach of trying aspirin, and as long as you do not have a recurrence of stroke or mini-stroke, to just leave you on the aspirin. If you do have a recurrence, the next step would be to add another blood thinner in addition to aspirin. This is a sensible, common sense approach that has been used for many years. The only problem with this is that if the next stroke is a large one, it could leave you with significant disability, or worse.
Avatar n tn This would have been fine, except since then, I've encountered another pressure area on my left rump, and my cheek. All of these symptoms come and go. If I fall asleep and turn over so I'm sleeping on my back, the shoulder thing does get worse. Same with my rump and cheek: pressure against them only aggravates the issue. This has been going on for approximately 2 weeks now. So... my question is... COULD this be a minor stroke?
