484160 tn?1343397921 Just as I was about to walk out the door to go to work, myself, he called and said he felt drunk and a co-worker had told him it sounded like a stroke. So hubby had called a friend whose wife is a nurse, and she told him the same thing. I tell him to get to the hospital, that I would meet him there. He's not in the ER more than 20 minutes when the doctor comes and and tells him that he had most definitely had a stroke.

Avatar n tn Numbness in your lip, cheek, arm, leg favoring one side are possible and serious signs of a pending TIA/stroke. TIA is the same thing as a stroke only difference is it doesn't leave permanent damage like a CVA/stroke. That numbness is your body telling you there is a blockage somewhere. My recommendation if your having numbness to your face and side to see your doctor immediately, if possible see a Cardiologist as there are many heart ailments that can lead to stroke.
Avatar n tn about a week ago my father complained of chest and arm pain. when i suggested a mild heart attack he did not take me seriously and failed to see a doctor. he then came home a couple nights ago with a terrible black eye. apparently he had gotten in to a dispute that ended in violence and was hit in the head with a 2x4. He refused once more to go to the doctor. he did not show any signs of concusion so we dissmissed it.

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 s result in embolic stroke (a clot going from the heart to the brain), and these are typically located in the periphery of the brain, while MS lesions are typically deep. If there is any confusion, then the diagnosis of MS can be established by performing a spinal fluid analysis. A PFO causes stroke by allowing a clot to pass from the body into the outgoing cirulation (i.e. to the brain) without being filtered in the lung.
Avatar n tn Hi Sorry to hear of your husband's episode :( If indeed he has had a TIA (mini stroke), treat it is a warning. Find out the cause & do everything you can to address that cause. This is his chance yo stop the big one happpening.
2005895 tn?1327721790 A MRI will definately show signs of a stroke. I had a cat scan and it showed nothing until I had a MRI and it showed a brainstem stroke. Take slow steps and slow movements for everything she does and it will get better.
Avatar f tn hi, your symptoms are like stroke but not completly, you should check it for other conditions such as bells pulsy or may be other things.
Avatar n tn Does that prevent the stroke from occurring by reducing the heart pumping? Can you slide into a heart attack from that? If you are worried both about stroke and heart attack is aspirin still a good first step? Also, I am not a migraine sufferer, but I work with someone who is-are they inherently more prone to stroke?

She has had a EKG CT SCAN for signs of heart problems and Ct scan for possible stroke..All which have come back normal. She pretty much is frustrated cause hospitals and doctors seem to dismiss a stroke because of age. They try to give her pain meds, which she doesn't want..I am Concerned as she is cause this for one is scary two not normal and affects her normal life....
Avatar n tn It's probably a panic attack. Take some deep breaths, drink some hot tea, do something to relax. You may encounter some heart palpitations, but do your best to stay calm and breathe, center yourself. If there's any associated swelling or signs of a heart attack or stroke, seek immediate medical attention, but I'm sure you'd have mentioned these, so like I said, it's most likely a panic attack.
620048 tn?1358018235 There are signs that something is a stroke that the medical personnel recognize immediately , the clues they use spell FAST F = face, is one side drooping? is there a dramatic changes? A= arms. can the person lift their arms and keep them equal? If one drifts downward, that may be a sign of a stroke. S= speech. Is the speech slurred or doesn't make sense? T = remember that TIME is so imporatant.
248167 tn?1220363690 , difficulty controlling where hand goes), vision changes or loss, asymmetry of smiling, etc are all presentations of stroke. Stroke is a neurological emergency. The treatment for stroke is time based. Thus, if a person has the symptoms of a stroke, they or someone else should call 9-1-1 ASAP. Preventative stroke measures are also encouraged in patients who are at risk for stroke.
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 n tn It has gotten worse than better. Had one big heart push with dizzy this past week. Now have a heart event monitor for 4 weeks with nothing showing yet (no big push but plenty of dizzy spells). Have had new round of thyroid bloodtests too. So far I am healthy, but never felt worse. The only thing left to check is my head or attribute it to fatigue/stress. Last night I took a Valium and my neck and shoulders were sore today kinda like they were not as tense.
1252322 tn?1270553169 Has he been tested for mononucleosis? Has he had his heart and blood pressure checked recently? Symptom checker on this site says headache, tiredness and cough can be symptoms of mono. It also says that tiredness, cough, and dizziness can be signs of a heart attack & if the pain is in his left shoulder, I know that can be another sign of a heart attack in males. It also says •Head ache •Body ache •Cough •Dizziness •Tiredness are alls symptoms of flu and the common cold.
1024150 tn?1251777624 Look this could be classic symptoms of a stroke is he overweight? Does he have a family history of heart attack or stroke? Numbness and or a drooping lip are signs of a stroke, does his lip droop does he loose his ability to speak including slurred speech? He needs to see a Cardiolologist and soon. If you lack insurance go to the closest ER preferably a teaching hospital. I don't want to scare you but he needs to get help and soon.
723330 tn?1231250952 My heart rate is 145. My chest is pounding.
Avatar n tn Has she seen a doctor or had any tests? Any prior health problems? Sounds like signs of a stroke, but I really don't know, it could be something less serious, either way I would have her see a doctor right away, to at least rule out heart problems. Let us know.
