1038794 tn?1252925252 Follow up with neurology and get a second opinion if they cannot figure things out. Sometimes it takes a long time to get to the bottom of neurological problems. You need to stay closely under a doctor's care and report any new symptoms, no matter how odd or unrelated they seem. Good luck to you--it really stinks having to deal with this when you have a new baby.
378112 tn?1199897215 If we keep her stress and blood pressure lower she does better. She refuses to have a shunt because according to her doctor there is a 40% chance success rate. I have a shunt myself, and was born with hydrocephalus. I can tell you that i dont even notice the shunt. After 27 years you forget you have it.
1570981 tn?1295834955 From your story, i think i too might have to bare with this sickness for a long time, how do you cope with it? Im having an attack right now, im trying to be calm, and not to think negatively. I don't know, things doesn't seems right anymore.
Avatar f tn I don't know how long these espsodes last beacuse I don't know when they start ... only when they end. The doctor did an MRI and saw nothing. He did say there was one small spot that could be a thicking of a (vessel/vein) but he didn't think it was anything to cause the episodes. I also had an EEG that looked okay.
Avatar f tn Thank you for responding to my question. I talked with another doctor on Justanswer and apparently my stroke was a "mini stroke" or TIA. It wasn't as deep in the brain as yours was so it didn't cause any problems. They still didnn't say why I have the dizziness though. So I guess I'll just have to learn to live with it.. Thanks for the tip about the stomach muscles --I;ll be trying it. Hope things have gotten better for you .
Avatar n tn And did you have residual dizziness, headache, and eye ache after your stroke, and if so how long did it last? My stroke doctor said these things should go away after 6 weeks, but I am over 10 and still feel significantly yucky. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn In case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURATION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer.
Avatar n tn Can someone answer this. How long does hydrocodine show up in your system for a drug test. I take this drug for the pain I get with Lymes Disease. I'm starting a new job and they will ask for a drug test. How soon do I need to get off of them so it don't show up on my test. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I had a stroke at the age of 8 and I had a siezure just last year at 21. My doctor said it was because of the scar tissue. I am a student becoming a physical therapist asistant, and I learned that anyone who has had some injury to the brain (concussion, tramatic brain injury etc) is at risk of having a siezure. Anyways I was put on Keppra because on my mri & mra it showed that they were lining up. I haven't had a siezure since then but it was definitely scary. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I find these symptoms worrying as you feel like you are having a stroke. All have been ittermittent/on and of everyday but not constant apart from the tongue numbness, it is painful to move my tongue and talk, feels weird. My question to the forum is: Does anyone know if migraines hit in the same spot each time. Like my numbness on my face is always on the same area (path pattern if you like) and same with leg.
Avatar n tn I cannot remember how long it was after the PT and my stroke, but no more than 2-3 days. Either way, I had a stroke in my cerebellum, my angiogram showed that the artery looked like it might have been torn, and it was speculated by them that the artery had dissected.
Avatar n tn I don't know what to do. My girlfriends father has suffered a major stroke two days ago. nobody is sure of how long he was unconsious for as everyone was out. he hasnt had a drop in his face but function in his right arm,hand,etc has gone. he is responding but not coherently. the doctors have said that it may turn into a ischaemic stroke. What does that mean???? I feel completly usless all i can think of doing is to pray for his recovery and comfort.
Avatar n tn How long ago did she have her stroke? How did you get her to start talking? How long did that take? How is her cognition? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I am 33yrs old I had a stroke last year and I'm on a lot of meds. I had my tubes tied 7yrs ago and now want another baby so I have to do IVF and I have to go see a maternal fetal medicine dr next week to determine if I can do IVF. I'm so scared they say I can't.
Avatar f tn he goes to school preschool-6 there are only 54 kids and his teacher this year has stated she has never seen a student deteriate 9sorry i spelled it wrong) so fast...
Avatar n tn Unlike everybody else here, I am the husband and my wife had a TIA (mini stroke) in June 2009. The reasons behind the stroke to this day have never been answered. The doctors initially tried every test (apart from the TEE - transesophogeal echocardiogram). No answers were found. The background of events behind the stroke are what we truly believe hold the answer to the event itself.
Avatar n tn Thank you.
Avatar f tn Thanks for your comments. My husband has the same family doctor that I have recently started seeing. That is the doctor who originally sent me to be screened for ms. Yesterday my husband had a doctor appt. and the doctor asked how I was doing. My husband told him the neuro said the lesions on my mri was probably due to aging. My family doctor said he was suprised by that because lesions usually do not appear in a person of my age (49).
Avatar f tn Probably one of my most life changing symptoms is the fact of not being able to handle crowded areas such as a store like a WalMart or a Auction house during a auction any place with a lot of people and a lot of visual and audio information coming in.
Avatar n tn I had a TIA(mini-stroke) just after the first of the year. In the ER they asked if I have a living will. My DH and I looked at each other blankly...thinking, wow this coudlbe serious! I said, "Honey, don't let them turn the machines off untill they are sure." He said he'd never let them turn anything off! HA HA!I guess this is not enough. I went so far as to bookmark some do it yourself sites. They had our states forms. So I will if the rest of you how don't have them will.
Avatar n tn I was certain I had cancer, a huge blood clot,mini strokes,was heading for a huge stroke(still worried about that one),a heart attack..I mean it's very scary. I wish I had an answer for everyone, but I keep seeing the same symptoms and nobody knows what the hell it is about. The best thing you can do is remain calm.
Avatar f tn I am so afraid that they are going to continue to get worse until I end up having a major stroke. Has anyone had a stroke or know someone else with Lyme disease that suffered a stroke? I have not seen much in written symptomology about causing stroke but with this disease I "never say never".
2030686 tn?1351692148 I had another one a few months later, which they blamed on me adjusting my buspar dose, and didn't ave any more until I got over heated at the air show last weekend. When I got home I felt like I was having mini panic attacks and they would stop right before they got really bad. I took an ativan and it didn't help so it wasn't anxiety. That night I had 2 seizures in my sleep (I always seem to have 2 in a night).
451975 tn?1372332199 They did all the normal tests MRI, MRA, and tons of blood work. Although the CT scan showed something that they thought may have been a mini stroke the other tests ruled it out and they diagnosed me with a silent or atypical migraine. I had all symptoms of a stroke. The numbness, tingling, drooping of the eyes and mouth on one side, no facial expressions and I could hardly talk. It has been one week and my strength is still not back on my right side and and my speech is still very slurred.
Avatar f tn Ive been tested for bells palsy, ms, but no joy..does anyone have these effects or symptoms after 3 yrs after a stroke? Im under a neurologists at Sheffield Royal, but theyve put it down to functional symptoms due to stress,..we need help or any info from stroke survivors, has anyone suffered or experienced anything like excuse the length of this.
Avatar n tn , then you need to stop. I had a friend in high school who did it once a month or every couple of weeks for a long time (2 or 3 years) and it really messed his brain up. He's never been the same, and he's 30 years old now. He hasn't done it since those days, and never fully recovered. The reason DXM makes you "trip" in large doses is because it's a dis-associative (spellcheck?) which quite literally means that it seperates your mind from your body. DXM is a morphine derivative.
162948 tn?1205256292 My question is if that is normal once it has been removed and how long does it last. I had it in for over a year but wanted it removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
Avatar f tn go figure) recently I have had difficulty swallowing as I feel there is a possibility I will choke. A headache becomes a stroke, a leg pain becomes a blood clot, and a chest pain becomes a heart attack or pulmonary embolism. (** Just to inform you I know these thoughts are completely irrational and crazy, but at the time I simply cannot control them, no matter how hard I try) I constantly have a lump in my throat and I often cry.
