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?
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
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.

Avatar n tn Hi, did you developed the symptoms after stopping therapy with tizanidine or during tratment with tizanadine. Your symptoms are suggestive of hypertonia which is one of the withdrawl symptoms with this medicine as this drug may produce dependence. Tizanadine is muscle relaxant, acting at the level of brain and usually given in cases of back pain, spasms etc. It is unlikely to have stroke with this drug. But its withdrawl can cause muscle spasm or hypertonia.
Avatar f tn Since you experienced the symptoms three days back and they are still persistent most probably you have suffered a Stroke. The symptoms that you are experiencing- numbness of left hand and cheek also support the probable diagnosis. A stroke is a medical emergency and may cause permanent neurological damage and serious complications. A stroke can occur due to ischemia (lack of blood supply) caused by thrombosis or embolism or due to a brain hemorrhage.
5621588 tn?1371086206 Hi, my name is Adam and I recently had a brain stem stroke. (About 2 weeks ago) I lost my ability to eat and my right side is fairly numb. I'm 35 years old from upstate NY. I know now after reading up on brain stem strokes that I am lucky to even be alive. I also suffer from pretty sever anxiety and panic attacks, which doesn't go very well with being a stroke survivor, as the symptoms of my panic attacks often mimic stroke symptoms.

Avatar m tn In December 17th of 2013 my little sister was admitted into the hospital for symptoms of what appeared to be stroke like symptoms. Weakness on her left hand side. She weighed 120lbs and had lost some movement in her left hand and her left leg would drag some when she walked. She had a CT scan which was read as abnormal later had an MRI done. We were told she had what appeared to be an Astrocytoma. On 12/19 a biopsy was done.
4418279 tn?1354277370 I have very painful tingling down the entire left side of my body, plus twitching, and the left side of my face droops. It looks as though I'm having a stroke but I'm not. I also have a lot of pressure and pain in the back of my head and left eye. I had a brain MRI with and w/ out contrast and and EEG, which came back clean. I think my doctors have given up, but I cannot live like this. I have to finish college, but getting out of bed is a huge struggle some days.
Avatar n tn I have had heaches everyday for about 4 months. I had a stroke in April with negative MRI, but severe left side weakness. I had a TIA in July with negative MRI, but with only slight weakness. Now I am experiencing severe migraines that have spasms so painful in my head it feels like My brain is being stabbed over & over. My weakness is worse. It is on the left side. I was walking with a walker 260 ft. with a therapist before this last episode. HELP!!
Avatar n tn Most likely possibility in your case could be effect of post brain stroke and this occurs when the blood supply to the brain is disturbed due to a clot and person may experience severe headache, confusion, loss of vision and facial muscles weakness. Facial muscle weakness leads to puffiness at cheek area.
Avatar m tn My concern with your symptoms would be a small stroke, resulting in numbness of the Left side of your body. I am especially concerned since you give a history of a tooth infection. Whenever there is a tooth infection that is untreated, there is a risk of the bacteria going in to the blood stream and attaching to the valves inside the heart. The bacteria can then grow there in to a vegetation, and parts of it can break of and go to the brain, resulting in a stroke.
Avatar m tn I suffered a mini stroke a few weeks ago, losing feeling in my left side. I have the feeling back in my leg but it's not 100%. Although I have major pain in my left arm which is causing me problems sleeps as the tablets I am on does seem to work as I am taking morphine as well. The part that I don't understand is that I had a MRI and they found white with black circles on my brain, can you show some light on this please what are they?
Avatar n tn An MRI of the brain may be a good test to evaluate you for stroke and would be a good baseline for you just in case you should have more symptoms. A BAEP tests your response to hearing and the integrity of its connections with the brainstem. If you have a problem in the brainstem or along its connection such as a stroke or multiple sclerosis, the test will be abnormal. Think back when you developed each symptom and when you were started on the amiodarone.
Avatar f tn I had a stroke when I was 19 and have damage left on my frontal lobe. My left side is weaker but I recently had a bad fall as my left side gave way again. Is there a possibility that I'm never going to get full use of my left side again? I'm 33 now and the problems left from the stroke seem to be getting worse. Thank you.
Avatar n tn These symptoms are very strange but a pinched nerve would not cause any problems with speech. First, you should make sure that the doctors checked him out for any infection: urinary or respiratory (e.g. pneumonia). Some symptoms such as these could still be related to strokes if someone has any narrowing in the arteries supplying the brain either from the outside or the inside.
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 Dad (age 72) is 3 months status post stroke (left side of brain in the back) and left the hosptial with neuropathy in his right arm. No pain but an intense sensation of coldness with a pins and needles sensation. Two months after discharge, the neuropathy has spread to right side of face, neck, side, and down right leg. Is it typical for neuropathy to spread? Does it indicate extension of stroke? Can anything be done to relieve the discomfort. Will it get better or go away.

867582 tn?1311627397 MS can look like a stroke. My sister looks like she has had a stroke- left foot drop, left side of face droopy, left arm weak . . . She's had other symptoms besides the ones mentioned above that's left her unable to walk and what looked like a stroke on the onset. Even her current neurologist said he was thinking that she may have had a stroke at first. The MRI of the brain and neck revealed a different story.
Avatar f tn As far as the pain on the left side of the body is concerned, if the whole left side was involved, without localization to joints, sudden in onset with persistence of symptoms, it seems very much like a stroke. One possibility for negative reports that I can think of is that you had a spasm of blood vessels or your investigations were done before the stroke progressed to a level where changes are visible on the scans. This ties in with the fact that you also have memory problems.
