Left brain stroke symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Left brain stroke symptoms


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 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 The physical functions return to normal once the brain edema subsides and hematoma dissolves, but sometimes if the stroke is severe it may take longer.
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 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.
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.
2190999 tn?1504988891 Does anyone have any experience with migraines with stroke symptoms? In 2012 I had left leg weakness and foot drop, dizziness which lasted for months, lateral nystagmus, loss of balance, etc. I was worked up for MS , autoimmune disease, and several others... and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms.
Avatar m tn Hello Dear Respectful Doctors my Father ( 59 year old Orthodontist whom is not diabetic nor hypertensive but has general neuro weakness all over his body developing since the last 2years) was admitted into the emergency department one week ago after he developed what the Doctors first diagnosed as Stroke then Transient Ischemic Attack and then unknown due to the CT Scan and MRI showing nothing according to the neurologist present, he was sitting on the couch normally speaking when suddenly he fe
Avatar n tn I recently had a mild stroke in the left hemisphere of my brain. About two weeks later I started having a problem with my left arm and hand falling asleep. At first this was just an annoyance however, the tingling sensation has been happening more often and with more intensity. Could this problem be caused by the stroke? Will it eventually go away? Can I do anything to help eliminate this problem? Could someone explain why this is happening?
Avatar f tn my husband had a massive stroke about a year ago which affected his left side. He had craniotomy surgery. my question has anyone fully recovered after such surgery?
1678022 tn?1305114267 s words squash your hope, your belief your faith!!!! My father 62 years old suffered a left brain stroke as well during a 7 1/2 hour surgery so they were unsure how long the stroke lasted or when it was. Could have been during surgery or the 12 hours after surgery when he was not awake. They told us he may never respond as well. It started with the slightest hand squeeze (on the left side) the right side did not move for a while.
Avatar n tn The lesions on your brain can be many things. First MS is a possibility since your symptoms maybe compatible with MS. It all depends if the MRI lesions are also descriptive of MS. Other possibilities include primary or metastatic brain tumors. The appearance of these tumors on MRI are distinct and can be differentiated from MS. Infections can also cause lesions in the brain such as cryptococcus, brain abscess, and tuberculosis.
Avatar n tn Just to clarify, if u have a right sided stroke (brain wise) you have left sided physical deficits and vice versa. It always affects the opposite side.
Avatar f tn Radiation causes calcification of the basal ganglia and stroke causes damage to them .
Avatar n tn Prayer. It works . My mother had a stroke left side brain stroke paralyzed her right side also affected her speech. The doctors we had did not give us hope they told us to put my mom in a nursing home that she probably would not recover. That was not an option for me my brother or my dad. Mom was in the hospital from Nov. 30th to Jan 14th. We went through physical therapy at the hopital with mom and we could see improvement in her even if a little bit daily.
Avatar f tn Sometimes the numbness is so strong, the inside of my ear goes numb, as well as the whole left side of my head. I was talking to my mom, b/c she had 2 brain tumors when she was 34. I am 32 going on 33. Sometimes I say things that make no sense, or I know what I'm trying to say, but can't say it out loud. And now I started to stutter. Does anyone know, if I should be really concerned? I have no insurance. I just want to know what this sounds like to anyone with experience with tumors..
Avatar f tn I know i have many symptoms, like left arm numbness, partial left hand paralysis, confusion, not able to follow with instructions or tasks, etc. Help me understand what's going on with me, the VA wont.

Avatar m tn The basal ganglia are structures located deep inside the brain that are important for controlling movement. If your son had a stroke in the left basal ganglia then it could cause weakness and movement problems on the right side of the body as you described. Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) are brief episodes of stroke symptoms (weakness, numbness, difficulty speaking, etc) caused by blockages in the blood vessels of the brain which completely resolve on their own.
Avatar n tn For example, a MRI report might mention left sided brain changes that suggest the appearance of a stroke. If this is the cause of a patient?s symptoms, you would expect to see findings such as a drooping of the right side of the face or perhaps slower/less movement on that side (because the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body).
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.
