Avatar m tn Thank you for your reply on my Post regarding brain stroke on left side. My sister is under medical care at the present time. But the doctors seem to think that this is some rare case.She has lost some 32# in 3weeks. They now have her on intravenous, she still could not keep down any pills. She had been to a rehab.unit for a week, they let her go home, and thats when she still could not take any pills, without throwing up.
Avatar n tn Hi Angie , The symptoms of your mother do suggest of a mild stroke . Please go for a CT scan and MRI of the brain immediately . These will help to diagnose whether it is a stroke and whether the stroke is ischemic or haemorrhagic . If left untreated , it may lead to paralysis on one side of the body . Please discuss the management plan with a neurologist after the diagnostic tests are done . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
Avatar f tn Based on a 2001 mri I was told that I had a stroke when my mother was about 3 months pregnant with me. I was born with congenital nystagmys and astigmatism. I just completed an eeg with abnormal results. The report states that " This EEG recorded during wakefulness and drowsiness is abnormal due to the presence of several clear-cut sharp wave discharges emanationg from the left mid to anterior temporal head region. There was no asymmetry.
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.
5621588 tn?1371089806 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. I'd like to find some other brain stem stroke survivors to talk to, as I always seem to have new questions each day. I have a peg tube for feeding and medicines.

Avatar n tn My friend had a brain stem stroke 3 years ago at the age of 39 and had all the symptoms of your husband. I will tell you it's a tough road ahead! You can go to www.judyackel.com to read about her progress.. keep in mind it's very slow. Good Luck!
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 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!!
4418279 tn?1354280970 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. I am 22 caucasion female.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, I'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.
2190999 tn?1504992491 I was worked up for MS in 2012 and thankfully everything was negative. My neuro doc said the cause of my symptoms was migraines with stroke like symptoms. In 2012 I had left leg weakness and foot drop, dizziness which lasted for months, lateral nystagmus, loss of balance etc.The reason I ask now is bc I still have left leg weakness and tingling on the entire left side of my body. The tingling is constant with intense waves of tingling.
2190999 tn?1504992491 The reason I'm posting now is bc I still have left leg weakness, hypersensitivity and constant tingling on the entire left side of my body. I've read migraines with stroke symptoms are benign but I'm wondering if I should expect things to get better. And yes I've thought about letting my neuro doc know about this, but I'm afraid she'll want to do more testing... my deductible is $3000.
Avatar f tn I went for a 2 mile walk the other day and noticed that my left leg felt like I was limping. Ever since then these symptoms have gotten worse. I just slept for like 12 hours. Do you think this could be MS? Can anxiety cause these symptoms? I was also diagnoses with factor 5 and positive ana strain. the final lupus panel was negative. Do u have any other ideas of what this could be? I appreciate any answer.
Avatar f tn Hello Dr., Thank you for the reply. My dad had a massive stroke affecting his left brain to be totally damaged as per the neurosurgeon. Its been 3 days in the ICU since his neurosurgery was done. Yesterday, the Dr told us that he has little imrpovement, he could move a little his left leg and he was yawning. But he further said that he is still not safe unless he could open his eyes and breath on his own. Because right now, he breath with the help of a ventillator.
Avatar n tn my doc put me on 100Mg of zoloft and mobic and then about an hour and a half after taking it for the first time I was in the hospital with left sided weakness, tingling, face droops, high (146 over 90) blood pressure, confusion. no stroke on ct or MRI. I stopped the medication but it happened again a week later. another MRI with contrast and still nothing. a year later and I still suffer form left sided weakness and personality changess that make me angry all the time. Nobody has any answers.
Avatar n tn Since 2002 I have lost vision in my left eye for 1/2 hour or more at a time. I experience stroke like symptoms...inability to concentrate, confusion, anxiety, etc. I lost my job as a lending officer and finance teacher due to memory loss (mainly with names, dates...words) and am at a loss as to what my problem may be. My heart rate drops into the 20's, and had a space of 2.6 seconds between beats during the halter test. Can a slow heart beat casue these symptoms?
484698 tn?1208823583 Then when I had vertigo and dizzinessness, my brain is singing its boring tune, what if it's a stroke, I might stroke out, my blood pressure is high, go and check just to be sure. So you are not alone. It is a damn struggle. I am thinking of going back to meditation. I used to meditate for many years and it really did help me get through a stressful life with career, study, divorce, being a single mum etc.
Avatar n tn I just wanted to add, that you know your body better than anyone else and if it was a TIA/Mini Stroke, those are temporary and usually do not show up on x-rays but people that do have TIA's have something like a 30% chance of having another TIA or actually stroke within the following year. So you really need to be aware of stroke symptoms and if you get any of these symptoms you need to go straight to the ER.
Avatar n tn MY BRO WHO WAS A 56 Y/O B M SUFFERED A ISCHEMIC BRAIN STEM STROKE ON 10/6/07 HE HAD A HX OF H/B WAS AT WORK WHEN STROKE ACCURRED HE WAS SEEN AT A SUBURBAN HOSPITAL WERE THEY DID A CT SCAN.
Avatar f tn i'm from India, 3 months back my father got admitted in to the hospital, due to brain stroke. Because of that he had a problem of giddiness and left side eye movement was not clear it was closed. after the treatment. Eye movements is okay.,but still he is facing giddiness problem, when he will get up & walk... that time. Consulted the Neuro doctor he said you are perfectly alright... BP level is normal.... Dr asked him to consult the ENT and Eye specialist.
Avatar m tn FOR ABOUT FOUR WEEKS I HAVE HAD A STRONG PULSE SENSATION ON THE LEFT SIDE OF MY HEAD. THE PULSE IS SO STRONG IT KEEPS ME AWAKE AT NIGHT. THEY HAVE INCREASED TO THE POINT THAT EVERY OTHER DAY IT FEELS LIKE I'M HAVING A STROKE WHEN THE PULSE INCREASES RAPIDLY FROM WHAT I'VE BEENABLE TO READ I FEEL LIKE IT'S A PARTIALLY BLOCKED CARTHOID ARTERY. I'M HAVING A CAT SCAN, MRI OF THE BRAIN, MR ANGIOGRAM OF INTRACRANIAL VESSELS AND MR VENOGRAM OF THE HEAD. I'M TRYIMG TO AVOID HAVING A MAJOR STROKE.
Avatar n tn A caused by (report says) 'traumatic left vertebral artery thrombosis' and 'embolic infarct of low brain stem and cerebellum secondary to traumatic left vertebral artery thrombosis.' So far it can only be explained/caused by squat workout with unpadded barbell across back of neck a couple days prior that maybe damaged the artery, which developed a clot which broke off pieces into my brain in 3 areas (infarcts). Blood tests for disorders or hereditary problems all show nothing.
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 f tn Sometimes they're even hard to move. It's like only part of my brain is actually 'waking up' and part of my brain is falling 'asleep' before the other half is. I also started to experience my left arm randomly going numb. There is no tingling after it 'wakes up'..the numbness just goes away. Last night I experienced about six sharp 'jabs' to the area right around where I had the stroke over a year ago. (March 10th 2011). Ever since I have had this CONSTANT..
Avatar m tn absence of left A1 segment of anterior cerebral artery in brain scan. my neurologist never even mentioned it to me!
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? There are a number of causes, which can cause numbness in the arm, face and leg, but most commonly it could be due to stroke or compromised blood supply in these areas which is extremely rare to occur. Have you ever got your blood pressure checked? Any kidney problems or diabetes? Are you obese? All these answers can help me to get to a diagnosis. What you mentioned is kind of hemiparesis. Is there any weakness or inability to move voluntarily in the limbs?
Avatar n tn Showing Occluded left Carotid and reversed left Vertabral artery due to left subclavian stenosis. His recovery has been poor and he cannot walk more than a few yards and has few activities. My questions are: 1)Why cant a Carotid Endarterectomy be done post occlussion. 2) Does it sound like his care was lacking, particularly in the tia in 1999. I cant understand why he was not considered for a cea or subclavian surgery from the start. Now his doctors say its too late for any surgery.
