Common Questions and Answers about Left brain stroke symptoms health


Avatar f tn If a person has the symptons of a stroke ( no speech),droopy left eye,weakness on left side, headache but the MRI, CT scan EEG of heart , lumbar puncture and chest x-ray all come back normal, what could be wrong.
Avatar f tn Anxiety can cause one to believe they are experiencing symptoms anywhere from a brain tumor, to a heart attack, to stroke. Only to find out that they are perfectly fine and that its all in their head. I believe that you are experiencing anxiety symptoms not brain tumor symptoms.

Avatar n tn Please, do not let this scare you, because not being a health professional, I can easily be wrong, but it sounds like symptoms of a stroke. However, as I just said, I am not a doctor. So to be safe than sorry, please see your doctor. There is still time to catch this and take care of it. Please keep us posted on updates.
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 f tn As soon as she started blood thinners, her symptoms went away. The doctors said she had a stroke because an artery in her spinal cord was being squished by a bone in her neck. Has anyone else had this problem? The doctors say that surgery is inevitable. Are there any other options?
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 f tn I went home and 5 days later Im in Emergency room with symptoms of a Stroke. I couldnt believe it. I told my nurse Im just too young to have a stroke. One of my nurses said your also to young to be on Lipitor and Digixon. So everyone is different. I had 4 different MRI's and one of them showed buldging discs in C-Spine but was told wasnt Spinal Stenosis so it shouldnt have caused a stroke to occur or symptoms. MRI came back clear but no Angiogram was performed.
368646 tn?1208393887 Docs did find a cavernous hemangioma in my brain, so I had risky brain surgery and had it removed. Unfortunately, my health still declines. I had another stroke after the hemangioma was removed and now Neuros kinda smirk at me thinking I'm making everything up. Hopefully, my appointment with the Endo (7/30) will help give me the answers I've been searching-for for years. Thanks for your responses!
Avatar m tn On September 9th, I went to the emergency room with double vision, tightness in my left knee, problems walking and weakness in my left arm and hand. The MRI showed a lesion in my brainstem and I was diagnosed with a high grade astrocytoma. I was put on 12mg of decadron a day to reduce the edema but over the next three months, the lesion got smaller and smaller.
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 Hi everyone! Hop all is well and kicking the stroke's ass!  I was just wondering, what do you do during a mini stroke? Do you get up and start walking around to get the blood flow going, (that's what I do), or do you sit down and relax? It's crazy that this mini stroke came back into my life! I had it come and go for about six months when I was younger back in 2006. When it happened back then, my whole right side of my body was paralyzed.
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 m tn The difference between a stroke and a migrqaine - speaking purely from personal experience here and what the neurologist has told me - is that with a stroke I got the symptoms of left-sided numbness, head floppiness, slurred speech etc., all at once and instantaneously whereas with a migraine I get the same symptoms but they come on gradually, like the numbness is 'flowing' down my left side from top to bottom.
Avatar n tn and work with stroke victims , Look up water shed strokes...
Avatar f tn then at age 16 l suffered a brain hemorage and anorusem and have rehabilited myself back to good health but as a result of my stroke l dont have use of my left arm and wich makes gtting into sexul positions very difficult. . l am now 46 years old and a very happily m arried man but have never been able to ejaculate during sexual activity.
Avatar f tn He is still unable to move the entire left arm and fingers, and his left leg. His personality has changed, although he appears to have recovered about 90% of his previous cognitive ability. Depression after the stroke has been severe. Does anyone know of treatment that might help my son reecover the use of the paralyzed limbs? He is only 31 yrs. old, and has gone from a healthy, happy young man, to a depressed disabled person.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, my dad has just had an MRI showing T2 hyperintensity in the left thalamus and left posterior pariteal lobe. He has no other health conditions apart from ventricular tachycardia which is well controlled and also suffers from regular neck pain and headaches. They intially though it was an atypical migraine, but the MRI said it may be a sub-acute infarct. Does anyone know if chronic headaches and migraines can cause this? Also, how significant is it.
Avatar f tn ve been having minor yet annoying health problems for the past three years. IT all started with a stroke like episode that left me weak and numb on the left side. I was given a lot of bloodwork a tremendous amount of tests including seven brain MRIs two MRAs an LP Thyroid tests an opthamologic exam and really got no diagnosis. I was told I had two unknown spots on my brain a venous angioma, scar tissue, and spinal fluid. Af one point the neurologist felt i had an aneurysm.
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 f tn How is your father doing? My mother had the same brain bleed (stroke like symptoms affected her speech & not using her right arm) but we elected instead of surgery to take her off Warfarin (which was thinning the blood) and let the body reabsorb the blood back into the body. She is very sleepy/doppy acting.. we thing because they put her on anti-seizure drug. Doesn't talk much & was eating with her eyes closed.
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 His first stroke years ago was ischemic. The others they think work hemorrapagic. This most recent afftected the right side of the brain. The doctor thinks now there is a heart problem he just can't prove it yet. THey are still running multiple tests.
