Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?

534785 tn?1329595808 Couldn't an ischemic stroke cause my symptoms?!?!) Attending review (aka the "better" radiologist looked at this, too): Agree with above." ...I guess the pineal cyst didn't show up in the CT Scan results? I'm not sure if it even should, but I do know that this scan was not done with contrast. Thank goodness my next MRI is in a week and a half! I don't know what this "hypodense" region means, and I don't like it one bit...
Avatar m tn CT Head Stroke Protocol W/O Contrast Clinical History: Stroke Symptoms Comparison: None. Technique: Contiguous axial images obtained without IV contrast and reconstructed in the axial plane. Dose reduction techniques were utilized. Findings: Intracranial structures/Brain: There are distal vertebral and cavernous carotid artery calcifications present bilaterally. Mild diffuse bilateral cerebral atrophy. Ventricular caliber proportionate to cerebral atrophy.
Avatar n tn I am a 50 year old female. An MRI in 2003 showed "a large linear area of hypertensity on T2 and FLAIR extending from the left frontal lobe posteriorly into the left parietal lobe. The lesion is in the region of the "watershed" distribution of the anterior and middle cerebral arteries. mild porencephalic dilatation on the left frontal horn. 'prominence of the left torus tubarius in the posterior nasopharynx in the region of the eusatchian tube.
Avatar n tn Hi Karen I'm a strokee but didn't have any TIA's prior, so my interest is making sure you don't have a stroke. I think you should get your current symptoms properly checked out as they may well be the signs you are asking about. A TIA is a warning of a stroke wanting to happen & you don't want to go there. Also please pull back & rest when you have symptoms or fatigue, it's your body saying "enough".
Avatar n tn T1, FLAIR, T2 hyperintense lesion in posterior part of left putamen- lacunar infarct - MRA - moderate degree of focal narrowing of M2 segment of left middle cerebral artery -Lacunar infarct in pons -Attenuation of caliber of v4 segment of both vertebral arteries, distal part of basilar artery and both posterior artery- Due to atherosclerosis?
Avatar f tn There’s no way of knowing how many factors correlate with any one person’s magnesium deficiency, but if you find yourself ticking off a few dozen symptoms, you may want to see how many symptoms improve when you take magnesium supplements. 1. Alcohol intake—more than 7 drinks per week 2. Anger 3. Angina 4. Apathy 5. Arrhythmia of the heart 6. Asthma 7. Anxiety 8. Blood tests Low calcium Low potassium Low magnesium 9.
560501 tn?1383616340 vertebral arteries and basilar artery were within normal limits. IMPRESSION: The intracranial arterial tree is unremarkable, no evidence of vertebral basilar stenosis. Doesn't all of that testing as well as my low risk factors rule out Ischemic changes? I hope I did not bore you to death. I tried to make it as short as I could. I guess I am worried that if this is ischmic changes (which again i do not fir the criteria for) am I now at a high risk for stroke or something......
Avatar n tn I JUST READ ABOUT CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION AND IT SAYS THE SYMPTOMS ARE EYE PAIN, PULSATILE TINNITUS, NECK PAIN, ETC. I.E. A LOT OF THE SAME SYMPTOMS AS I HAVE. IT ALSO SAYS YOU CAN GET THIS FROM CHIROPRACTIC CARE, EVEN SNEEZING. DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS????? I AM VERY SCARED...DO YOU THINK I COULD HAVE THIS?
Avatar n tn tightness, aching, pounding, pressure, sensitivity, pressure behind the eyes, over the sinuses, base of the neck, also shoulders, nausea, blurred vision, thought blocking, poor concentration, confusion, numbness, tingling, vertigo, dizziness, insomnia, fainting, or stroke-like symptoms. Chronic migraine, if left untreated, can last weeks, months, or even years. I have so much pressure in my ears and in my head that I can hear my blood swooshing and hear my heartbeating.

Avatar f tn About the blood clot worry----- I truly don't believe you have one or you would have stroked out or been dead by now. (Gallows humor! Forgive me----- but it's sometimes the only type of humor I have some days.) First determine if your MRI was without contrast all the way through the procedure or if just through part of it. Some MRIs are done with no contrast at the beginning and then with contrast through the rest. Now you can see why we keep all our records.
748543 tn?1463449675 I, as most responsible medical professionals, believe in using the most conservative successful form of treatment. As one who treats patients with most severe TMD symptoms, I can assure you that my patients are unable to manage the pain associated with these conditions by simply receiving counseling on their habits. What's more is that I find that dental malocclusion is frequently one of the principle causes of the TMD.
Avatar n tn I have experienced very similar symptoms as everyone else. I will say, I too had taken Tylenol the day before as I had a Migraine from change in weather (we get a very wide range of temps this time of year - March) and it went from plus 15 to minus 8 in a day. I have low blood pressure and have had problems with cold extremeties, border line underactive Thyroid (they won't give me meds yet..), and was diagnosed with something called Reynaud's.
Avatar n tn I was just diagnosed with a 3mm aneurysm in the central cerebral artery. I have only seen my primary care doctor and he has told me we should watch it and follow-up every 3-4 months with a CT Brain Scan. Recently I have noticed at night my limbs, (arms and legs) feel very heavy and sluggish when I try to move them. It seems to get better if I get up. Does anyone know if this could be another symptom of my aneurysm. Also, do I need to see a neurosurgeon even though my aneurysm is small?
Avatar n tn I feel this too. It's like a fizzing sensation in the middle of my brain, almost like the foam on top of soda. Happens most often when I am waking up in the mornings. I have miagraines often and wonder if it might be related some way. I'm usually not having a headache during these sensations though.
Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been experiencing horrible symptoms. It seemed that the whole thing started as a sinus infection but then I went for a CT scan of sinuses and they were clear. I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much.
Avatar n tn It took me 2 years to find out I'd had a stroke/vertebral artery dissection, and several more years to discover nystagmus, then a couple more to find the BPPV as well as the Oscillopsia. I got on this forum with hope that I can spare someone else the frustrating journey that I endured. Good luck.
Avatar n tn If you've been diagnosed with Chiari 1 and they haven't mentioned surgery, you'll just need to keep track of any symptoms and get regular MRI's. The most common form of Chiari Malformation is Type 1, it often manifests later in life (not at birth, but sometimes in children) with headaches and cerebellar symptoms like dizziness and memory/concentration problems. The cerebellum in the lower back of the brain starts extending down past the skull into the spine.
551343 tn?1506834118 Thanks for starting this new group, Mrs. Aristotle!! I have been suffering with symptoms on and off for 20 yrs, but since 2006 they have been constant and worsening. I think it was around 2001 or 2002, when I knew that something was terribly wrong, due to extreme fatigue. Went to a neuro this Jan and was dismissed because I am without health ins and could not afford all the required testing.
Avatar m tn On my last opthalmologist visit I actually asked about MEWDS, AZOOR, enlarged blind spot syndrome etc and all were ruled out. I had no clinical signs. I did have an ERG when all this started and it was negative. Tell me, do the flashing lights "flash" independent of eye movement or blinking? Mine don't.
Avatar n tn I've been tested for high blood pressure multiple times and almost always have a normal reading. I have other symptoms. It feels like my body is a big balloon that is over-filled and about ready to burst. I have constant slight pressure in my head. I have major joint problems. I'm tired all the time. My family doctors seem to ignore any symptoms I have. I'm very frustrated that I cannot find help. That's why I've been searching the internet for some answers.
Avatar n tn ) type symptoms for HOURS until they subside...sometimes hycosamine will work...sometimes 4 tums...and once and a while nothing but time cures it.....I have been told IBS....and intestinal intussusuption (found on two CT scans)diverticulitis...then I started to read up on Sphinter of Oddi syndrome...and it was like I was reading stories NOT from others suffering from it...but like I had written them myself....
Avatar n tn I don't know what happened but i did notice a difference right away and asked the doctor if he had a stroke or could test if he had one.The doctor said it was probably the pain pills,but i new it was something more,i could feel it and see it he just was not himself,his personality was totally different,and it's very hard to explain to an outsider that you know somethings not right.
Avatar n tn The memory foam pillow worked for about six months to reduce the pain at night. I am seeing symptoms of compression on the left side of my body as well as the right. According to my neurosurgeon, only the right side was compressed. It would seem with so many of us out here asking these questions, there would be an answer somewhere.
