Mild stroke after effects

Common Questions and Answers about Mild stroke after effects


Avatar f tn Hi auntsissi , I am really sorry to hear about your father’s condition .Itching could occur after stroke if the stroke is in the thalamus area of the brain which receives the sensory information of pain , touch , temperature , pressure and other sensations from all over the body . The onset may be from days to weeks after the stroke . Topical therapy with moisturizers and emollients helps alleviate the itching . Treatment with amitriptylene 50 mg a day results in resolution of the itching .
Avatar n tn She also had four CT scans done on her head after the stroke, up to about 5 months later which did not show anything that could explain her complaints. She completed a course of physical therapy which did not alleviate the symptoms. She is getting desperate. She is using a hearing aid and wears glasses. Is there any exercise, test or medication that you could suggest? She says that she would gladly undergo an operation if that was needed.
Avatar m tn and I have come to realize that every stroke is so different. For example, my father drooled after the first stroke, and after the third stroke, it stopped. He was much like Miller78's father, except mine could not read or write. He had the same impulse control issues, ran away from home, and was very fit and strong when we brought him home after the first stroke. Even with 24-hour in-home care, we could not keep him contained, and he was easily frustrated.

Avatar f tn Luckily that's not the case and my headaches are also not accompanied by any other stroke symptom but that's my only relief. You said your stroke was mild so does that mean you didn't even know you experienced one or did you have many of the symptoms and you knew right away. I've heard that some people don't know they've had a stroke until they've had tests done to confirm. I have a scheduled MRI soon and I hope I'll finally get some answers to the cause of my headaches.
Avatar n tn One of the most common after effects of strokes is severe or mild pain in various parts of the body. Pain can usually be minimized very easily with pain medication. Many will just require standard pain relief such as an aspirin while others may need something much stronger such as hospital-grade pain relief medications including morphine. Also, "aproximately 8 percent of people who have had a stroke will suffer from a neuropathic pain caused by damage to neurons in the brain".
Avatar f tn Hi. My husband had a relatively mild stroke nearly three weeks ago now. He's 54. He is progressing well but I can see many obvious symptoms remaining. We had a critical illness policy which covers stroke and if this would pay out it would make the next few months a lot easier. I have researched what we need to show the insurers but I am unsure how this is proved, and how they determine that the effects are permanent rather that temporary.
Avatar n tn My dad had a "mild" stroke 3 weeks ago. He cannot swallow and has slurred speech but he doesn't appear to have any other paralysis. He has a feeding tube in his stomach. My concern is that he sleeps ALL the time. Therapists come in and can't really work with him because they can't keep him awake very long. I've read this is normal but it has been 3 weeks and he seems to be sleeping more now than he did after the first few days of the stroke.
500374 tn?1210075013 As the brain absorbs the blood caused by the burst vessel, your mom will come back to herself. My husbands stroke was 10 months ago. One of his deficits was mild loss of short term memory. It comes and goes. Some times he would get confused about where he was at but all that is fine now. Just do memory games with your mom, buy memory game puzzles, do things that stimulate the brain. Get them brain cells connected again! Good luck to you and I hope your mom a speedy recovery!
Avatar n tn I have a question about the drug Haldol. My 77 year old mother had a mild stroke that left her left side affected. While in the CCU unit in the hospital, she became restlest, 5mg injections where issued on 3 seperate occasions within 36 hours . the last after she was moved into a private room out of CCU. 10 hours after the last injection she fell into a deep sleep (Coma Like) state. CT scans done after this found this was not caused from another stroke.
Avatar n tn Hi -- I wanted to let the list know that a PFO (a congenital hole in the heart) can sometimes be the cause of a cerebellar stroke -- it happened to me. I'm 47 and had an operation 3 yrs. ago -- after the surgery I had 3 days of intense vomiting. 2 wks. later I had a cerebellar stroke -- the symptoms were vomiting, vertigo, and complete loss of balance. The ambulance got me to the ER, and the ER drs. at my NYC hospital were great.
Avatar n tn I have had no recurrance but after hospital stay after the stroke I found out the blood in my heart pooled because my heart was not pumping the blood right and sent clot to brain. I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and A-fib. So if you don't have heart problems I guess your Strokes were caused by something else. Clot did not show up on CT. I can't do MRI's because of my defibrillator. I did not have headaches or noise problems. I did feel like I was going crazy.
Avatar m tn I do have a panic disorder so ive been told , most of my symptoms were cardiac related such as pain in my left shoulder and chest , numbness in my left arm and throat ,and flutters of heart and lungs, after having these symptoms for 3 months they have all subsided alot and im almost normal again , but lately ive had this small dull headache that goes away and comes back throughout each day its been almost a steady week with this , its getting annoying , i told my doc and they took blood , im wai
Avatar n tn They did a MRI on his brain which showed he had a mild stroke, which effects the part of his brain that controls balance. He has not had his follow-up appt. with the 2nd neurologist, but he said it probably occured during surgery. Why wouldn't the heart specialist suspect a stroke? What kind of therapy, if any may help him? Or medications? He also has experienced chest pain, since July. What kind of test would help in finding out where the pain is coming from?
Avatar n tn Re Recovery Time, Thank you for posting this. My husband had a "mild" stroke on Dec 18, and we are still trying to figure out how to process all the changes that have occurred in our lives. We're not even sure what "mild" means for he had a stroke that left his entire left side affected (with little to no sensation), but his speech, mobility and brain functions seem relatively unimpaired.
1133274 tn?1260365528 I just suffered from a mild stroke last week. I undergone all the test right after i reached the ER. I had CT scanning.... but they sent me to MR scanning because they can´t really see if i had a blood clotting. I regained the feeling on my left side after 5 hours in the hospital... I was very thankful to God since I have two small girls I need to take good care for and I can´t do my obligations if I can´t move my left side....
Avatar n tn while packing a suitcase in Atltanta to back home (BG, OH)and spent 3 days at Crawford-Long Hospital. After CAT etc. put on Heparin and an MRI showed a past stroke in rt side (c. 10 yrs ago), and the new one on lft side. My right leg/foot and arm/fingers were paralized, but gradually had use return. But after 3 months, I am still very dizzy, and the leg and hand set-up feels like heavy magnets with poor coordination.
Avatar f tn On Aug. 9, '07 as we were going out for dinner my left arm became tingly and numb, thinking it to be strange, I just looked at it for a minute and thought I should sit down, I didn't feel well, in trying to tell my husband to "call 911, something was not right"...I found that I could not speak. My husband said I was trying to talk but nothing was moving, all he could tell was I was making noise.
Avatar n tn He went to urgent care again, where they said it could have been a mini-stroke, but to go to the er, if it gets worse. The next day, he woke up feeling the same sensation, only now in his leg as well. He went to the er where it got worse to where it was very painful and his chest was in pain. He ended up having to be admitted to the hospital where he seems to be getting worse.
923105 tn?1341831249 Thank you Eddie and Rowena. This has calmed me down. Rowena, my sister had a mild stroke at the age of 40, that was 10 years ago now. She was very obese, and had just quit smoking, so they related it to stress - she does not suffer from migraines. My Mother does however.. You know sometimes the internet is a wealth of information, and other times it can scare the living daylights out of you. I really had NO idea that was a correlation between the 2.
Avatar n tn I am just wondering can side effects appear after a year of none. I am starting to taper off slowly after visiting my Dr. Most seem to think that side effects appear right away, not a year later. I have lost 12 pounds recently in less than a month and even though I have stopped the weight loss, am wondering if that could have an effect on the toprol strength. I have been told it could also be anxiety, but I am not prone to that and have never ever had this before.
Avatar n tn The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down. She is currently in a rehab hospital (March 18) with paralysis on the right side (arm and leg) and has aphasyia - she understands us but has a hard time getting her words out (she does put small phases together at times).
Avatar m tn It sounds like a white matter changes after stroke. In white matter disease or microvesicular ischemic disease of brain, pathology is associated with the brain white matter, either exclusively or in combination with grey matter changes. It occurs due to metabolism errors, exogenous toxins released by virus, autoimmune disease, leukodystrophy, demyelination, and radiation effects.
