Avatar m tn Hello, I'm wondering if my symptoms are indicative of a mild stroke. I've had this same thing happen a couple of times over the last decade, with varying severity, the most recent incident being two weeks ago. I went to sleep with a headache and woke up extremely dizzy, hoping a couple more hours of sleep would make it go away, which it did not. A headache persisted for the next two days and after it was finally gone the mild dizziness and general weakness has persisted ever since.

Avatar n tn Her symptoms may be related to a urinary tract infect only and she needs to obtain a urine sample for urinalysis and culture. If her symptoms resolve with treatment of a urinary tract infection and she is not keeping too much in her bladder following urination, then further evaluation is not needed, just observation. If she persists with problems then she needs a urodynamic evaluation to obtain a better understanding of her symptoms/bladder function.

500374 tn?1210071413 I had what is believed a TIA in 2004 that left me with 80% short term memory loss and the other symptoms you mentioned. A couple of eye clots in 2005-6 also. The memory loss has improved some since 2004 with the Aricept medication and cognitive therapy, I can now add and do some subtraction. However, the multi-tasking has been getting worse with time. I have been having more mini-strokes lately so that may account for the symptoms getting worse and more loss of eyesight.

744637 tn?1250803022 Hi, It is difficult to differentiate complicated migraine from stroke. The symptoms of stroke develop very rapidly while the symptoms of complicated migraine develop insidiously. MRI and CT scan in patients of stroke shows the characteristic small vessel ischemic changes. The best treatment for migraine is recognition and avoidance of trigger. Medications like NSAIDS are used to abort acute attacks of migraine. Other medications include butalbital, isometheptene and botox.

Avatar f tn My official diagnosis came from an MS specialist in October 2008, but after the optic neuritis in August 2008, my General Neuro wanted to start DMD's. The problem is that I was newly married in June 2008, and we immediately started to try to have a child. I have discussed it up and down with my general neuro, the MS specialist and my Gynecologist. We all agreed to give it 6 months and then re-evaluate.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with chlamydia about 2 weeks after I began experiencing painful burning sensations while urinating. They gave me the "twice a day for 7 days" antibiotics and I was "cured."
