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 I recently had a mild stroke in the left hemisphere of my brain. About two weeks later I started having a problem with my left arm and hand falling asleep. At first this was just an annoyance however, the tingling sensation has been happening more often and with more intensity. Could this problem be caused by the stroke? Will it eventually go away? Can I do anything to help eliminate this problem? Could someone explain why this is happening?
500374 tn?1210071413 My mom had a hemorraghic stroke at her brain stem over a month ago. She is progressing great with physical rehab but still is very confused mentally. She has very limited short term memory. It is amazing she solved some hard math problems yesterday but goes offs with crazy stories about rabbits wanting her meds and telling me to have my dad (that has been deceased 8 yrs) to do things. But I feel she will get better than she is now because we see her getting more coherant.
Avatar n tn which may or may not indicate that I have been having mild seizures. Are these symptoms of seizures, and a warning of another TIA?
Avatar f tn Radiation causes calcification of the basal ganglia and stroke causes damage to them .
Avatar m tn If symptom was just limited to facial area I would suspect mild stroke or pre-stroke. However since you are experiencing lower extremity as well as midline back I tend to agree that an MS diagnosis should be pursued. They have discovered that yeast in brain can cause onset of MS. Total elimination of refined sugar should be an immediate action. I knew someone who had same symptoms and eventually was diagnosed with MS and placed on no refined sugar as well as no yeast producing foods.

Brain is so unpredictable and some times people with mild concussion suffer from disabling symptoms for long time and some time people with severe brain injury get back to normal life within months. So you are going to be fine and nothing to worry about.
Avatar f tn what happens with significant MVR some blood fails to pumped into circulation with each stroke. To maintain adequate blood flow with a decrease in stroke volume is to increase the heart rate. The math for cardiac output is stroke volume times heart rate for one minute. Frankly, I don't believe you have significant MVR because you should also have the symptoms of shortness of breath with exertion and muscle fatigue.

Avatar f tn --ischemic stroke, right side brain, left side paralysis. My 80 yr old father had a stroke 4 months ago. About 1-1/2 months ago he started experiencing mild itching on his legs and has now become chronic all over his body. Most of his meds have rash and itching side effects. Aggrenox was just changed to Plavix, but the itching has not stopped. 325mg of aspirin is also a future consideration as a blood thinner. He was given Ativan 0.5mg two days ago to stop the itching.

Avatar f tn I had a stroke also on the left side of basal ganglia. My symptoms have been mild overall. There was a little droop of my mouth, and since then I have experienced a mild lisp --a gets a little harder to speak when I am tired. I am experiencing a mild sense of lack of motivation..and perhaps a little depression..and tiredness.. Overall I think I am doing quite well for experiencing a stroke. I hope to recover completely.. Does anyone have advice for rehabilitation? Exercises for speech..
Avatar m tn I've been smoking spice for about 3 months now and I just barely started to get a mild headache that's lasted about 2 weeks. I stopped smoking spice 3 days ago but the headache hasn't gone away. Can smoking the chemical jwh-018 give me a brain tumor?
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with a mild case of TM. I do have a lesion on my brain which can mean a high chance of going on to develop MS. But since my sx were subsiding, my neuro basically wrote me off with "no follow ups needed unless new symptoms present". My first attack was Feb 28. Well, yesterday I called to tell him that my twitches are now turning into "jerks", my hand goes numb for a second when I turned my head quickly to the left (?
595451 tn?1224099468 Sometimes stroke symptoms can manifest as MS, and vice versa, because it's damage to the brain that causes the symptoms. My first documented flare was very much like that - I felt drunk all the time, dizzy, off balance, weak, exhausted, twitchy, and found it very hard to talk coherently. Nystagmus and optic neuritis made it hard to see. I was having repeated throat spasms, and having trouble swallowing. I improved almost immediately on an oral course of steroids - Prednisone.
Avatar f tn About 3 months ago she went to the doctor because she was experiencing severe dizziness and worse than usual migraines. She was told that she had suffered a mild stroke brought on by the migraines. Further testing revealed a cyst on the brain and changes to the white matter.
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 What triggered your stroke like episode? Did it occur randomly or was there an obvious trigger? I've had similiar symptoms, which also followed two stroke like incidents. I'd be happy to help, if I can.
Avatar f tn Often oxygen-rich blood cannot be supplied adequately to the brain, causing the symptoms of a mini stroke. In severe cases, increased pressure can cause the arteries in the brain to rupture and cause a hemorrhagic (bleed) stroke. All the best to your mom http://www.savingthebrain.
