Avatar n tn Do these syptomns sound like she whould have a CAT to prove or disprove any possibilty of a Mild Stroke due to heavy Wine and Smoking? Since she is hospitalized presently recovering form her broken hip, should they also test for a stroke?
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 Blood tests for disorders or hereditary problems all show nothing. Symptoms still apparent are mild imbalance (everyday gets better) and numbness/loss of temperature sensation on right side of body (skin only - can feel pressure, touch, wind across skin, etc). No speech impediment or loss of motor skills. There is some general weakness - like i just got my *** kicked at a bar. Any chance of symptoms going away over time?
500374 tn?1210075013 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 walking, swallowing, speech. I expect improvement to continue over the next few months. The slight numbness and feelings of coldness in parts of my left side have not changed over the month since the stroke and I still feel temperataure differently on the left side. During ejaculation I can feel the pulsations, but I don't feel the 'thrill'. My questions are: Can I expect improvement in these sensory abnormalities over the next few months? Years?
Avatar f tn Get a brain MRI asap. You might have had a stroke, TIA, or damage to the small vessels in your brain. It could also be damage to your vestibular system, or vestibulo-ocular reflex. I have been through what you just described for the past 8 1/2 years. It's important to take charge of your own health sometimes! I had to, in order to find what was really going on with me.
Avatar f tn I told him how those I love were effected so much worse than he and I questioned if it may have been a mild stroke. He became defensive. He repeated what he had been saying about how his "left lower lobe was now 1/2 dead - like a gun shot". How his "upper lobe and lemming over the spinal tract was also effected". He then told me that the symptoms of my loved applied to him and that he was completely paralyzed one the left side and that he was still unable to swallow or .
Avatar n tn My husband, almost 60, was diagnosed 15+ years ago with RP, then 5 years ago with Glaucoma. Recently, he experienced a mild stroke, will virtually no loss of motor skills, speech or comprehension. But I noticed right away that his vision had changed substantially. Unfortunately, the medical community does not seem prepared to address the vision loss in any way at all. In fact, they seem to simply shrug it off -- he was already blind before the stroke, so that didn't cause it. Well DUH...
Avatar n tn The neurologist thinks these headaches are migraines and not related to the stroke, but he also says that the headache symptoms she describes are not typical in migraines. Could her headaches and cerebellum stroke be related also? I'm concerned that the doctor is being too quick to assume the stroke occured before birth when he also says that an MRI can NOT show the age of a stroke.
Avatar n tn which I unable to define if it's a blood clot or tumor. Usually person with mild stroke should not drive cause he may get massive stroke anytime which will be in coma state. If you want more info about stroke: http://www.stroke.org.uk Anyway please call your family doctor about your doubt and watch out his diet closely. Take care and warmest regards...
Avatar n tn sounds ARS is reliable, but different people might very different feeling during the scikness, someone serious sick , someone mild. if not, why experts published ARS symptoms on line and why studied them.
Avatar n tn For the past couple of weeks I have been getting mild feelings of dizziness. It occurs suddenly and intermittently throughout the day. The sudden dizziness feeling are very mild and do not inhibit my daily activities, however, it is somewhat of an annoyance and could interfere with daily activities if it were to get more serious.
Avatar n tn I had a mild stroke on Dec. 12 and I am still an emotional wreck. The teaars flow when I am under stress. my doctor gave me Nortriptyline to take, but I haven't staarted yet because of the warnings on the internet not to takeif you have a history of stroke. I called the doctor about this and his office hasn't called back yet. UNsure about meds.
1287446 tn?1313951238 Hi, Apparently you didn't suffer from any symptoms so which means other parts of brain took over. 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 m tn I go around in a stupor all the time. Could my brain atrophy account for my symptoms? Thank you!
Avatar n tn I am writing because my poor husband has been suffering with "brain zaps" for 14 months and I just need to find out if the brain zaps ever STOP. He was taking effixor for just one month and went off the drug "cold turkey." Ever since that day he has had the brain zaps daily. Some days they are so bad he is nearly knocked down and days when he can't even go to work. Othr days they are mild, but he NEVER has a day without the zaps.
Avatar m tn I recently experienced double vision when looking left so my doctor ordered brain MRI. I received a copy of the report that states the following: MRI Findings: The ventricles, sulci, and cesternal spaces are within normal limits. No midline shift or other evidence of mass effect. There are multifocal small high signal lesions throughout the periventricular white matter tracts on the T2/FLAIR images, most compatible with chronic small vessel ischemia.
Avatar m tn Dear WBrown, Your poor thing. You have probably indeed had a stroke, which is a bleed in the brain, and this has caused your symptoms. I cannot get over how you did not go to the emergency room right away. But you should go ahead on over there today, if you can. The alternative is to call and make an appointment with a doctor, but you might have to wait a few weeks to get in to see him.
220917 tn?1309788081 Is it possible I could have had a brain infection without knowing it, and it could have produced all these symptoms? Is the GH deficiency related or coincidental? I just wish I could let it go. I have two fine docs who took lots of time with me. WHat more do I want? Thanks for your time. Feel well, all!
1896811 tn?1323981959 We differ a bit in regards to what brough us to the doctor - I had stroke like symptoms. After initial dx I went for a 2nd opinion to make me feel more confident. My doc suggested it, but I already had it lined up I was so sure he was wrong. Maybe that is something that would help put your mind at ease too...Just a thought.
Avatar n tn My mother has suffered a basal ganglia stroke on the left side of the brain. The doctors are unable to get to the bleed. She is in hospital and cannot walk or move the left side. Her speech is minimal and you cannot understand some of the things she says. I was wondering if there is anychance that she will make a recovery and return to her normal healthy active lifestyle.
Avatar n tn Is it possible that certain skills could be lost from a stroke? If these are common symptoms in a post-stroke patient, I would just like to be aware of this so that I can be of support to him. Thanks very much for your expertise!
