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.

2078882 tn?1333486061 Woohoo!! that made my day, since my GP wasnt overly helpful with my symptoms and conditions, I was really dreading going back and having them same ol condesending conversation with him! So I have a month to monitor some of my symptoms and then hopefully will have some direction in a diagnosis the end of April! Its been a rough three weeks, with major symptoms and I feel like a burden has been lifted for now.
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?

Avatar n tn 46 yr old healthy female. 4-21-97 Had frontal right brain mild stroke due to dissecting carotid aneurysm. From day one all questions and symptoms have been responded to by doctor with "that shouldn't be happening" or "we don't know anything...there's nothing we can do." Head feels weird. can't tolerate excitement, esp. extreme visual or audio stimulation. Slight left side weakness. Always fatigued. Most abilities recovered except intellectual functions.
Avatar n tn you should go to a neurologist or a primary doctor to have this evaluated. you may have been dehydrated (and your blood pressure was too low for you). why have you lost so much weight? are you exercising too much or on a special restrictive diet? do you get enough sleep? there is a good chance that this was a mild faint spell rather than a mini-stroke but you won't know until you have a full evaluation.
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?
Avatar n tn Hi Angie , The symptoms of your mother do suggest of a mild stroke . Please go for a CT scan and MRI of the brain immediately . These will help to diagnose whether it is a stroke and whether the stroke is ischemic or haemorrhagic . If left untreated , it may lead to paralysis on one side of the body . Please discuss the management plan with a neurologist after the diagnostic tests are done . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !

Avatar n tn my dad has what seems like a mild stroke, his right side is affected and memory, bp was 200 yest he had a mild one 5 years ago, he smokes rediculous amounts and drinks most nights, what is the outlook, the doc has given him some meds and wants to see him in 2 days, he hasnt been admitted, is this a good sign?
Avatar n tn And without oxygen, nerve cells in the affected area of the brain can not work properly, and die within minutes. This leads to the symptoms of stroke such as numbness or paralysis. Depending on the vessel affected, paralysis may only manifest on one side or both. However, the usual presentation is in one side of the body. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn The neurologist did not seemed too concerned about any of this. My concern is that my daughter, about a year ago, exhibited stroke like symptoms. I took her to the ER and they were more concerned about her chronic kidney disease than the symptoms she had exhibited. My daughter is also hypertensive and has an unrepaired atrial septal defect and tricuspid valve stenosis. In addition, she has a chromosomal anomaly that affects the 4th and 6th chromosome Finally my questions....
Avatar n tn Posted By Wayne Crouse on June 02, 1997 at 23:00:11: After a mild stroke in January followed by a persistent case of Bell's palsy (3 month duration), I am concerned about my symptoms and the extent of my treatment. I live in rural Canada, where good health care is hard to find. From the day of my stroke, it took three months to see a neurologist for diagnosis. I had a (normal) CT scan and normal ECG. A cartoid ultrasound has been scheduled.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with a mild stroke in September 2009, only sign was falling alot, worse memory than before. I get lost in a conversation using just ordinary words. A week ago I was diagnosed with Benign Tremor. I want to know if Benign Tremor eventually leads to a major stroke. My research shows my doc was right.
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.
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.
