Mild stroke symptoms symptoms of a stroke

Common Questions and Answers about Mild stroke symptoms symptoms of 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 f tn An dozen I noticed today that when I smile, only the left side of my mouth immediately goes up into a smile, if I focus on it i can make both sides smile, but otherwise it is just the one. I've also had this weird tenderness of the scalp above my right ear as well and the overall side of my face has a general tight feeling. And occasionally I'll notice that my right pupil is larger than the left. Should I be worried that these are like stroke symptoms or something else?
Avatar n tn Ironslave, I see you wrote to the original poster. I am the one who replied to her. I took my own advice and went to the section upon reading your post, and it's amazing what all can happen to a person by taking what is assumed to be a mild drug. Pretty scary stuff, to say the least. I am sorry for what has happened to you, and I wish I had some good words or advice or explanations for your terrible outcome.
Avatar f tn My mother-in-law had her gallbladder removed about 1 month ago. She is experiencing severe migraines, along with severe nausea, and the left side of her face has become numb, and droopy. The first thing we thought was a mild stroke, she was admitted into the hospital, after MRI'S, Cat-scans, countless bloodwork, and ultrasounds, stroke was ruled out. Now, her dx is vascular migraines.
Avatar n tn It wasn't Parkinson's disease. I had told someone here at work via an email but that note has since been deleted.

867582 tn?1311627397 Even her current neurologist said he was thinking that she may have had a stroke at first. The MRI of the brain and neck revealed a different story. She also was unlikely candidate for stroke because she had really low blood pressure, low cholesterol, etc. She was diagnosed with RRMS, after seeing three other neurologists who couldn't figure out what was going on. Her neurologist is now thinking she's entering chronic progressive MS because her MS just never remits.
1133274 tn?1260361928 What could possibly happen to someone who just had a mild stroke with a little blood clotting on the right side of the brain? I´m a mother of two, seperated for a couple of years now. 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...
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 m tn The MRI showed no signs of a stroke and no damage to the brain. The nuerologist simply said he had symptoms of a stroke but the MRI didn't conclusively show anything. He simply said they would treat it as a stroke because he didn;t have any answers as to what was really going on. Lather that night, my dad stated that the pins and needles were getting worse in his hand and feet as well as up his right arm.
Avatar f tn I am no professional but this seems like a stroke. A stroke is when blood is lost in one side of the brain causing dizziness, loss of motor skills, confusion, blurred vision, and other symptoms. I am not trying to scare you but a stroke is rather serious. Do some research and if you think the symptoms match up force her to see a doctor.
Avatar m tn She had a ct on her brain by her pcp but ,i told her she needs to see a neurologist. Is this the right info I gave her? She is under alot of stress but does not belive in psycologist. How serious are these symptoms?
Avatar m tn Dear Friend, I feel it was a small form of TIA. Since you already have a past history of the same, as well as considering your age factor also, i would advice you, not to take any of there symptoms lightly. Please do visit a good neurologist and take his opinion. I will not be able to give you a correct prospective, in this case, as i have not examined you, and hence am requesting you for a proper consultation. Feel free, if you want to discuss with me, post consultation.
1215331 tn?1278590953 Thanks for the advice, I saw my Dr. on Wednesday and told him about my Episode, he really didn't seem very concerned. He is sending me to an Endocrinologist, finally. It isn't related to the strange episode. It is because I have had some severe hypothyroid type of symptoms and but the tests are normal. I guess maybe he thinks the episode is somehow related to that. Oh well, If it happens again I will go to the ER.
1310611 tn?1279923843 My BP is very high most of the time and have been hopitalized for a pulse rate of 198 bpm. IT is usually high but not that high. In addition I had a heart attack at 29 and two minor ones since. I have had numerous angioplasties and angiograms........
Avatar n tn s important that you know the possible symptoms of a stroke after her having one 2 years ago. Those having had an eschemic stroke have a 25% chance of having another one within the next 5 years. The longer you wait, the more risk you put your mother in. If she did have a stroke then she may need something like coumadin and also possibly other treatments.
Avatar f tn I had a stroke at the age of 39. I am currently 41. I had a stroke in my sleep. When I woke up the next morning my left arm was completely numb and had lost complete strength. I thought perhaps it was maybe caused my a pinch nerve or something. Then my daughters came home and made dinner, they asked me to watch the dinner in the oven. By the time my daughter came back into the kitchen dinner was burning in the oven, and I had no remembrance of her even asking me to watch what was in the oven.
