I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE. I am having mental exhaustion,confusion and altered mental state with many others symptoms to many to state.

1474856 tn?1288289049 I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system. I may need to go outside of the network to get "real" treatment, not just some Dr calling me crazy and saying my depression is an issue. i have not have a depression problem for years. This is not depression. I am sad after having this go on for over a month now & worried, but me feeling this did not cause it.
469720 tn?1388146349 Heredity (family history) and race - Your stroke risk is greater if a parent, grandparent, sister or brother has had a stroke. African Americans have a much higher risk of death from a stroke than Caucasians do. This is partly because blacks have higher risks of high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. Sex (gender) - Stroke is more common in men than in women. In most age groups, more men than women will have a stroke in a given year.
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 However, when she woke up on Monday and had no use of it, and her leg started feeling very heavy she went to the hospital. They said she had a mild stroke. She had no other symptoms and the recovery was amazing. They were all amazed. By Monday night she could lift her arm over her head, although it still felt very heavy and her fingers wouldn't do exactly what she wanted them to do. Her leg was completely better. It felt as though nothing had ever happened.
2175879 tn?1338355028 It was determined today by another doctor that I had a mild stroke, not a TIA. That explains atleast for me, why although my symptoms have improved but not gone away like a TIA is expected to. Reading all these questions on TIA sure helped me deal with this, but I think that there are other people that have had strokes and been labled as TIA's because, just like me, the stroke fixed itself, but has left its footprint.
2078882 tn?1333486061 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 if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.
350555 tn?1196587877 Well, I feel like I have symptoms of a stroke. Today my left side of my face and my left hand and fingers feel like they are tingling. More like pins and needles. I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....
1110049 tn?1409402144 When I had a stroke on 17th June my face dropped on one side. i had a bleed on left side of my brain. My left side is weak and I find talking difficult. I was taken to hospital straight away, and spent nearly two weeks there. That was 8 weeks ago. i have been struggling. My speech hardly improved, and now i have lost my voice, but that may not be due to the stroke. my walking not too bad, but cannot use my left arm and hand.
Avatar n tn First symptoms, Emergency room Doctor ruled out stroke and thyriod and B12 deficiency. Order MRI Felt like a really bad sunburn when anything touch me.
Avatar m tn Hello my symptoms started two months ago, I was in a passenger seat of a vehicle and was smoking canabis. I noticed my blood pressure seemed high and I was talking really fast and I felt a burst in my head followed by a thunderclap like headache. I thought I was going to die my mouth was very dry and couldn't swallow. Ever since then I have all kinds of symptoms, stiffness of neck, dialated pupils, blood shot eyes, weakness and very fatigue.
Avatar f tn If the stroke happened due to a bleed, then this is controlled. If it is due to worms in brain, then a long term treatment to kill the worm is started. Hence treatment also depends on the cause of stroke. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
755322 tn?1330269114 I need a rollater a lot of the time and cannot walk half a mile anymore. I can do 1/4 mile with either the rollater or walking sticks. I lurch to the left and have a left foot that wants to drag. Balance was good after the procedure but has also gone downhill over the year. I don't have as much dizziness though, just tend to tip to the left. Luckily my new smaller house has lots of walls on the left so I can lean my way were I need to go. Pain is just as bad if not worse.
Avatar m tn my 59-yr-old husband had four mild TIA's over a two year period. it was discovered his carotid artery was blocked and he had successful surgery for that. Now it's a year later and he has shakiness, balance problems, confusion and is extremely fatigued after any physical exertion. Our family doctor referred him to a neurology center specializing in involuntary movement, they are treating him for Parkinson's but to me he just doesn't fit that profile.
Avatar n tn My mother is 87 and has been complaining of numbness inside of her head (is the only way she can describe it) She started having these symptoms ever since she had eye surgery two years ago to have a caterac removed. They gave her a shot in the eye as part of the procedure. She had a mild stroke the first of the year but there was no damage . She has had 3 MRI's this year and nothing showed up other than a sinus infection and the fact that she had a mild stroke.
