Avatar n tn Why should I need MRI after hearing test showed uneven hearing loss? I'm 74 and had surgery for mastoid bone removal at 6 yrs of age. Since that time, hearing loss has been greater in that ear.

1474856 tn?1288289049 trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. 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.

Avatar n tn are trying to restore hearing with steroids for about a week, no luck so far.) A CT scan with contrast (he has a pace maker) showed no tumor or mini stroke although a tinier stroke would not be seen. Our Drs. know of no correlation between Gamma globulin and these problems but the timing suggests they are related. Dr. Burrascano (we went to his lecture) says he has seen regeneration of nerves with prolonged use of Gamma globulin, at least a year. Can you shed light on our quandry?
Avatar n tn then my left ear started ringing really bad and I have discovered I have hearing loss in it. I have been really dizzy and off balance.I went to the doc and he said I had ear infection..gave me med but it didn't go away..went back..he said I had fluid buildup..gave me more meds..still.didn't help..he then sent me to a ear nose and throat doc. they ran test on my hearing and discovered I had hearing loss in both ears..she layed my head back and had me turn my head at a 45 degree angle..
Avatar f tn The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs. Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc. You have many of these symptoms.
Avatar m tn Suddenly felt unwell. Ringing in right ear. Temporary hearing loss in right ear. Dizziness. Stood up and completely lost my balance like drunkenness. Thought I was dying. Recovered a few minutes later.
Avatar n tn my da suffered a mini stroke 2 days ago. he seems alomst the same except for the short ter memory loss. is this normal? and will it go away? what can i do?
Avatar n tn It is hard to say but I am a diabetic as well, and low blood sugars can cause confusion, loss of balance, headaches, and in extreme cases you to lose control of arms and legs. But that doesn't seem to be the case, you could have made a wrong movement or something like that. High blood pressure will cause issues with the heart, but if you have a mini stroke you would most likely know. I am not a professional but I am guessing they put you on some type of pill for the blood vessel.
Avatar f tn THANK YOU FOR INFO. I HAD HEARING TEST AND MRI DONE . I HAVE 50 LOSS OF HEARING IN RIGHT EAR AND 15 LOSS OF HEARING IN THE LEFT EAR. DO TO A VIRUS THE LEFT EAR IS DECLINING. NOTHING CAN BE DONE BUT HEARING AID AT THIS TIME. IS THAT A DONE DEAL? AND I'M TO BE CHECK AGAIN IN A YEAR. NO, STROKE OR TUMOR.. THATS NERVE DAMAGE ?? THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME..
Avatar n tn Benign intracranial hypertension is another possibility that happens due to impaired CSF absorption and can cause both visual symptoms and loss of hearing. It can also be a transient ischemic attack or mini stroke. This can also cause loss of peripheral vision due to eye stroke. Please consult a neurologist. You may need a MRI of the brain. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn These remedies aside, you have considerable increased risk for stroke given your hypercoaguable autoimmune disease, and the waxing and waning symptoms may be reflective of changes in blood vessel caliber with-in your brain (AKA vasospasm) which can potentially result in stroke. Because of all of the factors mentioned above, I urge you to make an appointment with a neurologist, in a particular a cerebrovascular/stroke doctor.
Avatar n tn I had sudden complete hearing loss three weeks ago. For the first three days I also had severe vertigo, which occurred about three hours after the sudden deafness. MRI and CT scan showed my brain and inner ear are normal. The ENT doc said most likely the blood vessel in my inner ear suddenly died, like a stroke. I am very healthy before the hearing loss. My first question is what should I do to prevent this happen again in my other ear? How to prevent a stroke ?
Avatar m tn That was the best final theory for my hearing loss as well. It occurred when I sneezed hard, so it could have caused a stroke in the inner ear.
Avatar f tn Its been 5 days now and I still have ringing in my head and having trouble hearing I hear muffled sound when listening to people and the tv, I really got to pay attention when someone is talking. I already can't hear out of my right ear from when I was a child and have a hearing aid in my left ear. I was at work and there is a loud machine and normally I put my hand over my ear but a guy at work was trying to talk to me right next to the machine but it was no more than 10 seconds.
Avatar n tn is the hearing loss in the left ear and the cataract in the left eye coincendental to the stroke or is there any relationship? Thank you for your time. Dear Bob, There are two big pathways for blood circulation in the head, the anterior and the posterior circulation. The basilar and vertebral arteries are both part of the "posterior" circulation. A 30% blockage is not very significanat and usually does not produce any neurological symptoms.
Avatar n tn Actually, in fact, my otoneurologist suggested an inner-ear stroke as the cause of my sudden hearing loss, and it seemed to be the most plausible theory. I guess I was thinking of something like a brainstem stroke, you know, where you can't talk, become clumsy and dizzy, etc. Thanks for the correction, W/a/J. Nancy T.
Avatar n tn In october of 1998 I had what my doctors are calling a mini stroke. After under going several tests in the couple of months following they found that I have a atrial sepail defect in the upper chambers and slight mital valve prolapse. The cardiologist I am seeing recommends that I have the atrial septial defect fixed sugically and that I do nothing with the valve, then take asprin for the rest of my life to control clotting on the valve.

Avatar f tn My ears have been ringing a lot lately but this is the first time the hearing just seemed to disappear. Having lower back and left hip pain. Straining a lot to urinate and going every 20 minutes. Saw the new chiro today and he was great...very relaxing, but I'm sore now. Seeing the G.I. doctor on Monday. Been constipated for a couple of weeks.

Avatar f tn I have a history of hemipelgic and basilar migraines with aura that last for months two or three a day that end with loss of function from mini-stroke(s). I have had the associated hemipelgia, blood clots in eyes and loss of peripheral vision/depth perception as well as moderate/severe dementia in 2004 that waxes and wanes (and gets worse with each migraine.TIA episode). It seems that every couple of years the basal artery acts up and reeks havoc on my body.
Avatar n tn I am afraid that my husband had a stroke on 4/19/08 and all these episodes are mini strokes and leading up to a major stroke. Please help with any ideas. My husband has said he doesn't know how much longer he can go on like this. He is on short term disability right now but he has less then four months to get back to work or he loses his job and all health benefits. We are both under alot of stress due to I don't work and now I am afraid to leave him alone due to confusion, headaches.
Avatar m tn These are seizures, migraines, mini stroke affecting memory areas etc. Is he a hypertensive and how is his blood glucose control? A poor glycemic control can predispose to hyperglycemia and ketones in urine, increasing risk of stroke. He may need medicines to dissolve any clot if was detected on CT head. Systemic evaluation including glycosylated hemoglobin, electrolytes and renal function indices are important and need to be checked and corrected.
