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.
451975 tn?1372332199 I also experience memory loss and problems with vocabulary, and knowing someone else is also experiencing these things has made me feel less alone. I'm not used to be confined to my house and having people treat me with even more pity because now I seem to be a truly mentally challenged blind person. So I just wanted to say thank you everyone for sharing your experiences and suggesting alternative care.
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar n tn hi i had tia or mini stroke july 5. my speech were slurred and vision blurry. i have recovered well except my speech is somewhat off. my doctor said i will be on coumadin for six months. he started me out with a high dose but not i'm down to 2mg. i just try to be careful and know that if anything else happen that its in our heavenly Fathers hand.
Avatar n tn She never has regained her full memory, and I never mention stroke to her. There are pros and cons to discussing this with a patient and I have no strong opinion one way or another. Her speech continues to impropve. For example tonight there was a baby on television on "ER" and she pointed and said "Look at the little baby!" and laughed.
Avatar n tn Hang in there! My husband had a similar stroke 10-16-05 and is doing quite well. He is a 50 y/o and is recovering nicely. He too experienced paralysis on the right side (arm/leg),loss of speech (aphasia/apraxia), had a feeding tube and picc line. 1. Believe it or husband is NOW ABLE TO WALK short distances WITHOUT a cane and walk long distances with a cane. 2. His speech is coming back beautifully. He sometimes surprises himself with how he is able to hold conversations.
Avatar f tn I only had such bad memory problems the first week after having a major stroke and was diagnosed with aphasia. I am 60 years old and my friends talk about not being able to find a word that they want to say, but nothing like the memory loss that you are talking about. So take some of the suggestions offered above to help with it financially. It may be something that can be treated very easily, so again, don't panic. And wish you all the best.
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.
Avatar n tn Atypical migraines may also present with similar symptoms, which may be a consideration for you as you've had headaches with some of the episodes. TIA or mini stroke is also a possibility if you have cardiac or stroke risk factors. However, if it turns out that it is truly a seizure in which you maintain complete awareness throughout, it may be a complex partial seizure which would respond better to meds such as Keppra or Trileptal.
Avatar n tn The second they think was caused when they lowered his blood pressure it was a Ischemic stroke. The first stroke is the most severe and originated in the Putamen ( a part of the basal ganglia). The second is on the right side and I've been told it controls spatial concepts. He has started to move more today and instead of only having posturing movements he has started to bring his arms up in a more normal response.
Avatar f tn Like I said, I'm interested in all feedback -- and especially the neuro comment about stroke on both sides of the brain, and also neuropsych eval in relation to MS. My PCP did say if I have to go back to neuro, they'll find a someone else. THANKS!
Avatar f tn my name is George and I had a terrible stroke sep 1 2008....I had not received any physiotherapy and am paralyzed on the left side.Because the nurse made a mistake and wasn t watching over me, I had to have an emergency surgery to just get rid of the pressure in my brain...It left me with a very weak trunk control.and therefore I can t even transfer let alone walk....

Avatar m tn My blood showed a high count of white blood cells. At first I was diagnosed with having a mini stroke (I am only 39 years old). The symptoms lingered passed a normal episode of a mini stroke, so more tests were ran, they took every test under the sun. They took spinal fluid from my spine, it showed high in proteins, and infection.
Avatar n tn Some doctors have a heard time believing this is healthy for you, but in life before ours, women were pregnantly constantly, suckling babies, and they heardly ever had regular menstrual cycles. Just doing the mini pill back to back has saved my life, and I was a person always in the emergency room, writhing from pain, had severe migraines, depression, etc. Good luck all!
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar n tn I'm thirty five, While sitting at my computer I felt a sudden knot in my neck, then came the the blurred vision, hearing loss, and numbness of extremities. I looked at my wife and said something is wrong. We wound up in the emergency room and I had a blood pressure of 177/117. I sat in the waiting room for three hours without being seen. I eventually walked out and saw a general practitioner the following day.
Avatar n tn I am afraid if it is a sort of stroke(mini-stroke) and silently kills my brain day after day. I want to know if I should seek a second opinion. In Mrach I was attacked for about 3 weeks and after a short break of 10 days, It attacked me again in April. It almost gone now, May 03, 2005, but still stiffness in the scalp and mild heaviness in my head. Would appreciate your advice on this situation.
Avatar m tn My Mom is doing these posts with me and she is at a loss too. I really appreciate all your help and advice. Mom thinks I should see an endo again to rule out any thyroid issue or pheocromocytoma.
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 n tn I get the warning signs of vision loss with some pain, then chills, then wham pain (usually behind the eyes but not always), I try to sleep it off but sometimes the pain is to much and even that doesn't help. The next day I have super sensativity to hearing and light. Also my body is so drained that I barely can get off the couch. Has anyone found any relief with dietary changes - aside from staying away from the obvious "trigger" items.
Avatar n tn I know it might seem that I am hyper, because of my weight loss and lack of appetite and some other symptoms (palps). But when I first became hypo after RAI, I started losing my appetite and losing weight. I finally hit about 94 pounds. My endo didn't care and said I was lucky that I wouldn't have to lose weight. My GI doctor disagreed and prescribed Marinol.
544292 tn?1268886268 It's a pain, but it demonstrates your sincerety to both the Doc and yourself. 4)Though you're tired of hearing it, once you're done with being so sick, get yourself to NA. Yeah, yeah, I know what you've heard about people in "12 Step" programs. What you'll really find is what you've already started to find on this list... a few jerks, and a bunch of the best folks you'll ever know. You will all come through this. It's just hard to believe that when you're sitting in the blender.
1578997 tn?1367189852 Hi and welcome to the forum. I am sorry that you are having health issues. There are quite a lot of people here that share your frustrations with the doctors and medical care or lack of, including myself. I can only speak of my own experiences in my journey for answers. I have been fighting this fight for six years now and still remain undiagnosed.
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 Recently I have been having LEFT carotid pain, some dizziness and temporory memory loss that comes and goes. I haven't told my doctor yet but I will at my September appt. A few years ago, during my every 3 months check-up, my internal MD heard the noise in my arteries (with a stethoscope) called a "burit" which is an abnormal sound). He ordered a corotid doppler test. From the results of that he ordered a MRA...
183202 tn?1219857259 like my fingers turning dark red brown before my eyes and blood blisters forming on my finger tips (i didnt have fingerprints for the longest time because of the scars) and the muscle spasms causing my body to curl in a backwards U and my tastebuds burning and loss of hearing and eyesight....sometimes i wonder how close i really did come to dying. i heard from a drug counciler that im lucy to be alive and i believe it... just remember we've made it through the tough part.
