I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine.
Avatar f tn I also have a small amount of pressure behind my right eye and right side of the back of my head. When I lay down there is slight discomfort in my right ear but I lay on my left side. It hurts to use my right hand/arm because of the soreness. Is it possible that without me realizing it that I may have had a mini stroke and not know it or am I over reacting? Since then my blood pressure has been 150/90.
Avatar f tn I have always had eye twitches usually on the right side but for at least a month or so now I started with twitching but now it is actually to the point of I can feel it when it is going to happen and it makes my eye droop for the time that is is happening and kind of pulls my face.And I can feel a pressure behind my left eye.Today I actually was sitting in church and felt sharp little pains in my chest for about 5 minutes.
Avatar f tn In December 2009 for no apparent reason I lost most of the eye sight in my right eye. I was told then that was too close to the brain and that I would have to be watchful. Now this past week or so I have had a nauseating headache over that eye. About 2 weeks ago I was washing my hair and that eye burned as though it was dry. So dry it hurt. Now the weekend of 7/30 I sat down outside and my left leg went numb for about 2 or 3 minutes. Then nothing. There was no warning or pain at all.
Avatar n tn I am a 50 yo. male and have had at least one stroke confirmed. My question is the left side of my body from head to to toe is numb feeling, right hand shakes alot and I have very clumsy as of late This has been going on for approximately 2 months. I also have pain, not really a headache but pressure behind my right eye. I have recently lost my health insurance so I am unable to see my Neurologist. Any help would be apprecated.
Avatar m tn Hi, the lump may not be related to the stroke. The 'lump' could be a sebaceous cyst, a lipoma, mastoid bone infection or lymph nodes. They could also be herpes infections, cysts, yeast infections and infected hair follicles. If there is accompanying swelling, redness, discharge and fever it is most probably an infection. You may need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and initiate appropriate therapy. Regards.

Avatar m tn My question is, does that sound like a mini-stroke to you? If so, what is the possibility of a major stroke. Thank You.
Avatar n tn A retinal vein thrombosis and a retinal artery occlusion occur because of the same mechanisms that cause ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes in the brain. They just have different names. The former can be though of as "strokes in the eye".
Avatar m tn I'd get yourself looked at ASAP. Your vision is a very important and a big deal IMHO, don't waste any time getting diagnosed.

Avatar n tn Mini strokes IN the eye are caused like strokes in the brain by the arteries being blocked of the veins clotting off. The causes are legion, just a few hypertension, glaucoma, carotid arterty disese, heart problems, many different types of eye problems, diabetes, smoking, IV illegal drugs.
Avatar n tn Diagnosis by an Ophthamologist at Bethesda Naval Medical Ctr was bleeding, stroke like symptom; worse in the left eye but also occurring in the right. Test results consistent with symptoms. Immediately followed with blood work in Internal Medicine; tests specifically for eye bleeding were negative. Blood sugars are slightly elevated but she is not diabetic; blood pressure is excellent with medication. We recently returned from a European trip. The symptoms occurred upon return.
Avatar n tn A small part was left and (has not grown) b/c it was on a major artery in the brain. Over xmas he went blind in his left eye and the eye doctor said he may have had a mini stroke. He thought it was due to the tumor that was remaining. He seen his neurologist and he said it wasnt the cause. They ran all kinds of test from blood work, mri, cat scan and the artery check. And we aare waiting for the artery check results. The doctors could not find anything on the ct and mri.

Avatar f tn MRI said I had a punctate focus chronic hemorraghe in the left temporal lobe. MD said I had a mini-stroke. Neuro optomologist said the eye incident had nothing to do with the MRI. He said I had a spasm. Carotid, echo came back normal. Aorta sono had some plaque. EEG found slow brain waves in the left temporal lobe. Am scheduled for 72 hour EEG. What is the doctor trying to find? Did I have a mini-stroke or not?
639965 tn?1228344380 A TIA is a mini stroke basically and it makes me wonder if it was more than a mini stroke even though they said it wasn't.. because I still have some of the symtoms.. my eye doctor told me that my vision has gotten worse.. I told the PA that and he said my eye doctor was full of **** and the TIA and the vision problems can't be related..
Avatar m tn It is so frustrating when it does not show up on your MRI and one place tells you possible mini stroke and you go the next time and they transfer you to a different hospital and they do test afterwards and then say it's not a mini stroke because there is no evidence on the test so it must be symptomatic or stress. I am not stressed and i had one of the best days of the month when this happened.
Avatar n tn The other day I experienced the same symptoms only for a very brief period followed by a mild headache behind my right eye. If the pain is not severe is this considered a migraine? I was also diagnosed with TMJ and was told by that doctor that I was not experiencing migraines but rather symptoms of TMJ. I had burning sensations at the back of my head and difficulty sleeping so he put me on 25mg of Elavil at bed time.
Avatar f tn My vet said she might have suffered a mini-stroke and mentioned the possibility of a blockage behind the eye or a brain tumor. She said that different sized pupils were a "very bad indication." She said there was no way to know without an x-ray or catscan. She suggested I get a 2nd opinion from a specialist. In the meantime, she has given me arthritic medication for Maggie. The earliest I could get in with the specialist is in 2 weeks.
889293 tn?1241085124 Am now due to have MRI today. Consultant has said that if MRI shows damage then he is sure that I have suffered mini-stroke, but if not then its stress! Is it likely that the MRI will show something that the CT hasn't? (CT done 2 weeks after last episode MRI 5 weeks later). Also if the MRI does come back clear, should I just accept stress as the reason behind my sudden visual loss and numbness/heavyness etc in my leg?
Avatar m tn The person that you are talking about may have had a sudden loss of neurological function due to problem in the blood flow to the brain. it could have been a mini stroke with a normal CT or MRI scan. There are certain causes of mini stroke, which I hope have been excluded. These are seizures, migraines, mini stroke affecting memory areas etc. Is he a hypertensive and how is his blood glucose control?

2034625 tn?1392643292 Diplopia that I had hoped was just a mini-flare kind of thing is still here 10 days or so later and getting worse, not better. Add to that the fact that two fingers on my right had and my right toe not moving on command yesterday for the first time and I'm suspecting a new flare is trying to sneak its way into my life. Yesterday I had an appointment with my neuro that I have to drive an hour and a half to see.
