Avatar n tn I was released after 3 days and doctors are still confused. I have mini stroke or seizure? as my dx. They released with with aspirin and a pat on the back. First day my arm went linp and I went to call for help my mouth would not move and my speech was slurred, it only lasted a minute. 2nd day, I went to yell at my dog for stealing food and my left leg went limp and again my speech slurred.
Avatar m tn I suffered several mini strokes which left my left side weak. I have had a ct scan done on my brain and they found that I have white circles with black in the middle of them. What are they?
Avatar n tn They then sent me to the ER in the ambulance they found that my blood glucose level was low-never had an issue before. They gave me an Chest Xray, CT scan and blood work all came back normal but they decided to keep me for observation. The next morning I had an MRI with contrast again normal. A Nurologist then came and did a very quick assesment and sent me home with diagnois of occipital Nuralgia.
Avatar m tn They did tests, finally a CT scan. Revealed a history of ischemic episodes. TIAs? Not abolutely clear what happened. I started taking baby aspirin once a day. No incidents since that I know of.

Avatar n tn I'm a 76 year old lady who recently spent a week in the hospital because of episodes of TIA. After a MRI a CT scan, EEG, and ECG, they told me I had a mild stroke. While in the hospital they put me in heparin drip to thin my blood to start with, then they put me on plavix. I have episodes of bad sharp pain around my left temple coming down sometimes to may face, and from time to time especially after i take my BP meds with the plavix I get nauseated and light headed.
Avatar m tn This could explain flushed cheeks and why CT scan was normal. I would also suggest blood pressure checks at your local pharmacy. You need about 8 to begin getting an accurate reading. When my pressure was up I'd have similar disorientation. But then again I had the cranial virus 4 yrs ago which has since healed nicely. But I still must watch my sodium - another something 4U to watch for - sodium. Google where it is mostly found (it's everywhere but you can at least avoid the majors right?
Avatar n tn I have a CT scan report of my grandmother who is very unwell these days..She is having temp loss of memory, high blood pressure. Could someone please please please translate this in plain English language.
Avatar n tn Dear tydaines, Thank you for submitting your question. I will answer your concerns to the best of my abilities, but please be informed that I am unable to offer a diagnosis based on your history and list of symptoms pertaining to your husband. I am limited in not having the opportunity to perform a full neurologic examination on your husband, nor am I able to review the pertinent imaging.
Avatar f tn But the first ct scan I had showed nothing it wasn't until the second ct scan that showed a tiny tiny bit and the doc said they almost missed it.
378112 tn?1199897215 After a CT scan they ruled out a tumor and told me it was pseudotumor cerebri. They started me on diamox and topamax, eyes cleared up but headaches never went away. In fact, they got worse. All they did was give me pain pills to ease them.
Avatar f tn The EKG, CT-Scan and blood work all came back normal and later during the week, so did the ultrasound on my neck arteries and the echo on my heart. My internist said it could be a mini-stroke but the symptoms persist a week later, with complete numbness of the tongue and lips. He told me it might be a side effect of my anti-depressant, Pristiq, and has taken the dose down from 100mg to 50mg. I am to report in next week to let him know what my symptoms are doing.
Avatar m tn Hi, Stroke is diagnosed through several techniques: a neurological examination, CT scans (most often without contrast enhancements) or MRI scans, Doppler ultrasound, and arteriography. The diagnosis of stroke itself is clinical, with assistance from the imaging techniques. Imaging techniques also assist in determining the subtypes and cause of stroke.
Avatar f tn Babygirl should seek medical attention. This sounds more like a Tia "mini stroke" than a seisure, but only medical experts can really tell. It's best to have it checked out.
Avatar n tn Do you suggest an MRI since that CT Scan did not show anything? I have also heard that sometimes CT scans are not accurate less than 24 hours from a stroke.
Avatar n tn My dad got worse for the 3rd time we took him back to ER who decided to do a ct scan which showed a massive right cerebellar stroke. According to the neuro surgeons his stroke happened the first time he went to the ER. I'm so upset and worried about how this will affect his life he has no balance and can't sit up straight he is 68 years old. Any advice would help, was yours on the right side? And how long did it take you to fully recover?
Avatar n tn MY HUSBAND HAD A HEAD INJURY AND WHEN HE HAD A CT SCAN DONE IT SHOWED A SMALL GROWTH WITH MINI STROKE AROUND IT .CAN THIS BE A TUMOR OR BLOT CLOT. HE SEE THE DR. WED . BUT I WANT TO KNOW IF THERE ARE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND MINI STROKESWITH OUT A INJURY.
Avatar n tn This is called a PFO (patent foramen ovalae) and is present in 20-30% of all people. A CT scan is able to see large strokes and old stroke in some areas, but a MRI scan of your brain is a much better test and should include a MRA (this looks at your brain blood vessels ie:carotids and circle of willis) To examine for the PFO ask your neurologist to order an echocardiogram with saline constrast.
Avatar n tn 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. Last night he was having eye pain and called 911.
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?
Avatar n tn About 3 hours after my symptoms started they did a CT scan - it was normal, by then, all of my symptoms were gone. About 11 hours after my symptoms started they did an MRI without contrast -- it also came back normal. I was discharged and they put "acute pheriphial vertigo" on my discharge papers. I followed up with an ENT and he said he didn't think it was vertigo.
Avatar f tn He told me to have bp rechecked with visit to family doc in 7 days. I asked about the ct scan and he said a ct scan is like 1970 black and white tv. The MRI was normal and he wasn't sure what my symptoms were but I could go home no need to stay.I probably had a TIA. I came home and am still having severe balance problems, can't ride in car..
Avatar m tn While we where in the er a neurologist came down and he had here get a ct scan and blood work done. Well a couple of hours later he came back and said there was no sign of a stroke and said it was a Complicated Migraine well i looked this up and a Hemiplegic Migraine fits my moms symptoms but tonight after an MRI another neurologist came and told me and my mom that she had a stroke. My mom is 47 great health.
Avatar n tn Was sent for a standard CT scan (no contrast) two hours after it had resolved and was told that nothing showed. I spent 7 1/2 hours Saturday at Urgent Care to be sent home and told no stroke, take baby aspirin and blood tests were normal. I am still struggling with the VA and my doctor for appropriate medical care and they keep telling me nothing is wrong because my blood tests are normal. but I am going through these episodes several times a week now and not sure anymore what to think.
Avatar n tn He went to urgent care again, where they said it could have been a mini-stroke, but to go to the er, if it gets worse. The next day, he woke up feeling the same sensation, only now in his leg as well. He went to the er where it got worse to where it was very painful and his chest was in pain. He ended up having to be admitted to the hospital where he seems to be getting worse.
Avatar n tn After about 45 minutes in the they finally did a CT scan and determined that I had had a stroke. Scary! After 2.5 days in my tiny hospitals way northern CA. I was flown to UCSF for 8 days then trandfered to a rehab hospital for a month.With slurred speech no left side mobility. All I wanted to do was get the hell out of there, back to my old life and my high heels.
